Suri's Burn Book: Attention Getter
share this story
It's a big world out there, with plenty of things clamouring for our attention. But there are the things we keep returning to, the ones we can't get enough of. Each week, Attention Getter shows you what's charming the Huffington Post Canada Living team and what we think will charm you too.
Enter Suri's World
In a world where every other person (alright, 5 per cent of people) puts their child on Facebook and Hollywood's baby pictures fetch upwards of seven digits, some backlash is inevitable.
We're thankful it's come in the form of Suri's Burn Book, a brilliant Tumblr account written from the perspective of Suri Cruise, complete with all the inside jokes and less than-thinly veiled insults one could hope for from this queen of the toddler set. Making the rounds since July and currently searched more than ever, Suri's Burn Book numerous fans include Time, Jezebel, and of course, HuffPost. The author of the page remains a mystery, but 'Suri's' sense of humour and knowledge of the minutiae of celeb lives is unsurpassed.
Some Choice Excerpts
The tights are too big, the sleeves are unflattering, and if she's trying to channel Natalie Portman here, let's just be honest -- in the celebrity child realm, I am the White Swan and the Black Swan.
I'm onto you, Honor Warren. I think lately she's been calculating photo-ops to make herself appear aggressively fearless in the press. I mean, taking out a pinata at the ankles while wearing fashionable mid-calf boots? This girl is clearly challenging me.
Why We Love It
Is it mean? Oh yes. Is it preying on innocent kids whose parents just happen to be famous? You betcha. But it's also speaking to that huge portion of the population that is simultaneously drawn to and disdainful of celebrity culture, taking all of that pop culture knowledge that clogs up our brains and turning into a daily laugh that just happens to dole out some handy fashion tips along the way.
