My blood is boiling because I just heard that 8-year-old beauty queen Britney Campbell got Botox. She didnít just get Botox. Her mother gave it to her. Why? Because Britney complained that she had wrinkles, and now, post-Botox, she feels like she “looks way better, like, beautiful, pretty, like, all those kinds of nice words.”
Britney and her mother Kerry were on Good Morning America, talking about her extreme beauty regimen, which includes waxing and Botox. And according to Stylist.com, they showed ďa slew of photos depicting Britney with bruises, puffy cheeks and ice packs.Ē
What is happening to us? How can this be true?
According to the Huffington Post, Britneyís mom is unapologetic about her decision to give her daughter Botox. Iím all about being unapologetically YOU, but seriously — this crosses my line. Shame on you, Mama. This is just not cool. As far as Iím concerned, this is child abuse and should be illegal. Someone should call Child Protective Services.
No wonder our daughters grow up and have eating disorders, get 20 plastic surgeries on extreme makeover reality TV shows, and wind up suicidal when they lose their looks. Poor Britney. I wish I could get my hands on that girl and teach her what I teach my gorgeous 5-year-old daughter — that true beauty lies within, and the sooner you learn to accept that a rich, fulfilling life is filled with pimples, bad hair days, wrinkles, sagging breasts, muffin tops, varicose veins, blotchy patches, and turkey necks, the sooner youíll find inner peace with the body youíre blessed to live in.
