I'm not trying to invalidate her feelings or say her Filipino background doesn't count. My issue was with her statement that "pop-stars were only white" and her fans are glad to see someone like her up on the stage...

She's coming up in a generation that has been the most diversified it's ever been.

It's like when celebrities tried to act like they were financially suffering the same way the rest of the world was during the COVID pandemic. It's an image that appeals to the masses.
