People are criticising Kim Kardashian after North stepped out with straightened hair

Kim KardashianCan you believe it’s been five years since Twitter freaked out over the name North West? Yes, that’s right, the coolest mini style icon since Suri Cruise has just turned five. But this fashionista-in-training isn’t just serving up fresh new styles, she’s also the centre of some serious Kardashian controversy surrounding her latest look. Seen stepping out the day before her fifth birthday with mum Kim Kardashian to visit Dylan’s Candy Bar in New York, North beamed in a hot pink Adidas windbreaker and matching shorts, white Yeezys, a unicorn bag and every 5-year-old’s favourite accessory, a candy necklace. But fans were quick to notice that something about the look was seriously different – the birthday girl’s signature curls had been straightened.

Her hair styled in a tight, sky-high-ponytail with a single braid down the centre part, North looked as proud as punch with her birthday hairstyle, but not everyone is in love with this new look. As photos have circulated the internet, many argue that Kim Kardashian has taken her daughter’s fashion-conscious look too far by straightening her natural curls.

Concerned about the message that Kim’s decision to straighten North’s hair sends out to her daughter, fans are worried that this could seriously affect North’s self-esteem and even lead to long-term negative self-image issues.

Taking to Twitter to slam the beauty mogul, many argue that Kim should be encouraging North to embrace her natural curls, not alter them with heat styling or extensions. Others argue that at just 5-years-old, North is too young to be making such major alterations to her hair and that she should be allowed to just be a kid, without so much attention being put on her hair.

But not everyone thinks that Kim was wrong to break out the straighteners. Fans of North’s new look think that she looks great and that having her hair straightened for her birthday is harmless fun. A little girl who seems to love getting dressed up and trying out new looks, fans of North’s Ariana Grande style ponytail argue that if the birthday girl wants to have fun with a new hair-do, then Kim shouldn’t have to defend her decision to straighten her daughter’s hair.


Until now Kim has always embraced North’s natural hair, ‘North is so proud of her curly hair’, the reality TV superstar revealed in an episode of KUWTK. Kim has even enlisted the help of Kim Kimble, owner of West Hollywood salon Kimble Hair Studio, to give her a masterclass on how to style North’s natural hair, then sharing photos of her gorgeous braids on Instagram.

What do you think of Kim’s decision to straighten her daughter’s hair? Harmless fun or harmful body alteration?

Pearl Modiadie shows she couldn’t be bothered

Pearl ModiadiePearl Modiadie is on top of her game right now. She is the host of the mega-hit talk show, Zaziwa and she also has her own radio show on Metro FM. With all her success happening at the moment the last thing she is worried about is irrelevant haters opinions. And she showed this on her Twitter this week. She recently clapped back at a troll who told her that she was gaining weight. Take a look here:

Seriously people, are we still stuck in a time where we find it appropriate to comment on people’s weight? What do you gain from it? Let’s move on from this and rather praise people for their hard work and success.

Take a glimpse into DJ Zinhle’s glam room

Humans are naturally curious creatures and when it comes to knowing what the inside of your favourite celeb’s homes our curiosity spikes sky high. So when one of South Africa’s most loved and successful DJ’s posted a picture of her new and improved glam room we just had to show you. DJ Zinhle posted a picture on Twitter captioning it, “My walk-in closet got an upgrade… I looooove roses. How amazing is this wallpaper?”


We couldn’t help but also fall in love with the gorgeous rose wallpaper. It looks like it comes straight from a dream home Pinterest board.
We weren’t the only fans, Cassper Nyovest tweeted her back expressing his love for her home. We’re assuming he’s seen a little more than just her glam room and we can’t help but be a little jealous. Ah, the life of an A-lister must be nice.

She posted a gorgeous selfie on her Twitter feed captioning it “work…” to which a Twitter troll tore her apart for wearing so much makeup. Take a look at the thread here.

Here is the selfie:

This was the response:

And then Lerato went in on him:

We are here for Lerato defending herself! It’s time men need to be put in their place for constantly criticizing women. SLAY KWEEN!

That’ll be a no from Bonang!

L’Ormarins Queen’s PlateIt comes as no surprise when we say that Bonang Matheba has worked her ass off and is one of the most influential people in the entertainment industry. After her graceful performance as the host of the Miss South Africa pageant, she is high in demand with many people wanting to interview her and ride the wave of her success. The most recent and public case would be Tumi Morake who took to Twitter to ask Queen B to make an appearance on her show, WTF Tumi. To which Bonang responded with a thinking face emoji, not giving Tumi much hope.


Following this tweet, a spark was set off with all of Bonangs fans urging her to stay away from the show. One tweep warned Queen B that the show had been known for making her looking like a joke and making fun of her on a regular basis.

It was just a straight up no from others.

And thanks to all of the negative responses Bonang kindly declined and said she has to stick with her followers.


Will we ever see the two together in the same room? Probably not, but at least Bonang knows her fans have her back. Cute.
