Attention Posers: Ivanka Trump had a ‘Punk Phase’


Written by Don't Panic

In a new biography written by her mum Ivana, first daughter Ivanka Trump makes an attempt at trying to appear relatable by revealing that she once had a ‘punk phase’ in the nineties.


That’s right, while all you posers were listening to entry level garbage like Green Day, Ivanka was huffing glue in a squat and spray-painting Crass stencils onto a stolen denim jacket.

Well, not quite. In the book, Ivanka says she was ‘really into Nirvana’ during this rebellious phase and she even went so far as to dye her hair blue! Maybe she was trying out being a democrat! Either way The Donald’s first wife was not obviously happy with their prize daughter showing any form of individuality.

‘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’ (which is hard to believe given they literally lived in a GOLDEN TOWER!), before making Ivanka re-dye it to her natural blond.


Even so, this did nothing to temper her passion for the punk lifestyle. Ivanka even says she cried for 24 hours when Kurt Cobain committed suicide: ‘It was a shock and I was distraught. Mom had no idea who Kurt Cobain was, and she sympathised only so much,’ Trump writes.

‘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.’

Kurt once said ‘The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.’ and with Ivanka being the First Daughter to Donald Trump it doesn’t look like she took any of Cobain’s words to heart, or head.

Let's hope that her and her Dad's time in the whitehouse is also just a phase...
