Elton John is getting his own one of a kind Barbie doll. And keeping in mind that the doll won’t seem as though the Rocket Man, it will be styled in his similarity.
The limited-edition Barbie doll, which was delivered on Mattel’s site on Thursday, will have a glittery top and erupted denim complete with the artist’s initials.
Her multi-hued “Elton” bomber coat has stars on its sleeves and rainbow stripes on its fix. She will likewise have rainbow-patterned stage boots, a purple bowler cap and Elton’s signature sparkly pink sunglasses.
“The Elton John Barbie doll is a bold collaboration that personifies two cultural icons and honors the extraordinary artistry and musicianship of a stellar performer,” the doll’s depiction on the Mattel site peruses.
So, what’s the event?
The doll, which retails for $50, was delivered to mark the 45th anniversary of the artist’s record-breaking two-day performance at the Dodgers Stadium in October 1975.
At that point, the 100,000 participants made it the biggest show ever for a single artist.
“Barbie is an icon in her own right, so having her pay tribute to my work and personal style is a real honor,” Elton John told Rolling Stone. “I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential.”
The Elton John Barbie doll can be purchased on the Mattel site or on Walmart’s online store.
