Channel 4 in London introduces Viktoria Modesta, the world’s first amputee pop star, who showcases a variety of faaaaaaaabulous prosthetic legs in her new video “Prototype.” There’s a light-up leg (which hilariously attracts moths), a bedazzled leg for evening looks, and stabby graphite one that scrapes along the ice in a rather menacing dance she does at the end. Definitely stick around to check that out. It’s at the 5:00 mark. The song is just so-so, and the rest of her look belongs in the Party City “Lady Gaga” Halloween collection, but I actually find the idea of her pretty exciting.
Via Bored Panda:
The singer was born with a dislocated hip and leg, which greatly affected her social life at school. Enduring 15 ineffective surgeries back in Latvia, she moved to London, hoping for a better treatment. After even more failed procedures she finally convinced her doctors to amputate her leg, which eventually freed her of her complexes and boosted her self-confidence.
Now Viktoria is proud of what she went through, encouraging everyone to always follow their dreams, no matter the obstacles.
