To idolize someone is normal, but if it is too excessive, such as being too fanatical or making harmful changes, it is certainly not good. One of them if you experience changes and have difficulty distinguishing between reality or imagination.
If the changes that occur are only limited to appearance, manner of speech and attitude but still know who he is and still know the reality of course it is still within reasonable limits it's only necessary to sort out which ones are good to emulate and which are not. But if you feel that he is also an artist, feel more like or feel loved like an artist and feel it is reality or cannot distinguish between imagination and reality or have thoughts that feel strange or not according to reality they need to be aware of and need to be evaluated to professionals like psychiatrists.
It is better to approach your friend and invite him to discuss or just share stories about how he feels and things received by the environment so that he can sort out which is good can be followed from his idol or the less good.
May be useful.
