11-Year-Old Loves Fake Tans, False Nails

Sasha Bennington wore her first set of false eyelashes at 8 and her beauty treatments cost $500 a month. A sick abuse of an 11-year-old? "No," insists Sasha's mother, "I just want her to be famous."

Sasha Bennington

Sasha Bennington is just 11 but her mother Jayne loves the way she looks.

Jayne talks breezily about how Sasha had her first set of false nails glued on at 8, and the little girl now enjoys the sort of rigorous beauty regime -- hair extensions, fake tans, pedicures -- that was once the preserve of porn stars and Dolly Parton, not school children from England.

Still, times have changed. "All the kids are at it now," insists Jayne. "We spend about $500 a month on beauty treatments for her."

"I don't understand why people get so upset about it. None of it is permanent. Tans wash off. Hair extensions come out. Why all the fuss?'

Her daughter wants to be like Jordan of "Katie & Peter" fame, and Jayne sees nothing wrong with this.

"Of course. Jordan is her idol and I fully support her in that. She's a great role model, this really down-to-earth woman who has made a big success of her life. She's a better role model than Britney Spears -- any day.

"And so what if she poses in a bikini? There are plenty of 11-year-old girls on beaches in bikinis. If people have a problem with it, I'd say it is their problem, not mine.

"Besides, as I keep saying, this is what Sasha wants."

Ask Sasha how she sees herself and she replies: "Blonde, pretty, dumb - I don't need brains." Her mum laughs her head off at this, proud that the child is so like her.

What do you think of this mom??

This is beyond sick. Not for nothing, how does an 8 year old girl know about fake tans, fake hair, fake nails, etc. unless her mother told her “baby, you need this.” The money that I spend at salons for my hair over the course of the year may be over $500. How many jobs does this girl’s parents work to support such an expenditure?

There is something wrong with a woman that wants to make her child sexually appealing and look the way that a woman would look.

I don’t see anything wrong with this i wear false nails and dye my hair. It’s all just fun. Like she said none of it is permanant. I’m 12 and I think that moddeling and beauty pagents are so much fun.
