Tyga, Wendy Williams and Love and Hip Hop: Miami star Amara La Negra were spotted out and about on Thursday and Friday. Amara, pictured far right, touched down at LAX airport and smiled from ear-to-ear as she got a warm welcome from fans and paparazzi that recognized her signature afro wig.

Amara La Negra arrives in LA with her Afro Wig in full bloom

Amara, a 27-year-old Dominican, caught flack from black Americans who objected to her saying her afro blow out wig was real. Her co-star, Young Hollywood, got death threats after he suggested she take off the wig and switch up her style to look more like American singer Beyonce Knowles.

    Wendy good at masking stress.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Right down to Tyga’s SOCKS…dayum can that child live? He ain’t bothering NOBODY!!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Love the red coat. Imma reserve my opinion on Black Salt Water until I find out more about her.

  • Anonymouse

    As we all should be. Life’s too short to walk around looking stressed.

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    That red coat is everything. My God!

  • pecancandy

    Who is Black Salt Water

  • Rayne

    Tyga’s mans purse ? is cute.

  • Dahl

    Love that red trench! Wendy should always wear makeup, she’s s fright without it. Tyga had a new boo. I thought the other one would last forever. And La Negra is a cutie…

  • Soda

    Why is Tyga’s manfriend walking around with money in his hand? He has a purse.

  • NicoleZee

    Hola! Amara is just too gorgeous for words! Love her spirit and style. Adorbs! Muy bonita!

  • Phyllis

    Amara was much more beautiful when her mouth was shut… saw her modeling about 2 years ago and she was amazing, but she is starting to get amberrosing on me. #silenceisgoldenboo #teamtoomuch #baskeninyourprettyboo

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Who did LaNegra catch flack from? Wig or no wig, the lady is gorgeous! . What’s unique about LaNegra is that she’s actually talented.

  • NicoleZee

    Why do you feel she should be silenced, because she is an Afro Latina??? I don’t get why people are hating her so much. All she wants to do is continue to live her dream of being a singer and cross over into the American market and do very well. I am getting sick and f*cking tired of all the hate that Afro-Latinas/Latinos are receiving and I’m just black! My son is Afro-Latino so I have to one day explain to him how there are many sick pieces of shit in this world that hate others just because of skin color or where they come from. Sick and ignorant world we live in. But I can relate to Amara to a certain extent because I have a black/Hispanic child and I have gotten nothing but hate since giving birth to him. Racist people belong in hell along with the rapists, child molesters, and abusers. Disgusting!

  • NicoleZee

    Dumb ass music producer Young Hollywood and other racist pieces of shit. The woman is gorgeous, and it has nothing to do with her skin color. She is just simply beautiful and talented. I hope she continues to have success and ignores the haters.

  • Dowoop

    Most black people have to explain this to their kids. Just curious but did you ever receive hate yourself for being black or is it just directed toward your son?

  • ?Royalty?

    “Amara…. .got a warm welcome from fans and paparazzi who recognizeed her signature afro wig”

    I can’t. ????

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Amara is gorgeous. I heard a couple of clips of her music– she’s talented.

    There is another chick on LHHM that has an A name. Kinda strong in the face. Anyways, I heard a clip of her singing and she is actually talented as well.

    I don’t watch any of the LHH’s, but hopefully these women can use the exposure to their benefit like Cardi B.

  • Phyllis

    No hate for AFRO latinas.. my deal is that she spoke on it and enough is enough. We get it. There is discrimination. We are still dealing with this upon our African American community. I first discovered her when she was just modeling some years back. She’s truly a beauty . I want her to remain Great despite all this. But she must keep her mouth shut to do that in my opinion.. sometime you can overtalk after already getting your point across .. and she is doing just that .,

  • CaramelDrop

    SOB’s around the world AND stateside!!! Since being natural it grinds my gears is when other BLACK people ask me what I’m mixed with because of my hair texture. I used to say something smart like “black and nicca”. Now, I totally ignore anyone that asks. I just don’t get other black people that refuse to grasp the concept that we are all multifaceted – there is no single black prototype.

