Kenyan Model Accuses Nicki Minaj & Rihanna of Lightening Their Skin
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Another day, more skin lightening accusations. Many of today’s biggest black female celebrities are targeted for vicious skin lightening rumors, especially if they were born with a lighter skin tone.
Kenyan model and socialite Vera Sidika is currently under fire for lightening her skin, so she’s decided to throw Rihanna and Nicki Minaj under a bus to save herself.
In an interview with #TheTrend, she says people shouldn’t be upset she decided to lighten her skin, especially since Nicki Minaj and Rihanna have done the same thing:
“Looking good is my business. My body is my business, nobody else’s but mine. Nicki Minaj and Rihanna did it. You just have to do it the right way.”
We’re assuming Vera isn’t hip to Rihanna and Nicki Minaj’s skills in getting folks together on Twitter. Regardless, the model reportedly spent a whooping $170,000 for a lighter complexion.
