Valeria Lukyanova has been in the spotlight a lot as of late, most notably for her obsession with looking like a human Barbie and her insane impossible body to match. Recently she was in the news for hanging out with her male counterpart, Justin Jedlica, 32, the real life "Ken."

The Sun reported that Lukyanova, from Ukraine, and New York native Jedlica, who has spent approximately $110,000 on various plastic surgery enhancements spent time together  at a photo shoot and didn't exactly enjoy each other's company.

Now the Sun Newspaper based in London gives readers a closer look at the life of the bizarre blond model.

The Sun reported that Valeria lives on a strict liquid-only diet, thus giving way for her tiny figure and waist that looks impossibly small, though she claims she's never had any plastic surgery on it.

Valeria also believes that she is from a distant planet. Her friend Dominica" Oleynik, and fellow Barbie lookalike said to The Sun,  "Me and Lera (Valeria), we come from the constellation of Pleiades. There, such looks are normal."

Valeria said of her blond counterpart to The Sun, "When I first saw Dominica, I immediately recognised her from our past lives."

Valeria's father is a former DJ and builder and her mother works in the military sector. She grew up in Tiraspol, Transnistria which is a Russian area in Moldova.

The Barbie lookalike says that she relies on "prana" which is a Hindu tradition that means life force, to give her nourishment, since she doesn't eat. She said to  Russian newspaper in October,  "For the last four months I've been on a liquid diet and then I plan to drink only water. After that I will live only on the prana. For many years I was on a raw food diet, but for deeper spiritual practices I need to improve myself."

Valeria is scarily skinny but is still worried about putting on weight.

 "I am afraid that I am gaining weight.  Now I'm 45kg (7st), although before I was 42kg (6st 9lbs). With time I will learn to adjust the weight in my mind," she said reported The Sun.

Though many people look at her and are critical, she says that she takes it as a compliment.

 "It's hard work but they dismiss it as something done by surgeons or computer artists.  But I don't take them seriously. I'm even flattered," she said to The Sun. "It's what success is like. I'm happy I seem unreal to them. It means I'm doing a good job."
