Valeria Lukyanova aka "Human Barbie," is not fond of kids. The 28-year-old Barbie doll lookalike told GQ Magazine that she cringes at the thought of settling down with children and starting a family. What's more, the blonde eccentric Mattel-toy wannabe is not shy about openly denouncing mixed races, citing an April 7 Hollywood Gossip report.
Lukyanova sat down in an interview with the magazine and talked about -- wait for it -- parenting and other social issues. Imagine that?
GQ 's Michael Idov traveled to the aspiring model's (perhaps) turf and met in a restaurant. Instantly, the journalist realized he was standing face to face with the spitting image of the photos circulating on the Internet. Little did he know, the meeting would be an eye-opener.
First, Valeria Lukyanova and kids don't mix.
The woman who went out of her way to transform from a plain-Jane commoner in her country to a plastic hybrid of a Human Barbie doll, unleashed a salvo of radical beliefs, not for the faint at heart.
The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me. Most people have children to fulfill their own ambitions, not to give anything.
They don't think about what they can give this child, what they can teach her," Valeria tells Idov.
On his account of his first meeting with the silicone-laden Barbie convert:
Her brand-new hair extensions, the color of Chardonnay, hang straight down, reaching her nonexistent hips. Her mouth is frozen in a vacant half-smile; the teeth are small and almost translucent. She's holding a handbag shaped like a lantern. A one-eyed smiling-skull pin perches on her sky blue top, pushed to the side by the veritable shelf of silicone around which her whole body seems arranged. In the flesh—the little of it that she hasn't whittled away with what she says is exercise and diet—Valeria looks almost exactly like Barbie. There might be some Loretta Lux-style postproduction to her photos, sure, but it's not crucial. This is live. This is happening."
Second, Lukyanova goes on to speak out against having a "family lifestyle," which she describes as the "worst" thing a person can have in their life.
On the contrary -- and Idov would likely agree -- the worst thing about their meeting together was the revelation that the living Barbie is strongly against cross-breeding of races. She suggests the co-mingling of races is the horror to natural beauty.
Idov brought up the emergence of augmented beauty today and talked about the pressures women face in being accepted.
That's because of race mixing. Ethnicities are mixing now, so there's degeneration. It didn't used to be like that. Remember how many beautiful women there were backp in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery?
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.
It didn't used to be like that. [But] thanks to degeneration, we have this."
Idov, clearly perturbed by her admission of bigotry, describes the Ukrainian model as a racist space alien in his post about their meeting.
Certainly, should a real Barbie exist, she wouldn't think or speak along those lines about children and racial diversity. But that's just it: the doll, just like many vying to create their bodies in the likeness of the popular novelty, it's a fantasy of an ideal. And moreover, no one really expects anyone to pull of the "ideal" woman look as a matter of practice.
