I’ve never really understood the whole celebrity idolization thing, but in all honesty, I don’t really care either. If Madonna is your ideal woman, weird knees and all, then good for you. Have fun in your lil fan club and stalking the perez hilton website.
But, when someone spends over $10,000 on plastic surgery to look like someone famous, it kinda peeves me. It makes me mad that people this stupid have enough money to spend on this (or the credit for it). It makes me mad that there are doctors (aka quacks) who accept money to do the surgeries instead of sending these people to therapy. It makes me mad that there are TV shows (like I want a Famous Face) to encourage these people to live out their idiocy. (TANGENT: MTV you consistently destroy all my arguments that justify reality television. STOP IT).
Celebrity lookalike plastic surgery? Stupid. But to look like a cartoon character? Now this is just crazy.
So, in today’s news, a Philipino man named Herbert Chavez got chin implants, rhinoplasty, lip injections, and hip implants (wtf?) to look like my least favorite superhero Superman.
You can find the video on this madness (not in English, but easy to get the gist) HERE and you get to see his house. It’s cool or weird or whatever.
Far more amusing is the 57 year old great-grandmother who got 10,000 pounds (currency not weight) worth of surgery to look NOTHING like Jessica Rabbit. It’s so sad… and funny… but sad. (Tangent: props to my mama for looking so beautiful without all this nonsense. You look way more like Jessica Rabbit!)
Our culture needs collective therapy.
