April 24, 2012: What a poet has to endure to get a little attention. Certainly not as much as the really hot Valeria Lukyanova, who has been making big news recently.
Meet 21 year old Valeria Lukyanova. She is an Ukrainian model who has made herself into a real life Barbie, the Mattel doll. Lukyanova has Barbie’s long flowing straight blonde hair, her flawless ivory skin, the dreamy wide-eyed look and the luscious heart-shaped mouth. Even more! She has her tiny, seemingly carved-out waist and her disproportionally large chest. It may not be scientifically or mathematically accurate or exact, but Lukyanova comes pretty close to a real life Barbie proportions.
Now here is where the controversy comes to play. Valeria Lukyanova makes no secret that she uses a lot of makeup; a lot of makeup. But, did she also undergo plastic surgery, to achieve the look? Or does she use Photoshop? Or perhaps she uses a little (except the makeup) of all three. It is rumored Valeria paid over $800,000 to look like Barbie. At this point, Valeria is riding the controversy (she’s not saying).
Regardless of how the Barbie look was achieved, Valeria Lukyanova has become an internet sensation. She hit Facebook on the 21st of this month. It wasn’t long before Twitter was abuzz with Valeria Lukyanova fever. If you view her video on YouTube, notice how many recent videos she has.
Is it real or is it fake? While you are deciding read a few of my poems, or just enjoy the music attached to them.
