Spice

Jamaican dancehall star Spice angered her social media followers by continuing to wear light makeup and live life as a LSLH (light-skinned, long hair) woman. The reality TV star called out the hypocrisy of dark skinned people bleaching their skin in her new music video "Black Hypocrisy".

Spice

But days after her music video debuted, Spice is still wearing makeup to cover her cocoa brown skin -- which infuriates her fans.

The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star posted a photo on her Instagram page on Monday, along with the caption:

"On my way to wash my van, but want you to know that I see all the comments. Now every one begging me back for the "Black" spice but did they appreciate the "black" spice when i was repping for dark skin women for 30 years."

Spice shamed her fans for criticizing her newly lightened skin, while at the same time shaming her for being Black.

"So should i haunt you with #coconutmilk for 30 more years ? I hear some say ok spice we get it now and i learn my lesson but have you ? They say it's Make up but is it ? Captured mix tape drops this friday Nov 2nd and so will the truth."

But her fans were not impressed.

One IG user wrote: "I'm just wondering if she hasn't become a hypocrite herself? I mean she says she's proud of herself and loves herself but she took off the whole of her skin".

Another IG user wrote:

"I just feel like after your message you should go back to your normal skin to stand on it ....how you gone tell black girls love they skin but go and bleach yours come on man yess we get it now go back black spice !!!"

Others say Spice loves the attention she's receiving as a LSLH woman, and she may never go back to Black.

Spice's mixtape drops on Friday, Nov 2nd.

    What ever happened to loving one's own self? I learned a long time ago as a biracial woman that not everyone would appreciate who I am for a variety of reasons (ppl assume I think I'm better than them, having to "prove: my blackness...). At the end of the day we ALL have to find peace with who we are regardless of what others think.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Ut Oh....yall sure that was just a prop

  • hi-liter

    ? Talkin bout “They say it’s makeup but is it?”...girl yes we know it’s indeed makeup. Hah azz woulda had to be dipped in hot Crisco to get so light so fast. I know she FN up everything she touches with that shat all over her. Everybody don’t look good with ashy pale azz skin.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. This is funny to me.

  • RealATLPeach36

    That’s the 1st concern you’re not 30 or 30ish...

  • Appplesauce

    Looking at that first picture and gosh she got some big a$$ hands, them tips don’t make it no better. Somebody didn’t love her enough growing up. Bleaching to that extreme has never advanced anybody’s career. She looks like something from Ripley’s believe or not. Self love is the best love.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Excellent statement .... I don't need to speak on this ... summed it up ... You are beautiful just the way you are ..... cues Christina Aguilera song .... you are beautiful no matter what they say ... yes words can bring you down ....... see clip message still applies https://youtu.be/eAfyFTzZDMM

  • Guest©

    Exactly!!! Confidence is something that radiates from your soul. Also I've seen ppl who were not classically beautiful YET they had the most beautifual souls.

  • ??Anna??

    Who says otherwise ?

  • Yvonne79

    I'm sure once the album drops Friday she'll wash all of this off.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Tis awesome

  • ClaireHuxtable

    You couldn't help wanting to be around them.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    We've wasted too much time disrespecting each other over color.

  • MythCalledLove

    I don't know what the hell happened. It use to be frowned upon. Now its like techniques to make it work faster. Check YouTube and even the male artist do it. Walking around look cross between funeral makeup & Kermit the frog. This trend all over the world now. But the maintenance & can't stay in the sun long. They dont care. Spice does it thru makeup & photo shop. Anybody hv bleach skin not foolin nobody. Your ankles & thighs one color. Ah fool dem (hard not writing in patois)

  • Reina1718

    Spice they aint care b4 or after

  • ??Anna??

    Exactly

  • Nathan Hastings

    Whew Chile...

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    I agree and I say the same thing about why we call our selves the N- word.

    WHY?

    P.S. I peeped the part you wrote about" juicy" as a Strong hetero Black Male
    I say " YES INDEED"

  • CookieMobster

    Most white people want to be tan some,dark skin,folks want to be light skinned. Why can't folks just love the skin they're in?

  • Vonn

    Let this fool, be a fool. She seems to be good at it.

  • Mister Fantastic

    You have bills to pay, rent is due, your kids are being hunted by law enforcement, politicians are inciting a race war, grown people are being sold into servitude and THIS makes you angry?

  • Vonn

    It's ten times better than fergie's original caterwauling.

  • Malcom Flex

    LOL she's working the press like a pro I bet the Kartrashians are jealous.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I suspect that most of the people getting angry about this probably don't vote anyway.

  • Malcom Flex

    Is this from a movie? I know it's not Mike...

  • Mister Fantastic

    I concur.

  • GrapeCrush

    I hope she’s doing this for the publicity and promotion of her mix tape; cause if not...baybeeee ??????????....just no...

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Me?? U must wanna get into some trouble l0l!

