One Kenyan model has pegged Nicki Minaj and Rihanna as two hot artists who’ve turned to skin bleaching to alter their looks.
During a chat with #TheTrend, Vera Sidika said that she doesn’t see a problem with lightening her skin. The model has recently come under fire for the practice; she’s supposedly spent $170,000 on changing her complexion.
To legitamize her decision, Vera stated that she only did it to improve her own career, which requires her to conform to narrow, euro-centric standards of beauty. Then she accused Nicki and Rihanna of bleaching their skin as well.
“Looking good is my business. My body is my business, nobody else’s but mine,” she said in her own defense before claiming the A-list artists did the same thing. “Nicki Minaj and Rihanna did it. You just have to do it the right way.”
Neither Nicki nor Rihanna have spoken out on the accusations at this time. If and when they do, it’s likely they’ll address the matter on Twitter, as each of them love to do!
