Elton John is a doll ... literally.
Toymaker Mattel has created an Elton Barbie doll that has her sporting a purple bowler hat, while wearing pink-tinted glasses, an Elton-embossed bomber jacket, flared jeans embellished with his initials and platform boots. The jacket and boots also have rainbow stripes in tribute to the LGBTQ community.
Commenting on the honor, Elton says, "Barbie is an icon in her own right, so having her pay tribute to my work and personal style is a real honor. I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential."
While Elton is the first male artist with a Barbie doll, others who have dolls, figurines or bobbleheads include KISS, Ozzy, ZZ Top, Motorhead, Rush,The Police, Beatles and Def Leppard.
