Back in 2000, Tyra Banks played the role of a life-size Barbie in the movie Life-Size.
And people have been trying to steal her thunder ever since!!
Just kidding, she’s probably not the one who started the whole “human Barbie doll” thing; we’ve all heard of people who want to become Barbies, right??
Like Blondie Bennett, who’s not only had plastic surgery to LOOK like the doll — she’s also embarked on a hypnotherapy mission to become totally brainless like one! Wouldn’t that end in death??
Then there’s Valeria Lukyanova (above), who’s been striving to look like Barbie for years. Remember that V magazine spread that kinda felt sorta creepy?
Well, now we’re learning how she achieves her absurdly small waistline.
She doesn’t eat!! Or so she claims. Wouldn’t that end in death though??
Anyway, she’s allegedly a follower of "Breatharianism" (the words "breath" and "air" sort of squished together), a practice which basically teaches that humans can be like plants and live off nothing but light and air. But while plants are allowed to add water to that equation, a Breatharian apparently doesn’t need it.
Sounds like a recipe for…absolutely nothing! Because it is!
And we’re pretty sure humans can’t live on nothing.
Human Barbies, on the other hand….ha!
