Barbie Controversies and Obsessions

In many Asian countries, Asian women are obsessed with Hello Kitty, dressing themselves in Hello Kitty attire, decorating their apartments in Hello Kitty themes and driving cars in Hello Kitty colors accessorized with Hello Kitty items. In America, the Barbie obsession overrides the Hello Kitty obsession, even though emo girls have adopted Hello Kitty as one of their emo themes. In America, when Barbie girls go further than just looking like Barbie Dolls, it’s obvious, they’ve become completely Barbie obsessed.

What does the Barbie obsession entail? This is not the Barbie collector obsession which The Barbie Blog will explore in a future article. This obsession is centered on looking like a Barbie and having everything Barbie. Apartments or homes decorated like Barbie Dream Houses, overuse of the color pink in decorating color schemes and, yes, driving Barbie cars in smaller sizes (VW Beetles, Mini-Coopers, Fiat 500s, soft top Jeeps, as examples) in white or pastel colors, especially pink.

Barbie Obsession

These girls are living the “Barbie Girl” song by Aqua:

“I’m a barbie girl, in the barbie world
Life in plastic, it’s fantastic!
you can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation
Come on Barbie, let’s go party!

I’m a blond bimbo girl, in the fantasy world
Dress me up, make it tight, I’m your dolly
You’re my doll, rock’n’roll, feel the glamour in pink…”

Barbie obsessed women live in a fantasy world where they are a blond Barbie bimbo, “life is (their) creation”, and this life is preferable to living in reality which without their Barbie obsession, would most likely be harsh, bleak and unbearable. Being a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world, keeps them in a perpetual fantasy which can be a precipitous situation. Anything that falls short of their perfect fantasy: a relationship, a job, etc., is abandoned as their Barbie self drives them to seek out the fantasies that fit their Barbie dream world.
