Wax Susan Boyle Looks Just Like Real Susan Boyle

Yesterday we were a little grumpy about the fact that Robert Pattinson‘s Madame Tussaud wax figures look nothing like the real deal. Meanwhile, singing superstar Susan Boyle just got a wax figure herself and we think the likeness is uncanny. We actually had to look twice to make confirm which one was real and which one would melt into a paraffin puddle if ignited. We bet she never dreamed a dream like this.

Robert Pattinson Gets Yet Another Wax Figure That Looks Nothing Like Him

Last year, Robert Pattinson‘s brooding mug was commemorated with two wax sculptures at Madame Tussaud’s in London and New York. The photo above on the right shows Wax Pattinson 2010 in all his sheepish, scruffy glory at last year’s unveiling. But this week, RPattz got yet another wax figure made in his likeness for the Berlin outpost of Madame Tussaud’s (above, left) and we’re not really thrilled about it. Sure, it has an updated, shorter hairstyle, but the face is somewhere in between Matthew Perry during his drug days and Gerard Butler on Slim-Fast. And even though Rob pulls off sexy-disheveled better than anyone, did they really need to make his outfit look like drunk guy at 3am after a wedding, with the crooked tie and messy collar? We weren’t loving the 2010 version, but we’ll definitely take it over this new, not-improved version.

Check out a few more shots of his new wax likeness, both alone and throttled by some excited fans who are just trying to live out their dream.

Justin Bieber Meets His Waxwork At Madame Tussaud’s

Bad touch, Justin Bieber! Bad touch! Oh, how we kid—Bieber and mother Patti Mallette aren’t manhandling some poor, stoic fan in these photos, they’re checking out the new waxwork of Biebs unveiled at Madame Tussaud’s in London earlier today. Can’t say this is one of their finer works (Bieber’s hair helmet looks a little wide and the face just doesn’t simmer enough), but the British Beliebers didn’t seem to mind, finally getting a chance to kiss their idol…or at least a wax simulacrum of the guy.

See photos of London and NY’s wax Biebers in the gallery below.

Kim Kardashian Unveils Hottest Candle Ever

kimwax

Kim Kardashian’s wax figure was unveiled at Madame Tussauds yesterday, causing millions of candles all over the world to feel insecure about their bodies. Kim spent days detailing the creation of the double on her blog and, apparently, it’s not at all similar to when Han Solo got sealed in carbonite (like we had assumed). The real Kim was on hand in New York to check out her completed likeness, which was dressed in a $1000 Herve Leger bandage dress and Christian Louboutin shoes. Naked candles across the country melted with jealousy.

Kim is the latest celeb to be immortalized by the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, which recently welcomed Robert Pattinson, Miley Cyrus and RuPaul into their halls. But she feels that her new, waxy self is in good company. “I would love to hang out with Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez,” she told PopEater. “I saw Usher over there, Beyonce. Maybe Beyonce can teach me a dance or two!”

Were sisters Kourtney and Khloe jealous that they weren’t also tapped by Madame Tussauds? “No! They weren’t jealous, they were so excited for me! They were the first people I called when I found out that I was getting this honor.” It’s like a new Kardashian sister! Does the doppelganger hold a candle to the real thing? Let us know!
