Valeria Lukyanova made headlines last year when her “real-life Barbie” Facebook photos and YouTube videos went viral. She later paired up with Anastasiya Shpagina, a “real-life Anime” girl, and then posed for V magazine.
Now she’s back in the news because she’s made a documentary for VICE called “Space Barbie: My Life Online,” which explores how Valeria thinks she might be from space (seriously) and how passionate she is about mysticism.
She says in the video, “For along time, I thought I was from Venus. … I was around 12 to 13 years old. I used to see subtle worlds. I saw different spirits from other dimensions. But when I realised that no one else sees them, I got frightened.”
It’s quite a trip.
