Dua Lipa is currently enjoying worldwide success as a pop star, but she has decided it's time to diversify. In fresh posters for Greta Gerwig's upcoming 'Barbie' movie, the singer made a surprise appearance as a mermaid-inspired Barbie doll. She joins an impressive star-studded cast of Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, Ncuti Gatwa, Nicola Coughlan, Alexandra Shipp, Ritu Arya, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Hari Nef, Emma Mackey, America Ferrera, Will Ferrell, Michael Cera, and more. The hotly anticipated film arrives in theaters July 21. 

The singer will also appear in the forthcoming spy thriller 'Argylle' alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Henry Cavill, Bryan Cranston, Bryce Dallas Howard, John Cena, and more.  

Celebrities are often known for doing one thing, whether it's singing, acting, or making some seriously scandalous decisions, but many are secretly capable of much more. Of course, not all musicians who venture on-screen achieve fame, and some indeed find shame, but it takes courage to try something new under the careful eye of critics who are poised to tell them not to quit their day job.
