Guy Pays £65,000 On 90 Procedures To Look Like His Idol Britney Spears
| Last updated
A 31-year-old man has spent nearly £65,000 in an attempt to look like his idol, Britney Spears.
Bryan Ray, from Los Angeles, started emulating the singer when he was just 17 when he got veneers. Since then, he's had nearly 90 procedures to keep himself looking at his best.
He's had a nose job, fat injected into his cheeks, Botox injections, laser hair removal, and lip fillers as well as others.
He explained: "Ever since I was young there was something about Britney Spears - I thought she was the perfect package.
"I was obsessed. I watched all her interviews, learned all her choreography and then paid to have the same perfect smile, as I felt that during that time we were very similar.
"I was trying to look like Britney Spears. The surgeons who designed my veneers asked me which celebrity smile I wanted to base mine on, and it was hers."
He now runs a marijuana edibles company, but hopes to get into modelling...
"Now, with my looks, I want to get into modelling. I love impersonating Britney Spears so I want to continue doing that and see where it takes me.
"I used to perform in west Hollywood, doing songs and numbers - it's still something I want to do in the future.
"I still dress up, make music videos, do lip syncing to her songs and constantly have her music playing in the background.
"So many people refer to me as 'Britney' and for a very long time friends have greeted me with the infamous quote 'It's Britney, bitch!' from her song 'Gimme More', which I absolutely love.
"Britney will always be one of my biggest inspirations. I love that she was the biggest star in the world, went through an incredibly hard time and came out on top."
So there you have it. Money well spent, I guess?
But let's look at a true lookalike... Leonardo DiCaprio's.
Leonardo DiCaprio Lookalike
Roman Burtsev, who at 33, is actually eight years younger than Leo, and has managed to make quite a good little career for himself working as a fat DiCaprio in his native Moscow, reports the Metro.
Unfortunately, Roman hasn't won an Oscar (yet), so he still has to do adverts and crap reality shows.
The advert, for Pyat Ozer (Five Lakes) vodka, sees our chubby hero starting to get pissed off with his life of fakery, with his pineapple phone and Abibas tracksuit. He really just wants to fuck off his hot girlfriend and all this fakery and go and drink vodka in a boat.
There's a weird bit
where you can see Roman in his rear-view mirror and he's got a photo of Leo
stuck on there. You can't fault the casting because Roman looks exactly like
Leo would if he'd chosen vodka over acting/sleeping with gorgeous women.
But don't for a second start pitying Roman, because he's richer than Leo in many ways, he reckons.
Speaking after Leo's Oscar success in 2016, he was quoted in the Russian press as saying: "He got an Oscar? So what? This is just a useless piece of metal. Leo doesn't have the most important thing, which is a family."

Hmm. Sorry, Roman, but I think I'd still rather be a multi-millionaire Hollywood superstar.
