Disrespecting a Cultural Icon is a NO NO

Just a few moments ago we typed "Disrespecting an Icon" into Google search and Dancehall singer Ishawna came up. It is safe to say that she is "trending", we here at The Haute Lifestyle are not in the business of bashing or disrespecting women but! we thought it made sense to shed light on what she did.

The popular Instagram post with the singer dressed in a barely there outfit with the words:

 "Mi nuh dress inna tablecloth like Miss Lou" sent many in a frenzy on Social Media and Miss Lou herself came back to life and dissed her in true Miss Lou Fashion. For my international readers who might not have known who Miss Lou is, think of her as the Maya Angelou of the Caribbean, she brought Jamaican Creole to life by way of story telling and poetry. Here is what Google said "Louise Simone Bennett-Coverley or Miss Lou, OM, OJ, MBE, was a Jamaican poet, folklorist, writer, and educator". 

I think as an adult female, there are certain things you just don't do which includes Insulting a cultural Icon! I think this is where my generation often go wrong; the line between respect and disrespectful is often blurred and we have no respect for those before us who paved the way so we could have access to certain resources. We kinda understand what she was saying .. ish, after all that is what you do on Instagram; you wear next to nothing clothing then you quote a scripture or something similar to Ishawna. We think this one went a bit too far in all aspects and she should give a formal, sincere apology to the Minister of Culture and the people of Jamaica on a whole and explain why she thought it was necessary to make that reference. All in all, Ishawna was successful in being a trending topic on Social Media so she got something out of all of this debauchery.

What are your thoughts on the Issue?
