The rich are definitely different. According to online reports, actor Brad Pitt took his children Zahara and Shiloh shopping in Paris, France where mommy, Angelina Jolie, is filming a movie.

Brad allowed the children to pick out their own clothes. So while, 5-year-old Zahara busied herself selecting girly dresses and skirts, Brad took 3-year-old Shiloh across the street to the boy's store where he shelled out $10,000 on the entire Bonpoint boys 2010/Summer collection for Shiloh, who only prefers boy's clothes.

Brad says Shiloh has been in her boyish stage for awhile now. He said: "She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it's a 'Peter Pan' thing. So we've got to call her John, 'Shi, do you want...' - 'John. I'm John.' And then I'll say, 'John, would you like some orange juice?' It's just that kind of stuff that's cute to parents, and it's probably really obnoxious to other people." Read more...

    Yep, when she's 18 we'll be hearing a story of her getting a wiener too.

    Good morning SR Fam!!

  • ksmommy05

    *smh* she had to get the idea from somewhere. A 4 yr old just doen't wake up one day and decide she'd like to now be a he and be called john and only wear boy clothes.

  • Smokie

    She will be on hormones and completely living as a boy by the time she's 8.

    Not cute. As a parent it's our job to correct kids. What mother would not want their baby girl in pretty pink dresses?

  • ms.truth

    This is just bad parenting...This is a beautiful little girl who is going to grow up confused about her identity because her parents didn't correct her when she was younger. She's not going to know whether or not she's male or female. I don't see how any parent could approve of this...She's too young to be making her own decisions. A parent's job is to mold the child into being a productive adult, not let a 3 year old say she wants to be called by a boy's name. I want to rescue Zahara from this weird household.

    Uh oh, why does this post sound like a topic on Tyra's show

  • Anna

    In the pic Shilo is saying help me I have two crazy parents. :lol:

  • SweetP1984

    Maybe She's just going through a little tom boy phase. I remember when I was young my mother used to always dress me up in girly stuff and I hated it. As soon as I was able to dress myself I always wore jeans, t-shirts and tennis. My mother hated it, but it was what I liked and felt comfortable in.

    There is no way I'd allow my daughter to refer to herself as "John" at 5yo. She's just a baby. They need to reinforce positive self image..Look at Angelina..she seems to be spiraling out of control.

  • Cinnamon Kisses

    :rofl: @ Quitta

  • Shauny

    If they'd pay more attention to what they are approving their child to do instead of how many cameras and tabloids are following if they're are they on/off relationship, they'd know what they're doing isn't cool.


    With that said I also don't think it's cool that Tom and Katie's 3rd walks around in damn high heels, makeup and a purse on a daily basis at age 3. You don't let your kids do everything they ask you to do.

  • m9ser1

    to sweetpea i did the same thing.. and my g-mom hated it... i was a "tlc, Boss" dressing girl. my daughter went thru it too.. now i can't get her out the mirror. it's a phase.. and if it's not commend Shiloh for knowing who she is at an early age.. some grown folk can't say that..

    WOW!!! This is when the parents should correct her. That is pure craziness

  • OutsidetheBox

    So no one in here had a...nickname? Or was a tomboy?

    Well....I guess when she grows up and decides to live as a man, they wont be surprised.

    :lol: it would be you to challange us. I think most girls were tomboys and had nicknames, what parent would purposely spend $10,000 to buy boys clothes for their daughter. I am all for self expression but there is a time and a place for everything. It has been so long I don't remember what this kid looks like in a dress or pretty colors. Some parents give their kids too many choices, kids have to learn that life is not about what you want. We have to raise kids to understand rejection and circimstance per our actions.

  • OutsidetheBox know I love an "underdog" issue or person! :yes: ... I just want ppl to remember that just because you do something once doesnt mean you'll always do it... its over the top to indulge to the tune of 10k but would we be as outraged if it were girl clothes? And what are "girl clothes" by the way? "Boy clothes"...same question? Is that like "talking like a white girl" LOL

    As the "future" we can define things you know...we dont have to go by status quo... once upon a time we were "colored" and women didnt do "men" jobs... :coffee: *steps off soapbox*

    Personally I think lil mama is going to be horrified when she gets older but what about her life is normal? From the ppl she calls sibilings to the ppl she calls parents..

    How y'all doing this morning anyway?

  • chase

    I agree w/ you Outsidethebox....

