21 year-old-girl Xiaoqing just ended a 1 year relationship with her boyfriend not long ago. The reason was her boyfriend’s strange obsession over American movie star Jessica Alba. She could not take the fact he always dressed her up as Jessica Alba. After the break up, Xiaoqing was in so much pain that she decided to have cosmetic surgery to look like Jessica Alba to win her boyfriend back.
Because of her tight budget, Xiaoqing did not have enough money to have the make-over, so she posted a post online(on Tianya) “Cash reward offer, who can give me the make-over to have the most beautiful face in the world.” She also posted her picture, and hoped using the power of Internet to attract more attentions, and to attract cosmetic surgeons’ attentions. On the Internet, some people gave her advice, some people supported her, some people insulted her, some people questioned her, Xiaoqing’s life has changed.

Translation of what she said in the video:
The first time when he saw me he thought I looked like Jessica Alba. Because I use to have long hair except for the color the hair style looked very much like Jessica Alba’s. He said you would look a lot better if you put makeup on. During that time I put on makeup everyday. He told me to sleep with makeup on at night, so I did, and he treated me very well.
He is from Hunan, a designer, born in 1981, 7 years older than me. Maybe I have a little bit of Electra complex. I am from Wuhan Hubei, born in 1988, working as customer service at an Internet company. I got to know my ex-boyfriend in a classmate gathering. The first time when I saw him, he was very gentle. After we were together for two month, we lived together. After I met him, I had no more feelings for anybody else, and would not fall in love with anyone else anymore. Now I think about it, the only thing I can think of is how good he was to me; I don’t remember anything that he was not good to me. Actually he was steady, he took care of me very well, but the only thing was he had an obsession. Any places within his eye sight, if possible, to put up pictures of Jessica Alba, he would.
The reason we broke up is when we went out to see friends. He put on a wig for me and directly asked me to go out. People on the street saw me, all pointed at me and laughed, but he didn’t care. I could not take it anymore. There were many things I was not happy about that I suppressed inside for long time. I stood there and stopped walking. He turned around and looked at me. I was crying. After three and four minutes after, there were more and more people on the street watching. Then he asked me what I wanted to do. I took off the wig and the fake eye lashes and threw them on the ground. I said I don’t want to do anything, I just don’t want to wear a wig to go outside. He said it’s fine if you really don’t want to do it. Then he said you think about it and left. Then I went to his place and moved all my stuff out. He never contacted me. I contacted him. It was the second day after I posted my post. He said he was busy and would contact me later. I just wanted to tell him I posted this post on the Internet, and many people are concerned about me, I wanted to get cosmetic surgery.
After we broke up, I was closed off. I was just in bed and did not want to get off the bed and eat anything nor sleeping. I was just crying. Friends tried to advise me but it was no use. My friends said, if you really can’t deal with it, then go ahead and get the plastic surgery to look like Jessica Alba. Then when you go back to him, he will treat you better. Or else it is no use even if you go back to him. Finally I posted a post on the Internet asking for help. I will have plastic surgery to look like Jessica Alba. Then many people advised me and told me that I am stupid and foolish. But I know they really cared about me. I also thought about it for long time, and also thought about it for my mom. She brought me up by herself, anything I am doing I should ask her for opinions. I am not going to tell her. I will tell my mom, but I will not tell her that I am getting plastic surgery for my boyfriend. I think she is going to get hurt if I did.
My nose, eyes and my chin need to have surgery. This is the preliminarily suggestion by the doctor. Because I don’t have any physical defects, the doctor hoped I would really think it through. I think I am already an adult, should be able to take responsibilities for my actions. I am having the huge hope and making this huge decision. I am not going to think about the problems after the plastic surgery. My hope of love is all depending on this make-over. I am imagining this is going to be a beautiful thing. After the make-over my boyfriend and I can be together and my mom will be ok, everything will be ok.
After I become like Jessica Alba, we will be happy together. I don’t care if he treats me like another person because Jessica is a very far away, but I am right next to him. Maybe after my make-over, and he finds out that I did so much for him, I really love him, he would think I am the one that is worth him to love, not Jessica. Then I think it will all be worth it.
He likes Jessica so much, if I successfully have the cosmetic surgery, I think he will continue to be with me. If he decides to not be with me, I can only give up. I did so much, and did whatever I could and took so much effort, if he is still the same, I will choose to give up.
