Katy Perry chosen to be an ambassador for the British Asian Trust

The pop star, who is neither British nor Asian, has been appointed to the charity by Prince Charles, causing some to question whether she has the right credentials

Katy Perry and Prince Charles have been slammed after she was appointed ambassador for the British Asian Trust Children’s Protection Fund. – despite not being British or Asian.

The Prince of Wales – founder of the organisation – announced the pop star’s new role at a black tie reception in London last night.

The Firework hitmaker said “India is a place I have a magnetic connection with, so I’m excited to be part of the work of helping the children of S. Asia” and she hoped to ‘help shine my light on the work that the British Asian Trust will be doing in South Asia’.


But the appointment has provoked outrage online, with many criticising the choice of Perry for a role.
