This man has spent over $80k on plastic surgery to look like Britney Spears
We all have a celebrity that we're a little bit obsessed with. For me, it's Kurt Cobain. I don't know why, but I find that there is something immensely intriguing about him. Maybe it's the fact that he was pretty much insane, or that his life was curtailed tragically short by the fatal concoction of an unstable mind, heroine and world fame. But while we all have a celebrity that we verge on stalking, some people get a little bit over zealous.
Meet Bryan Ray, 31, from Los Angeles, California. Bryan absolutely f**king loves Britney Spears, so much so that he has spent a whopping $80k on trying to look like her. It all started at the age of 17, when Bryan decided to get a set of veneers put in to match the smile of the "Hit Me Baby, One More Time" singer.
Since then, Bryan has gone on to have over 90 cosmetic procedures including a nose job, having fat injected into his cheeks, laser hair removal, lip fillers, Botox and more. Not done there, this fanatic also splashes $500 a month on lotions and potions to keep his skin looking youthful.
Bryan say that the reason he idolizes the singer in such a manner is because she helped him "understand" himself when he was growing up. He says that in his eyes, Britney Spears is "perfection".
The 31-year-old has learnt all of Britney's dance choreography, performs in nightclubs as the singer, and is even referred to as "Britney" by his fiends. Bryan, who runs a marijuana edibles company, said:
"I love making modifications to my face and body with the art of plastic surgery, fillers & countless other cosmetic procedures.
"Ever since I was young there was something about Britney Spears and the qualities she had that I thought 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.
"In the beginning, I was trying to look like Britney Spears, my surgeons who designed my veneers asked me which celebrity smile I wanted to base mine on and it was hers.
Bryan says that he hopes that his new looks will lead to a change of career, with the 31-year-old hoping to get into the world of 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.
"When I was younger, I did it a lot more, now I'm older 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 her infamous quote 'It's Britney, b****!' 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."
Bryan says that he is determined to look young forever, claiming that he doesn't have any wrinkles. He believes the procedures has prevented him from aging, saying that he doesn't look "a day over 17" thanks to his routine of regular laser hair treatment as well as Botox and lip fillers.
Bryan is set to feature in new show called "Plastics of Hollywood", which will focus on a talent and modelling agency for real life human dolls. The show is set to be released in the US and will feature Bryan and others trying to achieve fame through their talents, rather than their appearance.
Maybe I'm being a harsh here, but if I had paid $80k on surgery to look like someone, I would want to look like them. Sorry Bryan, but I cannot see any similarities between you and Britney, I think you should ask for a refund!
