Famous people have been influencing the way the rest of us act and dress since the olden days. You can bet that dudes all across the country were running out to by giant stove-pipe hats as soon as Abe Lincoln became president. Fashion, slang and other aspects of taste are one thing. Some fans, however, take things to a whole other level. And that level is expensive and horrifying.
With plastic surgery a big deal both in the US and all over the world, it was inevitable that some people would go under the knife in order to resemble their favorite famous person.

19. Justin Bieber
While none of these stories are exactly uplifting, this one is especially depressing. An aspiring songwriter in Los Angeles, Toby Sheldon (definitely not his real name – it’s actually Tobias Strebel) spent $100K to look like the pop star – despite the fact that he’s older than Bieber by 14 years. After appearing on the TV show “Botched” to talk about his surgery, he was found dead in a Motel 6 in August of 2015.
