Valeria Lukyanova: Don't Call Me Human Barbie!

by at .

Valeria Lukyanova has been called a great deal of names on social media and in life, but you'll be surprised at the one that riles her up the most:

Human Barbie.

The 29-year-old Ukrainian model can't help but get people talking due to the fact that she is a living, breathing, splitting image of the iconic doll.

She finds this inaccurate as well as degrading, however, saying "I have to comply with it because it's become part of my aesthetic image."

"But I don't like it. I don't think they are right. I think it's even a little degrading and insulting, but I'm used to it now," she shared with Cosmo.

So she doesn't like it when people call her that, but she's cool using the #Barbie hashtag on Instagram posts clearly meant to get attention?

"When people look for me, they look for me with that hashtag," she explained, implying that, well, it's all part of the brand at this point.

"I'm the most popular [Barbie] copy in the world. When people say ‘Barbie,' it's clear that it's associated with me, not anyone else."

Call her what you want, she has 1.2 million followers on Facebook, and says it's because she has mastered the art of taking selfies.

"The most important thing is for the light to fall directly on the face. If it's from the side at all, the photograph is doomed to fail," she shared.

"I use filters on Instagram. Many of my girlfriends use other filters, but I don't really understand all that, so I just use the standard filters."

Sure. As for her critics, Valeria reiterated that the haters envy her body "because they don't have a pretty face or a pretty figure" like hers.

"They eat at McDonald's, and that's how they defend themselves," the 29-year-old shared. "They laugh and say that they don't need this."

"If this didn't bother them inside, they wouldn't laugh," Human Barbie notes, but in her mind, this is not the case. "They have envy."
