A fan poses with Bieber’s wax figure at Madame Tussauds Berlin last year.
Okay, Justin Bieber fans, we get it—you don’t care what type of trouble the pop star gets into, you still love him. So much so that his wax figure in Madame Tussaud’s New York City location actually had to get removed because of you.
Since there are no ropes or barriers around the figure, fans are allowed to man-handle the singer’s statue as much as they’d like. Over the past few months, the wax figure has been groped, poked, and hugged more times than one can imagine causing the figure to become disfigured and warped. Ah, the metaphors we could cook up.
The location’s general manager, Bret Pidgeon, told the to the New York Postthat this damage is “disappointing” and “no longer does justice either to the star or to the attraction”.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Officials at Indianapolis International Airport have grounded artwork inspired by troubled pop star Justin Bieber.
The airport had hired Columbus, Ind., native Tre Reising to make an art display for one of the passenger concourses.
An airport spokesman tells WISH-TV that managers expected a display about hip hop and art. Instead, Reising made multicolor letters of the word “belieber” that the singer uses as a social media tagline.
The airport is still paying Reising the $500 promised for the artwork.
The artist tells WTHR-TV he understands the airport’s decision. He says he thought travelers would have fun taking photos of the artwork and sharing them online.
Reising’s taking the piece back to his current home in New York City and hopes to eventually put it on display.
