daughter wants to go goth

Hello everyone. My daughter, age 11 wants to go goth. Last time we went shopping, she told me that she wanted to dye her beautiful brown hair black, because she was going goth. When I told her no, she said that she would settle for emo (emotional goth). My husband and I can't figure out why she's doing this, as she comes from a loving home. Could it be because her Aunt used to be a goth? I have a seven month year old that she ADORES, but when I was pregnant she would'nt talk to me. This is all very confusing and dissapionting to us, as we are both 29 and hoped to have another baby, but we are worried that she would hate us if I was pregnant again. Any suggestions? Should we have another baby?
