Justin Bieber may want to step up his security detail.
Los Angeles songwriter, Toby Sheldon, is so obsessed with the teen star he has spent the past five years and almost $100,000 on plastic surgery to look like his idol.
The tragic laundry list of procedures Sheldon underwent in his apparent need to “look like Justin” — a 2011/12 version — include multiple Botox and Aquamid injections, and hair transplants.
As recently as this July, Sheldon went back under the knife for a controversial procedure known as “smile surgery,” in which the sides of the mouth are actually extended.
“It’s Justin’s smile that gives him his youthful look. So I had my upper lip lifted [and] my bottom lip plumped out,” the 33-year-old, who also has a fear of aging, told Closer magazine.
Although Sheldon looks nothing like the Canadian heartthrob, the musician says his friends “even call me Toby Bieber.”
Meanwhile, the real Bieber returns to his Believe world tour tonight (Oct.19) for a performance in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The singer recently kicked off a 10-week promotional series dubbed “Music Mondays,” in which he releases a new single exclusively to iTunes every Monday at midnight.
The first two singles “Heartbreaker” and “All That Matters” shot to No.1 around the world and have been mostly well received by critics.
This Monday, the 19-year-old releases “Hold Tight,” and on Tuesday drops his collaboration with Young Money rapper Tyga, “Wait For A Minute.”
Alongside these releases, two teasers for the singer’s upcoming movie-documentary Believe have been rolled out. The Jon M. Chu-directed feature opens nationwide in US theaters on Christmas Day.
In a new interview with Billboard, longtime manager Scooter Braun told the music trade,
“Justin had this complete body of work that was very different from the stuff he had done in the past — very R&B-driven, personal songs, not necessarily songs that he was thinking of as radio records. That’s why he called them ‘journals.’ They’re very, very personal to what he’s been feeling over the last six months, going through a tough time.”
Of the Believe movie, Braun says the film includes “all of the answers and insights of what’s really gone on in his [Bieber’s] life, to address all these rumors in one film.”
“It’s a more intimate look into what he’s gone through than ever before, and he is talking direct to camera and expressing himself in a way no one has ever seen,” he added.
