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.

賈斯汀.傑利卡或許是動了九十次手術、花了十萬美元使他看起來像美泰兒公司的肯尼娃娃,但他沒興趣仿效這個塑膠玩具的愛情生活。

這名美國模特兒說,外貌酷似芭比娃娃的維樂莉.路可亞諾娃「漂亮」,但對他來說不夠真實。這番話終結了網路上有關兩人可能發展戀情的揣測。

這名「真人肯尼娃娃」在《赫芬頓郵報》的訪問中,將路可亞諾娃小姐與變裝皇后相提並論,因為她靠化妝、假髮和馬甲使她看起來像芭比娃娃。

「一名真正的『人體模特兒』,就像我,堅信身體的改造,不會把它們洗掉」,他說。

「我看得出她是有才華的藝術家,但如果到頭來,她只是在攝影機拍攝的時候展現這個『真人芭比娃娃』…我不敢說我會多相信她是真正的真人芭比。」

據信二十一歲的路可亞諾娃小姐利用整形手術、植接睫毛和隱形眼鏡,把自己改造成如知名的芭比娃娃。
