So I like some of her music but am not what I’d call a fan — I generally like her but only know radio hits, have never followed her, doubt I’d pay to see her perform — and haven’t been following the situation too closely. I was surprised to hear the allegations and think it’s a shame since at least some of her platform is based around anti-bully and body positivity. But then again, she’s in a position to curate her public image. Since I don’t follow her, I haven’t read her statement yet. I assume she denies it, and also suspect this will follow the similar pattern we’ve seen with other scandals where more people will feel emboldened to come forward if they haven’t already.
