Lady Gaga: The Barbie Slayer

At a show in Ireland over the weekend, Lady Gaga killed a Barbie. She did it Ozzy Osbourne-style, by sticking it in her mouth and beheading it … and then rubbing it on her leather, studded crotch. Man, we wish we were there to see the execution ourselves! When my Barbies got destroyed as a… More »


Ken Gets A Reality Show. Whitney Port Hosts?

“The City” is dunzo, but Whitney Port is moving onto bigger and better things. You know, like hosting an online reality series about … wait for it … Barbie’s hunkahunka burnin’ love, Ken. The eight-episode series on Hulu.com will be called “Genuine Ken: The Search for the Great American Boyfriend” and features eight guys competing… More »


Barbie’s First-Ever TV Commercial

Long before she was a TV news anchor in a pink miniskirt, Barbie was just a “girl” with a “purse and hats and gloves galore” in this 1959 commercial. It’s apparently the first Barbie ad to ever appear on television. The times — and Barbie — sure have changed, huh? [YouTube] … More »


TV Reporter Barbie Gets The Story In Pink

Oh, dear. The latest doll to emerge from the Barbie I Can Be … line is the News Anchor Doll, and we’re going to bet her pinker-than-pink ensemble is going to rankle some feminist ire. Apparently, if you’re a girl, and you want to be a TV journalist, you must wear pink. Ideally, a pink… More »


Could Mattel’s Japanese Barbie And Ken Be Any More Stereotypical?

A geisha girl and a samurai warrior: these are the stereotypes Mattel used for Japanese Ken and Barbie dolls. Barbie is dressed as a geisha with lotus blossoms in her hair, a gold fan, and some gladiator heels which are badass-looking, but I’m thinking not particularly Japanese. Ken is dressed as a bare-chested samurai warrior… More »


Rachel Zoe And Barbie Collide, The World Goes Bananas!

Barbie makes an appearance on tonight’s episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project.” Mattel created a Barbie in Rachel’s likeness (left), and she, in turn, styled Barbie for a red carpet appearance (right). Mattel got Rachel completely right — from her oversized sunnies down to her extra flared-leg jeans. But I’m not too impressed with styled-by-Rachel-Zoe… More »


Ick: Barbie Feet

We agree with our girls at The Gloss that this image is likely Photoshopped, but it still makes us want to vom in the Dream House toilet. [The Gloss] … More »


Nekkid Barbie Calendar Makes Us Feel Pervy

Barbie Video Girl + Scavenger Hunt = Adult Summer Play

Barbie Video Girl is the latest addition to the Barbie family, but she’s not some doll that fancies herself a music video model, camera person, or video editor. No, this doll is much cooler than that. Barbie Video Girl is actually a video camera that can record your summer adventures. There’s a tiny… More »


Move Over, Barbie: Ken Doll Models For Esquire

Barbie had a million jobs, but did we ever really know what Ken did? With that head of hair, of course he’s a model. This month, Ken is tricked out in teeny, tiny men’s fall fashions for Esquire UK. We pity the assistant who tailored that miniature Gucci duffle bag! [Esquire UK] … More »


Is “Toy Story 3″ Sexist?

Toy Story 3” has been receiving nothing but praise. It’s topped the box office for two weeks in a row and has pulled in $226 million so far. Not to mention that critics are lauding it as the saving grace in a horribly blah summer movie season. But Ms. magazine is not too happy about… More »


An Obese Barbie?

If Barbie keeps it up, she’s not going to fit into her dream house anymore. [BuzzFeed] … More »


Statue Of Liberty Barbie Arrives On Ellis Island

This is the 30th anniversary of the Barbie Dolls of the World Collection, and Mattel chose to celebrate this milestone with a special exhibit on Ellis Island, a fitting place since that is where millions of immigrants first landed in the U.S. The dolls in the collection represent 40 nations across seven continents. I was… More »


Introducing Wonder Bread Barbie

Little girls everywhere, it’s finally arrived — Wonderbread Barbie! It’ll be hard to control yourselves, but don’t freak out, OK?! Oh. Wait. No one’s freaking out? Probably because Wonder Bread Barbie clothes actually weren’t terribly high on your list of must-see items. That didn’t stop Catherine McEver from fashioning a whole pint-sized wardrobe out of… More »


And The Prize Goes To … The Best Positive Barbie Story

Last week, we asked you to tell us how Barbie positively affected your dreams and goals. And despite what some people claim, those of you who really loved Barbie didn’t turn out to be vapid, plastic surgery-obsessed bimbos. But only one person could win the limited edition Anemone Barbie by Christian Louboutin. And the winner… More »


Win This! Limited-Edition Anemone Barbie By Christian Louboutin

Finding a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes for less than $200 rarely happens outside of La La Land. But fashionistas around the world can stop dreaming now that Mattel has released its third Barbie doll designed by Louboutin. Anemone Barbie is red carpet-ready in a lime green and lavender gown and sparkly bracelet. And, of… More »


Ken’s Dream House And Inferiority Complex

I’ve always had questions about the Ken doll. What’s his relationship with Barbie anyway? Does he like men or women? What’s up with the ascot? Where did he get all the money for his rad car? Well, this video promo for “Toy Story 3″ doesn’t answer any of those questions, but it certainly makes… More »


Jon Hamm Plays With Himself On “Ellen”

Oh, get your minds out of the gutter! It was a Don Draper Barbie Doll Jon Hamm played with when he stopped by “Ellen” this week. And it wasn’t just any ol’ Don Draper Barbie Doll either; this one was wearing an Ellen thong under his pants. But who can think about dolls —… More »


In A Barbie World … Fantastic?

Looks like this Barbie-themed hotel room thing is becoming quite a trend. First the Palms in Las Vegas went Mattel-mad with a set of suites, now the super-swank Plaza Athénée in Paris has a special room decked out Barbie-style … for the sweet price of 1,600 Euros a night. Guaranteed nightmares? [BlackbookMag.com] … More »
