Kelsea Ballerini now sees “legit, a real life Barbie doll” as the most-liked comment to her latest bikini snap. The 26-year-old country singer whose bombshell good looks are as much a part of her identity as her power voice updated her Instagram ahead of 4th of July weekend. Kelsea’s snap was a throwback to her Mykonos, Greek travels. It included Instagram’s adored pool setting, a reminder of the “homecoming queen?” singer’s stunning figure, and – seemingly – it launched the #thighgapenvy hashtag now seen in the comments.
Scroll for the photo clocking Kelsea over 96,000 likes – not bad for an Instagram account with 2.1 million followers. It showed the Tennessee native shot far out and full length as she stood at the edge of an infinity pool and backed by Mediterranean Sea waters. Kelsea, who has made headlines this year for stuffing her face with chips and lowering the mouth-held snacks into a jar of ranch dip – via a push-up –was flaunting a super-slim silhouette as she posed in a tiny orange bikini with a one-shouldered finish.
The “Barbie doll” comment did not go unnoticed. Scroll for the singer’s response.
A caption from Kelsea referenced the COVID-19 pandemic as she wrote: “A year ago in Greece ?? // where in the world are you wishing you could adventure to this summer?”
A quick look at the comments section suggests a fanbase willing to put going to a Kelsea concert over any fancy vacations. Likewise, one that sees a bit of an iconic look to the star. “You are legit a real life Barbie doll. #thighgapenvy” a fan wrote, with over 80 others agreeing.
Kelsea bravely swooped in – it looks like she was willing to admit that quarantine might have taken a toll on her waistline. The blonde has been ordering in McDonald’s nuggets, alongside admitting that her trips to fast-food chain Chick-Fil-A are a “weekly” date deal.
“I will be honest and tell you that my body does not look like this at the moment, because quarantine and emotions and wine. which is also ok, ??” she wrote.

Kelsea may have made headlines for releasing her third “kelsea” studio album amid a pandemic – and having it dubbed an “ideal” quarantine companion by Rolling Stone – but the stunner has also been causing buzz over those fast-food updates. March saw Kelsea update her Instagram in bed with wine and wearing McDonald’s socks. While Kelsea has fried her own chicken on Instagram, she’s also been ordering it in, glugging wine, and snacking on cookie dough in bed.
