India Arie Takes a Stand for Blue Ivy




Blue Ivy, precious daughter of superstars Beyoncé and Jay-Z has been a celebrity since the day she was born.

There have been countless photos taken of Blue traveling the world with her parents, even appearing in her mother’s music videos. She is normally spotted doing the cutest things like locking lips with Alicia Key’s son Egypt Dean, or trying to walk in her mother’s high heels. Unfortunately, all the cuteness isn’t enough from some fans. When you’re famous, even if you’re a cute two year old, it isn’t right if someone doesn’t have something negative to say.

For the past year, under every post that involves Blue fans send enormous amounts of shade when it comes to her hair. Blue has natural hair, meaning the texture has not been chemically altered. As black people our hair is genetically different. It is more kinky, curly, and frizzy but since the invention of the relaxer, women seem to think “they woke up like this”, forgetting this is part of who we are. “Why don’t Beyoncé do her hair?” said fans, “Her hair is nappy.”

rs_1024x759-131227103221-1024.beyonce-blue-ivy.122713-1In the following weeks, baby Carter was spotted in the arms of her father wearing a neatly brushed puff. Some fans made a big deal about her new style but others still shook their heads in disappointment. It is unclear what kinds of hair styles would appease the Carter family critics but since she is only two, there aren’t many options. But one critic by the name of Jasmine Toliver thought it was her calling to create a petition called “Comb Her Hair.” She and many others people with lots of time on their hands expressed their dislike for Blue’s natural tresses. Once Toliver started to gain media attention she quickly retracted her statement and said that it was all just a “joke.”

As of June 2014, Blue’s parents are worth a combined nine hundred and fifty million dollars, enough to get Blue’s hair done every day of her life; which should inform outsiders that her locks are flowing freely by choice.

R&B singer India Arie has had to deal with her natural hair struggles and the media. She came to the young child’s defense in response to Toliver’s petition. Arie released this statement:

Article-india_lMy thoughts on (Blue Ivy’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.  WHY?  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. -India

    See many fishing reels they have, what type of wagers it enables,
    what kinds of multipliers that employs and what forms of history it permits anyone
    to participate in.

    Great blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Cheers!
