"I love the contrast of my bright blonde hair and my dark, crispy brown skin. 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?' At first, my fans were irritated saying 'why did you do this?!' but that is because they have never seen a white girl change her skin to African dark before. But now, they have got used to it, they are excited like me. They say, 'oh, I like your style! Go darker! Go darker!'"
"Yes, I have the skin of an African girl. But I am not pretending to be a black girl. I'm going to create a unique and exotic Barbie with dark tan, bright blonde hair and exaggerated curves. I like this look," she said.
Martina's boyfriend Michael is supportive of her and has had tanning injections himself.
"I didn't want to go quite as dark as Martina but I support her and like her new look very much. It is a great feeling for me to have Martina by my side. I am the boyfriend of the woman with the largest breasts in Europe!"
Below is a video of Martina modelling her new look.
