In a recent photo that was uploaded onto the State Departmentâ€™s Flickr stream you can see the Spanish Prime Ministerâ€™s daughters dressed from head to toe in gothic attire. Read more about it here.
It seems that every teenager goes through a rebellious phase, and even the children of world leaders prove to be no exception. The two daughters of Spanish Prime Prime Minister JosĂ© Luis RodrĂguez Zapatero, whom rarely appear in the media because of privacy concerns were photographed with their parents along with Barack and Michelle Obama covered from head to toe in black.
As fast as the picture could hit the web it caused a media uproar. In the photo you see both girls wearing black boots, what appears to be a black trench coat, and one of them is sporting an amulet around her neck and two black wristbands. This type of attire is typical of what you would see a person in the goth scene wearing.
Donâ€™t get me wrong. No one is saying that these teens are evil or anything. A matter of fact, they might be very pleasant kids. I donâ€™t know because Iâ€™ve never met them. And to be perfectly honest, I have no clue why this is such a big deal for people. They are young, and like many youngsters, just searching for a means of expression.
After the picture spread uncontrollably across the Internet the Spanish Prime Minister tried everything in his power to keep the photo under wraps, but it was too little too late. You can see it on almost every gossip, political, and news site on the web now, so he should just take it with a grain of salt.
