I, personally think it was a very good performance. So why was it a problem with some people? I don't get it.

It was a freakin' awesome performance, so I don't get it... Why the hate?

Someone, explain it to me.

Two years ago.
The comments not only arrived, they reached maturity and had children of their own.

I... don't understand the problem?

Though it does seem like there is a little bit of butthurt.

Katy Perry performed in a Kimono in what appeared like a pretty tasteful if generic Japanese themed performance. Riffs off "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" and dropping Sakura petals, pretty obv stuff. Dunno why the giant slits in the kimonos showing leg are as much a problem since dancers, and movement are a thing. Katy Perry's 'boob window' is also a thing of contention, but if I can show my biases a second Katy Perry should always have a boob window (make it bigger).

Speaking to my perspective to as why this is 'ok' is because it is representation, not appropriation. It's respectfully done.
