Swedish pop star Zara Larsson was heavily criticized for donning a dress comprised of fabrics from the notorious Norwegian black metal band Burzum.
Last Friday (January 27), the artist stepped out at the “P3 Guld” (Swedish radio’s annual music awards) live awards show adorned in a garment that included pieces of t-shirts from Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth, as well as artwork from Burzum‘s Filosofem album. Additionally, she shared a TikTok video of her wearing the same outfit. In spite of the backlash, Larsson insists she was unaware of the association with the right-wing extremist.
“Oopsie, had no idea. I just thought my clothes looked cool,” she wrote in a message to Aftonbladet.
“It was unfortunate.”
“To clarify, I wasn’t wearing their merchandise, I was wearing Raf Simons (with a print of them, I suppose),” she added, referencing the Belgian fashion designer who apparently came up with the idea for her dress.
