15 Singers You Might Not Know Were Immortalized As Barbies

These dolls prove life in plastic is indeed fantastic!

1. Jennifer Lopez

Mattel / Via

Year released: 2013

Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got, this ain’t Barbie, it’s actually Jenny from the block.

Also this is probably the first time they ever had to add a little extra volume to a Barbie doll’s bum.

2. Frank Sinatra

Year released: 2000

Ol’ Blue Eyes comes complete with a martini and alleged mob ties to the Transformers’ Decepticons.

3. Cyndi Lauper

Mattel / Via

Year released: 2010

Cyndi giving Barbie and the Rockers a run for their money.

4. Shakira

Mattel / Via

Year released: 2003

More importantly: Does this doll come with a special hip swivel action?

5. Debbie Harry

Year released: 2010

Outside of Barbie, there are very few people more closely associated with blond hair other than Debbie Harry of Blondie.

6. Nicki Minaj

Mattel / Via

Year released: 2011

This actually makes a lot of sense, because Nicki is basically a living Barbie doll.

7. Barbra Streisand

Mattel / Via

Year released: 2009

FYI: You can only look at this doll from the left side.

8. Faith Hill & Tim McGraw

Year released: 2011

Is it me or did they just slap a goatee on Ken and call it a day? I guess Faith already looked like a Barbie.

9. Diana Ross

Mattel / Via

Year released: 2003

The only doll that can out DIVA Barbie.

10. Brandy

Year released: 1999

How many kids do you think made this doll and Barbie fight over Ken while playing “The Boy Is Mine”?

11. Joan Jett

Year released: 2009

The only badass Barbie that can kick both Ken and G.I. Joe’s butt at the same time.

12. Janet Jackson

Mattel / Via

Year released 2010

Janet (or Miss Jackson if you’re nasty) allowed this doll to be made in her likeness as part of an auction to benefit Project Angel Food.

13. Cher

Year released: 2007

Barbie helped Cher (insert plastic joke here) “turn back time” with her doll.

I am sure this doll comes complete with thong, butt tattoo, and boy toy Ken.

14. Elvis Presley

Year released: 2001

Nice of Mattel to commemorate the later Elvis years. Although shot out televisions sets and gold Mercedes accessories are sold separately.

15. Beyoncé

Year released: 2005

If there is anyone on this list who lives a more fabulous life than Barbie it’s Beyoncé.

But my question: Where is the Jay Z Ken doll?!
