Not the cute brand/icon, the Avril video.
Everyone’s losing their shit over it (not surprised in the least) because she used lots of Japanese stuff to put it shortly.
And there’s nothing wrong with that. But she used it with such poor taste! It just seems like the Japanese was put in there JUST BECAUSE it was Japanese and she tried to be very “kawaii” (which also didn’t match the whole slumber party lyrics part)
I can see how it is offensive and for some reason I can’t explain (haha, accidental Coldplay) the Japanese words made me cringe. Maybe because to me it sounded as if she barely knew what she was saying, which just irritated me. The whole video kind of had a weeaboo tint to it.
I wish I could choose better words for what I’m thinking but this is the best I can do at 2:21AM X3
