This Guy Spent $175,000 To Look Like Madonna… And We Can All Agree That Was Money Well Spent

Right out of the gate, during his episode of TLC’s My Strange Addiction, this guy — Adam — admits that he’s had 18 surgeries and has spent over $175,000 to look like and emulate the style of Madonna.

Seems excessive. But okay.

For the record, I don’t care what people do with their lives as long as it doesn’t affect mine. In this case, it obviously doesn’t, but what kills me — KILLS ME — is his reasoning for turning into Madonna is basically an argument against turning into Madonna. Or at least that’s what it sounded like to me when Adam said, “With Madonna, I saw somebody who went from something to nothing, who was HERSELF and didn’t care what anybody said about her.”

So what you’re saying, Adam, is that Madonna, first and foremost, was herself and didn’t want to be anyone else. That was who she was. She was herself, with her pointy titties and silly vogue dances, and didn’t give a flying fuck what anyone thought. Right?


To me, it would seem like your transformation into Madonna, while wildly flattering, actually seems like the complete opposite of what she would want a superfan to do. Don’t you think, Adam?
