Okay, okay calm down, people.
While you are all losing your mind over ‘cultural appropriation” of an Indian dress, nobody actually consulted THE INDIANS.
In our country, if a foreigner wears an Indian saree, we actually appreciate it. It shows that the foreigner respects us enough to try our clothes. And the saree, mind you, is not a religious thing. Hindus can wear sarees, Muslims can wear sarees, Sikh’s can wear sarees, Jain’s can wear sarees and so on.
Like Americans have short dresses, compare that with sarees. Going to a party? Saree. Going to temple? Saree, and so on.
Some Indians wear it, some don’t. Some hate it and think its oppressing, some love embracing the unique style.
Point is, don’t hate on her for wearing this. Don’t hate on anyone for wearing sarees or any variations of sarees. We love to see others embracing our culture. Why do you think we open our gates to allow everyone to practice yoga and find spiritual meaning?
Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread.
I did not know this. That is really interesting to find out. Thanks for the information.
"Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread."
OMG FUCKING THANK YOU
Another Indian chick popping up to say that sorry, Gaga here is still hella problematic.
Sure, I don’t mind sharing my culture. As long as other people are willing to treat it with respect.
Key words? With. Respect.
Wear a beautiful traditional Kanchipuram or Benares or Kota silk sari, or even one of the newer Sabyasachi or Ritu Kumar ones? You go, baby, I am all for it, you look gorgeous.
This unholy mess of a blanket over harem pants, not so much. She looks like my Barbies used to, with random fabric wrapped around them. It’s sloppy. It’s not well thought out. It looks like it’s having an identity crisis.
But the fact that she’s wearing bad fashion doesn’t bother me (I do come from the land of Govinda, after all) the fact that she’s wearing traditional North Indian bridal jewellery is. The nose-ring with the chain that connects to her earring? The jewellery in her hair? The red sindoor mark on her forehead? The hairpiece and nose ring are traditionally worn by brides on their wedding days, and the sindoor by married women.
Lady Gaga isn’t married. She has absolutely no right to sindoor. And if she had a modicum of respect for the culture she bastardized her outfit from, she’d know better than to wear it.

I love Jim Carrey. I once met him in a 7/11, and I was getting a soda, I turned and saw it was him, and he saw I was going for a Doctor Pepper, so he said “Oh did you want one of these”, to which I stuttered out a yes and he grabbed all of them and said “too bad” and brought them up to the front. Then he bought his stuff and left the sodas there, and left. Almost immediately after, he ran back in and began putting the sodas back and paid for mine.This is what happens when Candians are let lose and try to prank people
