'Barbies'

So I've read certain reviews on this song that have irritated me to say the least.

Things such as "a 38 year old woman talking about wanting to go back to playing with Barbies in her room"... Oh, I can't even remember the whole sentence.. and then somewhere else something about her writing about "playing with Barbies in her room" and basically saying that that doesn't fit her 'tomboy' image. Ugh.

What people don't seem to understand about the song Barbies (and please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong as I value ALL of your opinions) is that she is not talking about "wanting to go back to playing with Barbies in her room".

She is talking about wanting to go back to that TIME in her life when she had no worries, no responsibilities and - being YOUNG and CARE-FREE again. And many other things but I don't want to make this a lengthy post...

So I would love to hear anyone else's opinion regarding this song and its interpretation please?

Yeah, you're right. Some people are just stupid. Leave them be. Also, she's talking about the song in the Apple documentary.

of course, you're totally right, and anyone who cannot interpret this is either dumb or just malicious. as if P!nk from all people literally wanted to go and play with Barbies lmao they just want to be mean snobs and pick at everything.

I totally agree with you.

So silly and the person clearly has a hearing problem, because that's not what she sings.

Well actually, I DON'T "review music for a living". I have a life. And a job. Etc. So don't come on the thread and say something non 'Barbies' related, just to try and be disrespectful. The person I was many years ago would have just been disrespectful back but instead I'm going to take the high road and say this:

If YOU need it EXPLAINED to YOU that YOU posting comments JUST to be DISRESPECTFUL to someone whom you have NEVER MET for no reason other than you "felt like like it" - is WRONG, when the person DID NOT come at you in the SAME way..? ..then yea.. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU TOO MY DEAR. 😴👋

Precisely! It just annoys me so much how underrated she is, how SO many people even to this DAY don't actually realise how talented P!nk truly is. As an artist, performer and a songwriter.

What they were trying to say is, if I review music for a living , and that this has to be EXPLAINED to me i.e. Indicating that I was not capable of working it out by myself (which obviously I have done which is why they made this COMMENT) and that I need it EXPLAINED to me?... then BEST OF LUCK.

Lol.

I'm not stupid. I know 'shade' as these youngsters call it when I see it.. 🙄
