After Tameka “Tiny” Harris revealed on Instagram then deleted it, only to later repost it that she had permanently changed her eye color many of her followers were outraged. She was accused of being “insecure”, “self-hating”, and “wanting to look like a white woman”. Now, Tiny is finally addressing the hate and says it’s her body and she can do what she wants.

T.I.’s wife stopped by Good Morning America and talked at length about the Brightocular eye color changing procedure she had done in Africa. While speaking to Deborah Roberts, Harris explained that the operation, which is illegal in the U.S., is pretty simple. “They go into the eye and they make a little slit. They take an implant and it’s folded up. They open it [and] spread it over your eye. They told me that the procedure was going to be quick, five to 10 minutes an eye. They woke me up. It was very blurry, then it kind of fades in.” The “What The F*ck You Gon Do” singer added that she chose to do such a drastic change because, “I just wanted to do something different,” she said. “And I have the right to do that. It’s my body.”

While Tameka loves her new ice gray eyes, her hubby Tip was slow to get on board. “He was like, ‘What are you doing?'” Harris said, adding that now the rapper is OK with the change. “He loves them,” she said. “He’s OK with it as long as I’m healthy and don’t have any problems.”

And speaking of problems, Tiny claims that Brightocular has had almost a 100% success rate, GMA spoke to Dr. James C. Tsai, president of New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, who cited several potential risks. “These risks can be sight-threatening and can include glaucoma, cataract and corneal problems,” Tsai stated. Yeesh!

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Published

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
