I’m not even a Katy Perry fan but if you’re gonna rage over her “cultural appropriation” please be sure to mention everyone else who does it.
I’ve seen plenty of you here on tumblr and twitter bitch about Katy Perry’s braids yet you just adore Brooke Candy.
What I’m saying is, if you call yourself being against something please don’t pick and choose when, you can’t make it okay for some artist and wrong for others.
I personally don’t consider Katy Perry’s music video a product of “cultural appropriation”.
1) Beyoncé was in China surrounded by native people who were teaching her. She wasn’t making a joke of their culture.
2) Nicki… Well… No comment.
3) Pharrell knew what he did was wrong and apologized immediately afterwards.
4) Katy does this CONSTANTLY without apology. She just blissfully remains ignorant and doesn’t care about appropriating other cultures because she just simple writes it off as “embracing” it. That’s the problem with her, Iggy, Gaga, Miley, and so on. They don’t give a fuck about disrespecting someone else’s culture because they think it’s cute or high fashion.
Those pictures of Beyoncé and Pharrell are weak comparisons to what those idiots do.
Edit: it’s sad that the person making excuses for Katy is a black man. It’s really unfortunate that a lot of you will remain lost and ignorant forever.
