This may come off as strange, but the world’s best Britney Spears impersonator is actually a guy. Derrick Barry makes a living out of copying the blonde pop star’s look and dance routine’s. OddityCentral has more:
It all started a few years ago, when Derrick dressed up as Britney for Halloween. The resemblance was so striking that his friends and family were stupefied. They later told him that he should consider a career as her professional lookalike. And that’s exactly what he did.
Derrick, a drama school graduate, revealed that it takes him an hour-and-a-half to do his ‘Britney’ makeup. “Everything gets tucked away and it’s made to look perfect, it’s like a magician, there’s smoke and mirrors happening there,” he says.
When asked what he enjoys most about his job, he said: “I get to be the sexiest woman alive on stage. There’s no one, in my eyes, that’s more beautiful than Britney Spears. I feel like I don’t even work for a living because I love what I do.”
