First and foremost John David Washington did not use his fathers credentials in the entertainment world. He made a career switch from NFL player to actor, with most people unaware that he was Denzel Washington’s kid. I found out a year ago, after Googling him. I wanted to find out who the fuck this top tier actor was. Denzel did not parade his kids around in the spotlight from birth, giving his son a chance to make a name for himself, on his own terms unlike others.
Lily Rose Depp, saying she’s not a nepo-baby is delusional. How dare you compare what you do to a doctors work? Girl stop. It shows the bubble you’re in. If a person can’t pass the test and requirements to be in the medical field, they aren’t going to be a doctor. Meanwhile if you’re a shitty actress you still get gigs, get agents, don’t have to do a fraction of the work as someone who doesn’t have famous parents (like be SAG to be seen at auditions, to be eligible for SAG, to be seen at all, nor do sexual favors or suffer abuse at the hands of those in power). We, the public, are then forced to suffer through your mediocrity and unearned accolades. Your privilege is showing, your response is a nepo baby reaction. You’re not performing life or death surgeries, the audacity. Not to say Lily is a bad actress, but she hasn’t captivated me with her work, nor does her addition to a cast make me want to watch. You’re a nepo-baby own it. You think people just start off in film, on magazine covers? Nope. You got to because of Johnny Depp. Also we all knew you and your brother Jack from jump. Stop whining and do something that removes you from your fathers shadow. You sound like an out of touch, spoiled brat. You think other people would say this to you without fear of retribution due to your daddy? I’m a goddess. You’re welcome.
Zoe Kravitz made a name for herself, but everyone knew who she was. Definitely wouldn’t have had the opportunities if we didn’t. Unlike Mick Jaggers mediocre kids, who never do anything without their parents being mentioned, or their enslaved moms forcing them on us. Georgia is a terrible model, with one facial expression up her sleeve. Then you try to force Lucas Jagger on us, who isn’t as interesting or attractive as his parents. I’ll pass.
Speaking of models, that’s where nepo babies are the most horrific. Lila Moss, Leni Klum, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Kendall Jenner are all abhorrent. Just abhorrent (read: Negligence Is The New Black). I left Gigi out of this article, because she was pregnant and I didn’t feel like bringing up the role drug use played on her aged skin. Plus she makes faces. Now if Kaia Gerber and Lourdes switched up their stoic faces to match the body they serve in poses (the former to match her mother’s iconic career), they’d be golden.
Calling out nepo-babies is necessary. The ones who don’t have the talent are filled with the most ego. I’m sorry take several seats, not everyone is Stella McCartney. I forget Paul McCartney is her dad, her work stands out on its own. As parents of these creatures, you should be ashamed. The legacy didn’t continue, because you think they’re magic just because you are. Had you told them the hard truth, pushed them, we wouldn’t have to suffer through their bottom tier careers and big heads. Do better. My kids will never embarrass me this way, I assure you. They finna put in work, the truth hurts, but it makes you better. Who is your least favorite nepo baby? Who carries their family’s legacy properly? Via: Fashion Image Of Alan
