The Human Barbie Internet sensation seemed too strange to be real, so GQ sent a reporter to investigate and interview the blonde that says she hasn’t done anything surgical to look so otherworldly other than get breast implants. But it turns out that plastic surgery weighs heavily on her mind.
“Human Barbie” Valeria Lukyanova caught the attention of the Internet when she began posting photos of herself looking more plastic than human as part of a doll craze. At first, Valeria maintained that makeup and her beliefs transformed her into a doll, not plastic surgery or digital alterations. Eventually she did admit to having plastic surgery, including breast implants and a nose job, but she is still criticized for having unrealistic expectations of how a woman should look, with a super slim waist and a full chest. Not to mention her oversized eyes and tiny nose. Her wide opened eyes are rumored to be the result of some sort of tortuous sounding eyelid trimming procedure, but Valeria has admitted to none of that. According to the GQ reporter, Valeria may use some post production touchups, but she eerily looks in person just like the strange photos she has become notorious for.
What isn’t surgical are the result of cosmetic enhancements, from creative makeup application to hair extensions. Much of how Valeria chooses to present herself comes from her dreams, from her nail designs to the moniker she prefers over her given name or her “Human Barbie” nickname. Instead, she prefers Amatue.
But it’s the things that come out of her mouth that are even more unbelievable than her appearance.
“Everyone wants a slim figure. Everyone gets breasts done. Everyone fixes up their face if it’s not ideal, you know? Everyone strives for the golden mean. It’s global now,” Valeria told GQ in the interview, not mentioning her own time under the knife.
She then went on to make some rather racist insinuations when talking about plastic surgery, saying, “For example, a Russian marries an Armenian, they have a kid, a cute girl, but she has her dad’s nose. She goes and files it down a little, and it’s all good,” she said. “Ethnicities are mixing now, so there’s degeneration, and it didn’t used to be like that.”
It seems that Valeria has been ingesting too much air and during the interview only consumed some sort of carrot juice concoction, saying that she is currently on a juice diet. Recently, the Human Barbie traveled to the States to meet Human Ken, who has admitted to having hundreds of plastic surgery procedures to change his look.
However, don’t expect any doll-like kids in Valeria’s future.
“The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me,” she said. “I’d rather die from torture because the worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle.”
Having kids can change a woman’s body and that may be too much for Valeria as she is devoted to keeping up her bizarre appearance.
