Burzum is considered one of the important Norwegian black metal bands from the 90s, but which many metal fans distanced themselves from because of the only member Varg Vikerne's extreme right-wing views, Ika Johannesson says.
In 1994, he was sentenced to 21 years in prison for several church fires and the murder of Mayhem guitarist Øystein "Euronymous" Aarseth.
In addition to that, Vikernes has been convicted of incitement against a ethnic group and accused of being a Nazi.
- Regardless of Burzum's influence on metal history, it is a shirt that the vast majority choose not to wear, says Ika Johannesson.
Zara Larsson: "Oopsie"
SVT Nyheter has applied for Zara Larsson.
In a comment to Aftonbladet, the artist writes:
“Oopsie, had no idea.
Just thought my clothes looked cool.”
Zara Larsson further writes that it was unfortunate, but clarifies that the dress is not part of the artist's own merchandise but was designed by Raf Simons.
According to Ika Johannesson, this is how it can be if you, as an outsider, want to borrow elements from metal culture.
- It is neither the first nor the last time someone wants to look weird by picking details from a culture they know nothing about.
That is the only thing that is possibly upsetting in this, she says.
