Today marks the first time an artist has been chosen to be the Sparkle Video two weeks in a row, so let’s just say that I’ve been bitten by the “Eartha Kitt bug”. I’m completely smitten by her attitude in this clip for “I Don’t Care”, which is basically a theme song for those of us who like to do our own thing- all the time, no matter what. Here, she’s a mysterious feline female in a fabulous black catsuit with magical chiffon wings, who makes men rip off their clothes and dance around her like adoring minions. I suppose I love this song because I also “don’t care what the trendies may do” nor care “what they tell me is new” and I especially “don’t care what the people say” as I’ll always “carry on this way.” Indeed, sparkling minds really do think alike.
Check this out Soldiers: I go off on vacation to Berlin (another legendary marathon of fun, thanks for asking!) and while I’m away, Empress of the Aliens™ Barbie® makes her gorgeous debut and bloody sells out! How could she not, in this glamorously galactic outfit made of iridescent metallics and chiffon? Plus, both arms and legs are “encircled in ornate cuffs” just like a proper Space Princess. Like Goddess of the Galaxy™ Barbie® , she was designed by Bill Greening, who has truly cinched the nomination for my new fashion hero, especially with his attention to detail by adding a scorpion-esque head dress, sparkle-tastic eye makeup and fabulously sexy shoes.
Top honors also go out because she is shown modeling in front of a Space Background, similar to the one we had at last year’s Join the Sparkle Army party. Which reminds me Soldiers, the reason I was in Berlin, aside from vacation, was for a “top secret meeting”. Yes indeed …the planning has begun.