  • NicoleZee

    Oh of course! I’ve experienced racism, even from Hispanics and from my son’s father who is also Hispanic, but I don’t have hate in my heart for anyone due to their race or ethnicity. If I hate someone it is because of their character, or lack thereof. But since I’ve become a mum, EVERY time I’m out with my son there is always one asshole or more that stares or whispers or tries to figure out if he is black or they ask dumb questions like is he Asian or ask what is he. He IS black, but he is also Latino. My mom is a wonderful support system for me. She doesn’t play about her grandkids and she taught me to just ignore ignorant people. My son is a blessing, how he looks or who his father is has no bearing and will NEVER have any bearing on how I treat him! I wasn’t supposed to be able to conceive, but look what happened! A healthy (and difficult) pregnancy I carried to term and the delivery of my beautiful little boy. Won’t he do it??!!

  • SayWhatNow?

    Go ahead and put that purse strap on your shoulder, holding it in your hand does not make it any less of a purse!

  • NicoleZee

    I love your spirit :)! I will never understand why dummies care how someone wears their hair. I happen to think that many natural styles are beautiful. I’m not quite ready to go natural but I probably will one day. I’ve had a relaxer since childhood and I love wearing my bob hairstyle. But to each their very own. Many women have told me how they LOVE their natural hair and would never go back to relaxers or weaves!!! Good for them, no terrible chemicals that smell horrible and no curling irons either! You are VERY smart to ignore people, most ignorant people will remain that way sadly. I’ve learned that what is most important is how you feel about yourself, not what anyone else thinks!!!!!!!

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Young Hollywood es pendejo.

  • NicoleZee

    What???? No, I disagree, I think she should shout it to the rooftops because she is not going anywhere, neither is anyone else that represents her ethnicity or culture. I don’t feel anyone should be silenced, ever. Some pieces of shit, even some of the sickos that come to this blog, have told me the same about my survival stories, but if I want to discuss how I survived sexual assault, domestic violence, and childbirth for example, that is MY right. That’s the problem with society, we do not discuss certain issues often enough, that’s why those issues will continue to be problem. God has kept me here when He didn’t have to and at times when I didn’t want to be here. So if people get uncomfortable hearing about the hell I have been through, or hearing about how Amara appreciates being black AND Latina, then that is THEIR problem to deal with. Sad.

  • Ela

    Lol. Its become so normal I didnt even notice.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    It’s mainly lightskin women fact. My cousin and her friend is light and they were hating on her. That woman is gorgeous with a bad body and real hair. Smdh people hate to see a stunning dark or brown.

  • NicoleZee

    Exactly! Racism should NEVER be tolerated, so VH1 needs to fire him. If you give these sickos a platform to be even more hateful, they will use it to their full advantage. Hateful people secretly hate themselves and have a lot of issues. I wouldn’t be surprised if Young Hollywood suffers from some form of mental illness. Sick POS!

  • NicoleZee

    You think more light skinned people hate her??? Why???? I’ve heard that before a lot. I don’t get why we cannot just support each other. What difference does it make what someone’s skin tone is??? However, I think a lot of black people form these cliques and if you re biracial or mixed and still identify as black or could, then they take issue with that. Who gives a sh*t??? My son is growing up in a very sick world. I just hope he turns out to be better, more respectful, and kinder than most people. Sad.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Yes I do think it’s that because bum rappers gased them so they think brown and dark is not suppose to be gorgeous. Ive always been told I look like Liya Kebede and Tika. I stay with haters. Honestly. I agree with you though. It’s sick.

  • Phyllis

    Ehhhh. Share our World. This is some mess we have dealt with since the slavery days . . And some of us petty black folks are dealing with the light skin vs. dark skin mess today. It seems to be going nowhere. Like I said , the mess that she’s talking about is nothing new to us. Mona Scott is just making it visible in the AFRO Latino world. Nothing will change until we get rid of the Willie Lynch Syndrome we have been brought up on..

  • Coy little wink

    The afro makes her stand out…we don’t need another beyonce

  • NeverSurprised

    I don’t know this LaNegra person, but she is stunning!. I love a really dark black women with chiseled features. She reminds me of Naomi Sims or even Kenya Moore. Beautiful woman.

  • C Mack

    Right! I’m light skinned and I think Amara is beautiful af!

  • Omega

    Shes dope, watch the show. Shes a good representation of a black queen, not these other self hating hair helmet wearing chickz

  • Omega

    You dont represent the opinion of all your fellow lightskins, calm down sir.

