Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson has fans worried. She is literally growing up before their very eyes but is it too much too quick? A recent Instagram reel showcased a more “adult” side of the teen. It led her followers to question if she was starting to spiral out of control.

Honey Boo Boo No More?

Viewers met Alana when she was a tiny tot on Toddlers and Tiaras. She had so much spunk and comedic charm that she garnered herself and her family their own show. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was a hit on TLC as it followed Alana, her mom and dad, and her three older sisters. All of them had their quirks and it became an interesting guilty pleasure for fans. Unfortunately, Alana’s parents Mama June and Sugar Bear broke up due to his infidelity. Then, June started seeing a man who did not have a good track record whatsoever, and the show was canceled. Luckily, June decided to completely reinvent herself which landed her a new show.

Alana and her sister Pumpkin joined along with viewers in getting to see a maturing Honey Boo Boo. Sadly, June got heavily into drugs with her new boyfriend Geno Doak, and ended up getting arrested. Fortunately, Pumpkin was seeing some stability as she had just gotten married and had a new baby. Therefore, she welcomed Alana into her home in 2019 as June headed to sobriety. She has been raising Alana ever seen and she has been evolving into a little lady. Fans have watched her experiment with makeup, long nails, and even land her first boyfriend. Yet it is her latest move that is making heads turn. Is she growing up just way too fast or going down a road that is not healthy?

Growing Up Too Fast?

Alana aka Honey Boo Boo is almost seventeen but fans have questioned her actions lately. First off, she did a photoshoot with Pumpkin to reveal her new twins to the world. In it, Alana is posing with them but it was hard for some to focus on the babies as she was wearing heavy eyelashes and long nails. She is pretty already so they felt she should tone it down a little bit. Now, according to The Sun, she may have toned down the makeup and nails but she did add something new.

The reality star has gotten a second nose piercing as she obtained her first one at fifteen. Her sisters Pumpkin and Jessica both have tattoos while Pumpkin has a tongue ring. Followers noticed the new piercing on Alana’s Instagram while she was promoting a new shirt drop. This is what they had to say:

  • “You look so beautiful without the huge eyelashes and long nails”
  • “I love you soo much with no makeup! You are a very nice looking young lady”
  • “You are soo darling without all that trashy make up! Really.”
  • “You are Naturally beautiful, you don’t need to enhance anything, (ie lashes, extreme nails…) just know that. ❤️ Watch you every week!”

It appears that her followers were much more approving of her double nose piercings than overdone makeup, lashes, and nails. She is clearly not spiraling but just figuring out who she is which is pretty normal for someone of her age. It is just rough as she is doing it in front of millions.
