On the controversial reality show “Toddlers and Tiaras,” 4-year-old contestant Maddy Jackson, channeled Dolly Parton to win a beauty competition wearing bust and butt enhancement pads. The enhancements gave the toddler an hourglass figure.
To make matters worse, Lindsay, the mother of the young beauty contestant, defended her daughter’s enhancements saying, “To some people, it’s over the top, to us it’s just what happens… It’s just normal. When she wears the fake boobs and the fake butt, it’s just like extra bonus.”
And get this: Maddy’s mom passed the butt and breast pads along to her from when she wore them as a toddler during her pageant days.
Watch the video here:
Are the mothers of these young girls, like Maddy’s mom Lindsay, trying to relive their youth vicariously through their daughters?
While many of us have mimicked our moms by wearing their clothes and high-heeled shoes around the house, Maddy’s ‘Dolly’ beauty look is a grown-up aesthetic that doesn’t belong on a toddler—for play or for show.
Quite frankly, there is something terribly wrong with a young girl trying to imitate the post-pubescent look of a grown woman in my opinion.
How young is too young for a girl to wear fake breast and butt pads? Should these kind of antics be frowned upon?
