She’s a Barbie girl in a human world.
Valeria Lukyanova, 38, who has undergone multiple plastic surgeries to become the “Human Barbie,” recently shared her thoughts with GQ on subjects ranging from the idea of children and beauty.
During the interview, conducted by GQ Russia editor Michael Idov, Lukyanova went on to imply that interracial relationships are the main reason why society is obsessed with achieving perfection through plastic surgery.
Here’s what she had to say:
“For example, a Russian marries an Armenian,” Valeria elaborates helpfully. “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. Ethnicities are mixing now, so there’s degeneration, and it didn’t used to be like that. Remember how many beautiful women there were in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery? And now, thanks to degeneration, we have this. I love the Nordic image myself. I have white skin; I am a Nordic type—perhaps a little Eastern Baltic, but closer to Nordic.”
After her remarks, Idov called the model — who hails from Tiraspol, Moldova — a “racist space alien.”
