Los Angeles, Feb 23 (IANS) Following rapper Kanye West’s Twitter rant, singer Charli XCX has defended him by saying that everyone has “the right to speak their own minds.”
“I think artists have the right to speak their own minds, always,” she said.
XCX also pointed out that it’s free for everyone to express their feeling without being censored, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“You know. I don’t think anyone should be censored,” she added.
At the same time, the 23-year-old songstress explained her opinion on wearing fur.
Despite attending Yeezy’s fur-heavy New York Fashion Show last week, she hinted that she strictly disagreed with people who wore fur.
“I don’t wear fur. I’ve become more educated about fur. When I was younger I probably would have worn it in shoots without realising the ethics behind it,” the “Boom clap” hitmaker said.
“But now, I actively don’t. There are some things I’ve heard that have been really upsetting. So I’m still learning but I actively try not to wear it,” she added.
Earlier this month, West insulted his former girlfriend Amber Rose during his feud with rapper Wiz Khalifa on Twitter.
West slammed Rose, who was also Khalifa’s former girlfriend and his child’s mother, and mentioned her son Sebastian. A few days later, West claimed Bill Cosby was innocent before declaring that he had $53 million debt.
