Barbie’s hot pink flip phone is coming to the real world this summer

If you were wondering when brands will finally stop trying to cash in on the Barbie craze, the answer is, somehow, not yet. HMD (or Human Mobile Devices), which has been making Nokia phones for the past few years, announced for MWC that it’s partnered with Mattel to release an official Barbie Flip Phone this summer. It’ll be pink, obviously, with a dash of “sparkle.”Aesthetically, it sounds a lot like the original hot pink Motorola Razr of the aughts. But while that phone eventually got rebooted as a smartphone for the…

Barbie’s Margot Robbie And Ryan Gosling Open Up About Him Possibly Performing ‘I’m Just Ken’ At The Oscars

I think that we’re all in agreement that the song “I’m Just Ken” must be performed at this year’s Academy Awards.

However, it’s still up in the air if he’ll do it. Now, both the Ken actor and Barbie herself, Margot Robbie, have weighed in on the topic, and it’s making me feel optimistic. The last time Gosling was asked about performing “I’m Just Ken” at the…

2023 was a big year for Margot Robbie… you know, because of her appearance in Asteroid City and for producing Saltburn. I’m kidding, while those movies certainly received a decent amount of attention, they paled in comparison to Barbie, which was met with critical acclaim, became 2023’s highest-grossing movie and has now earned eight nominations at the 96th Academy Awards (although many felt Robbie was snubbed from the Best Actress category). Fresh off this latest round of accolades, word’s come in that Robbie will star…
