Today’s children of celebrities have it too good. Call me nostalgic, but in my day celebrity brats had to work really hard to steal the spotlight away from their preening parents.
Getting caught underage in the Viper Room, stealing a car before getting involved in a high-speed car chase, or snorting a line of coke off a stripper’s cleavage and then getting arrested for carrying a concealed weapon were time-honoured rites of passage for the offspring of Hollywood stars.
Nowadays, standards have slipped to the point where all a celebrity kid has to do to bring disgrace on their family and generate click-bait for Facebook is cut their hair.
That’s right. Earlier this year Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s then 11 year-old daughter Willow attracted the attention of the world’s media BECAUSE SHE CUT HER HAIR.
