In her mom's new memoir, "Raising Trump", Ivanka penned a passage in which she shared that she went through a "punk phase" in the '90s. "I was really into Nirvana", she writes.

"My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts", Ms. Trump wrote.

"Mom wasn't a fan of this decision".

Unsure what to do with this information, Twitter users did what they do best - made a complete mockery out of the whole thing. You simply can not override blue hair with blonde Nice'n Easy.

We guess she was out of her "punk phase" by then.

The internet was quick to call bullshit on Punk Ivanka Trump. She took one look at me and immediately went out to the nearest drugstore to buy a $10 box of Nice'n Easy. In it, the first daughter reveals an obsession with Kurt Cobain, which, in a confusion of genres, she seems to elide with a punk phase. "The color she picked out was actually three shades lighter than my natural color... and I have never looked back!" Not to sound snobbish, but Nirvana had songs that were a lot more musically complex than your average punk band, although the band's first album, Bleach, has a more punk and metal inspired sound than Nevermind or In Utero.

"Stop saying Ivanka isn't punk".

Trump said she was deeply saddened by Kurt Cobain's suicide and spent a whole day crying.

Still, who wants to read some dreary relatable memory of her mother closing the Trump Tower hair salon for the day and ordering the staff to fix it? Since the end of previous year, she's been trying to get rid of her two-bedroom, two-bathroom NY apartment on Park Avenue-a task that's involved pulling it from the market after no one was interested in its $4.1 million asking price, switching from selling to renting, and then dropping that rental price at least three times, now putting it at $10,450 a month.
