Laila Ali Calls North West a Stupid Name


Laila Ali isn't a fan of the crazy baby name trend and calls out Kanye West for naming his daughter North...

Laila tells Hip Hollywood,
“…A lot of people do things because it’s a fad and they want to get some attention.. but this is your child…if it’s crazy but cool and nice and it makes sense, that’s one thing, but North and South and Leaf and Water Drop? Come on now, I don’t care who you are that’s just stupi, period. “

People name their children what they want too! What's stupid to others may not be stupid to the one who chose it......get over it,,,Dang

It's not Laila's concern, if they want to name their kid Dookie, it's their choice. Lately its like Laila is just talking just to talk. I used to like her, but she sounds stupid.

Not your place to comment on other people's children. You should know that as a mother. If you must say something just say its not for you. IMO

Such a shame she didn't inherit her father's beauty

Yeah ok, it's the parent's choice and all that, but is she lying??? North is a direction. Not a fucking name!!! It's stupid...just like she said. She can have an opinion on that dumb shit just like you can have one on what she said about it.

North is a stupid name. Go fuck yourself if you don't like that she said it!!!!

Well it ain't like North's mammy or pappy gonna run up on Miss Ali and pop shit. Left hook. Right hook. Uppercut! KAPOW.

Awww Laila did you miss Interviewing 101 why even make a comment on the name let alone a real one about how you feel...

IDK about this one I think the name is stupid but I wouldn't be so blatant like she is being...

Laila Ali has a deep voice.

She's right! If Kanye stepped to her, she might just give him a left jab and/or a right hook as a parting gift.

She isnt lying at all tht is a stupid ass name give the baby a name they can live up to she gotta grow up with tht dum ass name not then

@4:05
Stop lying! It's not spelled Knorth with a damn K. That would be even stupider than the original spelling. And I agree with everyone who said Laila has the right to stick by her opinion. She only said what everyone else has been thinking, but is too scared to say. But, hey, it's Laila Ali - who gon' check her, Boo?

And she most definitely inherited her dad's beauty.

North West, Blu Ivy, Picnic Basket, all of it sounds simple as hell. Laila only said what some of these other PUNK BITCHES were to scared to say. I tell you one thing I bet any amount of money Keisha West and Skim Cumdashsin won't walk up on her and say a damn thing about her comment. Cause Keisha knows that he don't want it with Mrs. Ali.

I died when she said "Water drop" LMAO

Tippie Toes said...

It opens Laila up for folks to be critical of her children - you treat others the way you want to be treated

I agree w/Lalia and what's even more stupid is trying to have a heterosexual relationship with a gay man and deciding to have children with him.

Anonymous said...

They probably wanted to go with "Knorth" but somebody from that Klan said they didn't want to be referenced as "KKK" so they went with "North"

Well it isn't her place.....but obviously someone needs to tell those two dumbasses the truth because NO ONE else around them is doing it.

Anonymous said...

Yall faking like crazy talking about its not her place...she has a right to voice her opinion. I think the name is crazy too but her parents being who they are may help her in the long run but to those everday ppl combining mom and dads name (Darrylisha) those are the ones who are going to find it hard for someone to take them seriously viewing thir resume. *to the bottom of the pile you go*. I have seen a few Keisha's (resume) get thrown out so imagaine what you dont see.

Common sense must be a threat to some of you because you obviously have none. So its not okay for a celebrity to voice their opinion but its okay for you to sit anonymously behind a computer and give your opinion. Wow, you guys are really intelligent.

If someone talked about her 2 kids, she would be ready to kick azz. SHOULD BE ASHAME OF HERSELF!!!!!!

We are developing into a country of people who can't hear any kind of truth and think that we can pervert a truth or concept if we don't like it or want to hear it. So if you can't receive guidance on any terms how do you know if your actions are right or wrong or if it causing someone else discomfort? You can't just reject everything that does agree with you, we all still need a level of standards to judge things and situations by. Then when your life is not reflecting good results or opportunities we get mad and blame others when the truth is that we are all reaping what we have sown. Your actions and choices were seeds being planted in the grown of life and all plants have a harvest the results or outcome of your decisions.

North West, Blue Ivy, Apple, Moses, Pilot Inspektor..etc. They are ALL stupid names. When you are rich you think its okay..

Why are some of you saying Laila aimed her opinion at the baby? She didn't. She voiced her opinion at the PARENTS who name their children stupid names.

@4:15 Ann Wolfe waited YEARS to check Laila but she dodged her like a punk.

People are so damn quick to cape for these celebrities, that when anyone else in the public eye says what a majority of the general public thinks/feels/has also said, muhfuckas lose their minds.

PREACH @5:27. This society is turning into a bunch of childish bitchy assholes who don't want to hear any kind of truth. Just ready to accept any kind of bullshit as long as it makes *them* feel good.

Should've named her SXS (south by south) West!!

Anonymous said...

unusual? yes. stupid? no.

remember, every name that's ever been given to a baby was made up by someone.

i believe most names probably sounded strange the first time they'd ever been given.

the name "george" seems pretty normal, but i bet it sounded crazy to people that very first time.

She's a real*itch...

When you name your children after directions you just might get criticized. Laila was criticizing parents that give out stupid names for attention.

Anonymous said...

