Cursed be my parents whose genetic mix gave me blue eyes, brown hair, and zero dance ability because had I been born with brown eyes, blonde hair, and rhythm, you can bet your ass I would've signed up to become a Britney Spears lookalike. And it would've paid, too, y'all. Big time.
British waitress Michaela Weeks quit her job years ago to become a professional Britney Spears doppelganger and you will seriously crap a a rainbow of sequins when I tell you how much she's earned. A RAINBOW of SEQUINS.
She's made roughly $483,000 looking and acting like Brit Brit.
It hasn't been all fun and games, tossing hundred dollar bills on the bed and making out on top of it, though. When Britney went a little nuts and had her meltdown back in 2007 and 2008, Michaela's career took a nose dive, as well. But now that Britney's back, Michaela's back, too.
Sounds like that Kate Middleton lookalike should take notes from Michaela. Now that the Duchess is pregnant, perhaps doppleganger Heidi Agan should call on Michaela for tips, since Britney was pregnant twice.
Granted, Heidi's experience pretending to be with child will be way more glamorous than Micheala's experience (read: fewer barefoot gas station bathroom moments, way fewer Cheetos, and waaaay fewer Kevin Federline pokes and prods) so there won't be too much overlap, but any advice is probably worthy since it's their livelihoods they're talking about.
Very lucrative livelihoods, at that. And just think, the Duchess will be relevant, i.e., impersonate-able, forever. Heidi's got a long haul ahead of her.
Michaela, on the other hand, might want to start planning for retirement.
What celebrity do people say you look like?
