Martina Big, formerly Martina Adam, is a German woman who idolized Barbie and Pamela Anderson. This photo is of her in her youth. Big decided that she wanted to look as much like her role models as possible, and began a life dedicated to tanning and plastic surgery.
This photo is also of Martina Big, but, something seems different. I can't figure out what it is though. Hmmm. She's still blonde. She's still a woman. Oh! In this photo, she's holding a gun. That's the difference.
Martina Big underwent several surgeries to resemble her role models, including liposuction, a nose job, and breast implants. Could you tell she had breast implants? Try squinting really hard. Big's boobs are now a size 32S, which in my opinion is the perfect size because they're not too small, but they're not too big either.
Martina Big spent £50,000 on surgery to achieve her Barbie-esq features, and claims that her breasts are "Europe's biggest." However, this was before her latest cosmetic alteration, which was by far the most drastic.
Gotta love that view of the Hollywood sign. That's what I notice about this photo. And yes, this picture is of Martina Big. But, again, something seems different this time. Hmm. Hmmm. Hmmmm... Oh wait, she's black now.
Okay, so Martina Big transformed herself into a black woman. That is, um... problematic? I guess that's the word I'll use. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Martina Big didn't have any black friends before deciding to get this procedure. In fact, maybe that's why she got the surgery!
Big owns a 50-tube tanning bed that clearly gets the job done. But to achieve the effect she wanted, Big also received chemical tanning injections in her stomach. The injections, which boost melanin, fade after several months, and Big is committed to getting more whenever her skin starts to lighten.
"It's better to be black, the feeling inside is just better," said Big, adding, "I am now the proud owner of black skin." She said this on "The Maury Show" while wearing a gold pendant that said "Black Girls Rock." Black girls do rock, Martina, but JEEZ. Comon' dude. You can't just... *sigh.*
Martina Big doesn't identify as a white woman who has dark skin. She identifies as black. "I am black. That is my race," she said, adding, "80 percent. I have a lot to learn." Big even went to the government and changed her official ethnicity.
Yes, yes it is. But Big doesn't want to offend people, saying, "No, I don't want to. I know some feel attacked but it's not my intention. I do it for myself, and only talk to people who want to talk with me about this." Martina Big also said, "I can't wait to go to Africa because I hear the food is tasty." I have nothing to add.
Martina Big began having plastic surgery in 2012 after her boyfriend encouraged her to try modeling. Big also claims that she wants to look like Pamela Anderson, but says the Baywatch star isn't curvy enough. How do you get more curvy than Pamela Anderson? Do you just look like a sphere?
Martina Big has a husband named Michael, and, well, you might notice something similar about him. Michael had the same procedure as his wife, and he looks the part. When asked if he also identifies as black, Michael replied, "I'm a medium."
"I have the biggest boobs in Europe, but I need my butt to match my boobs," says Big. Well, I wish you the best of luck, Martina Big. You do you. Or, maybe you shouldn't do you, because I'm not sure what you did is okay. I don't know. This world makes my head hurt.
