‘Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’

Surrounded by marble decor and leather furniture I sit and wait patiently in the Four Seasons hotel, Los Angles. I sip ice cold Margaritas whilst being told that Blythe and Barbie are running late. Here I was moments away from an exclusive interview with Hollywoods Creme da La Creme aka Barbie and Blythe to discuss the size zero bedate. Another thirty minutes later they arrive entourage in tow, I take one last sip on my Margarita before nervously shaking hands with the queens of Fashion. ‘Barbie Blythe, nice to meet you’ The dolls gave me a forced smile and a somewhat awkward handshake, aprehensive perhaps at my forth-coming questions. ‘Blythe you’ve been in the news a lot lately regarding your comments on eating and how to saty thin... Do you still stand by what you said? ‘Oh absolutely! I have never been ashamed of my comments, if people want to listen to my views and them push them to the edge, distort them and so on that that’s their choice not mine! ‘And for those that missed your comments?’ ‘I said nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’ Barbie sniggers and injects ‘You see Sophie, were into the business of looking good and looking good means we have to starve ourselves, go the gym and take diet pills. There’s nothing wrong with our eating habits, I have an excellent diet of one lettuce leaf per day and a swigg of mineral water. What’s wrong with that? How can it be unhealthy?!‘ Barbie looks to Blythe for genuine approval. ‘ ‘Of course the other reason why we eat virually nothing is the men, we have to stay in shape for all the gorgeous muscely men on Venice Beach!’ Barbie laughs ‘ Speak for your self I belong to Ken!’ The two of them cackle with laughter, I sit waiting for them to compose themselves wondering if they realise how serious

this all is. ‘Have you ever contemplated just how influential you both are on todays young, impressionable females? ’ ‘For real!’ Shouts Barbie. ‘Everyday!’ I continue, ‘I mean there are alot of young girls out there who believe that what they see in the media is real, without ever realising the effort that goes into airbrushing the final product. Lots of young girls look to you as idols, don’t you think you should behave more responsibly? ‘Waaagh... Bla bla bla. I’m sick of hearing all this hyper-sensitive shit. We don’t care! We really don’t! If I wanna go out and have a good time and I just so happen to get papped looking anorexic that’s my buisness, we live in a free world right!’ ‘Perhaps, but do you think about what consequence this is having on young volunerable people... Take Sarah Jane Moore for instance, the young16 year old girl who starved herself to death in the name of vanity. One has to ask whether it’s because of media pressure? The dolls sit there for a moment thinking in silence, perhaps they’re not all that vacuous after all, Blythe renowed for her huge head, big eyes and skinny body turns and looks at me and in a moment of light reflection says ‘Hmm, maybe you have got a point, maybe once I meet the man of my dreams, I will settle down get married and have children. Maybe then we might act more responsibly, eat a few cakes and put on a bit of weight. It happens doesn’t it? But until that time we’re just two normal dolls having fun and enjoying our youth whilst we still can!’ ‘There’s nothing wrong with having fun?!’ Blythe reiterates. ‘No I agree dolls. But there’s also nothing wrong with taking a mature look at the way things are and acknowledging how one thing can influence another; have a negative effect on something like the trend for waffer thin models in todays’ society and the increase in eating disorders. Maybe one day young girls will see the light and stop suffering in silence. 12
