It’s nothing new for an individual to claim a belief system, practicing certain traditions, ethics and morals, but then do something that conflicts with said belief system. With that being said, many are confused by rapper Azealia Banks and her latest confession. After major speculation, Banks has reportedly took to Instagram to admit to bleaching her skin and apparently feels that it’s okay because her vagina hasn’t changed colors. Yea, you read that correctly. After setting up a reputation for being “pro-black,” the controversial artist has altered her God-given skin complexion.
The infamous website Bossip recently reported that luxury skincare line Whitenicious is behind Ms. Banks’ new and brighter skin complexion. The company posted Azealia on their Instagram account.
This isn’t the first time Azealia has been in the headlines regarding skin bleaching. She previously took to twitter to comment on Diana Ross, K. Michelle and Lil Kim’s complexions.
Banks is no stranger to adversity by any means. She is currently in a legal situation for assaulting security at a club in New York and biting a female guard’s breast. From public offensive comments, social media suspensions, endorsing Donald Trump and lawsuit threats, Azealia Banks apparently has no problem saying and doing exactly what she wants, regardless the consequence. Clearly, Banks dances to a rhythm all her own; maybe one day we’ll be able to understand the tune.
