A German woman who dreamed of looking like Pamela Anderson claims that she has now changed races, describing her “transition” into becoming a black woman as nearly complete – pending some learning about African-American culture.
According to Martina Big, born Martina Adam, she always admired Barbie dolls for their shapely figures. In order to attain a look that was more to her liking, Big went under the knife for a set of drastic body modifications: breast implants, rhinoplasty, liposuction, lip injections, the whole nine yards.
But once she felt that she had reached her peak level of Barbie-ness, Big decided to take things in a very different direction. She had three injections in her stomach that transformed her white skin into dark skin over the next several months.
“I am now the proud owner of black skin,” she said during an appearance on “The Maury Show” that left host Maury Povich and the audience face-palming in dismay.
“Martina, do you think you’re a black person?” he asked, to which Big answered emphatically, “yes.”
When the audience began to boo and jeer, she clarified: “But 80 percent. I have to learn a lot. I know.”
Although Big apparently did not get the injections in order to become black, she claims that she started to notice her body was transforming and decided to embrace it. She even went “to the government and changed my ethnicity official to ‘black.’”
Her husband, Michael, who was also in the audience, appeared to have darkened his skin nearly as much as Big has. When asked if he also felt black, he replied, “I’m a medium.”
Despite the outrage that she caused on the set of the show, Big insists that she is simply aligning her external appearance with how she feels on the inside.
“I am black. That is my race,” she said.
