5 Gripes Folks Have with Celebrity Kids

In honor of the 5th birthday of Miss Suri Cruise, arguably the most gabbed about celebrity bambino in existence, we are celebrating by noting that she isn’t the only celeb kid people like to take umbrage with. Take heart, Suri! You’re not alone.


#5 Harlow & Sparrow’s Unusual Names

People get up in arms in regarding celebrity baby names in general – as if it has a bearing on our lives, right? Yet, it seems these two babies of Joel Madden and Nicole Richie take the brunt of the ‘why did they name their kids that’ debate. Well…these two and Apple Martin.

Maybe it’s not so much their first names that raises a flag, but it’s their full birth names instead – Harlow Winter Kate and Sparrow James Midnight.

If you don’t like their names, the good news is you can have children of you own (or pets) and names them whatever you want to.

#4 Liam’s Pedicures

Maybe this shouldn’t be that out of the ordinary, after all dad Dean McDermott is infamous for having his toes painted red, so why not Liam McDermott too? And mom Tori Spelling has sent out numerous tweets time and time again defending the spa treatment as a family past-time.

Why pampering for the kids?

Dean told Us Weekly,

“Whenever we can, they come get manicures and pedicures with us and they love it! Liam has blue and red on his toes like Spider-Man this week and green on his fingernails like The Hulk.”

P.S. Yes, even Liam tweets when getting his pedi on. Stars’ kids are just like us! Have no fear, Liam isn’t going to town on the BlackBerry, Tori posts the tweets for Liam. Still, rather odd concept, yes?

#3 Kingston’s Bleached Hair

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale caught flack for letting their 4 year old son, Kingston Rossdale, bleached his hair back in 2009. Although, if any 4-year-old could rock the bleach blonde look, it is Kingston. Still, moms were on edge calling out Gwen for the using chemicals on her young son’s hair.

Kingston, like Liam, enjoys indulging in a pedi every once in a while too.

#2 Suri’s High Heels/Goes to Starbucks/Uses a Pacifier

Second to last, but not least – it’s everyone’s favorite walking Starbucks advertisement. When have Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes not been under fire for something – anything? It’s kind of what they do. The latest in the ‘let’s attack the Cruise’s saga,’ it seems the world has taken offense that little Suri Cruise still uses a pacifier.

Don’t hate on her because she’s a fashionista, or because she gets Starbucks at her every whim (don’t we all wish) or because her dad has no problem jumping on couches with her.

If we’re being honest here, we are all just jealous that Tom Cruise reads her bedtime stories and not us, right?

#1 Shiloh’s Tom Boy Style

How many times have we heard this one? “Shiloh Jolie-Pitt dresses like a boy!” The proper response to that might be, “and…?” Aside from gawkers simply wondering why, some speculated that Angelina Jolie was dressing her daughter that way on purpose. Funny thing is, Angie had Shiloh in dresses when she was a baby. Maybe, just maybe, Shi is picking out her own clothes these days?

If little Shiloh chooses to express herself through wearing hats, suspenders and ties – does it really matter?

Food for thought.

Just wait until these kids become teenagers – the world will have even more hot topics to point fingers about then. Oh boy, I fear for the year 2021.
