Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj as Barbie Dolls

Mattel has given Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj the plastic treatment. No, not plastic surgery! They have turned these two ladies into Barbie dolls! It’s like every girls dream to be a Barbie and who better to have this honor than these two pink-loving pop princesses?

Katy’s look-alike doll is inspired by her scrumptious cupcake dress worn during her California Dreams World Tour. The doll’s outfit features 70 hand-painted cupcakes, a glittered bodice and fishnet stocking with Swarovski crystals.

"I'm a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world!”  Katy Tweeted. 

Nicki Minaj, who actually calls her fans Barbies, must love her look-alike doll that wears a dazzling replica of the dress she wore for her Pink Friday album cover. Wispy layers of silky charmeuse and shimmering tulle make this dress extra glamorous, and of course you can’t forget her fave accessory – the Barbie necklace.

“It’s just a one of a kind, limited edition for charity, and so I never thought Mattel would even pay attention to me, for me, this is a very major moment because it just shows that you can come from nothing and still be a force in the main world, a business woman, and hopefully a mogul one day.” Minaj told Billboard of this honor.

These fabulous  Barbie dolls will be unveiled at the Divine Design Gala in Los Angeles and will be auctioned off on charitybuzz with proceeds benefiting Project Angel Food, a charity who’s  mission it is to nourish the body and spirit of men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses.  Unfortunately you won’t be able to run off and buy these dolls for your daughters this Christmas because they are both one-of-a-kind dolls with an estimated value of a whopping $15 000 each! Wow! If you do however have that kind of money to spend, you can bid on the Katy Perry Barbie doll here, and the Nicki Minaj doll here. At least all that money will be going to a great cause!
