Barbie's Ken


If you're wondering why former Barbie's Cradle lead singer and now solo artist Barbie Almabis is smiling these days -- it's because she's making beautiful music with someone. No, I'm not talking about her new album (though she does have one coming out), I mean it in the figurative sense!

I interviewed Barbie at the Lovapalooza launch party, and the whole time, a tall guy in an all black get-up was watching her intently. I thought he was a curious onlooker, but I later found out that he's actually Barbie's "special friend". The good-looking guy is the son of a former military man turned Senator. He looks like a younger version of his dad sans the moustache(clue, clue!)

The very private Barbie was quite shy about discussing her love-life. Even the guy, who has a high-profile father, was uncomfortable about the media attention -- he would cover his face everytime the camera would focus on him. I did find out that their "relationship" is fairly new. Whether they'll hit the right notes, only time will tell. I do wish them all the best, as they make a lovely couple.

And speaking of the right notes, Barbie is coming out with a new album in a few months time. She says the album will feature a newer sound which she describes as, "less jazzy and more pop rock". Will her love songs be inspired by real life? Just asking... =)

Hi Nina,

When love and art meld, Lovapalooza or not, the best comes out. I hope Barbie's new album will be her best one so far, inspired or not. =)

ang boyfriend or husband ay hindi patunay sa kasarian ng tao. . . opinion ko lng po yan.

eyo, yep am very much agree with wat anonymous said that having a boyfriend or a husband makes you a straight gel.
kaya nga sila nagbo-boyfriend or nag-aasawa to cover up sumthing dahil baka hindi knows ng parents na lesbian siya? or para marami pa ring boys na mag-ilusyon kay Barbie?
Nakasabay ko siya sa plane goin' to Roxas years ago at kitang-kita ko 'no na may kasama siyang gel and knows ko umamoy.
niwei, sana hindi nagsasayang ng panahon ang guy kay Barbie....

eh malay nyo naman, nagkaroon siya ng realization na girl pala siya. people change you know tulad ni angel aquino. mas mabuti pa mag-focus na lang tayo sa music ni barbie. and to barbie, kung saan ka masaya, dun ka. if your happy now, happy rin ako para sa yo. yun lang po.
