Meet the real-life Barbie who makes $1,300 a week popping balloons for men on her webcam
Do you ever think about getting an extreme makeover? Not a new haircut and shiny shoes, but a wholly different, provocative, daring new look?
Most people will fantasise about it at one point or another, but very few actually have the guts to go all the way with it. Jade Lyne, a former contestant on the British TV series "100% Hotter" in 2016, is one of those people. When she first appeared on the show she was praised by the panel of experts for her 'natural' good looks. But now Jade has totally altered her appearance with lip fillers, cosmetic surgery, and fake tan, to transform herself into a 'real-life Barbie.'
Jade has spent her £7,000 ($9,000) inheritance to totally transform her body, and now earns around £1,000 ($1,300) as a fetish model on her own webcam, providing kinky videos to paying followers who send her requests. But it's hard work being a real-life doll; Jade has to apply fake tan every single day, and she takes approximately five hours to do her makeup. However, since she's earning over twice the national average, she doesn't mind so much.
Commenting on her new job in a recent interview, Jade stated:
"I get paid by the minute, so I do have some quiet days, but if you put the time in, it pays well. Obviously, a lot of it is taking off my clothes, but there are also lots of fetishes out there I had no idea about. Men have asked me to pop balloons on webcam, smoke, or show off my feet – this has opened up a whole world of things that people are into ... But lots of other people don’t like it. I’ve been called every name under the sun, but I don’t really care. It’s a job at the end of the day, not a reflection of who I am. When that laptop is on, I’m working, but when it’s off, I’m a normal person just like anybody else."
"I got my boobs done when I was around 19. It wasn’t purely cosmetic, I had lots of problems with my natural chest. It was asymmetric, and my nipples were inverted. It made me incredibly self-conscious. Nobody ever saw my chest. Even with my boyfriend at the time, I’d always keep my bra on and would stuff it with loads of tissue. I went from an A cup to a G. I haven’t had any other surgery yet, but I’d love the full works if I could."
Jade believes that her new look has had a negative impact on her love life: but now she's lucky enough to be with a new boyfriend who doesn't mind her extreme appearance, and she still gets plenty of attention from strangers online. "I’ll get loads of creepy, explicit messages from men on Facebook, she stated, "but I know they’re only doing it because of what I look like. I just ignore them ... I love being OTT. Whatever the weather, I’ll be glammed up in a dress and heels, because that’s what makes me happy."
I guess the thing to take away from all this is that it's important to be yourself no matter what. After all, there's someone for everyone out there.
