Its publisher Darren G. Davis explained that people shouldn't take the magazine too seriously.
He said: 'Clearly this one was meant to be fun for people and not to educate society.
'There are some of these biographies we do for strictly the entertainment value.'
Bluewater's comics have previously featured stars such as One Direction, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato.
