Emily is a character in Barbie: Big City, Big Dreams. She is a popstar whose stage name is Emmie. She hides her identity while attending the Handler Arts Academy, and pretends her name is Lee.[1]


Big City, Big Dreams[]

In a press release, Emmie is described as "sweet, shy and completely humble, Emmie is the high-voltage popstar you wouldn’t expect. She was Barbie ‘Brooklyn’ Roberts’ childhood best friend and also attends the summer program at the Handler Arts Academy in disguise in order to study without being recognized."[2]

In a review, Emmie is described as "a teen pop sensation struggling to break free from her controlling father."[3]

It Takes Two[]

In "Barbies Rising", Malibu and Brooklyn meet a TV and music media mogul named Otto Phoenix. He recognizes them from the Times Square performance that Emmie hosted, and he asks them to send him their music.

In "Gone to the Dogs", Malibu and Brooklyn need to rent a recording studio so they can record a demo for Otto. They call Emmie, who gives them the address to the studio she always goes to. It offers mani-pedis and smoothies in between takes. Malibu and Brooklyn can't afford that studio, so they go to Blown Speaker Studios instead.

In "Buddy's Is Booming", Buddy is struggling to pay the rent for his cafe due to low sales. Brooklyn phones Emmie for help. Emmie goes to the cafe and tells her fans she'll be there all day signing autographs and taking selfies. Customers meet Emmie and leave without buying anything, so Emmie says they should make it a rule that customers must buy a pastry before meeting her. Emmie's biggest fan, Emma, buys all 30 pastries so she can have 30 selfies with Emmie. They have fun taking selfies together, and after chatting, Emma thinks she and Emmie are like sisters. Rafa invents a pastry called puffins (puffy muffins) and it helps to popularize the cafe, so customers take selfies with the puffins instead of Emmie.

In "Race to the Finish", Malibu and Brooklyn give their finished demo to Otto. They remind him of how they met and how he recognized them from when Emmie hosted their Times Square performance.

Physical Appearance[]

Emmie is a petite teenage girl with red hair, teal eyes and light skin. In Big City, Big Dreams, when she was younger, she wore a sleeveless denim jacket and a purple top. As a teenager, while disguised as "Lee", she wears a wig and glasses. As a popstar, Emmie wears a blue hoodie with a purple and gold heart on it, a purple top, blue pants with symbols on them and one pant leg pulled up, and gold sneakers.
