Justin Jedlica may have had 90 surgeries and spent US$100,000 to look like Mattel’s Ken doll, but he’s not interested in imitating the plastic toy’s love life.
The US model ended Internet speculation over a possible relationship with Barbie lookalike Valeria Lukyanova when he said she was “beautiful” but not authentic enough for him.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, the “human Ken doll” compared Lukyanova to a drag queen because she relied on makeup, fake hair and corsets to look like Barbie.
“A true ‘body mod,’ such as myself, lives with a conviction to their alternations and doesn’t wash them off,” he said.
“I can appreciate that she is a talented artist, but if at the end of the day she is only presenting this ‘human Barbie doll’ on days the camera is filming … I’m not sure just how much credibility I would give her in being a real human Barbie.”
It is believed Lukyanova, 21, used plastic surgery, eyelash extensions and contact lenses to transform herself into the famous plastic doll.
