Ryan Gosling Playfully Ponders Oscars Performance for “I’m Just Ken”

In a recent interview with W Magazine, Canadian actor Ryan Gosling humorously teased the possibility of performing the hit song “I’m Just Ken” from the Barbie film at the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony. The 43-year-old actor, who portrayed Ken in the popular film, engaged in a playful exchange about his potential involvement in the Oscars musical lineup.

When questioned about the prospect of a performance, Gosling coyly responded, “Well, I haven’t been invited,” adding a touch of wit to his tone. He continued in a lighthearted manner, “And I wasn’t thinking about it until now, and now it’s all I’m going to think about. Do you get paid to sing at the Oscars? Do you have to drive yourself? What kind of scratch is involved? They pick you up at least, right?”

Gosling’s playful banter reflects the light-hearted approach he has taken towards the unexpected success of “I’m Just Ken.” The song, written and produced by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt, has garnered over 70 million streams on Spotify, secured a Grammy nomination, and earned a spot on the prestigious Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The Power Ballad, one of three original songs from the Barbie movie in contention, has made it to the shortlist for Best Original Song at the Oscars. However, in accordance with official Oscars rules, only two songs from a single movie can be nominated in this category. Among the contenders are Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For” and Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night.” Notably, all three tracks received Golden Globe nominations in December, heightening the anticipation for the final Oscar nominations.

As the Oscars season approaches, Ryan Gosling’s jesting remarks add a playful touch to the speculation surrounding whether “I’m Just Ken” will secure a performance slot at the prestigious awards ceremony. The actor’s humorous musings only serve to enhance the intrigue surrounding the potential musical highlights of the upcoming event.
