There are fans of Justin Bieber. And then there’s this guy.

Los Angeles songwriter Toby Sheldon has spent $100,000 and several years trying to mold himself into a Bieber look-a-like.

Britain’s Daily Mail reports that Sheldon, 33, was inspired by the teen heartthrob’s youthful look.

Sheldon – who is 14 years older than Bieber – told the Daily Mail he spent about $21,000 on hair transplants and surgery to lower his hairline.

Despite the high price of years of surgical transformation, Sheldon says he isn’t done yet, adding “I know there is more work to be done in order to make a full transformation into Justin Bieber’s doppelganger like a nose job and jaw reduction, which my surgeon has suggested.”

The NHL eliminated 16 more days from the regular-season schedule Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, and if a deal with the players' association isn't reached soon the whole season could be lost.
