"Valeria Lukyanova, better known as Human Barbie, might seem like a figment of Photoshop imagination, but, when GQ's Michael Idov traveled to Ukraine to interview her, he found out Lukyanova is all too real.
Lukyanova first made headlines in 2012 for her living doll appearance, with large breasts, waist-length blond hair and wide eyes. She calls herself Amatue in her YouTube videos, which focus on transcendental thought and self-help.
Idov met Lukyanova in Odessa, where she consumed nothing but carrot juice with chutney (she's expressed a desire to be a breatharian, meaning she would not eat or drink and would attempt to subsist on air and light).

The Young Turks (Winner - Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.
We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.
The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don't patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
