In a classic example of art mirroring life, Justin Bieber is worn out and will be taking a leave of absence. His waxwork statue at Madame Tussauds in New York has been removed because of wear due to excessive touching by fans over the years.
The Beebs’ statue was not doing “justice either to the star or to the attraction” according to Madame Tussauds general manager, Bret Pidgeon. He told the New York Post newspaper that, ”This is disappointing, but hopefully we can welcome a new grown-up Justin back to the attraction in the near future.”
Yesterday, in a watershed moment, the real Justin Bieber changed his name to “Bizzle” on Instagram following reports he is planning a career in rap. UK grime MC Lethal Bizzle is not pleased with the 19-year-old bad boy pop singer’s decision. Lethal sent The Sun newspaper a statement, reading: ”Myself and the DENCH Gang ain’t happy about it. Nothing cool about the cheesiest boy in pop using your name to be ‘cool’. He needs to #Leaveityeah! #Justinthiefer.”
Meanwhile, “Bizzle” is having a few legal problems. He is considering suing his former housekeeper for “selling him out” to a British newspaper. Tatiana Vaziouk claimed in a Sunday People article published Jan. 26 that, “The drugs and hangers-on are turning Justin into a zombie.” Also, “Bizzle,” the singer formerly known as Justin Bieber, has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired license, and resisting arrest after he was caught allegedly drag racing in Miami last month.
