Adele has been accused of “normalising sexual harassment” by way of her music.
By who and why?
The University of Oklahoma’s Gender + Equality Centre has used lyrics from the singer’s hit single ‘Hello’ to highlight the way in which some of Pop’s biggest numbers may normalise harassment on college campuses and in wider society.
The poster above is one of many currently circulating around the campus and sees Adele join a group of artists also included in the conversation.
For, another poster shone a light on Maroon 5‘s lyrics from the cut ‘Animal.’
Baby, I’m preying on you tonight. Hunt you down eat you alive’ from song Animals.
