Kelsea Ballerini posed in a flattering, vibrant pink dress as a tribute to Barbie after the movie’s smash-hit opening weekend.the country star pledged that she “will ride this barbie wave as long as possible,” as he posted the stunning photo on Instagram on Tuesday (August 1). Her boyfriend, Outer Banks actor Chase Stokes, commented: “Did we wear pink to go see Barbie yes you bet your sweet a** we did also your hot 🥵”
Ballerini’s look comes as the Greta Gerwig-directed film premiered in theaters. Margot Robbie stars as the iconic doll opposite Ryan Gosling as Ken. The nearly two-hour film follows Barbie as she “suffers a crisis that leads her to question her world and her existence,” reads the movie’s description on IMDb. The soundtrack includes music by Dua Lipa, Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice, Sam Smith, Billie Eilish, GAYLE and other artists.
Ballerini also teased her TikTok followers when she posted a clip of herself recording an added verse to “Blindsided,” a track on Rolling Up The Welcome Mat (and she was “f**king nailing it,” a producer can be heard saying in the background). Ballerini performed the new verse when she made her Saturday Night Live debut earlier this year, and it became one of the fan-favorite lyric changes she adopted during live performances on her “HEARTFIRST Tour.” One TikTok user wrote in the comments, for example, “🗣️AND NOW I DONT CARE WHERE YOURE SLEEPING BABY🗣️,” and Ballerini said, “stay tuned 😉.” Watch it here (warning: language):
