But a lot of people were not very happy about the use of a sugar skull as decoration.
They totally killed it but the props weren’t as popular as Little Mix’s showmanship. Amongst the splash of colors on the stage was a sugar skull also known as a Calavera front and center. The Calavera is traditionally used in the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead. Hence where the comments about cultural appropriation are coming from. The Day of the Dead is a sacred celebration that remembers loved ones who have passed, so many fans were not happy with such a significant symbol being used out of context.
Criticizers of the skull being used blew up on Twitter saying QUOTE – “Very disappointed in Little Mix’s performance. Showmanship was on point. But how dare they use calavera’s as “creepy/cute” decorations.”
Another fan wrote – “The sugar skull means so much to my culture & for @LittleMix to use it for fashion pisses me off to another level.” “So pleased that everyone else is pointing out Little Mix’s cultural appropriation of the Calavera. Glad I’m not the only one to notice”
One critic made the point that they would have been fine if just a plain skull was used saying QUOTE – “little mix couldve just used a plain skull, why did they use a sugar skull thats just offensive”
This one is definitively a touchy subject and sticky situation. In juiceier news, Perrie Edwards and Louis Tomlinson were spotted last night taking a car together following the Brit Awards. Does it mean anything? Probably not. Dudes got a kid and a woman. Plus that would break some serious bro code considering the fact that Perrie is Zayn’s ex. Stay out of that storm. But what do you guys think about Little Mix’s performance controversy and Perrie riding with Louis?
