Paris Jackson Plays Up Her Leg Hair on Instagram – TeenVogue.com
Last night, Paris Jackson wowed us on the VMAs 2017 red carpet in teal liner, soft waves, and a gorgeous Dior ensemble. But, she may have had her best beauty moment even before she arrived at the awards show, when she shared a video of her leg hair with fans. In the clip, Paris zoomed in on her body hair while her friend pet her leg. She alternated between laughing and faux screaming in the background — and while the video has no other verbal message, it’s clear that Paris embraced her leg hair in the best way.
The star has been vocal about body positivity in the past, openly sharing how she feels about acne, cellulite, and her armpit hair in the past. “People are really mad,” she previously said, after social media attempted to shame her for having armpit hair. “I wish I could post some of these responses. You can just tell how angry and infuriated these people are… I love hair, and sweat, and BO. I f****** love it, I think it’s great. Some people think that it’s like super disgusting, especially on girls, but every human body does it. It’s natural. Get over it.”
As Paris says, it’s high time we stop stigmatizing body hair and policing women’s appearances. Whether or not you choose to groom or remove your body hair is entirely up to you and no one has the right to attempt to shame you for that. So, if you want to grow out your leg hair, grow it out! And maybe film your friends petting it, too, because as Paris proves, it makes for a great Instagram.
