Gwyneth Paltrow Blasted For Selling Little Girls’ Bikinis Over GOOP

gwyneth paltrow kids bikinis

To tell you the truth, I don’t really give a shit that Gwyneth Paltrow is selling bikinis for little girls through her website, GOOP. Gwyneth Paltrow is also the person who suggested your spring wardrobe could use a $1,615 black skirt. She’s not really the arbiter of sensibility or good taste, no matter how many thousand-dollar clothing items she convinces you that you just have to have. The bikini in question is a $45 miniature version for girls (pictured at right) that matches an adult design, all of which were created by designer Melissa Obadash for GOOP. I do think that bikinis are too grown up for five-year-olds; I also think that this battle against the sexualization of young girls has already been lost. Bikinis for little girls aren’t going to go anywhere.  I wouldn’t buy a bikini for my own hypothetical kid because I just think one-pieces are more appropriate, but Gwynnie and her GOOPies can do what they want — and expect the rest of us to laugh at them.

Dad’s Amazing Story Of How His Son Got The “Sofia The First” DVD

Okay, so this story is a little old, but I’m posting because it’s still utterly charming:  a little boy wanted the “Sofia The First” DVD, a random douchebag in line piped up to say the kid shouldn’t watch “girl movies,” the boy’s dad defended his son’s right to watch princess flicks, and then some lady in line offered to buy the kid “Sofia The First” because seeing a dad stick up for his kid’s girly interests made her day. Yay, there are good people in the world! [Her.ie]

He Plays All The Instruments

Really, what’s the point of having a baby if he won’t star in his very own viral videos? This is Quentin Rex, son of music lover Joey Angerone, who bravely lets his toddler play with instruments and then layers them together into Quentin’s very own jam. And Quentin’s even got a rocker boy fauxhawk to complete the look. You can watch Quentin’s first music video, this time back when he was still sucking on a binky, here. My ovaries are throbbing to the beat. [Laughing Squid]

Karen Braithwaite is a mom any Barbie lover would be lucky to have: she is asking Mattel to make birthday party merchandise featuring black Barbie dolls.

Mattel already sells black Barbie dolls (Barbie’s black friend Christie appeared in 1968; these days Barbie herself is black) and certain black Barbie items, such as stickers. But their sets of party goodies — cups, plates, etc. — do not include a complete set with black Barbies. All the full sets portray Barbie as white.   Keep reading »

You can thank “Girls” for this: according to some new baby name study from baby-naming experts Nameberry, Marnie is the top hot new baby name of 2013. Why people would want their kid to share a name with a whiny, self-absorbed, terrible-singing character on an HBO show is beyond me, but there you go. One man’s warbly bitch is another’s cute baby name. After the jump, the rest of Nameberry’s list, and what we imagine might be the motivation behind the sudden rise in popularity of these names.
