Ryan Gosling sings Barbie’s song “I’m Just Ken” with Slash on guitar

by admin

Ken has spoken. Finally, an exclusive new preview of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie The movie spotlights our leading man – played, of course, by Ryan Gosling – to deliver a dramatic musical number about how hard it is to be No. 2. On the guitar.

“I just don’t know who I am without you,” Ken tearfully tells his love (Margot Robbie) as she prepares to leave Barbieland. “It’s Barbie” and Ken. There is no “just Ken”.

That all changes when a ballad piano note kicks in and Gosling’s – er-keen – flaunts a singing voice. The melodramatic pore over the hardships he endured throughout his manufactured plastic life, wondering if he was destined for the average bleached-blonde legacy.


And we feel the man. It’s hard to distinguish yourself in a world where every man is also a part-time astronaut with six pack abs? It all boils down to one line: “I’m just Ken / Anywhere else I’d be 10.”

And to top it all off, Slash’s guitar flourishes add a welcome dose of cheeky machismo. Watch Gosling sing a bit of “I’m Just Ken” below, before Barbie Premieres Friday, July 21st.

starry Barbie The soundtrack also features the Nicki Minaj/Ice Spice collaboration “Barbie World”, PinkPantheress’s “Angel”, Karol G’s WATI and Dua Lipa’s song of the week “Dance the Night”.
