Viola Davis’ Daughter Genesis Dressed as Her for Halloween

Avatar • Nov 1, 2015

This is G‑parent status right here… When your little one skips over the Elsa’s and Minnie Mouse’s and Princess Tiana’s to dress up as you. Viola Davis took to Facebook yesterday to share that her daughter, Genesis, requested to dress up as her for Halloween. The 4‑year-old beauty channeled her mother’s iconic Emmy win for best actress in a drama series, complete with a mini-Emmy. Davis captioned the photo;

So.….the Elsa costume? Didn’t work for her. The Pirate? A no go. So she finally said,” I just want to be YOU mommy”! So… uhh.….this is ME.

When you are your daughter’s most influential icon, you know you’ve made an impact. Amazing. I might try that next year myself. 🙂

This is how it’s suppose to be. A few months back. I heard middle school students chatting about who were their role models etc. One asked the other isn’t Beyonce queen? And the little girl said, “Beyonce is talented but I don’t know her personally to say she is my role model. My mom is my hero and my role model, I look up to her.” Her friends had the look of shock all over their faces trying to convince her that Beyonce is life. Smh. Rarely do I hear teens speak this way. Like many adults, they’re normally obsessed… Read more »

Beyonce’s awesome (I’ve actually met her in person and can attest that she’s very nice!!)
But my mom? Mom will always reign supreme.

I am not denying that and quite frankly it isn’t my concern whether or not beyonce is nice. They could have been talking about anyone else. The point is that people should not idolize other people and or things. That little girl was very smart. While all her friends were star struck, wishing they had what Beyonce had or wishing to look and be her, this little girl gave Beyonce credit for her talents and kept it moving. If more children and adults had that mind set, then a lot more people would be more focused on bettering themselves, embracing… Read more »

.…no one said it was your concern? Also, I’m agreeing with you so I’m very confused as to why you’re jumping down my throat as though I’ve severely offended you with my comment. At the end of the day, what’s important is recognizing your own worth and utilizing the knowledge given by great people who came before (ie: relatives, teachers, other impactful adults), but to sit here and look down your nose at little girls who want to be Beyonce is condescending and honestly unrealistic. They’re kids. Beyonce’s popular and successful and doing something with her life. They want to… Read more »

Wow.. OK. I’m a little confused as to why you thought I was jumping down your throat? That was not my intent. And why do you think I was offended? You said nothing that was offensive. Looking down on little girls that look up to celebrities? I may not like it but why would I look down on innocent children when most of the times, they only mimic what they see? I’m sorry that you took my response the way that you did. I just simply replied to your post and wanted to stress that whether or not the celebrity… Read more »

Miscommunication is the bane of the internet. I apologize for going off on you. Now that you’ve clarified what you meant, I feel really silly getting all up in arms. That said, I completely agree with you. I suppose I’m just sick of the continuing conversation that blame celebrities are “ruining our community and our children” when really? That’s on us. All on us. I’m just really tired of people taking the hide out of celebrities for their own screw ups. I always get jumpy when people start talking like that. While we sit here and gripe about the impact that this… Read more »

Understood. Miscommunication is definitely a frequent thing of the internet and in general. It happens to us all 😀 And I totally agree with everything you’ve stated. Excellent points. It all starts at the home as well as within our communities. Leading by example is KEY! I too am tired of the blame game where celebrities or people in the media in general are blamed for any and everything. It is really a sad thing to see when people choose to point the finger at celebrities and everyone else but themselves when it comes to the influences on children. But I also… Read more »
