Appropriation or Appreciation

I’m pretty sure Beyoncé was born wearing a crown. Coldplay’s gorgeous new video for “Hymn for the Weekend” were filmed on location in Mumbai, India during Holi, the festival of colors and love. The band performs while traditions of tossed colors celebrate the religious holiday. Queen Bey make her appearance as a Bollywood film star dressed in traditional Desi adornment. She looks incredible!

Criticism towards Beyoncé’s appearance was considered by some, cultural appropriation, particularly of Desi traditions. Is it appropriation or appreciation? #hymnfortheweekend #coldplay #beyonce #trendibitch #randomrants #trends #loveit #loatheit #bitchaboutit #trending #madeyougoogle
