In one fell swoop Taylor Swift returned last night (August 18th) - and landed herself in a race row.
The singer introduced new album '1989' via new single 'Shake It Off', which features Taylor Swift backed by dancers who twerk and jerk.
Borrowing from African-American culture? Well, it landed Lily Allen in hot water...
The Odd Future rapper had the following to say:
haven't watched the taylor swift video and I don't need to watch it to tell you that it's inherently offensive and ultimately harmful— EARL (@earlxsweat) August 19, 2014
perpetuating black stereotypes to the same demographic of white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture— EARL (@earlxsweat) August 19, 2014
for instance, those of you who are afraid of black people but love that in 2014 it's ok for you to be trill or twerk or say nigga— EARL (@earlxsweat) August 19, 2014