  • Ni Ni

    Light skinned here too but I’m not a high yella…maybe its the high yellas thats hating on her lol…she’s gorgeous!

  • C Mack

    But I was generalized with the rest of them

  • Ni Ni

    I do notice it and i hate that so many brothers in the media ignore beautiful brown skinned women.

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    I cannot see anything masculine about Tyga.

  • Li

    I can’t stand her fake wig and she knows it’s a wig. That AINT her hair.

  • Ni Ni

    I caught a glimpse of the miami show the other night trying to catch amara, but only saw some woman with a big azz and and a bunch of women in the strip club.

  • NicoleZee

    Most men are driven by ignorance. Most dudes barely or don’t even bathe and yet they talking about they want a gorgeous light skinned woman when they look and smell like microwaved ass!! FOH! Sad.

  • Ni Ni

    Lmao NicoleZee, you are a mess! I wish they would just grow up and let all that foolishness go.

  • Erin

    I was with you until you said “other hair helmet wearing…..” thats a wig and just about the biggest hair helmet I’ve ever seen. She’s cute but that aint her hair.

  • NicoleZee

    When my dark brown skinned grandmother had my dark skinned uncle in the 60s, one of my grandfather’s (he was light skinned) arrogant sisters had the nerve to ask if my uncle was really my grandfather’s child. Now my grandmother was a kind Christian woman so she never let what people say affect her. Had that been me, I definitely would have gotten an assault and battery charge! My grandfather loved and married my grandmother and never cared that she is darker. Most of my grandfather’s sisters did not like my grandmother because she was darker and because she was well liked by most people. Till this day I don’t f*ck with his side of the family because they are phony and have elitist attitudes. My grandmother was beautiful and they made a beautiful couple, God rest their souls.

    I am glad you realize how beautiful you are in spite of ignorant people that need to get a hobby and a life. Sad times we live in, very sad.

  • NicoleZee

    Now Ni Ni, you know men are nasty creatures! But I can’t stand when men have all these requirements in order for a woman to be with them but yet they’re beyond gross and ugly and don’t have anything to offer. They have no right to criticize a woman’s looks or lifestyle in any way. Sickos!

  • NicoleZee

    Charlamagne Tha God calls Mona a pimp! She is the one allowing these sickos on TV. She happens to be black and allows a racist POS to have a platform on the show she created and produces. No word on whether Young Hollywood has been fired. I hate the way some people get exploited on her shows. However, these people CHOOSE to go on TV acting like they belong in a city zoo. Grown women fighting over POS niggas. I have never in my life seen such foolishness.

  • NicoleZee

    The booty movement needs to end. Women are risking their lives with surgeries and injections because they have severely low self-esteem. Obesity is not cool or or healthy. I would imagine a bigger behind causes health and hygiene issues. Gross and sad. Getting a surgery you don’t in fact need??? Human stupidity at its best.

  • NicoleZee

    He’s bisexual and ashamed. Everyone knows it but he pretends we don’t. What a woman wants with a gay or bi man is beyond me unless she also participates in that lifestyle. Nothing would turn me on or impress me about a man who sleeps with men. The hell???

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Thank you!!!!?

  • Ni Ni

    I used to want me a booty chile, not one like hers though. Im glad i grew out of that mindset . Most of the women thats getting surgery already have big behinds

  • Guest

    Not microwaved ass, lol dead!

  • Guest©

    So because AA’S are still dealing with racism this woman can’t speak on her experiences as a dark skin latna?!? She’s actually shedding light on the colorism issue in the Caribbean. You do realize that slaves were take to the Caribbean as well. I hope she continues to shed light on her struggles and opens the doors for pther proud black latinos.

  • Fire & Ice

    I was just telling my sister this. Ugh these young chicks have backsides, that look like an old woman body.

  • Fire & Ice

    Yes she’s gorgeous! Plus those are her real eyes. Didn’t know that, until I saw her childhood pics online.

  • NeverSurprised

    Everyone on these shows looks the same with the light skin and long lacefront weaves. I just LOOOVE seeing a dark-skinned beauty like her. I hope she gets a lot more exposure.

