Welp, looks like I found my Halloween costume. Artist Daniel Edwards, known for his disturbing unique statue of a naked, life-size Britney Spears giving birth as well as this statue of Lady Gaga that is supposed to represent 2010’s massive Gulf oil spill, is baaa-aaack. (Thank goodness. I was getting worried.) This time, the artist is tackling pop’s reigning teen king and queen, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, and he spoke to MTV News about the creation.
How did Daniel Edwards choose to salute the young couple? Via a bronze statue of the two of them naked accompanied by an eagle and an aardvark (or whatever), doy. What you cannot see in this photo is the Canadian maple leaf and a Texas lone star covering Justin and Selena’s nether regions, as the two symbols are supposed to represent where the singers are from, respectively. But we covered them with smiley faces, because this is a family show.
The piece is titled “Justin and Selena as One” and will be revealed at Dallas’ New Fine Arts on a yet unannounced date. Naked Justin Bieber, naked Selena Gomez, a Canadian maple leaf, a Texas lone star, an eagle and an aardvark together in one bronze statue? I can’t. I just can’t.
