Teen Spends $1500 A Month To Become Barbie | HOOKED ON THE LOOK

AN EIGHTEEN-year-old 'human doll' spends $1,500 each month to realise her dream of being the ultimate real-life Barbie. At the age of 16, Gabriela Jirackova, from Prague, Czech Republic, started amping up her normal beauty regime with long blonde hair extensions, massive eyelashes, permanent make-up and lip fillers. The teen, who owns 300 Barbie dolls, recently underwent her first surgical procedure, at a cost of $4,500, to take her natural C cup size breasts to a G cup. And Gabriela already has plans for more cosmetic work, including butt implants, rib removals and even bigger breast implants to help her perfect her ‘living doll’ look.

Sniffing, coughing and touching her nose, Emilly has Tourette’s syndrome. The 21-year-old, from Wickford, Essex, has suffered from Tourette’s syndrome since she was a little girl. Emilly was diagnosed with Tourette’s when she was just four-years-old and, as a young teenager, her tics were so extreme she suffered fits and was even hospitalised. Bullied because of her tics, Emilly was a shy and unconfident child but singing and performing gave her an outlet to express herself.
