Valeria Lukyanova has courted international controversy by transforming herself into a human Barbie using plastic surgery and dramatic make up to become “the most perfect woman on the internet”.
With currently 876,000 Facebook Fans and 7,484 Twitter followers, her tiny waist, skeletal arms and enormous blue colored contact lenses, have continuously made headlines around the world.
Ukraine’s Valeria believes that being Barbie is the embodiment of perfection, and at only 23 years of age, is determined to transform herself into a human doll. Martha De Lacey, a writer for the Daily Mail shared that a vice.com documentary-maker has gone behind the scenes with Valeria to capture her “idiosyncratic life” on film.
Apparently Valeria was skeptical to say yes to the interview, but once Vice.com agreed to do the documentary on her “spiritual and astral theories” she said yes.
Valeria genuinely believes that she is from a completely different planet (possibly Venus) but isn’t 100% sure. “She's not a fraud” said director Will Fairman. “She genuinely believes she's from another planet. 100 per cent. She's not making any money from her life - not even from the seminars she gives - which is originally why I thought she was doing this.”
“I come from a place where only love and joy exist..but I noticed the media is only interested in negativity: show someone in a bad light, show someone's mistakes. There are hate blogs and communities about me who post bad pictures about me and try and worsen my mood. Perhaps at some point I was an energy vampire, because I constantly received their negative reactions and enjoyed it. Specifically for them I created posts that would make them angry.But people who think badly of me just aren't happy in their own lives. When they are happy they will forget about me.” She says.
Valeria also added in that she only has a small group of friends who accept who for exactly who she is. “I asked myself if everything was alright with my head. I hear voices all the time and see different beings. One day I decided to visit a psychiatrist. I told him everything-He listened to me carefully and said it was very lucky it was him because with another doctor I definitely would have been taken to a special place. But he said, "I've been studying esoterism for years and can see you are psychic".
