It’s been a big year for North West, you guys. She’s been pierced, “waxed,” angel-ized, gotten her detective’s license and, of course, been born. Now, she’s having her very first cultural appropriation scandal with this whole “Kidchella” birthday party fiasco.
Long story short: “Kidchella” was the name of North’s first birthday party’s theme, meaning it was like Coachella but for…well, kids. It was an over-the-top and heavily Instagrammable affair complete with a bounce house and ferris wheel. Naturally, this also meant that her Bindi-wearing family members felt the need to wear all the headdresses they could find and pair them with jorts, as one does when they are a very rich and very silly human being. Not satisfied to simply hang out with these folks, North West had to get in on the cultural appropriation game by wearing this outfit:
Somebody page Pharrell‘s PR team so this kid can give a half-hearted pseudo-apology and be all, “Sorry I’m not sorry!” Except it’ll probably sound more like “Bluh bluh blah” because she is a one-year-old. STILL. She should apologize!
Just kidding. I’m joking, of course. North West is an actual baby, so I am pretty secure in assuming she did not choose this theme nor this outfit, and it would silly to blame or critique her for literally anything she does. (People who do that are pretty much tools, so…) So even though I still think that Kim, Khloe, Kanye, Kendall, Kris and every other human being with a name that starts with “K” in their family (and probably the rest of ’em, too) are rather ridic, I think the only thing that can really be observed about North in any of these photos is how effing adorable she is. And how obligatory an “I’mma let you finish that cake” joke must have been at the party.
