They say everyone in the world has their own doppelgänger. Throughout the years many people have come out claiming to look like or be confused with beloved celebrities. Most of the time they look nothing like the real thing, but every once in a while there comes a person that could truly have been separated at birth from a celeb. You decide which category this lookalike falls in.
Meet Brittany Williams. She is a normal girl in her twenties who lives in Detroit, Michigan, and works as a production planner. Williams claims that people very often mistake her for Beyoncé, and that fans have stopped her on the street for a selfie countless times: once a group of women desperate to meet the superstar singer even chased after her car.
While this kind of attention used to bother her, Williams in now used to it. But, she claims that any similarities between herself and Queen Bey are purely coincidental, as she does not go out of her way to make herself look more like the pop star.
Williams told the Daily Mail, “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.
“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.”

Dressing up as the superstar was an obvious choice for this year’s Halloween costume for Williams. She recreated Beyoncé’s look from her Love On Top video.
Fans first started approaching Williams about her likeness to the Lemonade singer way back in Beyoncé’s Destiny’s Child days. But their looks apparently aren’t the only thing the two women have in common.
“We both have southern roots. My parents and her parents look like they could be related,” Williams revealed.
“She sings, dances, writes and I am gifted in the same ways; we’re both strong dominant women, fearless, and God fearing.”
The Detroit production planner couldn’t help gushing about her famous doppelgänger.
“We’re simply blessed to have a woman with such grace, humility, loyalty, talent and worth ethic to exist in our time. She’s the example of what men should seek, and girls should become.”

Beyoncé may count on the help of stylists when it comes to maintaining her look, but Williams takes a more subtle approach to makeup. In fact, she describes herself as a minimalist, admitting to using cosmetics only during the weekends.
“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) and to pronounce my nose.”
“I also use setting powder to control my oily skin from time to time. Nothing is daily. I tend not to wear makeup as I don’t care for the regime for going to work,” Williams continued revealing her beauty habits.
“Usually my hair is either parted in the middle, on the side, in a top knot, or under a cap. However, I sometimes wear a weave for which the cost is equivalent to the price one would pay to maintain their hair bi-weekly.
“I’m just a cool, stylish, smart, witty girl with a vision, confidence, and ambition. I’m still dreaming that God will allow my visions to come to fruition. He has blessed me so much,” she added humbly.
