In what is my favorite news item of the day, In Touch Weekly reports that five-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt insists on being called “Shax” by her parents and wants to change her name. Why? “She wants to be just like her brothers, Maddox, Pax and Knox, whose names all end in the letter ‘X’,” In Touch reports. Also of note, apparently when Angelina was Shiloh’s age she changed her name to “Vince.” Even if none of this is true, I heart this story. Shax is just doin’ Shax, which is why she remains my celebrity child role model. [Celebitchy]
Dear In Touch,
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt does not have a crush on Kingston Rossdale. He is not her “first true love.” She is 5 years old. Shiloh is interested in taxidermy and being called “John” and engaging in sword play. She’s basically a little mini-bad ass. Kingston, when he’s not flipping off the paparazzi and getting his nails did, is probably down to look at dead animals and spar with her. It’s called friendship. Can’t a little girl play with a little boy without it being labeled “a crush”? Maybe Kingston has a crush on Shiloh and she’s all, “Nah, bro, not interested. Now engarde!” Consider that.

“I don’t think it’s for the world to interpret anything. She likes to dress like a boy and wants her hair cut like a boy and she wanted to be called ‘John’ for a while. Some kids wear capes and want to be Superman and she wants to be like her brothers. It’s who she is. It’s been a surprise to us and it’s really interesting, but she’s so much more than that – she’s funny and sweet and pretty. But she does love a tie …”
– Angelina Jolie defends her “tomboy” daughter Shiloh to The Daily Mail, following ongoing criticism of the youngster’s preference for “boy” clothes and activities. I love what Angelina says about it not being up to the world to “interpret” what Shiloh’s clothes and activities “mean” — she’s a kid, for heaven’s sake. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
