Mom and dad were concerned by Jasmine, both about her new look and her territoriality. But young girls need to express their inner boy band.
In Kindergarten, half the girls in Jasmine’s class wore their favorite princess costumes to school. Not Jasmine. Even if she, like, owned the rights to Princess Jasmine by unassailable playground logic. No, that was her Donnie Walhberg phase, she really went for the edgy, dangerous look back then. Over time, she softened a bit on Donnie, and moved on to other, more gently benign singers. But she still wore her leather jacket, well into the fourth grade.
Frankly, I’m a little surprised that her parents bothered to laminate this heartthrob. Really, they only last so long, I wouldn’t go investing in an acid-free mounting board, if you catch my meaning.
Maybe I’m reading this wrong. Maybe in some cultures, it’s considered appropriate to mount a mid-adolescent teen idol to a little girl’s room, to scare away the fairies. I’m not sure that actually works, Justin Beiber’s obviously some sort of twisted changeling made from an enchanted stick. So, scratch that theory.
