I don’t follow Gwen Stefani at all. I did buy ‘Hollaback Girl’ on iTunes because I liked the bass line only to find the rest of the song sucked.
I didn’t know that Gwen has a quartet of asian girls following her around that were inspired by harajuku fashion but devolve into the usual asian stereotypes: (via Angry Asian Man)
Stefani has taken the idea of Japanese street fashion and turned these women into modern-day geisha, contractually obligated to speak only Japanese in public, even though it’s rumored they’re just plain old Americans and their English is just fine. She’s swallowed a subversive youth culture in Japan and barfed up another image of submissive giggling Asian women.
