'Human Barbie' Valeria Lukyanova Tells 'GQ' "Race Mixing" Is Causing Beauty "Degeneration," Doesn't Believe In Feminism
Valeria Lukyanova, more popularly known as the Human Barbie, gave an explosive interview with GQ, in which she denounced feminism and said that mixed races have caused a decrease in natural beauty worldwide.
Lukyanova, 28, calls herself Amatue, a name she says came to her in a dream, and likens herself, not to Barbie, but to a spiritual being who lives on a plane elevated from the everyday reality of the masses. She does, however, admit that her standards of perfection and beauty do not come from a spiritual calling, but from Western ideals of beauty.
Human Barbie On "Race Mixing" And Feminism
“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,” Lukyanova told GQ.
As to why the Barbie standard has become such a staple of beauty ideals worldwide, causing surgeries, etc, Lukyanova answered, “That’s because of the race-mixing.”
When asked to elaborate, Lukyanova explained that people of mixed race end up with incompatible features, causing beauty "degeneration."
“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. 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,” Lukyanova said.
Lukyanova continued to give shocking quotes throughout the article, moving on from “race mixing” to the topic of motherhood and feminism with equal disdain.
“It’s unacceptable to me. The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me,” Lukyanova stated. “I’m against feminism. But what would you keep the children for? So they can get you a glass of water when you’re on your deathbed?” she added.
Lukyanova was born in Moldova and rebelled through fashion and makeup choices in her teens until she began modeling and, at 16, moved to Odessa, Ukraine, where she now resides. If Lukyanova gets her way, she won’t be in Ukraine for long. The ‘Human Barbie’ recently traveled to the U.S. to gauge media interest and tells GQ she might consider moving to Mexico.
Human Barbie Says She Is A Spiritual Teacher
She markets herself as a spiritual teacher who specializes in “out of body travel” and claims to be able to communicate with aliens. She has also expressed the desire to become a pop star.
While photos of Lukyanova as a young girl have popped up on the Internet in efforts to expose Lukyanova’s alleged plastic surgeries, Lukyanova insists that the only cosmetic surgery she has undergone is a breast augmentation, though her face and skin all look somewhat distorted.
“Don’t believe any stories about me having rib-removing surgeries – they aren’t true. The only surgery I had was the breast surgery. My mother’s waist is as narrow as mine – I inherited that from her,” she said in a 2013 interview.
Instead, Lukyanova says she follows a vigorous diet and exercise routine and manipulates her appearance with makeup. For example, in some online videos, Lukyanova shows fans how she makes her eyes appear huge using some well-drawn eyeliner.
