One Los Angeles man wants to look like Britney Spears so much, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he tells surgeons, “Hit me baby, one more time.”
Bryan Ray, 35, said he started receiving the surgeries 18 years ago. He sees nothing about it that’s, well, toxic.
“I’ve been doing this since I was 17 and I am not finished,” Ray told the Daily Star. “I am an ongoing work of art.”
Along with regular Botox and hair removal treatments, Ray has undergone cheek implants, lip augmentation, an eyelid lift. As well as two rhinoplasties. He indicated he’s happy with the results.
Man Spent $120K On Plastic Surgeries to Look Like Britney Spears
“Am I perfect? No, absolutely not,” he said, via the Daily Star. “[But] when I look in the mirror at myself I am very happy.”
Ray jokingly said he earned a doctorate from the “University of Spears,” and has been idolizing the pop star since childhood. He added that his goal is merely to “resemble” her, and not be a dead-on lookalike.
All of this is paid for via the money Spears earns with his medical marijuana business. The Daily Star reported it’s cost Ray around $120,000 so far.
“That was never something that was in my head, thinking I would look 100% like her,” he said. “I understand my face, my symmetry, my features and what I’ve done is work in collaboration with plastic surgeons to see what characteristics could be altered in a way that is inspired by Britney to resemble that look of hers.”
While Ray has his supporters, he can also receive some negative feedback on his Instagram account, which boasts 104,000 followers.
“I do get that people don’t understand it,” he said. “People might call me weird or crazy, but I think being open about it in the way I have will help eliminate the stigma
“It’s not for everyone, and I’m not encouraging everyone to go out and get plastic surgery. But I am encouraging everyone to be body positive in whatever way that looks like for you.”
