Trust me when I say that, like the term suggests, fans are the most fanatic people in the world. They are the ones who can make a celeb worthy of the fame and money or push a once celeb in the shadow of oblivion.
Where some fans are content just by secretly harboring admiration for their idols, some take the road less travelled and go ‘slightly’ overboard to prove their love for their idols.
Take these 16 fans here, who have undergone extremely painful surgeries, spending tons of money, just so that they could look like their idols!
