Elton John is getting his personal Elton John Barbie doll. And while the doll will not look like Rocket Man, it will probably be styled in its likeness.
The limited-edition Barbie doll, which was launched on Mattel’s web site on Thursday, may feature a high and gaudy denim with the singer’s initials.
Her multi-colored “Elton” bomber jacket has sleeves and iridescent stripes on its hem. Even she will have rainbow-patterned platform boots, a purple bowler hat and Elton’s signature bright pink sun shades.
The description of the doll on the Mattel web site reads, “Elton John Barbie Doll is a daring collaboration that recognizes two cultural icons and honors the extraordinary art and honor of an extraordinary artist.”
So, what is the event?
The doll, which retails for $ 50, was launched at Dodgers Stadium in October 1975 to mark the 45th anniversary of the singer’s record-breaking two-day efficiency.
At the time, 100,000 viewers made it the most important live performance ever for a solo artist.
Elton John informed Rolling Stone, “Barbie is an icon in her personal work, so it is a real honor to pay tribute to my work and personal type.’ ‘I hope she makes followers everywhere fearlessly to pursue her very own desires and limitless possibilities.’
The Elton John Barbie Doll can be purchased on the Mattel web site or at Walmart’s on-line retailer
