@maria: the fu*ck are you even talking about? BO or whatever has his/her own problems going on — and my comments are directed solely by me — last time i say this: Your comments along with “tina’s” are racist and disgusting — and how would you know if v.h was a racist or not? shut up.. when you grow up you’ll understand what culture actually means. and its NOT taking photos and posting them on instagram.
later!!

@.: She is pathetic, trying to make problems where there are none. Vanessa not allowed to admire someone because he is from a different country? That’s racism.

@!!: Good grief. You are such an idiot, and I don’t care where you’re from. Bo made a stupid comment about how she just realized Vanessa does not look Indian, and I was just saying she never did. Totally went over your racist head. Oh well. I do find it fascinating that you and people like Bo know how to swear very well.

actually onco , i said the first day i came here that she looks like us .and now aftre seein these pics , i came to the conclusuon that she doesn’t look lke us afterall

@BOHJI: But those people you speak of in your country are exposed to other cultures all their lives bohji, and i know for a fact that very very very few chinese in KL would dress up in traditional indian wear, the malays and a few other cultures may dress up in traditional muslim attire, but that’s because they are muslim. If cultures cross dress there, it’s reserved for certain types of the year, but those people have Point here is that if you wear the traditional clothes of another culture and choose to pimp yourself out to the public on a widespread medium like instagram, you should at least have a deep interest in that culture. Out of respect for them.

!! , don’t let me guess who this is. I don’t see how it is considered insulting when one wears another’s cultural/ traditional costume. I have attended Hindu weddings and see non- Indians wearing beautiful saris whilst some opt for punjabi garb and there are those who wear western evening wear, what’s the big deal and fuss?
No one can have ownership of a cultural outfit. It is free for all. It is like saying if you are Asian then you should only reside in an Asian country and if you are Caucasian you must live in your country of origin. You are not allowed to mix cultures and inter-racial, cultural marriages should be prohibited. A good example of a comment by an ignoramus.

a little lesson on cultural appropriation: it’s NOT okay for someone to appropriate someone else’ s culture. that IS actually racist (regardless of her intent)

this isn’t about her being a racist, it’s about her DOING A THING that is racist. vanessa is mixed with several things, but she is not indian.

It’s one thing to admire a culture, it’s a completely different thing to f*cking appropriate it like it’s a trend.

And also, “western clothing” is made in places like india, china, indonesia, etc. so you might want to try that argument from a different angle, sweetie.

@tina: That is NOT racism. Man you guys are so quick to pull the trigger with that accusation. It wouldnt be so bad if pudgie were immersing herself in the culture, but these are vanity shots. The more religion-based the attire, the more people of that particular race will take offense.

@BOHJI: Is Vanessa trying to break into the bollywood scene? Maybe that’s what this is all about.

Nightwish, you are wrong and it just goes to show how much you know of my country. Our sarong kebaya is worn by all races here and it is worn with pride. Even our airline uses the kebaya as its uniform and the baju kurung is again worn in government schools by all females. The beauty of it is they have a choice to wear the pinafore dress or the baju kurung. It is not restricted to Malays or Muslims a s you call it. Women of all races use the baju kurung for work as it is comfortable and easy to wear .

@BOHJI: Islam (muslim) is not a culture/race, it’s a religion.

Layna, you have a lot to learn. Your comment denotes ignorance.

This is where assumptions come into place. She has in the past stated her interest in meditation and her admiration for Ravi Shankar. My boys will laugh at the fact you assume someone who disagrees with you is a tween.

ok,so now hudge pudge wore our dress and addresd an indian legend cause she wanted to show that she respects indian culture.my leg!

@BOHJI: actually my comment has nothing to do with ignorance. I am a Muslim. and Islam actually has nothing to do with ones culture or race. and if you think it does, you have ways to go.

india ,don’t think u are alone in this.ur tiny neighbour is always with u!

@BOHJI: and also, the last thing I want to bring into this discussion is religion. vanessa hudgens appropriating a culture has nothing to do with religion.

@BOHJI: Pudgies intentions notwithstanding, these pics are too self-serving and vanity-based for my taste. And that kebaya you brought up has become generic national attire at this point, yeah it has cross culture influences but its basically the equivalent of an aloha shirt from hawaii. Nobody would take much offense to that.

@ Layna, don’t I know that?! 95 percent of our Malays are Muslims.
For crying out loud a lot of westerners adopt the Indian garb when they attend spiritual courses in India. Look at the Beatles in their heyday, they wore Indian outfits when they visited India in pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. Was that an insult?!

Having been to India, a sari is just basically a dress and anyone can wear one. And yes, if VH had been dressed in American Indian garb there’d be an outcry. Personally I think these are dreadful pictures of her. She looks like a ghoul. Dress is beautiful, but the camera angle makes her look dreadful.

She’s trying to market herself to bollywood. She might even have a small project nobody knows about, and this is a teaser. Who knows. With van, it’s attention seeking, that much is certain.

@BOHJI: So cultural appropriation is okay because the Beatles did it? is that was you’re saying?

listen, we can go on for days with this same old conversation. the point is, you CAN appreciate a culture without appropriating it like it’s a trend.

Yeah,but hudge pudge isn’t attending anythng in india here.lol

@Layna, I have good Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, and Christian friends of different denominations and then again I have friends who are more spiritually inclined. I think everyone should be allowed to have the freedom of choice when it comes to religion.

@BOHJI: lol ……………………. what does your friends spiritual/religious beliefs have anything to do with what i just said?

everyone should have the ability to practice the religion/spirituality they want. that’s a basic human right.

but that has got NOTHING to do with what i just said about cultural appropriation.
