Barbie got a major makeover, she now comes in different body types & skin colors

barbie1

Here is this week’s Time Magazine cover: THE NEW BARBIE. Or at least your choice of what kind of Barbie doll best represents your dreams and journeys. Yes, after decades of size-0, thin-thighed, blonde Barbies, Mattel has finally changed their doll in some fundamental ways. The new Barbie will be offered in seven different colors/races, with many different hair colors and three new body types: petite, tall and curvy.

Mattel will still be selling OG Barbie, but now kids will have more options. You can choose dark-skinned and petite Barbie, or tall and brown-skinned Barbie or curvy, white and brunette Barbie. All in all, there are 33 different dolls which will come out in stages. I’ll call them Bootilicious Barbie, Realistic Thighs Barbie, Nerd Barbie, Blue-Haired Hipster Barbie, Jennifer Lawrence Barbie and Ariana-Grande-Proportioned Barbie. The different body types are getting the most attention, but I genuinely appreciate the fact that they’re making Barbies with different skin tones and the dolls still get to be called BARBIE. They’re not going to call the different Barbies different names, like one called Destiny or one called Kim or whatever. All Barbies, in all sizes, in all colors.

The Time Magazine piece about Mattel’s Barbie Revolution is pretty interesting – go here to read. They’re not even really pretending that this change came from completely pure, representative intentions. You see, Mattel has seen steadily declining sales of Barbies, but from 2012-2014, sales fell off a cliff and Lego became the biggest toy company in the world, dethroning Mattel. Lego prioritized the “Lego Friends” line, which teaches girls to build and probably worked really well for parents who want to encourage their daughters to pursue STEM fields. Meanwhile, Barbie was still the same-old, same-old and that was a big problem. So the head of the Barbie brand, Evelyn Mazzocco, decided to rebrand Barbie for millennial moms. You can read about the strategy in Time Magazine here.

So, is this too little, too late? I personally think that Barbie has lasted so long because of fashion, and as long as they keep making great clothes for all Barbie sizes, I imagine Barbie will last for another 50 years. I’ve read the treatises about why Barbie isn’t feminist or why she’s blah blah blah, but for me, it was about the fashion and it was about having a womanly-proportioned doll to dress up.

Do I think Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood/Mean Girl squad is petty and ridiculous? Of course. But… I would still love to know what really goes down in that group. Like, I’m fascinated by the group dynamics. I’m sure that Tay-Tay is the alpha, of course, just as I’m sure that Selena Gomez is the drama queen still obsessing over her loser ex-boyfriend (Biebz). Karlie is The Cool Girl, right? She’s centered, she doesn’t need anyone’s approval and even Swifty is sort of in awe of Karlie, but Karlie isn’t looking to dethrone Swifty as the alpha. Anyway, Radar has a gossipy piece about what went down with Taylor and her squad after the VMAs. First, Taylor took her girls out to a Republic Records party, then they all went to Taylor’s house. I want to believe all of the following is true:

Taylor Swift and her pals first attended a Republic Records party at the swanky West Hollywood restaurant Ysabel, which featured an A-list guest list of attendees including Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande. Swift paid the huge tab for her pals’ hair, makeup, stylists and transportation, our eyewitness said.

Gomez had a boozy evening — “She started to get pretty f***ed up,” our eyewitness said — downing four vodka sodas at Ysabel, where she “was flirting big time with Nick Jonas.”

RadarOnline.com’s eyewitness said that Grande and her brother Frankie could not get close to Swift, who “made it clear to security not to let them near…At first, I thought it was just Frankie, but it was crystal clear [Swift] wanted nothing to do with either of them,” our eyewitness said, noting that Grande “gave up” trying to approach “after a few minutes.”

Empire beauty Serayah McNeil tested Swift’s patience as she spent too much time taking selfies and Snapchats at the affair, leading Swift to ask her to put the phone away. It “was fine at first,” our source said, but eventually Swift got “super-annoyed” with her pal’s hijinks.

At a get-together at Swift’s house afterwards, according to our eyewitness, everyone changed into sweats and Swift Facetimed her beau Calvin Harris for a romantic exchange with many “I love you’s” going both ways. The kickback was well-catered with sushi, vodka and fireball shots, which Swift’s inner circle all indulged in, according to our eyewitness. Swift sipped on Ketel One. There, Cyrus’ racy act at the VMAs was the talk of the bash, with Gomez extremely critical of her one-time pal. Gomez said, according to our eyewitness, “I can’t believe we used to be friends … I should’ve reached out that night she cut her hair and posted the pic on Twitter.”

Swift and Gomez thought that Cyrus’ VMAs antics — from smoking marijuana to flashing her nipple — were obnoxious and annoying, our eyewitness said. Swift and Gomez didn’t throw too much artistic respect toward Cyrus, the eyewitness said, as they were “in stitches, doubled over from laughing” after hearing the first song off Miley’s surprise album Dead Petz.

Ariana Grande’s Apology’ for Hating Donuts & America

Ariana Grande’s Apology’ for Hating Donuts & America

A few days ago, Ariana Grande entered a donut shop and the singer apparently licked and spit on donuts before saying “What the f—k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America! That’s disgusting.” You can check the video below:

Soon after the incident, Ariana issued an apology, where she did not actually apologize for licking the donuts, but instead talked about the American obesity problem:

I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words. As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole. The fact that the United States has one of the highest child obesity rate in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies. We need to demand more from our food industry. However I should have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better. As for why I cannot be at the MLB show, I have had emergency oral surgery and due to recovery I cannot attend the show. I hope to make it up to all those fans soon. That being said let me once again apologize if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words.