  • Phyllis

    Check this… we have heard her speak on this… and we continuously hear her speak on it. We have been dealing with this struggle with African Americans for the longest time. She spoke on it, now leave it alone. Mona is making this as Amara’s main platform on the show. It’s getting old and way too familiar .

  • Phyllis

    I definitely ageee with you NicoleZee..

  • NeverSurprised

    I think Tika is gorgeous.

  • Vicki White

    This is a blalent most ignorant comment ever…it’s sad like no logic.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    Amara is an american black woman of afro Dominican descent. She was born in miami Florida. So she’s an american , not an immigrant. She has a accent due to her being raised by her Spanish speaking black Dominican mother. She’s a black woman with two foreigner black parents. I’m confused as to why y’all hating on her. She has evey right to protest the racism in the latin community. Stop hating!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    Amara is a Dominican american, she was born in florida! The issues with in the AA community affect her black ass too. Some of y’all AA are ignorant and fucking stupid! Some of y’all act as if black people only live in America. Y’all really act as if only y’all went though slavery. If your slow ass picked up a book you’d see that blacks in the Americas were the last to experience slavery. Infact y’all got the idea to rebel from the slaves in the Caribbean. Get over yourself and pick up a book!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    It’s truth!

  • keimaguire

    from my personal experience light skin women don’t like to see pretty dark skin women, they think we’re all supposed to be ugly..and if you’re dark skin pretty with so called “good or long hair” they’ll really hate you.. i had one tell me “your hair is longer than hers and i’m light skin”..as if skin tone determines the length and texture of hair.. all my chocolate friends have curly textured long hair..

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    It is ridiculous.

  • Guest©

    Personally I’d rather have her try to break boundaries and open doors for other black aka afro Latinos than see those tired d listers and their fake story lines. Her struggle is real too. Let’s not have a pissing match on whose pain is worse, lol.

  • leapyearpisces

    I understand what you mean, basically you are saying that she needs to keep an air of mystery about her, that’s what makes her alluring. Don’t give the public too much, too soon, keep a level of mystery to keep people wanting to know more about her.

  • Phyllis

    Exactly!!!!

  • Phyllis

    Enlighten me… what book do you suggest Sister?

  • Bonita Johnson

    Black boat shoes-????

  • Sinny

    Those contacts are NOT her real eyes, please don’t make me post the pic of her, not the one where she looked like she was either a preteen or teenager; but the one when she was a little girl. You people are so gullibly!

  • Sinny

    They ain’t even what the standard of “light skin” is considered. I would say caramel at best; at least judging from the pics. But people kill me with the colorism bullshit. My friend’s kids used to call me “light skin” and I had to correct them and let them know; I’m just a different shade than them, and that all shades of black are beautiful. Plus I’m more caramel than anything. Shit, I’m Black and I’m proud. Period; thee end!

  • tintin

    I’m supposedly caramel too and my darker friend said I’m lucky I never had to go through the problems she did in highschool because I’m in the middle. But now my son who is darker questions me on why I’m so peach as he says and he s so dark. I had to explain to him the beauty of black coming in all shades. It’s sad what black ppl have to go through, worse when our own can be the issue. I went to Jamauca and women kept staring at me and asking me what bleaching cream I use..never in my life have I used that crap not will I ever. Black is beautiful no matter the shade and many black ppl need to love themselves more

  • tintin

    I went to the club with a friend of mine…this fool was talking to her and then u know the ignorant line these niccas say “u look good for a dark skin ting.. ” this bish was giggling like a fool ready to give the digits. I pulled her away before anything could be exchanged. She just didn’t get it

  • Blah Blahhhhh

    You lost me when you said helmet…..She is wearing an afro wig. She got booty shots…her only difference is she is extremely dark in color.

  • Dafuggj

    I am a long time lurker and when I read some of these comments, I had to make my voice heard!

    First off, I am a light skin black American woman! I think that this woman is beautiful! As most others do as well.

    Black on Black racism is REAL. I have been dealing with it, since I was born. How are we going to deal with the Dave Dukes, Donald Trumps when you all should be welcoming each other shameful!

    And I’m thru!!
    Peace love no hate!

  • MRiGOThim

    You’d be surprised how many women put up with gay/bi men just to have a man…I was talking to this guy & found out he had like 3 kids & a wife. She called me “I’m A GUY” & said I just wanna know what’s going on with you & my husband bcuz he won’t tell me anything!!!

