Selena Gomez’s wax figure is ridiculously bad

Madame Tussauds often creates wax figures that are eerily close to the originals. They have this whole process that’s similar to how Avatar was filmed where they put little dots on people’s faces and map out their features to get them just right. (At least that’s what I assumed after hearing Jane Lynch describe how they created her figure.) You can tell they do that with figures like this recent one from Kate Winslet, which looks like her creepy doppelgangey. Sometimes, though, they get it ridiculously, hilariously bad. It’s like they assign inept apprentices to do lesser celebrities. Remember Kim Kardashian’s wax figure, or Alicia Keys‘? Well here’s Selena Gomez, which our friends at Evil Beet are comparing to plastic surgery victim Jocelyn Wildenstein.

It looks like all these bad waxworks are from the Madame Tussauds in New York, which must have a wax artist who just can’t get it right.

They put the Selena Gomez figure next to her boyfriend, Justin Bieber. Look at his eyelashes and goofy hair! At least the wax version of The Biebs isn’t as bad as this one from Spain with the giant neck. Ha!

The best photos are of the Bieber fans kissing on him and throwing shade on Selena. Check out the chick throwing the double bird!






Here’s the real Selena for comparison:

    That’s Sara Rue.

  2. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    It looks like a young Marie Osmond.

  3. Beatrix says:

    hahah, that looks nothing like her. as much as I know she’s hardly talented, is famous for who she dates and is the most manufactured Disney thing ever, I will say she’s very pretty and is a slender little thing and that wax lady is anything but.

  4. Kasey says:

    This is kinda funny but so wrong. And why is it so WAXY?! Even the Beiber one next to her isn’t as waxy. I would be SO mad about this if I were her.

    You know what? I’m convinced this was done by some berserk Beiber-babe. I wouldn’t be surprised if it really was created by a fan who works as a wax artist there who has nothing but hate for Selena.

  5. wunder says:

    Light a match next to that.

  6. Lee says:

    It looks like Suzanne Sugerbaker (Designing Women). They aged poor Selena about 30 years!!

  7. ladybert62 says:

    I have never understood the attraction of wax figures.

    And egads these are horrible!

  8. Jezi says:

    Hahaha, screw the wax figures, I love the pic with the girl giving both wax figures the finger.

  9. Jackie says:

    @Lee – suzanne sugarbaker! thanks. made me laugh out loud.

  10. Silk Spectre says:

    I get a “bride of chucky” vibe from Selena and Bieber looks like Sparkles, CREEPY!

  11. lin234 says:

    @Kasey I was thinking the same thing! haha I was wondering if the wax artist had beiber fever.

    I think she is such a pretty little thing. The wax figure makes her look like she had botox, fillers, and and a lot of nip and tuck whereas Justin looks so young and petite next to her. lol

  12. Quest says:

    It looks nothing like Selena. What a miss.

  13. Denise says:

    Fug and creepy fug!

  14. Ana says:

    This proves my theory: the best (or the good ones) wax figures are in Madame Tussauds London!

  15. Seal Team 6 says:

    I won’t get into whether or not she’s talented, but she’s a really cute kid, and this wax figure DOES look like Bride of Chucky. Ack!!!

  16. ezra says:

    Selena Gomez is ridiculously bad.

  17. SueAnn says:


  18. Ron says:

    That’s Selena Gnomez!
    Not Selena Gomez!

  19. mamaT says:

    it looks like her 20 years from now with a bad eye lift.

  20. Isla says:

    That’s Selena’s pre-rhinoplasty nose. These twits annoy me to no end.

  21. Jover says:

    I guess Willow smith is next in line for canonization.

  22. Shelly says:

    I think a Bieber fan must have created Selena’s wax figure. They made her face bloated and wide, and they made her body thicker than the petite little thing she is.

  23. Rachel says:

    If Selena Gomez and Ginnifer Goodwin had a baby, that’s what she’d look like.

  24. lisa g says:

    looks like roseanne barr

  25. searching4grace says:

    Ha! I actually got a Taylor Swift vibe from it.

  26. Aqua says:

    My first thought.A young Victoria Principal when she was on a T.V. show called Dallas.

  27. gossip goil says:

    She looks like Sandra Bernhardt. Oy!

  28. arbencita says:

    They made the poor girl look like she has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome!

  29. Meanchick says:

    So this girl is wax figure worthy? C’mon. Has H-wood/Disney gotten this ridiculous? What has she done, other than act like she’s not boning the Biebs?

  30. whatevs says:

    lolol these don’t even look like them

  31. samira677 says:

    @mamaT: I was going to say the same thing. It looks like the old version of herself.

  32. Maritza says:

    It looks more like a 40yr old version of Selena Gomez, those laugh lines are way too deep. The red lipstick doesn’t help either.

  33. yoho_ahoy says:

    delta burke

  34. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    The wax figure looks like Sandra Bernhard.

  35. hillbilly in the corner says:

    Naomi Judd with dark hair…..before the last facelift that turn her into a asian bribe of frankinstien…with iodine hair…. no eyes now just itty bitty slits with false lashes……lol

  36. JQ says:

    Oh yeah…whoever worked on this wax figure absolutely hates Selena. You can’t be that inept at your craft if you work there. Yes, the person who made this thing hates her with the fire of 1,000 suns.

  37. dr. bombay says:

    The cheeks look lumpy. Ew.

  38. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    About 15 pounds too heavy? Geez.

  39. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Their wax figures look like two heroin addicted teenage parent couples! WTF is designing the recent celeb wax figures?

  40. Jack says:

    It looks like Rachel Weisz from The Mummy

  41. eternalcanadian says:

    Wow, the wax figurine of Selena looks like a streetwalker! Look at that last picture and compare with the wax picture. Geez. Yuck! 😮

    And Justin’s isn’t any better!

  42. Cerulean says:

    They made her look like one of those Latin novella actresses pushing 45. I guess if she’s still around in 20 years they’re covered.

  43. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    They’ll wax anyone.

  44. sosuzy says:

    It is definitely Marie Osmond. I just saw her in Vegas.
