Rarely does a week go by that a celebrity is not accused of cultural appropriation.
With festival season in full swing, famous people are stealing cultures left and right — despite being told, over and over again, that appropriation is never "appreciation."
The latest famous person being dragged for cultural theft: Halsey. During a recent performance in New Zealand, she wore a questionable stage outfit that has all of Instagram speaking up.
Regardless of the references, it was definitely lost in translation to her followers.
Even if those in charge of Halsey's look weren't inspired by Muslim culture, they should definitely be more in tune with the cultural dialogue in 2018. Adopting looks reminiscent of a headscarf or a Niqab solely for fashion purposes is a very risky decision.
Hopefully Halsey's future performance looks will be more thoughtful, and acknowledge her own rich culture! Maybe take a note from Beyoncé?
