VIDEO: Ryan Gosling Sings The Woes of Ken

‘Cause I’m just Ken. Anywhere else I’d be a 10'

Move over, Barbie, because Ken has something to say!

The upcoming live-action “Barbie” movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling is pulling out all the stops, and their latest marketing ploy is a hilarious and surprisingly catchy song.

Gone are the days of silent plastic smiles. This Ken, played by the ever-charming Ryan Gosling, belts out a tune titled “Just Ken” that details his struggles with being Barbie’s eternal sidekick.

“I have feelings that I can’t explain / Driving me insane / All my life been so polite / ‘Cause I’m just Ken / Anywhere else I’d be a 10 / Is it my destiny to live and die a life of blond fragility?” Gosling sings.

The song, written by Oscar-winner Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt, is a lighthearted look at the pressure of living in the shadow of a pink powerhouse. Gosling croons about feeling like a “10” anywhere else, but forever “number two” next to Barbie. He even questions his fate, wondering if he’s destined for a life of “blond fragility.”

But fear not, Ken fans! This isn’t just a ballad of woe.

The song hints at a deeper journey for Ken, with a touch of self-discovery along the way. Will he finally break free from Barbie’s grip? We’ll have to wait and see!

One thing’s for sure, with a soundtrack boasting Grammy-winner Billie Eilish alongside original songs from Lizzo, Charli XCX, and Dua Lipa, the “Barbie” movie promises to be a musical extravaganza. So, dust off your rollerblades, put on your neon pink, and get ready to sing along to Ken’s anthem of self-expression!
