Brown Is Beautiful

Now, let's be clear... the video below is not news-worthy for a number of reasons. But we're still going to talk about it.




Toddlers and Tiaras makes us sick. Yes, it's funny sometimes, but when you sit down and think about what it is you're watching, it's enough to make even those with the strongest stomachs barf like a pageant mom.

With THAT said... we have seen the parents on this show do a lot of f'ed up stuff to their daughters, and while spray tanning isn't necessarily something we'll do to our future daughter (she'll be black, so we won't have to), we're not sure it's something we 100% shun, either.

But 4 year old Allyson wanting to be "brown" like Beyonce? Um... take a number, honey. Because we've wanted to be a "brown" girl LONG before your 4-year-old ass was even THOUGHT of. And we've been playing with "brown" Barbies long before then, too. And then when Barbies weren't cool anymore, we played with "brown" Bratz dolls. And then when we realized Bratz dolls were ugly and would never be popular if they were real people and not toys, we switched to "brown" My Scene Barbies (and gurllllllllllll, she was FINE)


So, put a ring on THAT, bitch. Cause you ain't got NOTHIN' on us.
