Okay… So things have been blowing up on a certain performing artist, key phrase here – “PERFORMING ARTIST”. One of the members of BLACKPINK, Lalisa, is being blasted over a particular hairstyle she has in her ad promoting her new single – “MONEY”.
What’s my overall take on it? It is JUST F*CKING HAIR! Get over yourselves everybody. It’s HAIR! Who gives a shit? Don’t pull the “cultural appropriation” bullsh!t. How is it affecting you, overall? It is not. It’s just because it may hurt someone’s feelings? Get off your high horses “Karen’s” out there.
As he said towards the end, “…Ya’ll finding shit to complain about because every body else is complaining.”
Also, she’s a performing artist. She performs and is an artist. Get it through your thick skulls everyone. They’re going to be dressing and styling however they like because that is what they do as an performer and as an artist! Oh my gosh, “How You Like That?” With the pun intended.
Let’s see what others are saying about this in the Twitterverse…
What a sad world we are living in this day and age. Seriously, though why ya’ll bitchin’ and complainin’? Just because she’s becoming more popular around the world along with the rest of the members of BLACKPINK, people gotta complain about something that’s not even remotely offensive?
How about this… quite a bit of times people go into a Vietnamese restaurant or any Asian restaurant in general and ask for a fork as their utensil of choice to eat the food versus using chopsticks. Do you see the servers there or the owner be offended by that notion because the patrons choose to use a fork to eat their food rather than a chopstick? Uh… no. They give you the fork and let you eat. They’re literally happy to see customers enjoying their food, regardless of how it is eaten.
So then… braids are only for black people…? Is that your take on it (those “Karens” out there in this ridiculous world we live in now)? Why the fluff do you care how someone’s hair style is or is not? It’s not on your head. It’s their choice to have whatever the fluff hair they want to have. How does one’s style affect your own ability to live your life? It DOES NOT.
Man people got to freaking get a life and be more intelligent.
I love BLACKPINK and their music, it is really good and their rhythm is amazing. If they ever stumble upon this blog, I shall leave a message of encouragement for them as a whole… Please continue to make music because all of you are amazing and I hope you all get to perform, again, all over the world (in another world tour). I hope you come back to the USA and perform because it’d be great to see your concert.
I shall end this blog with a portion of wise lyrics from Weezer – “Pork and Beans”:
“…Everyone likes to dance to a happy song
With a catchy chorus and beat so they can sing along…
…I’ma do the things that I wanna do
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you
I’ll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if I make a scene
I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like
I’m fine and dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think…”
