A Ukranian model has become the subject of harsh criticism in the U.S. after a video of her undergoing plastic surgery to allegedly become a living doll hit the Internets. Valeria Lukyonova, 21, even landed on the pages of V magazine for their “Girl Power” issue, where her Mattel-like measurements are extremely hard to ignore.
When asked about her physical appearance and the attention it’s receiving, here’s what she had to say:
“I believe that because of it I have a responsibility to bring more good, light, and positive emotions to people. I want to share my art and my music and tell people about my spiritual ideas. When you feel happy, you want to tell everyone about it so that others become happier too. No [I’m not surprised by the negative attention]. I know the other side of celebrity is negativity, but I see it in a positive light. If people care about me, then I am on the right path. In real life, I never hear bad things.”
