The first daughter of the USA claims she once had blue hair and listened to Nirvana.
Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former The Apprentice host Donald Trump, caused an inadvertent stir on social media last night (October 17th) as word reached us that the President's daughter once had, wait for it, a "punk phase".
Yeah, we don't really know what to think either!
According to an extract from her mother's new book 'Raising Trump', Ivanka claims she once sported some Good Dye Young-esque blue hair and was a big Nirvana fan, even crying when Kurt Cobain died:
Ivanka is trying to take away our heritage!! OUTRAGE!!! Grunge is not Punk. https://t.co/SQDDFOrbuu pic.twitter.com/SHtE1pYom3— Dusty (@DustinGiebel) October 17, 2017
I mean, Nirvana weren't punk, they were grunge, but still...
Anyway, funnily enough, many people on Twitter couldn't quite picture the typically straight-laced Ivanka listening to 'Lithium' and so 'Punk Ivanka' instantly became a meme we can all believe in.

Even Pete Wentz himself got involved:

Never let those pesky anti capitalist ideologies get in the way of your punk phase pic.twitter.com/a4aN3fnagn— DCD2 (@DCD2records) October 17, 2017
So, basically if you see Ivanka hanging out at Warped Tour next summer, now you will (sort of) know why.
