Guess Who

This precious baby girl grew up to be a self-absorbed, self-centered, delusional pop singer who can't get enough of the spotlight. This woman will do anything for attention -- even fake giving birth to her daughter. Millions of gullible young girls look up to her for guidance and advice, but she is no role model. Can you guess who she is?

Necole Bitchie

Last night a friend sent this photo of blogger Necole Bitchie with the caption "She is getting bleach happy."

Because the friend didn't identify the females in the photo, I had no idea the female on the left was Necole.

The last time we explored the issue of Necole's low self-esteem was in this post dated January 2009. As you can see, Necole's bleaching has gotten progressively worse. She is lighter than the LSLH chick pictured on the right.

How sad it must be to feel like a stranger in your own skin?

Hi Sandra, Love love love the website. Honestly I find it saddening when black women do things like this. (*cough* Beyonce) I myself am a black woman and I feel like I have reverse self hate issues. I WISH I was DARKER, I would say my complexion is around the real complexion of Necole Bitchie posted on your website, but its something about a dark skin I find beautiful and regal.

Unfortunately my family is full of different nationalities (but I represent for my black people) I'd prefer to be darker and I sometimes where foundation darker than my real complexion on purpose. I've come to the realization that some black woman especially industry ones get pulled into the light is right syndrome. The lighter they are the more beautiful they feel, black women aren't represented properly in the entertainment industry, when I see my people I see beauty in full lips, and various nose shapes and various colors, I find nothing beautiful about pasty white skin, (no offense to those with no pigment) I just thought I'd share my thoughts.

Keep up the GREAT work!!!!!!!

Comments Off on Does Blogger Necole Bitchie Have Self Hate Issues?

Last night I was on the phone with another female blogger who asked me if I'd seen fellow blogger Necole Bitchie's new photos yet. I hadn't so I went to Necole's blog to see for myself.

Once on Necole's blog, I observed a header image photographed by Derek Blanks that depicted a surreal scene of two women.

It took me a moment to realize I was looking at two images of Necole. One image was decidedly lighter than the other. But both images were lighter than Necole appears in person.

Now I wouldn't be bringing this up at all if I hadn't noticed in the past that Necole, who is very beautiful in her brown skin, tends to take studio shots that render her 10 shades lighter than she actually is.

Just as it offended me when Michael Jackson transformed himself into a white woman, it offends me to see a beautiful black sistah erase her blackness deliberately.

Judge for yourself
