Earlier in 2019, the songstress responded to the backlash about culture appropriation in a Billboard interview.

“I get a little defensive when people call it culture appropriation, because if we didn’t allow each other to share our cultures, what would we be?” she said.

“You take pride in your culture and have traditions, and then you share them for new things to be created,” added Stefani.
