She’s Not Seeing Red!!!
LEGEND Gwen Stefani Slams the Idea of Cultural Appropriation, Social Media Virtue Signaling, and Celebrity Politics
“I think that we grew up in a time where we didn’t have so many rules,” she said. “We didn’t have to follow a narrative that was being edited for us through social media, we just had so much more freedom.”
The superstar also pushed back on the belief that celebrities have a duty to wade into political issues.
“Ska she’s always happy to discuss, but Stefani was brought up to keep her electoral preferences personal, and that rule has held for her entire career,” writes Gillespie.
“The whole point of voting, is you have this personal space to feel how you feel,” Stefani said. “I use my platform to share my life story and to engage with people and to exchange whatever gift I was giving. I’m not a political science major. I am not that person. Everyone knows that. So why would I even talk about it?”
