Toby Shelton Really Likes Justin Bieber
(Source) “A 33-year-old man has spent five years and $100,000 in an effort to look like his hero – teenaged pop idol Justin Bieber.
Toby Sheldon is a songwriter from Los Angeles who has used Bieber’s youthful features as the inspiration for numerous surgeries, including face fillers, a chin reduction and eyelid surgery.
Sheldon’s obsession with his appearance began when he started having treatments to prevent his hair thinning at the age of 23, but really took off when a pre-pubescent Justin Bieber hit the big-time in 2008.
Sheldon, along with hordes of preteen girls, became enamored of the pop star.
‘Once Justin shot to fame his face was everywhere and I all I kept thinking when I saw his picture was, “I want to look like him,”‘ Sheldon says.
Sheldon had already spent $8,000 on hair transplants to supplement his thinning blond locks, but he wasn’t happy with the results.
He took a picture of Bieber to his plastic surgeon to demonstrate exactly how he wanted his hair to look.
‘It took three transplants and a total of $21,000 to accurately lower my hair line, close off my temples and grow back my bangs,’ he says.
Once he had perfected his Bieber-style hair, Sheldon, who admits to a phobia of aging, decided he wasn’t finished.”
There are a lot of things I’d spend $100,000 on. A house, a car, a romantic getaway with Clooney; pretty much anything that involves food, beer or movies. What I wouldn’t spend $100,000 on is plastic surgery to make myself look like Justin Bieber. It’s kind of haunting that a 33 year old, someone who clearly doesn’t require any plastic surgery whatsoever, would not only spend that much money on plastic surgery, but do it specifically so he looks like a 19 year old pop singer. This is what you call an unhealthy obsession. If you’re fortunate enough to have this much spare cash, and you spend it on plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber, you’re insane. Plain and simple. That picture will haunt me forever.
