The untold truth of childhood beauty pageantsFFOL Editor 1
Why would a child want to erase their “wrinkles?” It’s a good question, and one that was answered by pageant mom Kerry Campbell in 2011, after she admitted to injecting her then-8-year-old daughter Britney with Botox.
According to ABC News, Campbell claimed that Britney herself had asked for the injections. In a televised interview with Good Morning America (via The Young Turks), young Britney stated, “I just, like, don’t think wrinkles are nice on little girls.”
As ABC News described, the elder Campbell said, “They [the other pageant moms] were just telling me about the lines on her face, and how, you know, a lot of the moms are giving their kids Botox, and it’s pretty much, like, a thing.” She went on, “I’m not the only one that does it. A lot of moms do it.”
That doesn’t make us feel any better…