    I would not go and spend 10k on a boys wardrobe for my daughter. But 10k to them is like 100 dollars to us. Also we were not in the store so we don't know how much he really spent. If we did not see it w/ our own eyes, how do we know its a fact..

    I remember as a kid I wanted to be a yt girl w/ blond hair and be called Sarah...
    My granny got me the wig after weeks of begging and they called me Sarah. That phase lasted about 6 months and then I went on to something else...

    Girl clothes = traditionally feminine attire
    Boy clothes = traditionally masculine attire

    I think the problem with the world today that is that everyone is trying to do too much. I'm sure a pedophile can argue along the same lines that you are arguing. "why is it wrong to date a child?" who makes this "right" or "wrong?". Or I guess we can start asking why is it wrong to marry one's sister or brother, dad, or mother. Yes once upon a time, we'll be saying to those same things. I fear for the future.

  • mirsmommy

    They're friggin weirdos, man.

    Good morning, yall. :coffee:

  • Shauny

    outside I hear you because I was a tomboy as well when I was little but it wasn't at my parents urging and the closest I got to boy stuff was hightop gymshoes. If my baby told me to call her John it wouldn't happen. That's too encouraging IMO.

    BTW I hate when people say "talking like a white" anything, I prefer the term using proper English. Some of my family say my son and younger daughter talks white or even that I sound like a white girl on the phone...I'm like WTF is that?

  • OutsidetheBox

    :rolleyes: Srsly? A definition? :lolol: Ok…but those were rhetorical questions…I wasn’t being straight laced with that comparison…a short time ago a man wouldn’t be caught dead in pink but now…you know.

    But if you wanna go there, gender stereotyping and programming is a very real thing…and I think varied experiences allow for better, more well-rounded mates… my dad taught me how to change the oil and a flat…My bf is lucky…I still call him, don’t get it twisted, but it’s just cause I'm lazy, not because I can’t… I don’t really see where you are coming from with your pedophile thing because peds are
    TOTALLY diff from regular "gay" folks IMO, but mkay then…

    The bottom line is that stereotypes are bad because they limit potential! Maybe she will have a better understanding of men’s wear and develop a fab menswear line :shrug:

    “I think the problem with the world today that is that everyone is trying to do too much.” :rolleyes: again…

    Morning @ Mirs..and Agreed!

  • OutsidetheBox

    @Shauny, I’m battling those demons right now! My girls are being persecuted by the other kids for “talking like white girls”… we You*TUBE’d Raven and I did the whole is she white? She sounds like you! We had a bunch of :idea: moments.

    And a big middle finger to the folks (my outside of work fam/friends) exclaiming, “ You sound like a crakka” when I answer at work… WTF.

  • miss gia

    Imma put my two cents in here, STOP TALKING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLES KIDS!

    Damn, over the weekend my mom was just talking about how when I was at that age, you couldn't tell me I was not Will ( I have ZERO recollection of this *side eye* ).

    Let kids be kids...


    Brad and Angie can raise their kids any way they see fit. I doubt I will have to worry about Shiloh jacking folks when she gets older, so I am not worried about how she is raised or what she is allowed to wear. If she likes it I love it. Ya'll need to worry about little girls who are forced to wear outfits that look like they could cause a damn rash with all those ruffles on it. Or babies having migraines over tight azz braids and clips holding two strands of damn hair..... :coffee:

  • ms.truth

    Learning roles of both males and females and wanting to be of another gender are two different things...this child not only wants to dress in typical male clothes, but also wants to be called by a male name which leads to the thought that she's not comprehending that she is a female, not a male. As parents, they shouldn't encourage this. They're setting here up for a lifetime of confusion.

  • OutsidetheBox

    LOL VI, ppl be all up in arms bout the wrong stuff!

  • Choco

    Oh well maybe not obnoxious but I'm confused as to why it would be encouraged....

  • onlinefan

    i don't have kids but i kind of understand what they are doing. they are letting her choose her way without correcting her on what's right or wrong in their, ours or society's eyes. they are promoting self expression.

    however, i think it's taking it a little too far spending money buying her a boys wardrobe. i think i would instead buy girls clothes just not anything really frilly and girlie. just plain basic pants and tops in neutral colors instead of all feminine clothing. i don't believe i would buy her boys clothing at all.

    she may be just going through a stage or she may actually be a child who is going to be gay and realized it from birth.
