Talking about the artists we love

Pink trolls ‘parent police’ with Instagram photo dying daughter’s hair blue — you go, girl!

P!nk trolls haters with photos of her daughter’s hair being dyed blue

I love P!nk. Not only because she is an incredibly talented artist, but because she also doesn’t put up with shit from anyone. Particularly when it comes to her children.

After all, if she sucked down the constant abuse she gets on social media for the way she parents her kids (and she’s an amazing parent, I might add), she would eventually shrivel away to nothing from all that poison.

Today’s P!nk troll I like even more than some of her others, however, is P!nk’s photograph of the singer dying her 8-year-old daughter Willow’s hair blue.

Done not because she is defending her own parenting, or her own kids, this time, but defending fellow artist Jessica Simpson instead.

Simpson herself was ‘mom-shamed’ (stupid f*cking term!) for allowing her own 7-year-old daughter to die the ends of her hair. (And no, I’m not linking to any of the 10,000 articles talking about this — they’re despicable).

So, P!nk, defending a fellow artist, went into action. Up went photos of Willow having her hair dyed blue, with the comment:

“I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her seven year old get her hair colored. So we thought we’d share what we did yesterday”

Followed by the equally fabulous tags:

P!nk’s parenting skills and her daughter

And, honestly, I have little to add to that, because it’s none of my business if her daughter wants her hair dyed blue (although, way to go, Willow, expressing yourself like that!), but I will add this.

Every time I see another P!nk troll of the haters when it comes to defending herself, her kids, or someone else, I always think “Man, those kids are lucky”.

Because Willow is going to grow up to become an incredibly strong, self-confident, not-putting-up-with-the-bullshit-from-haters, defending-others-who-might-not-be-able-to-defend themselves woman, just like her momma.

And P!nk’s son, Jameson, will grow up to be a man who not only defends himself, but who also supports his own mother and sister, and other women as well.

In other words, you keep doing what you’re doing P!nk, because the world needs more people like you. Motherf*cking warriors that refuse to bend over and ‘take it’.
