Redheaded Celebrities: Daywalkers v. Gingers

As we all know from South Park’s “Ginger Kids” episode, there are two distinctive types of redheads: daywalkers and straight-up gingers. Daywalkers of course, are the creeps de la creme

Let’s take a look at some celebrity redheads and decide for ourselves whether they’re daywalker or ginger:

Nicole Kidman: I’ve written about her before. Despite lack of freckles, she’s a porcelain ginger. She was my idol growing up after I read an article about how she was shy as a teenager and stuck to the theatre in an isolated way. I can’t help but feel I relate to her; her roles always show how sensitive and really, understated, she is, and I can’t help but feeling a kinship.

Rihanna: Definite daywalker! Ha, alliteration. Well the thing about Rihanna is, she’s effin fierce. I can’t fault her for dying her hair red, unlike most the other fakers. Her hair is at least quite obviously dyed. And she said it helped her get over her breakup with Chris Brown. Red hair fights fire with fire!

Lindsay, Lindsay, Linsday: The original Lindsanity. A star as a redhead, a horror as a blonde. Now that it’s back to red, it’s back to flamin, methinks. Perfect example of a GINGER. With freckles like stars.

Now that I’m done with that, check out what How to be a Redhead has to say about these three. Certainly, something more sensible.

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
