1 of my biggest dreams, having collected Barbies since I was a kid, is to have my own Barbie BUT with my actual body type.. Weight & height
and the retweets flooded in. Ms. Lovato has been very vocal about her body issues and she’d like to see a more “realistic” version of the doll, tweeting such a Barbie doll would be, “one dope 21st birthday” present.
And she didn’t stop there. From Starcasm:
While encouraging her 14.7 million Twitter followers to tweet @BarbieStyle, Demi also suggested Mattel create a Barbie with some cellulite: “After all, around 95% of ALL women have it!!!”
The X Factor judge’s fans were quick to back up Demi.
“I’d buy a @ddlovato Barbie in a heart beat… I’d actually buy like 1,000 and give them to every little girl i see,” wrote one, who Demi retweeted.
Last year, a fan threw a Barbie doll at Demi while she was performing in Brazil. The young star then took a moment to give a very grown-up speech.
“I spent my whole life trying to be this and trying to look like this,” Demi told her fans. “And guess what? I’m not this. And it means the world to me that you guys still love me no matter what.”
I think that’s great, but I don’t want to see a Barbie with cellulite. That’s way too difficult for a toy manufacturer to make without making it seem like Barbie is filled with Gak. You guys remember Gak?
