“Human Barbie” Valeria Lukyanova has revealed the disturbing way she plans to make her tiny, doll-like waist even smaller.
According to a Feb. 26 report by the International Business Times, the model, who looks like a cross between Barbie and Rapunzel from “Tangled,” is trying to become a Breatharian by training her body to subsist on “air and light alone.” Obviously this is impossible and very dangerous – she’s basically trying to become anorexic.
Sadly, Valeria’s plans seem to be working. “In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I’m hoping it’s the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone,” she wrote on her Facebook page. It’s also being reported that her 50-centimeter waist already looks smaller.
It’s not shocking that Breatharianism attracted Valeria. She was already very into odd ideas like astral projection, which supposedly gives her the ability to leave her body to travel to other planets. Breatharians believe that they’re actually existing by chowing down on “cosmic micro-food” as they starve themselves, so of course going on this crazy diet was the next logical step for the Human Barbie. Breatharians believe that they can use meditation to achieve the capability to subsist on air and sunlight alone, and Valeria is already a big fan of meditating.
Valeria Lukyanova isn’t the first celebrity to draw attention to Breatharianism. Last year Michelle Pfeiffer revealed that she spent her early days in Hollywood under the influence of two personal trainers who believed in Breatharianism. She said she finally tore herself away from the pair once she realized that she was basically a member of a cult.
If you’re not already weirded out by the cult, chew on this: Wiley Brooks, the founder of the Breatharian Institute of America, recommends that beginner Breatharians drink only Diet Coke for 30 days. They can eat the double-quarter-pounder with cheese meal at McDonald’s occasionally, but no fruits or vegetables are allowed on the 5 magic words diet. He explains his love of McDonald’s by writing, “All McDonalds are constructed on properties that are protected by 5th Dimenstional high energy/spiritual portals.”
If Valeria wastes away and turns into sea foam while following her crazy new diet, there’s already another Human Barbie waiting to take her place. A woman named Blondie Bennett is on a quest to become as Barbie-like as possible by becoming “brainless” and “completely plastic.” She’s actually undergoing hypnotherapy to decrease her IQ. Valeria Lukyanova probably wouldn’t agree with her methods since the real Human Barbie is all about expanding her mind to make it possible to travel through space and time.
Hopefully Valeria’s mothership comes to retrieve her before she kills herself.
