BRANDY AND RAY J HAVE NO ISSUE WITH KIM KARDASHIAN'S CORNROWS: In an interview with The Talk, Brandy and Ray J say that don't think Kim Kardashian wearing cornrows are cultural appropriation. Brandy said, “I don’t think that she’s guilty. I definitely believe in that, but I think it’s reaching a little bit for people to say that. I mean, it’s great. I love braids. I think everybody should have braids, but I think we’re going too far with that with her.” Ray J added, “I got nothing but respect. I just think that if you are paying homage to another culture by, you know, rocking the braids, I think it’s a compliment.”
