Barbie looks — and brain?

Under fire for the staggering number of cosmetic procedures she’srecently undergone, Heidi Montag now says she isn’t addicted to plasticsurgery — she just wants to be as beautiful as she can be, inside andout

Under fire for the staggering number of cosmetic procedures she’s recently undergone, Heidi Montag now says she isn’t addicted to plastic surgery — she just wants to be as beautiful as she can be, inside and out, people.com reports.

Asked on Tuesday’s Good Morning America for a response to those who say she is addicted, Montag, 23, replied, “I would say that none of those people know me at all, and that’s just a judgment. I’m not addicted. If I were addicted, I would have had 10 plastic surgeries.”

What she had, actually, was 10 procedures on the same day, back in November. This followed a previous surgery three years ago. In a recent interview with People, Montag admitted she was “beyond obsessed” with having work done.

Asked why she would want to look like a Barbie doll, Montag replied, “I think I look like myself. I think I just look like a different, improved version of myself.”

Many observers are upset with the message that’s sent to young girls when an already attractive 23-year-old chooses to undergo so many alterations. But Montag says it’s her life — and in her line of work, alterations can be necessary.

“I’m in a different industry,” she said, “and I have to do things that are going to make me happy at the end of the day.”
