white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
*slowly backflips into space*
but Gwen Stefani is showing America Harijuku style? I could be 10000% wrong and If I am I apologize, but they way the girls are dressed are stuff in the harijuku style?
No, there is no “harajuku style”. Harajuku is a district in Tokyo. There’s a lot of interesting fashion there (people usually mean decora when they say “harajuku style”) but no specific “harajuku style”.
Gwen Stefani’s dancers are not dressed in a style you would see there, they’re just dressed in “weird” clothing.
These portrayals by white women reduce Japanese culture to a stereotype so they can stand out.
They just like it
as many other people all over the world
I dressed Decora too and I couldn’t stand it when people were trying to explain to me that I dressed like this cuz I wanted to have attention
I did not. I liked it, thats why
Artists have different concepts
Maybe the video is not that good or the song dont fit your taste
But I am sure they never want to strengthen any prejudices
