Rockin’ It! Travis Barker Hits the Red Carpet with His Kids

02/15/2016 at 08:30 PM ET

Daddy’s mini musicians!

Proud father Travis Barker brought along two very special guests to Monday’s Grammy Awards: son Landon Asher, 12, and daughter Alabama Luella, 10.

While speaking to E! News‘ Giuliana Rancic, the rocker’s son said he was looking forward to seeing The Weekend, Kendrick Lamar and Justin Bieber while Alabama admitted to being a big Lady Gaga fan.

“When they were really young, I had them both playing drums. I basically told them, at any point, if someone puts sticks in your hands because you’re my kids, you got to know what to do with them,” Barker joked of his children’s musical talents.

“So that started him on drums and she can still play, but she prefers the piano and singing.”

Their other talent? Taking fun photos to post to their respective Instagram accounts. And while Barker admitted both children “usually show me stuff” or he will “catch something” before they post, he is happy to let his kids be a part of social media.

“They know what’s up, they’ve been touring with me since they were 2 and they know what’s right and what’s wrong,” he explained. “I think it’s just making sure there is no creeps or anything weird.”

He added, “It’s something fun for them, like on vacation they take pictures.”

And while Landon and Alabama stole the show, Barker — who is slated to perform with Pitbull, Robin Thicke and Joe Perry — did touch on Blink 182’s much-anticipated upcoming album.

“We’ve got like 26 songs. We’ve been working with John Feltman, who’s a great friend, and he’s producing the album,” Barker shared. “It’s amazing. It should drop summertime.”

I clicked on her Instagram account and wished i hadn’t. A ten year old with a public account featuring heavy make up, acrylic nails and dozens of kissy lip selfies made me uneasy and sad for her. I can’t believe her father would allow it, let alone promote her Instagram account at the Grammys.

Aw, I haven’t seen these kids since Meet the Barkers! I was obsessed with that show and Shanna Moakler before the s***show that was their divorce. Nice to see the kids still look cute…no comment on any crazy ig pictures there might be lol.

Wow! She’s only 10 and doing this. I’m sorry and not trying to be mean but seriously a 10 year old should not have access to this. She’s 10 for crying out loud! This breaks my heart. Be a child stop trying to pose sexy for Instagram. What’ on earth is she going to post at 11,12, 13?

Okay. . . . there’s trouble coming there. 10 years old and wearing makeup? In about six years he and the ex will be crying about how they had no idea their daughter is a drug addict and banging half of the drummers in LA. Nice way to perpetuate another generation of losers.

While I think 10 is too young to have a public Instagram account, her pictures look harmless. I was curious after reading the comments about her wearing makeup — but when I looked, all I saw was mascara, and lipstick. Her eyebrows are plucked, no heavy liner, or smokey eye, no trashy outfits, etc. I don’t think she looks outrageous. If the comments are referring to her makeup at the Grammy’s, it’s probably because it’s a special night, so her parents let her have some fun. Her Grammy outfit looks age appropriate to me.

Yikes! Fake eyelashes! Acrylics! Sparkle eye shadow! 10 years old? Where’s the innocence anymore? And the brother! Hair dyed (but if you google them, you’d see that since they were very young their looks were way too sophisticated)! And both just
couldn’t stop looking at themselves in the monitor and never looked
at Guiliana when she asked them questions! Such arrogance and self-importance at such a young age. So sad.

Just to give Travis and his kids the benefit of the doubt I’m going to remind everyone that her mother is a beauty pageant queen… Of course at 10 years old she will know a thing or two about makeup and posing. No would I let this child or any child’s account be public? No!

I could make so many comments just from running through her instagram account and reading the comments here but my one question is this: what on earth about this girls life is what ANY of us would consider normal? Normal for us is dinner with our families and going to school. Normal for her is celebs and after concert parties. While not the way I would want to raise my kids remember like another person said that her Mom is a former beauty queen and her Dad is in a band. What is normal in their existence is going to seem totally insane to most people.

His kids are cute but I think 10 year old is too young to have a public Instagram account.
