Considering her past infatuation with cholas and harajuku girls, I am not surprised.

No Doubt has taken down their music video for the  http://www.eonline.com/news/359952/no-doubt-s-cowboys-and-indians-themed-music-video-looking-hot-watch-now" rel="nofollow - single "Looking Hot."

Released Friday, the video is  http://www.nme.com/news/no-doubt/66984" rel="nofollow - cowboys-and-Indians themed  and the stereotypical images including headdresses, tepees, and smoke signals. They got negative feedback from the Native American community once the video was posted on YouTube.

"As a multi-racial band our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures,"  http://www.nodoubt.com/#!news" rel="nofollow - No Doubt said in a statement on their website.  "Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history. Although we consulted with Native American friends and Native American studies experts at the University of California, we realize now that we have offended people."

"Looking Hot" is the second single off the band's upcoming album,  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/29/no-doubt-push-shove-diplo_n_1840480.html" rel="nofollow - "Push and Shove." It's the band's first album since 2001's "Rock Steady."



Here's the video

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xut9bc_no-doubt-looking-hot_music?start=112" rel="nofollow - http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xut9bc_no-doubt-looking-hot_music?start=112

The song is also garbage.   I doubt that they actually consulted people.  I miss old school No Doubt.

I have such high hopes for No Doubt, because Tragic Kingdom, Return of Saturn and Rock Steady were AHH-MAY-ZING. But...I just dont know anymore.

High-key, they should'nt have gone on that reunion tour until they were ready to put out new music. The high and the excitement of the 2009 summer tour has worn off, and nobody is really checking for them anymore.

I wonder what her white man has to say about her vids. I'm on my phone so I couldn't look at the other vid.

Every non-religious widely celebrated American holiday is the product of racism and/or genocide.

LOL Even if you mention to a white person how their ancestors done fucced over the Natives of north, south and central America, they will almost always state how they have native blood in them.

She is really pretty. Why does she talk so hard though? She exaggerates her enunciation and facial movements. It seems like her face would hurt just to talk like that. It's annoying.

I haven't actually watched the video, but it clearly contains offensive things pertaining to NAs. But I can also appreciate that they had the humility to apologize instead of pulling some typical cheese and wine with a side order of white tears. Instead of trying to refute the racism, they outright acknowledged it and how offensive it is and apologized.

It's sad to say, but when it comes to racism, that kind of humility is rare.

Doesn't give them a pass for such blatant racist mess, but I'm glad they have such humility. It's refreshing in the face of such ugliness.

I've never met a black Native American until I moved to Ga...then every black person I met there had a grandma that was Cherokee or half Cherokee

White culture is entrenched with racism and offensiveness... hell, that is White culture

Makes sense that the average White person, who considers them a "friend" of the culture they mimicked wouldn't find this racist

Sacred parts of their history. Native Americans dont just start throwing up smoke signals 'cuz they're bored, and only a select few get headdresses. It's like a Medal of Honor from the military.

They're offended because people using their culture as a trend or fashion statement trivializes it.

The next time an artist attempts to pay homage to Native Americans, I would strongly suggest that they really do their research and be sure to present accurate and respectful representations of Native American peoples that truly honour our heritage and culture instead of perpetuating racist stereotypes.
