Watch out Ken. Janet Jackson has partnered with toy manufacturer Mattel to release her very own special edition Divinely Janet Barbie doll. Proceeds from the sale of the doll will benefit the non-profit organization, Project Angel Food, which provides meals to the needy or those disabled by HIV/AIDS and other serious illnesses in the Los Angeles area.

Valued at $15,000, the look-alike-doll features the singer’s new short hairdo, and a replica of the red and black gown worn during her performance on ‘American Idol’ earlier this year. Staying true to the original outfit, Mattel designer Jackeline Gonzalez duplicated the gown by including hand-placed Swarovski crystals on the fabric, and including the body-hugging cat-suit underneath that Jackson revealed during her second performance during the ‘American Idol’ episode. The doll also comes with a certificate of authenticity and a display case.

While currently up for auction via Charity Buzz, the bidding opened at the beginning of the month and will close on Dec. 15 at 12PM EST. In other Janet Jackson news, the singer is asking fans to pick her 2011 world tour concert stops via JanetJackson.com. Last week, she answered questions submitted by The BoomBox readers.
