A Kurdish Pop Star Risked Her Life for an Anti-ISIS Music Video Shot 2 Miles From Rebels - Mic

Pop artist Helly Luv is seemingly full of contradictions: She’s outspoken about anti-violence, but fired a shell at an Islamic State settlement while filming a music video. She was born in the conservative Iran, but leads a life in the West as a revolutionary pop star. For her, music is political. This is why she insisted on filming the music video for her song “Revolution” in her ethnic home of northern Iraq. “If I can fight against them with my music, then my song is as powerful as or more powerful than their weapons.”
