Excuse me, Cultural Appropriation Police. I have a question. As Katy is strictly a caucasian American if she wants to perform a theatrical event does that mean she is strictly limited to representing only things in Red, White, and Blue; perhaps being a colonial person in a powdered wig? It seems best to avoid the only other things American history* could possibly reflect on. (All of a True American’s history* appears to be otherwise related to war and destroying all original forms of being of this land.)
It’s not ok to limit art like that. This was an exceptional production that employed a great number of people in design and performance. Showing America what a blockbusting concert or live stage production can be like. Which is inspiring people to attend live arts events.
This production also showed the beauty of a different culture and a lot of respect was clearly involved for this.
To limit this stating, “(it’s worth noting that Perry’s costume featured an ample amount of cleavage, which is not at all characteristic of either garment) is to slut shame her for having a full chest. As in BREAST, A WOMAN WITH BREAST! I’m sure lovely well-endowed women of any culture known for those garments do exist and happen to still wear clothes. You could be more honest and note there is a cut-out in the throat of her gown, “which is not at all a characteristic of either garment”. That would be fine.
You all are disgusting. Of course this is referencing an article from Vulture. Of course. What is wrong with supporting the arts now?