  • Ms Thang

    I’m pretty sure she knows that it’s a wig since she’s the one that put it on HER head.

  • Ms Thang

    Did she say that she got booty shots or are you making stuff up?

  • T3

    It’s their soul that needs surgery. I’m no Beyonce stan but she got that right! Such a shame Pretty Hurts wasn’t in radio rotation.

  • Fire & Ice

    The picture that I saw online, looks like she may have been between 11 or 12. Real eyes or not, she’s still gorgeous!!!

  • Sinny

    The questions was never about her looks. She’s definitely stunning; however, those are not her real eyes, nor is that afro her real hair. She’s definitely a beauty though! But she definitely needs a stylist! Tell me I’m lying?!??

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Smdh lol

  • LEAVE AMARA ALONE!

    ATTENTION: If you watched her video with her mother taking her hair down from braids, YOU will see this could be her hair with a few ad ins,
    when you mother finished, this big afro is what it looked like…LEAVE THIS GIRL ALONE………..SHE IS GORGEOUS!

  • SHE IS BEAUTIFUL!

    I’m very light skinned, and when I first saw her I said under my breath, “she’s gorgeous”……so stop with the lt skin dark skin crap.
    Latina’s are just as racist against their own dark skin people than we are against ours.

  • BS!

    NOT TRUE, stop putting all skinned women in you BS experiences!!

  • BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL!

    ‘SOME’, dark skinned women have a complex, and low self esteem and want to blame everybody else about the way they feel about their skin color, they are the one’s always bitching and talking negative.

  • geminimommy

    Kylie got them edges together!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    It’s true and I hope I didn’t offend anyone. We all need to come together. Beautiful women is in all complexions. Peace!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I’m speaking from experience. Thanks for your input. Beautiful is in all shades.

  • Blah Blahhhhh

    she has been augmented

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    why silence her? do you want to be silenced about your experiences? Let her tell her truth.. if you dont.. simply stop listening,, and once you do.. YOU BECOME THE PROBLEM,,,

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    I suggest you pick up “Breaking the curse of Willie Lynch

  • EMILY POST

    Well how many weeks did it take for them to be negative on one of the most beautiful women I have seen on television in the last decade.. One of the few true exotic looking melanated women on television. She is gorgeous and her look is unique… especially for American television. Of course she is going to receive hate, of course they are going to find anything to come at her about. NOw she cant tell her truth maybe because she is on VH1 and a Mona scott young show and they drag black women… If she was biracial we would have to hear the story of how conflicted and confused life is for them a million times.. How many times has Hollywood told the story of the tragic Mullato…
    Now people want to pretend like Colorism does not exist… in television film music etc and she doesnt have the right to bring it up?? Really… She has every right to bring it up as much as its practiced under the invisible guise of Preferance. Now we prefer her to speak her truth… The Entertainment industry is trained to discredit dark women to chose somebody else to always make them the background the side kick.
    NWAs Casting call tells you what they think about black women in Hollywood because thats the casting call you know about…
    It makes people uncomfortable because the only reason why some of those women are present is because colorism exists. They are as basic and lame and as untalented as they come but the American Negros constant need to try to blend in with white people will forever make them present.
    She wins the award for being different. Nobody on television looks like her and the closet one on television that looks like her is Kenya Moore.

  • Long Live ????í? ?

    Everything is not racism and she looks like Bozo the clown ? with that wig on.

  • Long Live ????í? ?

    People are allowed to have their own perspectives and opinions. He should not be fired for having a mind.

  • NicoleZee

    Are you on meth or coke or crack?? Which one??? Young Hollywood is racist, the sad thing is that he is also Hispanic so he hates his own people just as he hates himself. There is no excuse for racism. Ignoring it or pretending it doesn’t exist will not resolve the issues that people have with hate. It’s not funny or cute, it’s sick and sad that anyone can hate or belittle someone due to their race or ethnicity. Racists are sick in the head just like rapists and child molesters and just like you. FOH!

  • StayathomeMom

    Seriously is it a wig? I didn’t think it was. I need to know because I want to know how to achieve the look with my fro. I hope it’s not a wig.
