Resembling Beyoncé was this woman's destiny, child.
Detroit native Brittany Williams has broken the internet with her uncanny resemblance to the iconic Formation singer. The Instagram star, who works as a production planner but hints that she can sing and dance a little ("She sings, dances, writes and I am gifted in the same ways," she said in an interview with The Daily Mail), revealed the pros and cons of looking like the ultimate diva.
One challenge is simply walking about without being harassed. People are so crazy in love with her appearance that they often chase her down the street.
"I get approached all the time; whether it be on planes, at the airport or while attending events. I've also been chased, had pictures taken of me without my consent and pranks done without me knowing," she said.
And the worst incident? "A group of women once chased me and my friend to our car and began singing ‘Single Ladies’, beating my friend’s car with the heels of their shoes until we rolled down the window and took a picture with them...Most people are generally friendly though and just want a picture, they often say I look like a younger version of Beyoncé."
How does she maintain her flawless (if familiar) looks? She keeps her makeup simple and mostly dresses down. Her most expensive beauty staple is her weave.
''I'm a minimalist. I'm very basic with makeup; which I tend to wear mostly on weekends, mainly to enhance features of my high cheekbones (I'm part Native American)."
Life as Beyoncé's doppelgänger hasn't inflated her ego, though.
"I struggle with people only calling me beautiful because of who I look like rather than thinking I’m beautiful because I’m me. I’ve learnt to accept their opinions and be confident in my own skin."
Inconveniences and insecurities aside, Brittany is quick to show her admiration for Beyoncé.
"We're simply blessed to have a woman with such grace, humility, loyalty, talent and worth ethic to exist in our time," she gushed, ''She's the example of what men should seek, and girls should become."