@5:02 OMG thank you! I can't with these simple ass ppl who sit on this blog doing the same thing she just did on a daily basis! She stated her opinion she's allowed to express it ...she wasn't dissing the child just their dumb ass basic minded parents who have that poor child that ridculous name!
@ 5:27 PREACH!! *waves church towel*

All yall talkum bout it's not her business.. she was ASKED what she thought and responded. I'm sure she doesn't really give a fuck but she's not afraid to give her opinion when asked. Who gone check her boo? Yall ain't and surely can't so ... Get over it. Love it. Someone not afraid to give their real opinion when ASKED. And I KNOW she ain't gonna take it back. So, I ask again WHO gone check her? LOL

1. Seems like 3:56 PM is either a victim of a stupid name or the giver of one.
Don't nobody give a damn about "what's stupid to one may not be stupid to another" DUH, everybody knows that dumb excuse and if the people who are supporting it are stupid then what's the value in their support. Some made up names are stupid, point blank and the period. In fact, a lot of cool, temporarily trendy things are stupid, there's a lot of stupid things in the creative world that become fads once their stupidity is recognized by majority of the masses.

2. Man please @ 6:54PM. Ain't nobody trying to dig back 1000 years and analyze the creation of names and the feelings behind those creations. If it sounds stupid right now, today in the present then it's going to be called stupid based off what's sane now, today the present. And every name that's been given to a baby stopped being made up at some point and a traditional naming system eventually developed. That's why there's common names in all cultures, 12 strangers in the same school with the same name. North West is a stupid name and if they want a unique name why pick locations off a map, that's stupid and uncalled for. If the baby was born in a time where North and West wasn't attached to anything in particular and maps and GPS systems wasn't using the word then hey, use those words for the name, but if the words are attached to something like an appliance, car, clothes or maps then why use it for a baby name? How is that even creative if the word (s) are already in familiar use with no human quality to them.

Anonymous said...

@ 3:58 - that's what she said. She doesn't like all the crazy names and elaborated. She is giving an interview. Not a one or two word interview. How boring is that? Why she gotta be scared to say what she think? They're brave enough to name their child North, they should expect people to have an opinion and not have to bite their damned lip about it. Who the FUCK are THEY that she has to bite her lip when she was asked what she thought? Go somewhere with that bullshit. Ain't nobody gotta bow down to them. And it IS a stupid ass name. North West. Stupid. Just stupid. Poor child.

You're not lying. Lalia didn't want to fight Ann Wolfe she dodged her. Ann said she would knock Lalia out.

Pow! Pow! Pow! Shots fired! Yeah! She said that!I agree... That child has been set up for failure! It is a stupid name and other small children will be sure to let the little girl know! Trust and believe children CAN be cruel!

Hey Monique! She's not talking about the child. She's talking about the dumb ass parents and the fucked up name they gave the child. Man I tell ya... reading comprehension is a BIOTCH!!!!

Good for her. At least she's not hiding behind a keyboard. She's saying it exactly how she feels. Good for her and I dare the mothafucka to talk shit. Get ya ass beat.

the only tragedy in this video is that bitch in the back with the exact same DRESS,then they had her back her ass away from the shot! LOL

Garcelle looking all kinds of greasy and WRONg here...wtf? tsk tsk tsk

Lalia wouldn't have said this shit about Ann Wolfe's child at least not to her face.

Honey Bun said...

LOL at dummies like Koongay and Beydummy getting exposed as to how DUMB they really are! Bey gets pregnant ( allegedly ) and names the little ugly thing Blue Ivy so Koongay follows suit and gives his girl a dumber name! Koongay wins this one, watch Kim K change the name after they break the fuck up ! WATCH hos!

It is a stupid name, they were just trying to out do Beyonce and Jayz's stupid ass name BLUE IVY.

All four of them are stupid

Glad she had to galls to say it. I understand different, eccentric, symbolic, but some of these names are just dumb as hell.

These demons don't care what they name the child. Those satan worshiping celebs treat babies like accessories.

Carry the baby to the zoo and stick in the enclosure with the apes. It will get raised with more care and attention than what most of these demons provide.

Anonymous said...

Fuck that!

I agree with her 100 percent. No one ever thinks of what the child has to go through or how the child is just forever tarnished with a "catchy" or clever name...

North west is a stupid fucking name made for publicity. What--we're gonna start naming our kids Lollipop Jones and fucking Sweater Person?

Idiots.

Whelp!!!!!!! She has a point...... :)

Whoa. While I agree North is a man's name and too masculine sounding for a woman, Laila and no other bitch ain't no business publicly speaking against the name Kanye chose for his daughter. That shit was wrong! I didn't add Kim because that bitch named the baby what Kanye told her to, lol. She still wanna get laid by North West's pappy.

Anonymous said...

And Kanye better fall back when he see Laila face to face. She looked dead into the camera, and "Yeah, I said it." Bitch is bad, lol!

Anonymous said...

I agree with her. It's the parent's choice true, but why are so many people upset with her for saying that? How many of us laugh and say, "now why did her parents name her that?" when we here names like; Nyquasha, Lalatisha, or Dyqwuanna? We all do it and say it so why attack Laila for it? These names are crazy.

Anonymous said...

I don't blame Laila...it's her opinion, kids gotta to school and live with them stupid names, not the parents.

She looked into the camera afterwards like "yeah I said it and I dare a bitch to come say something about it".

Honey Bun said...

Either Kim, Kris or the baby her damn self WILL change that name at first chance they get....you know Kris got a notary on speed dial!

Anonymous said...

Kanye betta hope his daughter dont give head to the wrong dude like Ray J because he will surely say how he had her head going north and west on his sausage

Anonymous said...

Well as much as I love him, Pharrell named his son "Rocket Man". Fucking Rocket Man, folks... And being honest North is killing a lotta horrible names. I know a nigga named Orangjello... Get into that shit...
