We have our favorite female celebrities. With their perfect hair, skin, makeup and everything else, it is no wonder so many seek to emulate their beauty. Convict an anodyne with passion
A few have gone beyond wondering what life would be like if they looked like their favorite celebrity, and have actually made it happen. The following are real life female celebrity doppelgangers with an added twist, they are actually MEN. They were born into this world with family jewels that they have disguised as jewelry boxes. With the right makeup, wigs and style, we bet you would have a hard time telling the difference.
It’s not all about having the right look to pull it off. These celebrity impersonators pride themselves in being able to adapt to their celebrity persona and perform just like them. And you know what? They got it.
From our favorite teenage pop queen singing “Oops!I Did It Again” to the current blonde goddess singing “Circus”, many have been singing to her lyrics in clubs and in (secretly) in our cars since she released her first album. Falling from grace and picking herself back up (even after shaving off her hair), you got to love her more for that.
Impersonator: Derrick Barry
Barry’s name has been a household name since he was on America’s Got Talent. Since then, he’s been going around doings shows and even some music videos for the likes of Katy Perry.
Known for her crazy get-ups and whacky hairdo’s, no one can say our girl Gaga is not theatrical and entertaining. Sure, she’s a little weird, but you’re still singing in the shower about Alejandro (I am at least). You always wonder what she’ll wear next or put in here hair. Who knew soda cans can make a fashion statement?
Impersonator: Edward Vigiletti
Oh boy does Vigiletti’s photo shoots make you wonder if that’s not the real Gaga. He’s taken to heart her essence and portrays her perfectly. It doesn’t seem like he is performing in clubs, but maybe he should!
The idol of many, the raven haired siren of the 70’ and 80’s has been entertaining us (well, mostly our parents) from stage and screen. With enough vocal power to probably power a city, she still doesn’t look like she aged past her 30’s. Okay, maybe a little around the edges.
Impersonator: Eddie Edwards
Starting as a teenager, Edwards has been impersonating Cher, Barbara Streisand and even Bette Midler. He has performed with many celebrities and is currently performing in Vegas.
The seasoned actress and comedian has been in comedy shows, talk shows, plays and movies. Naturally funny, she has played roles that had people hooting and hollering- but in a good way.
Impersonator: Frank Marino
The man of many faces is known as “the queen of the strip” and has his own star. As the longest running headliner, his acts are famous as he covers celebrities including Cher, Madonna, Britney and Joan Rivers.
The blonde sex icon has been in films and probably inspired many wet dreams in many teenage boys and men. Her sexy roles in movies and even hotter photos are all that’s left of this high profile seductress, but hey, good enough for them!
Impersonator: Gigi Monroe
Performing mostly in Atlanta, Miss Gigi Monroe has taken gigs from all over the place from Virginia to Amsterdam. While her main look is of Marilyn Monroe, she has occasionally taken on the look of Reba McEntire.
Known for her huge voice consisting of a five-octave vocal range (sing it baby girl!), Carey was the first recording artist to have her first five singles top the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. According to Billboard magazine, she was the most successful artist of the 1990s in the United States and is currently working on her 13th studio album due to release in early 2011.
Impersonator: Josh Source
Josh Source made his way into the YouTube world back in 2008 creating responses to popular YouTube videos. Eventually, he began producing Vlogs in which he impersonates famous celebrities such as Missy Elliot, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce…his uncanny similarities to each celebrity kinda scares me! However, I can’t stop watching them even though it’s scary… kind of like a good horror flick.
Widely known as the “Queen of Country,” Reba started her career as a country music artist back in the late 70’s. However, many know her as the wisecracking single mother in her self-entitled 90’s sitcom ‘Reba.’
Impersonator: Coti Collins
This fierce impersonator has been featured in major publications such as U.S. Weekly, Country Weekly, Showtime and Las Vegas in Review for his unbelievable portrayal of Reba. In fact, Coti even had the pleasure of touring with Reba as her double in the finale of Reba’s 96-97 “Starting Over Road Show” tour.
Celine Dion is a Canadian singer who propelled into pop music history with the help of her manager and future husband, Rene Angelil, who mortgaged his home to finance her first record (umm, creepy). She is known for her powerful vocals and has sold over 200 million records worldwide.
Impersonator: Steven Andrade
Andrade is a world renown female impersonator who has mastered the diva-like ambience of Dion. From his amazing bone-structure to his near identical, home-made costume replicas, Andrade will make you swear you’re seeing Celine!
Like a virgin, Madonna introduced the world to contemporary music “the very first time.” Do I really need to say anything more about this Diva?
Impersonator: Chris America
As seen on Oprah, the A & E Channel, and even the cover of Esquire Magazine, Chris America is recognized as a top Madonna tribute artist. America travels the world and puts on performances spanning the early 80’s ‘Material Girl’ to the current ‘Sticky and Sweet’ Madonna.
Liza (with a ‘z’ or she’ll be pissed) is a actress and singer who has been around longer than most of us were even alive, yet she is not forgotten. Sporting her short hair and a voice to pack a punch, she will always be remembered as our Flora the Red Menace. I mean, with a character name like that, how could you not? It was sassy before sassy was popular.
Impersonator: Frankie Kein
Traveling far and wide, Kein has performed at different venues that are world renown. Perhaps most known is his tribute, “FOREVER LIZA”, to Liza Minnelli around South Florida. He now performs in Buenos Aires at Teatro Cine Margarita Xirgu.
