Inspired by the amazing work of Viek, a Beijing artist who makes Barbie-size versions of classic Lady Gaga ensembles, we started thinking about all the celebs we'd like to see endowed with a Barbie created in their image. After a lot of research -- and a couple unnecessary trips to the American Girl store -- we came up with the following list of 6 celebs we'd like to see in Barbie form.
We'd explain more, but we've got to go back and pick up Lanie from the doll hair salon. We can't wait to see how her double-flip twist turned out!

1.) Hayley Williams: The Paramore singer has already admitted to collecting Barbies so it seems only fitting that she have one of her own. Her hair would change color with warm water and, in a perfect plastic world, she'd be wearing creepers, Dickies pants and an H20 hoodie. Plus, she'd come with a Chad Gilbert boyfriend doll, as well.

2.) Tyson Ritter: When he's not giving you hell on stage with The All-American Rejects, Tyson Ritter can often be seen striking a pose for various clothing campaigns. Yup, homeboy is a male model in his spare time. Color us impressed. And attracted. A doll version of the Oklahoma native would have to come with a vial of silver glitter and your own temporary AAR tattoo.

3.) Katy Perry & Russell Brand: Sure, Katy already has her own doll and likes to kiss girls, and he's had kind of a ton of sex, but the Barbie brand could really benefit from having a power couple in bustiers and extremely tight pants.

4.) Justin Bieber: With his perfect button nose, pouty lips and all-too-perfect coif5., Justin Bieber already looks like a living doll. However, just like Oreos, jelly bracelets and episodes of "Party Down," you can never have too much Bieb. That said, we'd like to see our Bieber doll come with a pair of Nike dunks, a fitted cap and a long-bristled dandy brush so we can spend hours grooming his luxurious hair. What? It's not like that's creepy or anything.

5.) Ke$ha: We imagine Ke$ha's doll incarnation would be a little less Barbie and a little more Jem, but that's just us. Either way, possible accessories include mini Whiskey bottles, hair feathers and flamboyant male backup dancers.

6.) Bill Kaulitz: The Tokio Hotel frontman is so beautiful, we're worried that Barbie might be threatened by his looks. She's been super-insecure since that behatch Bella Swan Barbie hit the scene and started flirting with Edward Cullen Ken.
