“I’m Just Ken” Oscar Performance

Ok, I’ll be honest here… I’m not that much into The Oscars.

BUTTTT… when I heard that Ryan Gosling was going to perform his hit song from the “Barbie” movie “I’m Just Ken”, well, that got my attention.

Another unpopular opinion of mine: I didn’t think the “Barbie” movie was that great. I know, I know, retract my woman card right now. I wanted to love it, because, hello BARBIE!!!  But I personally was left feeling “meh”. Although, let’s be real, Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling nailed their roles, the entire storyline- for me- was just OK.

That being said, I did love the “I’m Just Ken” song, and Ryan Gosling’s portrayal of Ken was perfect.  And so was the performace of the song last night at “The Oscars”!

Especially as Ryan Gosling was joined by Slash and Wolfgang Van Halen.

Pretty freaking cool.

This made me love Ryan Gosling even more. And I feel like I should buy my hsuabnd a bedazzled hot pink suit now. I’m sure he will heartily disagree.

And this somg will be back in my head all day, as well as yours, so you’re welcome.

Lainey Wilson Performing “I’m Just Ken” at Grammy Pre-Party!

Lainey Wilson had a pretty great weekend, which included winning her first Grammy for Country Album of the Year for “Bell Bottom Country”, and getting to take the stage at the exclusive Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala. No big, right?

Seriously, I am so happy for all of Lainey’s success, and she seems like a super fun, down-to-Earth person who would be awesome to party with.

This is exepmlified by her performace of “I’m Just Ken” from the “Barbie” movie soundtrack at the Clive Davis party:

Isn’t she just the best?

Honestly, I think I like that version better than the original.

Maybe that should be on her next album?

Lainey’s got a super busy year ahead of her, including a lot of tour dates- check ’em out at http://laineywilson.com

“I’m Just Ken” Christmas Version!

Ryan Gosling and Mark Ronson just gave us an early Christmas gidt with the holiday version of “I’m Just Ken”, and it made my morning!

Of course, it’s a spinoff of the “Barbie” movie song “I’m Just Ken”, and it’s perfect.

In case you missed it, Ryan Gosling released an “I’m Just Ken” EP with remixes of the Grammy nominated power ballad from the movie this week.
