Britney Spears Inspired a Fan to Spend Thousands to Look like Her — a Look at Bryan Ray’s Life Now
The Queen of Pop, Britney Spears, has made numerous headlines with her music over the years. Not only that, her iconic looks have always been the talk of the town, whether it be now or 20 years ago.
The ‘Oops I Did It Again’ singer has amassed a cult-like following for her music and looks, so much so that one particularly dedicated fan underwent 90 plastic surgeries to look like her.
Her Iconic Looks
Even after 20 years following the star’s debut in the music industry, Spears remains the style inspiration for the young generation.
In October 2020, Seventeen listed 14 of Spears’s most iconic looks for Halloween. The article mentioned that the pop star has successfully created an entire career’s worth of looks, which can be turned into Halloween costumes.
From her flight attendant look with matching blue eyeshadows from her song ‘Toxic’ to her VMA’s ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’ look with a giant python draped across her shoulders, the pop princess has gifted the world with some truly iconic looks.
Obsession with Britney
In February 2013, the ‘Toxic’ singer made headlines once again when one of her fans underwent plastic surgery - over 90 procedures - to look like her.
Bryan Ray, Spears’s fan, reportedly had over 90 plastic surgeries done to him to look like Spears; procedures that cost over $80K.
In his quest to look like his idol, Ray underwent numerous plastic surgeries like a nose job, lip fillers, fat injection, laser hair removal, and many more.
Ray mentioned that during his teenage years, the pop icon helped him understand himself better and claimed that Spears was “perfection” in his eyes.
Not only was he a huge fan of the singer, but he also performed many of Spear’s songs in the nightclubs of West Hollywood, singing her songs along with her famous dance choreographies that he mastered.
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.
It was also reported that his friends greet Ray with Spears’s infamous line; “It’s Britney, B****.”
Today, Ray is a part of the cast of the reality TV series Plastics of Hollywood, run by Marcea Iglesias, where people proud of their surgical transformations are featured.
