Four-year-old contestant, Maddy Jackson, surprised the judges and audience of the U.S. reality show Toddlers and Tiaras as this girl performed live on stage with fake boobs and butt. It was really shocking to look at a little blond trying to mimic the appearance of a woman in her late 20s.
However, Maddy’s mother Lindsay had a very different idea. “To some people, it's over the top, to us it's just what happens... It's just normal. When she wears the fake boobs and the fake butt, it's just like extra bonus.” she told presenter Savannah Guthrie. “It's really funny when she comes out on stage and everyone thinks it's hysterical.”

Many people seemed to not agree with Lindsay’s explanation. Maddy's stylist, Michael Booth, even thought that the attire is a step to far. “I wasn’t a big fan of the outfit with the boobs in it. She’s very young, but hopefully the judges will perceive it in good taste.” she said. Some young contestants felt amazing when they saw Lindsay rearranging Maddy’s fake breasts.

Unlike positive ideas of mom Lindsay, the online community has strongly criticized Maddy’s outfit and the sexualization of girls in the media.
“We don't want kids to grow up too fast,” Shari Miles-Cohen, senior director of women's programs for the American Psychological Association, said. “We want them to be able to develop physically, emotionally, psychologically and socially at appropriate rates for their age.”
