Mama Ivana Trump has a new memoir, Raising Trump, out now – all about raising those precious Trump kids.
In one chapter, First Daughter Ivanka describes her “punk phase” in the early ’90s, which apparently included listening to Nirvana, wearing flannel shirts and ripped cords, and a super-shocking decision to dye her hair blue. GASP.
During my punk phase in the nineties, I was really into Nirvana. My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts. One day after school, I dyed my hair blue. Mom wasn’t a fan of this decision. She took one look at me and immediately went out to the nearest drugstore to buy a $10 box of Nice’n Easy. That night, she forced me to dye my hair back to blond. The color she picked out was actually three shades lighter than my natural color… and I have never looked back!
The Cut wonders if it’s actually possible to get out blue hair dye with drugstore products? “We have a hunch there’s a part missing in this story about an expensive salon dye job. But that would sound so very un-relatable.”
Ivanka then goes on a bit more about her love for Kurt Cobain:
It wasn’t too long after this that Kurt Cobain, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist for Nirvana, committed suicide. It was a shock and I was distraught. Mom had no idea who Kurt Cobain was, and she sympathized only so much. After twenty-four hours of my crying inconsolably in my room, alone—major melodrama—Mom had to pull me out of there to go down to dinner.
OH IVANKA! YOU’RE SUCH A REGULAR GIRL!
