Shakira Says ‘Barbie’ Movie ‘Emasculated’ Her Sons

The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer said her sons “hated” the ‘Barbie’ movie because pop culture should “empower women without robbing men of their possibility to be men.”

No-talent tax fraud says what?

The movie was about a doll. It wasn’t some massive life lesson.

Also, even if it was seen that way, it’s “message” was so convoluted as to be incomprehensible.

Motherfucker. My iPhone changed its to “it’s,” I changed it back, and then didn’t the motherfucker change it back AGAIN?

Men have enjoyed several thousand years of being in charge of pretty much everything. And a two-hour movie about a plastic toy somehow emasculated these guys? They sound fragile.

The overrated movie wasn't even that empowering to women, how? Half was about Ken.

Are you implying that men automatically support each other whether or not they agree with each other?

Oh please the fucking movie wasn't even about Barbie. It was about KEN.

I'm amazed at the lack of security boys and men over their own sexuality when it comes to "Barbie."

The tougher they present, the more fragile their masculinity is

I wonder how she feels about those who say a boy should have a father and not be raised by a single mother.

by Anonymousreply 18April 1, 2024 5:49 PM

She's right.

That movie was a fucking pink nightmare.

It was DOG SHIT.

And it got "rewarded" accordingly by the Academy, with ZERO wins.

It never should have been nominated in the first place.

The movie was nothing but hype, and people bought into it because there was nothing else to watch last Summer, coupled by a $150,000,000 advertising campaign to brainwash people into seeing it.

Tons of commercial, cross-promotion with other companies, and lots of colorful commercials just added to the super over-drive hype, that boosted ticket sales.

But once people watched the movie, they realized that there was no "there, there." The Empress had no clothes.

It was a preachy, "female power" mess of a movie, that alienated men and that boys had zero interest in watching.

So yes, Shakira is right.

R19 It's one thing to hate the movie, but to feel emasculated by it is ridiculous.

Loser bitch.

The very obvious flipside of the feminism message in Barbie is that society compartmentalizes men into a few prescribed boxes, too. Not every man is into golf, or whiskey, or football, or heterosexuality, etc. It said men should be able to choose who they want to be and not who society deems 'normal'. It wasn't a perfect movie, but I really don't understand how some people totally missed the point that it was as pro male as it was pro female.

Same reason everyone else went to see it.


The media hype made it seem like Barbie Dog Shit was the "Must See Movie" of the Summer of 2023.

It turns out that Oppenheimer was the movie of substance from last Summer, and Barbie was nothing more than the creation of media buzz and hype.

Everyone I know who saw it, was greatly disappointed.

Shakira makes me sick. Ever since Pique cheated on her, she's been running around with her girl power songs, but she had zero problem "stealing" Pique away from his girlfriend years ago, and Shakira was engaged and dumped her fiance of 12 years for Pique. I hate to use the word "stealing" because cheaters chose to do it, but you know what I mean. Anyway, this bitch only thinks cheating is wrong when she's the one being hurt/losing. She's even released songs in the past (in spanish) about how she's so young and pretty, and that a man should leave his hag wife for her)

“Barbie” is the shittiest movie ever made. There are women talking about being changed by the film, “I didn’t know that I could say no to a man.” The fuck are these dumb broads coming from?

Putting her kids in those matching Elton John-style jackets in OP's photo would emasculate them more than taking them to see any movie.

Of course by clicking on the article you actually read:

the singer said her sons “felt that [the movie] was emasculating,” and she agrees with them to a “certain extent.”

I wonder what the Spanish word the kids used to describe the film to her. I'm thinking a click bait translation may be at work here, though I stand by what I said at r42. That was about the Post article.

R47 I browsed those pics of Elton and was shocked by how thin he once was. His looks peaked at Crocodile Rock. He's been a fat sweaty mess for decades now. The boys' jackets are a bit odd, but maybe that's the style in Spain? Nice looking boys though.
