Wish you could have just a little bit of Janet Jackson’s fierceness? Well now you can. Toy maker, Mattel, has created a one-of-a-kind Janet Jackson Barbie doll, called “Divinely Janet,” to help benefit Project Angel Food, a charity that works with those living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
You know they had to go all out for Janet’s Barbie doll. She’s not rocking the standard jumper and super long ponytail. Ms. Jackson’s (if you’re nasty!) doll is decked out in a replica of the ultra-glam gown she wore on this year’s American Idol, and captures Janet’s fly new short haircut and beautiful facial features.
Mattel Designer, Jackeline Gonzalez, reproduced a miniature black gown, and even included the body-hugging cat-suit underneath that Janet revealed during her second performance. Clearly, this isn’t the Barbie we’re used to. The doll’s gown is studded with bling and features hand-placed Swarovski crystals. Even the tiny microphone mini-Janet is holding is studded in crystals!
Want to take home this little gem? Well, it’s going to cost you. The current bid for this one-of-a-kind doll stands at $1,050. You have nine days to scrape those pennies together. And remember . . . it’s for a good cause!
