A transgender woman from the US spent $70,000 to look like her idol Britney Spears, claiming the Toxic singer's music helped her through depression.

Kara Nicole Hays told New York Daily that she forked out around $30,000 for surgery and $40,000 on hormones, therapy, clothes and cosmetics to achieve her pop princess transformation.

The 26-year-old, who grew up in a conservative part of Ohio, claimed Britney was her inspiration during tough times.

She said: 'Britney was someone that aided me through depression.

'Dancing to Britney's videos also aided me in losing weight and feeling better about myself.'

Hays told the US newspaper how her family struggled to accept her as a woman and received death threats at school.

However, she said she enjoys the attention she gets from looking like the Womanizer star and even fooled paparrazzi at a Hollywood birthday party for Britney's ex-husband Kevin Federline in 2007.

Hays said: 'I showed up with long black hair and shades. When I left, they shouted "Is that Britney?" and they followed my friend and me to our car with cameras flashing.

'I know I was inches taller than Britney, so to be mistaken at that moment was hilarious.'