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    She finally got the social media attention she has been trying to get through her music....but I am ready for her to wash that off...it makes me sad cuz I want us to LOVE our chocolate sisters

  • smartchickfl

    Baby what is you doing??

  • the guest

    I hear hurt in her voice. She feels betrayed. That her standing up for dark skin was unappreciated and she struggled. So now she's paying folks back by abandoning the dark skin message, being out for self, and getting paid.

  • the guest

    Amen.

  • Rayne

    This lady is fine ass hell without all that clown isht! Now go in there and take a bath ?

  • leapyearpisces

    As a dark-skinned , chocolate girl, I think dark-skinned people need to STOP bleaching because GOD made us this way, because HE KNEW we would look good / BETTER that way. I have NEVER seen a dark-skinned person who bleached their skin look BETTER with the lighter skin. I know I, would not make an attractive redbone. There are a lot of benefits to being dark, ask any light-skinned person who has suffered with acne or any type of scarring.

  • more

    I want to take it off ASAP!!!

  • B.Loveitt

    When I went to read the article...I thought it was Jay-z at first.

  • the chosen one

    You told the truth. Be happy in your own skin.

  • the chosen one

    Omg. Laughing like crazy.

  • the chosen one

    I am light skinned and to be honest, every shade of black is beautiful. There is nothing wrong with being either tone because in my opinion, I think that the chocolate brothers have it going on. I LOVE a black azz man. Power to the chocolates.

  • leapyearpisces

    Absolutely! I wasn't trying to imply anything is wrong with being light, because it's not, my point was darkskinned people need to realize they look better dark, because everyone that I seen that bleached, look like walking corpses. I think YOU said it best though, be happy in your own skin.

    they are probably concocting a plan to wear extra bronzer to gain attention

  • Judge Mental Will

    She love it..

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    She is a fool I saw her at Phipps a few days ago and she is black as she always have been..she sitting there letting folks paint her body for controversy

  • Lady” Youngblood

    She looks like something out of the movie white chics, it don’t look good on her at all. They called my mother in father kids, me in my brothers and sisters rainbow kids because we are all different shades of black same mother in father some of us are light Carmel chocolate some dark chocolate and my mom always told us never focus on color. I have a light skin brother look good a dark skin brother he look good and vice verse with my sister. When I see stuff like this I understand that they didn’t come from a strong background. These are weak minded people, Gullible, followers instead of being a leader. I look at these people like they have issues, I look at you like you not feeling yourself, I look at you like I can easily Intimidate you.And with that I can easily control you. I prey on y’all weak MF,

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    in my city Atl it’s the light skinned chicks that are the most sought after

  • LYRICS

    Spice, it don't look good! *in my Tony Matterhon voice* Oh the benefits of being a darky, dutch pot, night, whatever our beautiful sleekness is referred to, LOVE IT AND OWN IT!! Spice may be gearing us up for what she is potentially about to do......permanently! I understand the message, OK, NP, but let's keep in mind that she has now made it to the "mainstream", so she may be facing some sort of pressure regarding her color. If so, AND WHAT!!!?? My momma taught my lil' sister and I to LOVE OUR DARK SKIN! My lil' bro is the "light skin" one and he was taught the same! No matter what, LOVE YOU! I'm not buying this PR ish she's selling!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    She paints that white make up on her body. Paints!

  • SpillyNillie

    It amazes me how people get so consumed with what other folks do. Her azz could walk around mint green and I wouldn't give 2 flucks....

  • SpiceGirl

  • Sdot33

    she's fake body and skin anyhoo.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Maybe she figured for all of the money it cost to get made up like that she's gonna wear it for a while... Plus Halloween is tomorrow - she's already in costume...

  • Quitedeliteful

    There are a lot of benefits to being dark,

  • jayroe44

    She's doing this to promote her song and mixtape which I think is a job well done. She's using the attention to get her message out. She didn't bleach her skin folks, it's just lots of makeup. This song is fire though!

  • Quitedeliteful

    You know she paid a grip for that makeup job -- girlfriend is gonna get her money's worth! LOLLOLLOL!!!

  • YellowSauce

    I just watched an African skin bleach documentary AND the Jamaican one ... in Africa its illegal to sell these products (or at least in the area featured) people were getting arrested for selling it and there is an African rapper that made herself completely white I forget her name but that stuff WORKS it makes them white ... they look like spice ... the ones in Jamaica aren't as potent as the ones in Africa but they still work but the ones in African actually make them look less fake white .. it was crazy watching them they are on youtube ... I never thought the stuff worked but it DOES ... it was wild ... I wouldn't be surprised if she really bleached ... her hands and everything are white and for the first interview she had on gloves ... they cover themselves when they first put it on so it "takes" to their skin ... I hope she didn't but it is definitely possible

  • kekeb

    She looks stupid as hell. Hopefully this has a point

    The thing of it is when an extremely light-skinned person gets old and starts to wrinkle, they look like boiled, skinless chicken.
