India Arie: I Did Not Bleach My Skin

Published

on

Soul singer India Arie is firing back against allegations that she’s bleached her skin. The controversy erupted after Arie’s skin appeared brighter on the cover of her latest single, “Cocoa Butter.”

Arie isn’t the first artist to be accused of intentionally lightening their skin: Tempestt Bledsoe, Iman, Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and the late Michael Jackson also dealt with similar rumors. Thankfully Arie, the songstress behind hits like “Brown Skin”, publicly addressed the nonsense online.

“Personally speaking! I’m happy to say I have NOT BLEACHED my skin LOL! ROTF at the thought,” she writes. “I wouldn’t endanger my health that way,” she continues, adding, “I’m so in love with myself I have no DESIRE to BLEACH myself.”

The Grammy Award-winner also explained what may have caused her skin to appear lighter in the artwork. “The GLOW you see IS (magnificent) lighting. THE LIGHT you see, well thats all ME!!”

Glad she cleared that up. Check out the artwork below.

DMX Is Clean, Sober And Plans To Stay That Way!

It’s a new dawn, a new day … DMX is sober!

The rapper’s lengthy history with drug abuse has been well documented by his many arrest and sometimes bizarre behavior, but Dark Man X is putting all of that behind him.

X has been in a treatment facility since late August and has been doing really well. The rapper opted for rehab instead of house arrest in order to improve his chances of kicking his drug habit and it looks like it may have worked.

Sources tell TMZ, the program is almost complete, but x will probably stay another 30 days since he’s been responding so well. X has even been able to take day trips with a friend to a nearby town.

Congrats to DMX!
