Remember the White Woman Who Transformed Herself into a Black Lady? Here's How She Looks Now
The German woman who slowly transformed her physical appearance finally explained what she was trying to achieve with all the procedures she underwent over the years.
Martina Big has spent more than $64,000 on plastic surgeries and other cosmetic enhancements to completely change her appearance.
Big has tried to turn herself into an "exotic barbie" rather than a black person, and her boyfriend hopes she continues to change herself.
Big has undergone breast implant surgery that has given her a whopping 32S size breasts and has made use of both tanning injections and a sunbed to darken her skin to a complexion she likes to describe as "dark, crispy brown."
She had not been expecting her skin to go quite so dark but was very pleased with the result nonetheless, and reportedly wants to go even darker. Big claims to love the shocking contrast of her dark skin and her bottle blonde hair.
"I love seeing the reactions of people. I can see their big eyes when I walk past and their shocked faces, thinking 'how is this possible?'"
But Big insists she is in no way pretending to be a black woman. Instead, she claims to be a unique "exotic Barbie" with her dark skin, light hair, and overly exaggerated curves.
"At first, I wanted to look like Pamela Anderson or Katie Price. But these women are not curvy enough. Now, I am more inspired by Barbie or Jessica Rabbit, but I go my own way and am creating my own extreme look."
Big claimed that her fans were annoyed at her changes at first, but now they have embraced them and keep encouraging her to make more changes.
A fan on Instagram wrote: "Why is it ok when people want to be lighter but not ok if someone wants to look darker and embrace African culture? I think you look amazingly beautiful!" And they aren't the only ones.
Her boyfriend, Michael, claims he wants her to have even more implants, in both her breasts and her buttocks and would love for her to make her skin even darker.
"Martina has this extreme look because she has always followed her heart. She and I, our dreams are the same and from change to change, Martina just becomes even more beautiful."
