Poppy Covers t.A.T.u.‘s All The Things She Said For Pride Month
Poppy has covered Russian music duo t.A.T.u.‘s huge 2002 single All The Things She Said in honour of Pride Month.
In a statement written under her real name, Moriah, the musician reveals that she had delivered the song to her record label “over two weeks ago, with the purpose of being released in time for Pride Month”.
Of course, the world has changed substantially in these two weeks, following the death of George Floyd while in police custody in America, and the subsequent protests that have spread across the globe.
“Unfortunately, in the time elapsed since then, we’ve been faced with a tragedy that calls for our much needed attention,” Poppy writes.
“While we are still fighting for equality in the LGBTQ+ community, we still have a long way to go, and there still remains an absurd amount of injustice for minorities in America.”
Addressing Donald Trump and the U.S. government’s handling of the entire situation, she continues, “I cannot adequately express my distain for how our government, and above all, our president is reacting to what’s happening in America right now.
“I encourage you to educate yourself, go out and protest, donate, and raise your voice to speak out against this injustice.
“I’ll also be sharing a few links to donate to if you have the means to do so.
“I stand with you in love.”
