Barbie: The Princess & the Popstar

Synopsis: In this sparkling musical adventure, Barbie(TM) stars as Tory(TM), the kind-hearted princess of Meribella who would rather sing and dance than perform her royal duties. When her favorite pop star Keira(TM) visits the Kingdom, the girls discover they have much in common, including a magical secret that lets them look like one another. At first, swapping places seems like a great idea, until each girl realizes that the other's life isn't as easy as it seems! But Meribella also has a magical secret, and when it's stolen, the whole kingdom is put in danger. Will true friendship save the day? Filled with fantastic songs, fabulous fashions, and fun new friends, it's an exciting musical celebration that shows the best thing you can be is yourself.

When I was young

I played for fun

Made up the words

Nobody heard

But now I see

All eyes on me

And suddenly

I'm in a dream

I got a feeling now

Everything's right somehow

Here I am

Being who I want

Giving what I got

Never a doubt now

Here I go

Burnin' like a spark

Light up the dark again

Isn't she great,


Victoria! What are

you doing out here?

Aunt Amelia!

Oh, please, can't I go down to the

concert, just for a little bit?

Absolutely not!

We have guests.

Now come.

And please do something

with your hair!

Royal reception

number nine.

I wake up in the morning

Like the duchess says

When you're gonna

live your life right

I know she thinks

That I'm the fortunate one

But princesses

wanna have fun

Oh princesses wanna have

That's all we really want

Is some fun

When the royal day is done

Oh princesses wanna have fun

I'm steppin' up

Right to the top

That's how I'm wired

I take it higher

I'm in control

I broke the mold

The girl you see

Is up to me

I'm lifting off the ground

Finding the perfect sound

Here I am

Being who I want

Giving what I got

Never a doubt now

Here I go

Burnin' like a spark

Light up the dark again



Again and again and again

Hey, Meribellal

lam pumped

to be here

performing at your kingdom's

500th anniversary!

Princesses wanna have fun

Oh princesses wanna have fun

There's a star

that's right inside you

So come on and let it out

Find out what you're about

andjust shout

Here I am

Being who I want

Giving what I got

Never a doubt now

Here I go

Burnin' like a spark

Light up the dark again

We just wanna

We just wanna

We just wanna

We just wanna

We just wanna

We just wanna

Princesses wanna have fun

Here I am

Being who I want

Giving what I got

Never a doubt now

Here I go

Burnin' like a spark

Light up the dark


We just wanna

We just wanna

We just wanna

Again and again

And again and again

That was hilarious!

That was the

awesomest thing ever!

Did you see

her face?

I hope we didn't

hurt her feelings.

Oh, she doesn't get hurt

feelings, Meredith.

The main thing is...

Wasn't that great?



Now, you'd both better

scoot to your rooms.

Auntie A will be stomping her

way up Anger Avenue any minute.

See you later!

Bye, Tori!

Keira! Keira! Keira!


Tell Phil to kill the snow

on the Fiery Ice intro.

And the drums came in late

again on Rock And Rule...

Remind Kevin that naptime's

after the show, okay?

And what's up with the sets

for the live broadcast?

Here are the designs.

You want the trees

royal purple

or Tokyo violet?

Royal Purple.

And move my Billboard interview to

Saturday, right after the broadcast.

Wonderful show tonight,

Keira, dear!

Your best ever!

I had chills!

Hey, Crider, have you

lined up the cameras?


The record company

was just a tad concerned

about the budget.


Crider, I've been

working my tail off

for the last two years

to get this broadcast.

It'll take my career

to the next level,

which makes it massively

important that it be perfect!

Perfect! Absolutely!

You're so right!

Keira, there's a tea

tomorrow at the castle

for everyone involved

in the festival.

The princess has

requested your presence.

I smell

a photo op!

The princess?

At the castle?

Let's do it.


I need some new choreography

for Saturday's special.

Make it something

like this.

You got it.

Did you forget

where you're going,

or is there

something else?

Well... Yes.

The record company

called again.

And while they loved, loved,

loved your new album photos,

they're, um.

Still wondering when they

can hear some of the, uh...


Naturally, as your

manager, I told them...

As my manager,

you told them that the songs

aren't ready to be heard yet.

And that I'll let them

know when they are.

That's exactly

what I told them.

You know,

you work so hard.

Perhaps, you should take a

break, let me run things.

Now, back when my name

was up in lights...

Gotta go, Seymour.

Please don't

call me Seymour.

Guess, I better actually

write those songs.

I don't get it, Riff.

Writing songs

used to be easy.

Fun, even.

If only

I didn't have

all this other garbage.

Lights, sound,

scheduling, payroll, check,


make it work!

Don't get me

wrong, Riff.

I mean, I'm a star, I'm

livin' the dream, right?

It's just...

I don't know, sometimes I

wonder what it would be like

to just let go.

Princess Victoria.

Now there's a sweet gig.

Lives in a castle,

everything done for her.

She's probably never

worked a day in her life.

Tori? Tori, open the

door this instant!

Auntie A. Do come in.

Enough is enough!

I promised your dear mother I would

raise you to be a proper princess.

But now you and your

gang of tiny thugs

have turned a royal occasion

into a laughing-stock!


Has some misfortune

befallen you?

Don't play the

innocent with me!

This has your mark

all over it.

I was willing to overlook the

exploding cupcakes at tea

and the skunk

at the embassy ball!

I even made excuses

when you hid the

Prime Minister's teeth.

Just his uppers!

Princess Victoria Bethany

Evangeline Renee,

you are almost 18!

It's time you started acting

like a princess of the realm,

not some silly schoolgirl!

Forgive me,

Aunt Amelia.

I'm just having

a bit of fun, that's all.

Fun? You're a Royal.

Duty and responsibility

come before fun.

Have you even begun your

commemoration speech for next week?

Um... Sort of.

Except for the part after

"Ladies and gentlemen. "

As I thought!

I'm returning

to our guests.

And since you refuse to

take your duties seriously,

you can just stay

in your room all night

and write that speech.

But, Aunt Amelia...

Not another word!

I am sorry.

Good night, Auntie.

"Ladies and Gentlemen,

distinguished guests,

"500 years ago, our kingdom

began its rule, and... "

Insert speech here.

"You're a Royal,

"duty and responsibility

come before fun. "


Look at her

In the spotlight

I love her purple hair

She can do

What she wants to

As crazy as she dares

She doesn't

need to be polite

I wish I had her life

Then I would be so free

I wish I had her life

I'd be another me

Look at her

In the throne room

Every hair just right

She has tea

In the morning

And bon bons every night

Wouldn't that be nice?

I wish I had her life

Then I would be so free

I wish I had her life

I'd be another me

They'd do my nails

I'd stroll the grounds

I would wear


And then I'd rock

Have time for me

It just might happen


I wish I had her life

Then I would be so free

And everything

would suddenly be

Just the way that

I dreamed it could be

I wish I had her life

I wish I had her life

I wish I had her life

I wish I had her life



So beautiful and bright

I wish I had her life

Trust me, sir,

Keira's new songs

are fabulous,

best she's ever written!

Shejust, er,

needs a little more time.
