Rob Thomas Is Cool With Being Clowned By Barbie, Dedicates “Push” To Ryan Gosling

Rob Thomas, what a mensch. You might recall how we wrote about there being a very memorable needle-drop in the Barbie movie where Ryan Gosling (as Ken) sings Matchbox Twenty’s 1997 hit “Push.” The moment is meant to poke fun at Matchbox Twenty being the ultimate bro band, while the song’s lyrics (which were never intended to be misogynistic, as they’re about Thomas’ emotionally abusive ex) take on special meaning in Kendom. Thomas, turns out, is totally fine being clowned on by Barbie.
