Prince Charles recently named singer Katy Perry as a British Asian Trust ambassador.
The 35-year-old artist was given the title during the trust’s annual royal dinner in London, England on Tuesday evening.
BTS was among the performers during KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball 2019 at The Forum in Los Angeles on December 6 and members of the ARMY came in droves.
The South Korean supergroup opened the star-studded show which featured Katy Perry, Sam Smith, Halsey, French Montana, Camila Cabello, Billie Eilish, Normani and Lizzo.
Earlier in 2018, a white female student wore a Cheongsam dress to her high school prom and consequently sparked a massive debate on cultural appropriation. But of course, that wasn’t the first time this topic has taken over the internet. Like broken records, we’re talking about this every year around Halloween and festival season and among the worst offenders happens to be some of the most popular celebrities.
Here are 12 times celebrities were caught appropriating Asian culture:
Katy Perry will not be able to perform at Victoria’s Secret fashion show in Shanghai, China after the Chinese government reportedly denied her a visa.
The singer was originally scheduled to sing at the fashion show at the end of November. Perry earned the ire of many Chinese back in 2015 when she wore the Taiwanese flag during a performance at her concert in Taiwan, reports Page Six, which cited sources privy to the event.
Katy Perry has earned the ire of a number of Indian netizens after the American pop star posted an allegedly “offensive” photo of an Indian goddess on Instagram.
According to Mashable, the 32-year-old singer-songwriter uploaded an image of Kali, the Hindu goddess of death, along with the caption “current mood.” The Hindu deity, which is often associated with sexuality and love, is widely worshiped throughout India.
