The gossip folks have been saying that afro-centric R&B soul singer India Arie has been lightening her skin. The first time I heard that, I definitely didn’t believe it. The artwork for her new single “Cocoa Butter” does show a lighter version of the “Brown Skin” singer, however, I chalked it up to lighting not lightening!
I was right, check her response to the lightening rumors:
Personally speaking! I’m happy to say I have NOT BLEACHED my skin. ROTF at the thought.
1. I wouldn’t endanger my health that way
2. I’m so in love with myself I have no DESIRE to BLEACH myself. Lol
3. The GLOW you see IS (magnificent) lighting
4. THE LIGHT you see, well that’s all ME!
Politically speaking racism/colorism in the black community is a MUUUUUUUCH large.#SongVersation #skinversaton THAT I’d LOVE to “shed light on”..that conversation IS REAL, …let’s keep talking.
