Paloma Faith voices concerns about The Little Mermaid storyline, emphasizing the importance of not sacrificing one’s voice and powers for love. Despite facing backlash, she acknowledges Halle Bailey’s performance. Discover more about her perspective and past admiration for the animated film.
Paloma Faith, a renowned singer and actress known for her roles in Pennyworth and Dangerous Liaisons, recently expressed her concerns about The Little Mermaid storyline. In a now-deleted Instagram post captured by Metro, she emphasized her perspective as a mother of girls and her desire not to promote the idea of sacrificing one’s voice and powers for the sake of love.
Faith’s criticism revolves around the central plot of The Little Mermaid, where a mermaid named Ariel yearns to live on land. In her pursuit of Prince Eric’s affection, Ariel strikes a bargain with the sea witch Ursula, trading her voice for the ability to walk on land.
While Faith wasn’t enthusiastic about Ariel’s romantic quest, she did acknowledge the commendable performance by Halle Bailey, who portrays the little mermaid in the upcoming film adaptation.
Despite her criticism, Faith faced significant backlash for her comments regarding The Little Mermaid, with many questioning her awareness of the story’s premise. Interestingly, it appears that Faith had once expressed admiration for the animated version of The Little Mermaid back in 2009. In a tweet from that time, she wrote, “When I grow up, I want to be the little mermaid.”
