Enchanted, I’m sure.

I think this is AWSOME!!! So very Wednsday Adams of 2014! They spent a great deal of time on the face paint and the costume appears to be custom made. Kuddos to all the hard work! It really paid off for this great shot.
I have no idea what ICP is (I gather that it is the name of a singer or a band), but I do know that this picture is hilarious, especially with the girl holding a doll (missing its underpants) with the same crazy makeup.
Why all the hate? I happen to know this little girl personally. Her grandma is a friend of mine.
The little girl doesn’t know the meaning behind it, she thought it looked cool! That’s all there is to it!
Please keep your mean comments to yourself! Rick on little lady!
Has anyone entertained the possibility that Mom could be the fan? Perhaps the little girl likes scary/unconventional things. ICP’s lyrics are definitely not family friendly, but their message of friendship, loyalty, acceptance, brotherhood, and “I’m not the only one like this,” is.
As for bashing parents who “force” their interests on their kids, that’s a little ridiculous. The journey to finding yourself has to start somewhere, so why not be introduced to something by someone who loves it? You may not like it as much as they, but you learned that it was ok to love your interests, and that people like different things.
Personally, I think all music, especially what airs on the radio, should be approved by the parents. ICP is in your face with kid-unfriendly content, but I’m amazed at how much sex, alcohol abuse, and selfishness is rampant in popular music. It takes all kinds, and no band should be judged based on a few songs.
Listen to whatever makes you happy, and take the theatrics with a grain of salt. It’s just entertainment, after all.
I see a lot of people over reacting.
So true story. I know the mother of Shaggy 2 Dope’s baby (ironically she’s actually a very smart and accomplished woman w/a masters degree. I guess we all have skeletons). I was DYING when I saw this! Made me think of them right away!! Fortunately his kid has not developed his taste for crappy music and has outstanding taste for an 11yr old. Also, I’m pretty certain she’s never “dressed like daddy” or would. Though she looks EXACTLY like him, so it’s not hard to tell.
that doll has no pants on.
Maybe it was just last year’s Halloween picture. It could be a one time only picture for a scrapbook.

My kids (8,6,3) want to like everything my husband and I like so they can spend time with us and get more attention (not that they don’t get either if they don’t like the same things as us). Granted we like superheros, Doctor Who, Harry Potter and the like, which are kid friendly endeavors, but maybe this little girl is just trying to be like her parents. I am sure once she gets a little older, she will like her own things and think her parents and their interests are absolutely LAME
Bet she wins Miss Congeniality at the kiddie beauty pageants.
I’m probably going to get flamed for this, if it even gets posted. I don’t care if you need to express your “individuality”, but don’t force it on your child. A little 7-ish year old girl in Violent J’s make-up isn’t cute and these “parents” are just trying to look cool or whatever to their ICP “family”, as I doubt she on her own free will said, “I wanna dress up as a Violent J Princess!”. I’ve heard a lot of ICP (and I’ll be honest, I laughed in humor and semi-thought it was catchy at the time). However, I have NO clue why a child would be exposed to their lyrics/imagery/lifestyle and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t give me “but ICP fans are a FAMILY” garbage. And, for the record, I’m 34, so I was late-teen/20s in northwest Ohio, no less, when ICP was gaining their popularity, so I’m not “old” and “out of touch” on the topic.
Sorry for the rant. I just think this is completely irresponsible and an example of one of the reasons of what’s wrong with our country and the direction it’s headed today.
I agree with you. I have two kids. I like all kinds of things that they know nothing about. ICP is not suitable for kids. She looks like a beautiful little girl, who would have been perfectly happy to dress up like Snow White. Not to mention that some of the lyrics I’ve heard make me really worry about her safety.
So if the kid were ugly you’d be totally ok with this?
I don’t see how physical attractiveness factors into this anywhere.
This is the reason you don’t get invited to parties Lucy, ‘coz you’re a boring killjoy that bring everyone down…
Just throwing this out there. Maybe her dad is a huge juggalo and he paints his face for shows and she sees how much enjoyment this brings him and wants to paint her face too to show him she loves what he does. I used to eagerly wake up early and fake shave my face when my dad was shaving his own face before he left for work in the morning, just felt good to have some daddy daughter attention. I find this absolutlely lovely. AND since many many ICP fans are creative people, just maybe her mom works at this photography studio and wanted to spend some daughter fun time with her and bring her in for a photo shoot. There is NOTHING here that is wrong. All I see is good clean fun family time, which really, more people need to be having these days! *MCL*
Lighten up, Francis.
Sorry to break it to you, but parents always “force” their own interests on their children, you can’t tell me your parents never made you do anything that you weren’t personally interested in and never introduced to anything that you wouldn’t have discover on your own. People just react to it as though it’s some sort of brainwashing when the interest in question isn’t considered normal.
My guess is that as this girl gets older she will, like all children, ether maintain this interest that her parents have “forced” on her, or decide that she doesn’t actually have an interest in it and just remember it as some lame thing that her dad made her do.
My mother forced me and my sister to attend Liberace concerts with her. Thankfully I never felt compelled to wear fur-lined rhinestone capes.
I WAS compelled and it took years of therapy to “fix” me.
Liberace conversion therapy does not work! You’re fooling yourself if you really think you no longer want to wear fur-lined rhinestone capes – the “compulsion” will always be there. Accept yourself and ignore those who do not understand.
My parents listened to “Hot August Nights” throughout my childhood…now, nearly 30 years later, I know all the lyrics, know every song by heart. I’m not saying I like it, but…it is a nice memory for me to sing and dance wildly to “Cherry, Cherry” and my friends think there’s something clearly wrong with me…and I’m okay with that. F***ing Neil Diamond. 😉
OMG….Neil was FORCED on me too….my whole life…I am 45 and my dad is 83 and HE STILL forces it on me in the car, at his house….we sing to it, together…. My 13 year old daughter thinks we’re nuts!!
I will give ICP credit – they are marketing GENIUSES. Keep giving ’em your cash to be apart of the family.
Yup, the videos and pictures some of my acquaintances bring back from Gathering showcase wonderful, functioning members of society. And Juggalo Julz should be named mother of the year. The only reason why ICP spoke out so much against that is because it was a PR nightmare. They wouldn’t have given a crap if they had the choice. Refer to my first sentence.
And it is awkward
OOOWWWWWW!She ‘s so cute……
We see here the rare offspring of the juggalo… The camera man has to move slowly so it doesn’t get spooked. If we watch closely we may see its drink from the Faygo river.
ROFLMAO!!!! Mandy, that’s fantastic… Oh my geez, you totally made my day…
