DRAMA from feathers ? WTF There is nothing wrong with feathers in her hair. EA is an entertainer with an open mind, she can wear anything she likes, that's why I started to like her last summer.
Vegan shmegan, it's not a Religion, and like any Religion, don't push it on anyone. For me, I like animals, they taste good, when cooked properly. HA!
People aren't saying "I'm vegan, so EA should only use animal parts through ethical means" they're saying "She's vegan... So how did she obtain the feathers?" EA has said several times that she's vegan, no one's "pushing" it on her; it's a decision that she made for herself.
That said, I think that if people want to get upset over feathers the time has come and gone. I'm under the impression that VeVa is vegetarian or vegan and she has been using feathers in her act for a good long while. EA probably obtained the feathers in an ethical way (birds loose feathers naturally or die of natural causes- there are ethical ways of getting feathers) and I don't think she imagined that it would cause enough drama to warrant an explanation.
And I don't think EA was thinking of Native Americans at all when she made her hair piece. It's a mohawk with feathers in it. People are wearing feathers in their hair on a daily basis these days. One of EA's friends related EA's wig to Native Americans... That doesn't mean it was EA's intent.
