Human Barbie, or 'real-life Barbie,' is back in the news. 22-year-old Russian, Valeria Lukyanova is featured in the December issue of V magazine and talks at length about her life and plastic surgery, Zap2it reports Nov. 12.

Valeria is self-described as the "most famous woman of the Russian-speaking Internet." The human Barbie has numerous Youtube videos posted online in which she gives makeup and beauty tutorials.

"Many people say bad things about people who want to perfect themselves," Valeria told V. "It's hard work, but they dismiss it as something done by surgeons or computer artists. This is how they justify not wanting to strive for self-improvement."

This real-life Barbie denies making appearance her main priority!

"People don't understand that it has nothing to do with looks," she claimed. "There are many good-looking young women, but why are they completely unknown? Because looks are just a bonus."'

Valeria Lukyanova tells V magazine that she spends her days doing a beauty regime on her face, surfing the internet, posting photos of herself online, working out at the gym, getting a massage, and meditation. The human Barbie maintains that it's not "about looks" at all.
