Earlier today, country star Kelsea Ballerini took to Twitter to share her hilarious Halloween costume mimicking ‘Karen’.
For clarification, ‘Karen’ has become a social media character representing any rude, disrespectful, middle-aged man or woman who often demands to speak to the manager. If you have ever worked in retail or the food industry, these ‘Karens’ are the bane of your existence.
Ballerini’s costume was complete with the signature ‘Karen’ hairstyle, a bottle of wine, and a shirt reading “I Need to Speak to the Manager”. The sunglasses, earrings, and purse added to the energy as the stereotypical ‘Karen’ is often depicted with large frame sunglasses and equally tacky accessories.
“I need to speak to the manager of 2020” the tweet reads.
A fair sentiment for a year that doesn’t even really allow room for trick or treating. With that said, 2020 has not been all too rough on Kelsea Ballerini. The year came with the release of her pair of albums Kelsea back in March and Ballerini In September along with a slew of singles.
In March, Ballerini also released a couple of songs with Halsey. These two songs titled “the other girl (with Halsey)” have garnered over 23 million streams. “This Feeling,” her break out collaboration with The Chainsmokers has now amassed over 400 million streams.
In this sense, Ballerini seems to have quite a bit of speaking to managers– music managers at least. The young star should continue to grow and hopefully release some more music before the year is out. Not before eating some well-deserved candy.
