Azealia Banks Responds to Skin Bleaching Criticism
Azealia Banks is bleaching her skin and isn’t ashamed to admit it….However, the American rapper has defended her decision after being called out for her lighter skin colour. She said in a video she posted:
What’s the difference between getting a nose job and changing your skin color? What’s the difference between getting a hair weave and changing your skin color? There really isn’t a difference. For so many people to say that [me wanting to lighten my skin] negates anything I’ve said about the state of Blackness in America is ignorant,” she said.
“I think it’s contradictory — especially since so many of our favorite stars have lightened their skin. Some of my favorite artists — look at Diana Ross. I would never say that Diana Ross is any less of an artist because her skin is lighter. Like, come on! hat was the style! That was the 70s, disco-fever style. Who cares?”
