Zendaya recently debuted her very own Barbie doll, wearing a replica of the Vivienne Westwood dress and the beautiful locks she rocked at the 2015 Oscars. She posted a photo on Instagram, saying “When I was little I couldn’t find a Barbie that looked like me, my…how times have changed. Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be apart of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty.”

Many on Instagram offered their Congratulations and Kudos, including Nicki Minaj, who, on a picture of her Barbie from 2011, wrote, “Congrats on your doll, Zendaya! Did u know Barbie made me one a [couple] years back? It was such an honor & a HUGE surprise. Anyway, I love your doll’s hair! I love what it means for other little girls who will identify with it & be empowered. Continue to be proud of yourself girls!!!!! #Barbie.”

Instagram was not having it. Comments ranged from, “Why you Tryna steal a teenagers spot light? LOL” and “She makes it all about her,” to “You could have just said congratulations, but whatever.” Feeling the heat, Nicki then posted a side by side of her and Zendaya’s doll, typing, “?? @zendaya ?? they should have matching bff Barbie cars with the dream house to match. Love this.”

While Nicki did show Zendaya love, her post certainly skewed self centered.
What do you think?

Either way, we’re looking forward to seeing how Barbie continues to make brown, black, and frankly all girls everywhere feel even more empowered.
