Kim Kardashian Has Every Right to Pierce 12-Month-Old North West’s Ears (PHOTO)

Kim KardashianThere's no doubt about the fact that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's 1-year-old baby North West is adorable. There's also no question that her parents are seriously into bling -- have you seen Kim's ring? So it was only a matter of time before they started adding some sparkle to the little one.

Kim stepped out in New York City this week with a newly pierced Nori, who apparently got diamond stud earrings for her first birthday. Internet backlash ensued, because of course. After all, piercing a baby's ears is almost as controversial as choosing not to breastfeed these days.


Some people thought piercing North's ears was "cruel and tacky," and there was a whole lot of plain old, "I can't believe that did!" going around. Take a look at this kid's new baubles and see what you think.

OK. There are a lot of things to criticize Kim Kardashian and Kanye West about. Perhaps a certain rap about how he wants to dip her ass in gold or the gold toilet shrine that were supposedly at their wedding (I can't make this stuff up).

But piercing North's ears? Give them a break. Lots of babies get their ears pierced. Heck, both of my daughters had theirs pierced as babies, but I didn't dare wait as long as a year -- I didn't want them to be able to tug on them and irritate their delicate little lobes while they healed. Of course, my babies didn't exactly have diamond studs, but let's remember that this is Kim and Kanye's baby.

Do you think North's earrings are cute or tacky?
