Video: Adorable Little Girl Tells Pippa Middleton She Hates Princesses

Ever have a faux pas with someone where you’re like “I hate skateboarders” and they’re all like, “my brother happens to be a pro skateboarder, thanks much, asshole”? Well, a little girl just did that to Pippa Middleton and did not give one fuck.

While hosting a children’s Halloween party to promote her new book Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends the famed party planner/celebrity sibling/butt haver met an adorable six-year-old girl whom one might call a “tomboy,” if it were the 1950s and girls were still expected to only like girl things. “I bet when you’re ten, you’ll love pink and you’ll love princesses,” she challenged the girl, who shot back with “I hate princesses. I like vampires.” At which Pippa became visibly amused, as one should.

This video is priceless not only for the faux pas, but to hear tiny English children saying “I like vampi-yahs” in their cute little English accents over and over. I think I’m going to loop that and play it at my Halloween party this year.

    I bet Pippa wanted to say “Meee too, little girl. High five!”

    I know this is a lighthearted article and maybe my comment would be too serious..but I really don’t like this concept where girls who are tomboys and like boyish things and hate all girlish things are held up as if they’re admirable and “stronger” than girlish girls.

    Feminism is about your choice. The fact that you’re a typical female who likes girly girly stuff shouldn’t make people look down on you. And the fact that you’re a tomboyish girl, shouldn’t make people look up to you MERELY for that.

      Preach it! There is no one right way to be a female and just because this little girl hates princesses doesn’t make her a hero.

      Yes! I hate this so much. There is so much praise for the tomboy yet so much snootyness toward any girl with a semblance of girlishness. As if that is not dressing to someone else is standards. So because they are dressing to feminist standards/how someone else wants you to, its okay? It’s okay for a group to malign one’s girlish style because they are feminist women criticizing them?
      I find it almost hypocritical when the same people that criticize girlyness, pink and princesses are the ones that come out in defense of the boy that wants to wear a pink princess costume. However, if a girl wants to wear one she sucks.

      I commented on this fact on another article too. A lot of people praise movies like “Brave” for showing “real” girls with courage. But I don’t know…I disagree very strongly with that. The whole feminist movement was about giving women choices. By condemning girly girls like Cinderella, and praising boyish girls like Merida or Mulan, are we not enforcing the culture that typically male characteristics are to be preferred and typically female characteristics are to be looked down upon as weak and silly, and thus actually ENFORCING the “male is superior” attitude?
