Leave Gabby’s hair ALONE! In Defense of Gabby Douglas’ Hair In particular wacky, silly, doesn’t make it kind of sense, but I can unfortunately see why women would say this (as a fellow member of this ethnic race), yet that doesn’t make it any better, piece of criticism; gravity defying, 16 year old, Olympian Gabby Douglas, is being attacked for not getting her “hair did”. If not meeting a strangers misconstrued personal view of hair beauty could insure me this type American VICTORY, then I’d never do my hair again! haha! (and by “doing it” I mean routinely perming it). But hey Ms. Douglas is taking in it stride, and not to heart. Just another reason to be proud of this champion.
(To the tune of Tina Turner’s hit What’s Love Got to Do With It)
You must understand
That the way a perm works
Makes ones sweat react
That it`s only for show
Of changing ones hair
Skewed beauty attack
Not so logical
It’s okay to ignore
Talent means more that
What’s hair got to do with it, got to do with it?
What’s hair, but something on your head?
What’s hair got to do with it,got to do with it?
Who needs a perm when you’ve got a gold medal?!
