A new wax statue of Justin Bieber has just been unveiled in a museum in Brazil. That's good. What's not so good is that according to a new online poll, the new JB figure doesn't quite capture the real Biebs. In fact, only a pathetic 3.61 percent of the people polled found the statue "cute-- Looks just like Justin." 74.1 percent considered the figure "Eww Ugly..doesn't look like Justin at all." Oh well, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. What's most bizarre is that a lot of people--almost 23 percent thought the Brazilian wax Biebs was the spitting image of Cody Simpson. In fact, that's exactly how they voted: "No offense, but that look like Cody Simpson." Ang they're right.
Brazil's Dreamland Museum's newest wax celebrity is a life-size wax statue of Justin Bieber clad in a dark jacket and slacks and a red shirt. He's casually posed with his hands in his pockets and what was probably meant to be an enigmatic expression on his waxy faced. He sports JB's older, more classic, longish bowl hair cut and red sneakers. He resembles Justin Bieber--sort of. But, alas, he resembles Cody Simpson a lot more.
Brazilian wax Cody--er--Justin has larger features that are nevertheless not as fine. His faced is shaped like a parallelogram, not like an oval; and his lips, though fuller, are somehow less sensual. Unlike the real Biebs, his hair is blonde, not brown, and it seems more sloppily (and cheaply?) cut. His eyebrows are too dark and a tad too thick. His nose is a bit broader and his jawline a tad more pronounced. No offence, but... Cody Simpson.

Note: Oh well, the new statue may not look exactly like JB, but at least it looks like Cody Simpson. Unlike that hideous JB wax statue in Madrid which just looks...hideous. You can see it by clicking here. Unless you're too scared.
