Apparently, not everyone wants to look like Barbie. HorrorPops lead singer/bassist Patricia Day has filed a lawsuit in Indiana District Court against toy manufacturer Mattel for stealing her stylish "rocker" look. She claimed that the "Hard Rock Barbie" released last year is based on her Hell Yeah album cover and that the doll is a spitting image of herself.

​​I guess any '50s pinup-influenced rocker with tats, black hair, fishnets and red nails should file a suit, too? Apparently, Mattel obtained licenses for other dolls from stars including Cyndi Lauper, Joan Jett and Deborah Harry, but not her. Day is seeking an injunction and punitive damages for the "self-endorsement."

Find another female bass player with pale skin, black hair, a half sleeve of tats, and a pinup style, who plays a painted upright, and your point is valid. Anyone other prominent women in the scene that look like that should also sue, but Mrs. Day is the only one. Rockabilly Barbie is clearly based on her, and Mattel should have treated Patricia in the same manner as the other singers. Just because she's not a household name like the other women, doesn't mean she shouldn't get the same respect.
