Blue is the new pink.
Singer Pink shared a photo on Thursday night of herself dyeing her daughter Willow’s hair blue to send a message to mom-shamers everywhere who criticised Jessica Simpson for doing the same.
On Wednesday, Simpson posted a photo of 7-year-old Maxwell, whose natural blond hair was partially tinted pink and blue in honour of Disney’s ‘Descendants 3’.
While the ‘Descendants’ official Instagram account commented a supportive “Looking good!”, others protested that it was “so sad” and “a shame”, claiming Maxwell was “too young” for hair dye.
But Pink, for one, is a fan of Maxwell’s new ‘do. The pop star has coloured her 8-year-old daughter’s hair before, and she was happy to do it again in solidarity with her fellow mother-musician.
“I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her seven year old get her hair coloured,” she captioned a photo of Willow’s fresh turquoise locks. “So we thought we’d share what we did yesterday. #bluehairdontcare #getyourownkids.”
Like her stage name, Pink has never been one to shy away from a little colour. She recently released an animated music video for her song ‘Can We Pretend’, which includes a cartoon version of the singer with bright purple hair. Her latest album, ‘Hurts 2B Human’, debuted on April 26.
