Anouk represented The Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmo, Sweden. Her “Birds” was the first Dutch entry to qualify for the Finals since 2004 and the first song to enter the Top 10 since 1999.
Now Anouk just released her latest song “Wigger”. Some may think it’s a bit controversial. Anouk said on her facebook page that “A few weeks ago, I wrote a song Wigger. I played it back and thought, maybe a few people are gonna freak. But why really ? The word “Wigger”, what does it mean. I have been hearing this word much more frequently than before. It gets people pissed. But I mean is it derogatory ?
According to wikipedia, a Wigger is slang for a White person inspired by black culture.
Anouk herself is not worried about the usage of that word: “We do after all live in a world where we are inspired regardless of skin colour or gender! So I’ve come to the conclusion it’s all bullshit. I am what I am. A true blond, proud wigger & honestly it suits me better then anyone else, doesn’t it”
