A BRITNEY Spears superfan says he has spent more than £100,000 on plastic surgery to look like his idol.
Bryan Ray, from Los Angeles, US, has had over 100 cosmetic procedures to look like the pop queen and has vowed never to stop.

The 31-year-old has had a nose job, fat injected into his cheeks, laser hair removal, lip fillers and several Botox jabs.
He’s even had an eyelid lift to resemble “Britney’s big beautiful eyes.”
The super fan claims the Toxic singer helped him to understand himself while growing up, and has previously described her as “perfection.”
Bryan explained that his journey began when his mum paid £22,000 to get his veneers done when he was 17.
The work was allegedly done to replicate the singer’s smile and the superfan says he has never looked back.
“I’ve been doing this since I was 17 and I am not finished. I am an ongoing work of art,” he told The Daily Star.
He continued: “When I look in the mirror at myself I am very happy. Am I perfect? No, absolutely not.
“I’m human just like everyone else and I aspire for a certain level of beauty that I draw my inspiration from Britney Spears and that will never change because my admiration for her has only grown over the last two decades.
“I think she is more beautiful now than I did 20 years ago because my emotional growth is stronger and she will always be the pinnacle of beauty in my eyes and I will always strive for a beauty like hers.”
Bryan who runs a marijuana edibles (cannabis-infused food) company, says he gets Botox ever six week for maintenance and hair remove removal surgery on his face and entire body every eight to 10 weeks in order to maintain the signature look.
He also claims he splashes out around £400-a-month on lotions to keep his skin looking youthful.
But Bryan admits his “obsessive” lifestyle does attract negative attention, including those who criticise him for his plastic surgery.
“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,” he added.
“I also want to be clear that I’m not disillusioned into thinking I could bring a photo of Britney Spears to the best plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills and I would then look like Britney Spears.
“That was never something that was in my head thinking I would look 100% like her.
“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.
“I do get that people don’t understand it. People might call me weird or crazy but I think being open about it in the way I have will help eliminate the stigma.”
MEETING AN IDOL
Bryan has met his idol three times – including during her infamous meltdown in 2007.
But the most special occasion was the first time it happened when he was on holiday with his family in Maui.
He added: “It was amazing meeting her. I went into a little outdoor flea market in Hawaii and heard a really small, very soft spoken voice with a southern accent behind me.
“I’ve never been more nervous. I was face to face with my biggest idol and inspiration, she was completely not glammed, stripped of make-up, very real and so gorgeous.
“I really got to have a special conversation with her and I got to thank her for being such an inspiration to me and helping me find my identity and I also got to tell her that I loved her smile so much that I had my teeth done to resemble hers.
“She told me my smile was absolutely beautiful and that was a tremendous compliment of a lifetime.
“She left me feeling like she was a really kind and down to earth person. She happened to be the most famous woman on the planet but she didn’t act like it.
“She took the time to speak to me and had kind words that I will always hold dear to my heart…
“I will forever be a huge Britney Spears fan. She has been a huge part of my life and has been for over half of it.”
Since the end of her 13-year conservatorship in November last year, Britney has released new music and even got married.
“I am so happy for her that she is now free and she is married and her song with Elton John was incredible”, Bryan concluded
“I am excited for the future and I will always be rooting for her.”
