Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are not only teen royalty and everyone’s favorite young couple, but now they’re art, too. Sculptor Daniel Edwards (who did the statue of naked Britney Spears giving birth and naked Paris Hilton) has created a bronze statue of the Biebs and Selena and guess what? They’re naked.
The piece is called “Justin and Selena as One” and features the teens literally joined at the hip. A maple leaf, for Canada, covers Justin’s, ahem, private parts, while Selena gets a Texas Lone Star. Oh, and it also has a Canadian goose and armadillo at their feet with “Justin and Selena Forever” written on the bottom.
Let’s talk about legality here. A person is legally an adult at 18 years old in the United States. Selena Gomez recently turned 19. Legal? Yes. Still creepy? Definitely. Justin, on the other hand, is still only 17, therefore, not an adult. One could argue that because the statue’s genitals are covered, this is perfectly fine, but I’m still calling it inappropriate.
So where is this piece of art going to be displayed? Well, it will be a few different New Fine Arts stores in Dallas, which by the way, isn’t an art gallery. It’s an adult store. I’m sure you can imagine what kind of company bronze Justin and Selena will be keeping.
