India Arie Writes Long Tweet About Attention to Blue Ivy Hair (Details)
With so much discussions and talks about Blue Ivy untamed hair, it brought soulful singer India Arie to speak up. The final straw for the “I Am Not My Hair” singer has to be when it was reported that a Brooklyn woman started a petition of the “issue” with Blue Ivy hair. Here’s what India Arie had to say:
My thoughts on #BlueIvy’s Hair
Why does ANYone get the idea that its ok to make fun of a child?
In public no less?
This celebrity culture that hypnotizes people into thinking a person is LITERALLY NOT REAL because you see them on television is a spell the watcher HIM or HER SELF MUST BREAK.
Blue Ivy — is a CHILD.
and ANYONE thinking to themselves right now:
“But she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth so what does it matter what I say”
Denying ANY PERSON their humanity , is a GAME we should ALL stop playing.
Because it’s the kind of PERSON YOU WANT TO BE.
Why NOT be a person who is loving towards human kind as a whole AND people as individuals?
WHY NOT be a person protects the hearts of children?
I think! all these people making negative comments would feel the SAME WAY if Blue Ivy’s hair were TOO DONE. If she had a relaxer, of Hair pulled too tight at the edges.
being gentle with a child’s hair is simply appropriate – this goes the same for ALL children.
come ya’ll Lol
Were ARE better than this.
Couldn’t say it better my self. Leave us your thoughts and comments. Do you think it’s too much attention on this topic?
