Bill Kaulitz, the lead singer of rock band Tokio Hotel, has his figure immortalized in wax by the artists at Madame Tussauds wax museum in Berlin, Germany. His wax figure was released for public viewing on Tuesday, September 30.
Bill's wax is seen "rocking a cropped leather jacket, a chain-link-and-leather choker and black fingernails." A number of fans who turned up for the launch struck some poses with the wax, with several of them even posing intimately with it.
Bill is the only member of Tokio Hotel who gets his figure immortalized in wax. He and his fellow band members currently are on tour. They recently won Best New Artist at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.
Being considered as a popular band, Bill and his friends recently told MTV News they found it hard to translate their lyrics from German into English. "You know it was really hard to do a set, or even to do interviews in English, because in Europe, we always had a translator with us," Bill was quoted as saying. "I think it's really hard for me ... to sing in English, because it's not my mother tongue. I really wanted it to sound natural [on the album], so it took some time in the studio, and we always wanted to do it this way: first in German, then translate everything into English. The English record is a part of us, and we really wanted to go ahead with that."
