It's pointless to try to be someone else. You aren't them, whoever they are. That doesn't mean you shouldn't get inspiration from other people, but make sure that whatever you do, make it you. If you do things for you and the way you like them, they will most likely turn out better anyway. Do things you love to do, the way you want to do them. Don't do things the way other people do because they are successful or you think they are "better" than you.
On a different note, if you want a humorous and interesting read, I would recommend reading Oscar Wilde's play, The Importance of Being Earnest. It's quite funny.
