If you aren't familiar with the story of Sahar Tabar, a teenager from Iran who has allegedly undergone 50 surgical operations in an attempt to imitate her idol, Angelina Jolie, then it is safe to assume that you've been living under a rock for the past week.
Firstly, in the modern age of entertainment and social media, it's not uncommon for many people to imitate and attempt to replicate their favorite celebrities. And who wouldn't want to look like Jolie? Just take a moment to be floored by her beauty:
But it's safe to say that Tabar's cosmetically enhanced appearance has divided opinions around the world.
There were those who were repulsed by the warped face of the 19-year-old, and those who didn't see any harm in the teen indulging in whatever surgeries she fancied.
In light of all the discussion surrounding her personal choices, Tabar has finally spoken out.
Addressing her 450,000 followers on her Instagram account, which she has since made private, Tabar declared that she wasn't happy with the media scrutiny of her appearance, appearing to suggest that her extreme look isn't all that it appears to be.
The teen, who seems perplexed by the attention she has received, is yet to make it clear if her peculiar features are the result of surgery or prosthetic makeup after it was suggested that her dramatic look was crafted with the help of cosmetics rather than a scalpel.
However, she firmly stated that she is not interested in the media attention that her quirky appearance has garnered her.
