Talented singer and songwriter, Msaki, has shared her opinion on the way celebs are treated - and she is not happy. According to her, treating celebs very badly has become the normal thing to do.
Mzansi singer, Msaki, opened up on how she feels about the treatment of celebs in the media and on social media platforms.
She is not happy and expressed her disappointment on the 'problematic celebrity culture' in a statement on Twitter.
According to Msaki, it has become normal to treat celebs in what she calls a 'vile, evil and hypocritical' way.
Msaki said, in part:
"The concept of celebrity culture is problematic. How essentially ordinary humans, who are celebrated for whatever reason (usually being gifted in something and or working very hard) are treated by others is the most vile, evil, hypocritical, graceless way of dealing with another human... That has become normalised in pop culture media, social media and our conversations."
TimesLIVE reports that Msaki is one of the country's most in-demand singers at the moment, so it's safe to assume she's seen and felt this treatment for herself.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Msaki called 'celebrity culture' a hoax. Check out her full statement:
