Nothing says creepy love story like two young celebrities who've been melded together forever, nude and in bronze. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are the most recent couple to undergo a statue transformation through the hands of artist and sculptor, Daniel Edwards.
Edwards claims he wanted to evoke feelings of passion and connection between the barely legal love-birds by joining them together forever. Bieber is a Canadian and Gomez hails from Texas so it comes as no surprise that Edwards covered the celebrities' most intimate regions with a Maple Leaf and a Texas star.
Onlookers were in shock and awe; some exclaiming obscenities and rudeness in disgust, while others were left speechless. Considering these two celebrities are currently still in their teen years, it makes the average adult more than a little bit squeamish thinking of these two naked together; even if the statue makes them resemble conjoined twins instead of young lovers. The likeness of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez is direct, as Edwards hoped it would be, and he's unsure whether the two will ever see or appreciate his tribute to their inevitably failing Hollywood romance.
People who despise Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez will find this statue unsettling because it basically immortalizes their current puppy-love and will continue to do so for years to come. This statue will probably outlast their relationship. The pair will be forever fused together unless the sculptor deems it necessary to eventually separate them.
