She’s like a Barbie, then she wants to be a superhero, or coming out of a spaceship and everything’s pink. She makes a certain move that’s ghetto hood mixed with a little robot so its like I’m evolving Nicki Minaj and developing her style. She’s fearless, and I love her.

I definitely had dolls when I was a kid. I don’t remember being very thorough with them and making sure they got fed in my make-believe world. A lot of Barbie haircuts were given, though. I had a Tamagotchi as well, but I think that thing died really quick. They were hard to do!

I’m just a Ragetty Anne in a Barbie Doll World
Shelley Winters
Pulling heads off Barbies, sticking them on the TV antenna and ruining the reception. But thats how witch babies are.
Francesca Lia Block
Both my husband and I wanted a boy. I wasn’t sure what I’d do with a daughter. What if she asked for a Barbie? I would have been like, ‘Honey, we don’t support Barbie because she isn’t an accurate depiction of a woman’s body.’
Holly Marie Combs
Dolls fire our collective imagination, for better and – too often – for worse. From life-size dolls the same height as the little girls who carry them, to dolls whose long hair can ‘grow’ longer, to Barbie and her fashionable sisters, dolls do double duty as child’s play and the focus of adult art and adult fear.
Ellen Datlow
What makes you different, makes you dangerous.

Stephen King
The first design I created was a circular skirt for my Barbie when I was 7.
Karen Walker
Ella was vapid and worthless at least nine-tenths of the time, but when she got really mad, her face became sharp and purposeful. Almost vicious. Like if Barbie were suddenly possessed by Atilla the Hun.
Francine Pascal
I didn’t like Barbie dolls, so I used to have this overactive imagination, and I used to pretend to be all these different things. My weird childhood fetishes seem to have come to life now as an actor.

When I was really young. My sister and I would create different characters with our Barbie dolls – I’d be the crazy diva Barbie and she’d be the homeless Barbie.
Jordana Brewster
