[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Mina[/lastfm]j, who famously calls fans ‘Barbz’ has inked a deal with Mattel to create her very own Barbie. But she isn’t the only pop star getting her likeness molded in hard plastic; reports show [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry [/lastfm]will also receive her very own Barbie doll as well.
The two pop stars are lucky enough to forever be immortalized by the most iconic doll to ever exist, Barbie. And the very best part is that they are being made to benefit charities.
[photogallerylink id=133791 align=left]This Wednesday the dolls will be available for auction on CharityBuzz.com to be displayed during Divine Design‘s five-day event and gala at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. The bids start at $1,000 and will be received up until December 19th. All the proceeds will go to Project Angel Food which is an organization that provides for food for men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS.
Katy goes back to blue and her iconic cupcake dress for her Barbie, or should I say Katy doll. And Nicki dons her staple pink-do in a pink gown that brings back Moments 4 Life.
When asked about her new statue the Pink Friday rapper shared her award and the credit for it with her adoring fans, I mean Barbz, “It shows that my Barbz are special, and everyone loves them as much as I love them, so I want to thank them most importantly,” she said.
Don’t expect to see these on a shelf near you anytime soon, but if you have the money to give, Project Angel Food is a worthy cause. So bid away, AMPers!
No word yet if this means a long term relationship between Mattel and the ladies of pop, but wouldn’t that just be awesome?
