Photo – Bronze Statue of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez by Artist Daniel Edwards

Tuesday, August 9, 2011
Okay, we are just going to have to file this one under strange and bizarre.

Bizarre, odd, uncanny, weird, peculiar, abnormal – we’re still trying to find the words to describe this post - but here goes…

Meet 46-year-old Daniel Edwards from New York.

Daniel describes himself as an American sculptor whose art addresses celebrity and popular culture in ways that have often stirred controversy.

And his latest work is no exception.

Mr. Edwards is such a fan of pop sensations Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez that he has created a nude bronze statue of the two love birds conjoined together, standing on a base featuring a Canadian goose and a Texan Armadillo.

The simple message engraved on the base? “Justin and Selena Forever.”

The superstar’s naughty parts have been covered with a Canadian maple leaf for Bieber and a Texas star for Gomez.

We particularly liked the goose and armadillo and think it adds a touch of class and sophistication – NOT.

Now you might ask yourself why somebody would do this – but Edwards seems to be one of those artists that lives on the fringe.

Daniels Facebook page is complete with a selection of his previous artistic creations including Lil Wayne, Ja Rule, Jay Z with a white raven on his head, Kanye West with a white peacock on his head, Snoop Dog with a rooster on his head, Britney Spears giving birth to Sean Preston, and… well, you get the idea.

In fact, this current work is not the first Bieber and Gomez creation Daniel has created.

The following works are titled "Paris is for Lovers - Justin and Selena in Vegas" and "Puppy Love - Justin and Selena" - click to enlarge.

No word yet about what Edwards wants to do with his Bieber art, but initially he plans to unveil the statue at a gallery called “Dallas’s New Fine Arts” which is famous for their lewd and racy artwork.

Okay, were not trying to judge here, and we are not haters by nature, but we think somebody needs to check into Bellevue Hospital just to see if there’s a loose bolt rolling around somewhere upstairs.

We’re just saying…

If you would like to get to know artist Daniel Edwards a bit better, then watch the following video titled “The Several Severed Heads of Daniel Edwards.”

See! He’s not such a bad guy. Just a little deranged and obsessed with severed heads, art, and childhood horrors.

Kind of makes your life look really really normal about now doesn’t it?
