There is no question Brittany Williams bears some resemblance to reigning pop queen Beyonce, but would you stop her on the street and ask her to take a selfie?

Well, Williams says eager members of the Beyhive often solicit her for a photograph. She's even been chased down the street, according to an interview she gave to the Daily Mail.
"I get approached all the time; whether it be on planes, at the airport or while attending events," Williams told the gossip rag. "I've also been chased, had pictures taken of me without my consent and pranks done without me knowing."

Williams works as a production planner in Detroit, and says she shares other similarities with Queen Bey. She says she enjoys singing, her family is also southern (Beyonce's family hails from Alabama and Louisiana, and her hometown is Houston, TX), and she says her parents look very similar to Beyonce's parents.

Williams is active via her Instagram account, where you can really get a sense of how much she looks like Bey.
