Lady Gaga and Cultural Appropriation

Unread postby Dolly » 8th October, 2017, 10:48 am

I kind of just noticed that Lady Gaga is culturally appropriating the American South while listening to Lady Gaga's latest album, Joanne. Here is the song in question:



She is adopting the Southern style of country and folk music and mimicking a Southern accent (e.g. prolonging her "o"s, using the Southern drawl, etc.)

What are y'all's thoughts on this? We hear about cultural appropriation quite frequently, especially in regards to Asian and African cultures being "stolen," but it seems that nobody has batted an eye about an incredibly wealthy Manhattanite who grew up in the affluent parts of New York, far from the South, stealing Southern culture and accents.

Pretty sure I can speak for the entire state of Alabama, if not the entire south, when I say, just like the Japanese when White Girls wear Kimonos, no one gives a single flying fuck.

I said you'd become a snowflake when you went to uni, did I not?
