One of our readers brought this singer to our attention and we thought you might find his choice of headgear very interesting. His name is Richie Giese and his musical project is Social Repose, listed under the Electronic Dance Pop genre. Now this post isn't about his music, it's about his outfit and why he chooses to wear this headdress. It seems that many people have approached him about the headdress, saying that it was offensive to Natives and he shouldn't be wearing it. So many in fact that he feels the need to justify his use of the headdress in this video.
Take a listen below:

So it seems that he has made up his mind and is not budging on the issue. He's even selling t-shirts to his fans that have a cartoon version of his likeness with the headdress on, so I'm assuming he's not taking this off any time soon. What would you say to him if you met up with him in person? Feel free to sound off on his fan page at https://www.facebook.com/SocialRepose
