India Arie Responds To Rumors of Skin Bleaching

Published: Saturday 30th Mar 2013 by Rashad

While some fans of songbird India Arie rejoiced at news of the Grammy winner’s forthcoming album ‘Songversation’ (June 25) – led by the single ‘Cocoa Butter’ – others weren’t exactly gleaming at first glance of the single’s cover art.

Arie, whose career has wielded a number of self-love hits like ‘Private Party’, ‘Video’, and ‘I Am Not My Hair’, immediately came  under fire with accusations of skin bleaching.

Now, it seems the ‘Ready for Love’ singer is ready to nip the rumors in the bud.  Taking to Twitter over the weekend, see what Miss Arie had to say:

    • Anne March 31, 2013

      I don’t think she bleached her skin but the photo was obviously photoshopped and shot in a way to alter her appearance. But the more I look at the photo I think the lighting was most likely intentional and the obvious photoshopping of her face especially the shape of her chin and the slight alteration of her nose was definitely intentional. I think it’s obvious that someone wanted to make India Arie look different and I guess she liked what she saw and went along with it. Maybe she is not as in love with her natural appearance as she would have others to believe.

    Yasss India, love your skin honey, Love your brown skin too honey. Shame the devil and declare you do not succumb to industry standards like a certain fraudulent thieving b**** does.

    India, unlike the faking thieving, fraudulent, fat heux, you’re a real woman, no blond weaves, no skin bleaching, no faking song writing credits, publishing and rights, you’re a REAL PROUD AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN and I love it.

    India, I cannot wait for this single to come out so I can purchase it. Shame that skin bleaching, thieving, has-been, bow down FLOP HEUX.

    • Lovebird March 30, 2013

      Rihanna doesn’t bleach her skin, her dad is light skinned. Just look at her brother, he’s also light skinned.

      • Rellz March 30, 2013

        And Beyonces mother is light skinned as is the rest of her maternal family. You and your double standards.

      • Lovebird March 30, 2013

        Please, Beyonce’s mom is not light skinned, she bleaches just as much as Beyonce does.

      • Lovebird March 30, 2013

        And Rihanna has green eyes too.

      • Rellz March 30, 2013

        Girl Bye. Your proof that is what? Have you seen pictures of Tina when she was younger and Beyonces two uncles for that matter? No probably not cos you run and jump with idol gossip about Beyonce just to downgrade her.

      • FAF March 30, 2013

        CICI, hon Nicki doesn’t bleach, she uses hilight on her cheekbones and nose. Look at pics of her without makeup, her skin is still caramel… 😉

      • xedos March 31, 2013

        Rihanna paternal grand-mother is white

      • Grrr March 31, 2013

        Beyonce has white ancestry, they are decendants of Joseph Broussard.

    • Rellz March 30, 2013

      Beyonce is in the damn brain all the time lol. It cant even praise someone without bringing up Beyonce.

  8. JARED (WHITE DUDE) March 30, 2013

    Colourism? Colourism? Colourism?

    Society seriously does make me sick, at times.

    Have people yet to realise that Black people come in a VARIETY of skin tones, shades and complexions? India has NOT ‘bleached’ her skin in any sort of way – the shade/pigmentation of her skin has just reacted to the pixelated light particles in a camera and, thus, has made her “brighter” looking?

    1) I fail to see any reports that state “Lana Del Rey responds to rumours of “LIP ENHANCEMENT”?

    2) I fail to see any reports that state “Lindsay Lohan responds to rumours of “SEVERE SKIN BRONZING?

    3) I fail to see any reports that state “Pamela Anderson responds to rumours of “BUM/THIGH & WAIST IMPLANTS”?

    But when it’s a Black person – the media/press stress the situation to the absolute fullest.

    India has always been proud of what she is and has always taken a stance in promoting ‘Black beauty’, in her music and otherwise, so why, all of a sudden, would she counteract her teachings and ethics. She’s proud of what she is and if society wan’t so racially warped – institutionally and systematically – MAYBE, there wouldn’t be such a problem.

    • CICCONE March 30, 2013

      YOU BETTEA MUTHAFUCKING PREACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      *Throws hands in the air and hollers*

    • Lovebird March 30, 2013

      I understand what you’re saying but Lindsay, Lana and Pamela do not face the hurdles beautiful black women like India face in Hollywood, this is why it’s such a big issue.

      • CICCONE March 30, 2013

        That was his point!!!

    • Suicide Blonde March 30, 2013

      You must be black, lol.

        @Suicide…

        Thats abit of an ignorant thing to say. Cant white people be cultured and well-travelled? Then again, ur a racist white… I wouldnt expect anything better from u!!!

        NEXT BISH>>>

      • Suicide Blonde March 30, 2013

        I’m just kidding.

      • Lovebird March 30, 2013

        @Suicide Blonde,

        He strikes me as one of those white guys who once had a black girlfriend or boyfriend and is now racially aware.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) March 30, 2013

        @Lovebird…

        You would be correct? LMFAO.

        Not to mention, ‘I’m British’ and my education was a bit different!

      • ohh blah… you lamerz March 30, 2013

        you can really say “eduacated differently” or “rebeling”. i’m the worst case being german and still like me some “black tint”. still… black gals and guys resist to blend and make up their own race. i hate that one. :/

    • LOUISA March 30, 2013

      PREACH.

  9. ohh blah… you lamerz March 30, 2013

    only n***** complaining about it. 😆 nobody else really cares about that. F*** OFF.

  10. Fran March 30, 2013

    People that believe the skin bleaching crap in some of these females are gullible and ignorant. Different lighting and make-up creates different illusions. Even simple photographs, as someone with fair skin myself I know this. Its sad because sometimes it is edited to make them look lighter but that doesn’t mean they bleach their skin. Same way that sometimes they wear stage makeup to make them look more golden or whatever.

  11. Cream March 30, 2013

    Something is up with her nose to just saying

    • Anne March 30, 2013

      Noticed the same thing. Think that got by some people because they are so busy focusing on the obvious difference in her skin tone.

  12. SLAYRIAH CAREY (SUPERIOR DIVA) March 30, 2013

    I definitely think that Nicki Minaj chile bleaches her skin but NOT Rihanna and Beyonce.

    • Lovebird March 30, 2013

      I doubt Nicki Minaj bleaches her skin, Beyonce yes.

    • riqueen March 30, 2013

      Only beycowce bleaches

      • FAF March 30, 2013

        Keep mentioning Nicki, F****** 😆

  13. Lovebird March 30, 2013

    The problem here India is that people like Beyonce and Lil’ Kim are making girls too self conscious by bleaching their skin and making it seem like the norm.

    I do appreciate that black women come in all shades and sizes like my light skinned sisters, Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, Rihanna but that does not mean brown skinned sisters like India, Kelly Rowland should not be proud of their beautiful skin.

    People like Beyonce, who bleach their skin disgust me. Like what is wrong with you’re skin, there’s nothing wrong with it.

    • CICCONE March 30, 2013

      WHY DONT U SHUT THE F*** UP FOR ONCE???????

      WHY IS BEYONCE BROUGHT UP ALL THE TIME WITH YOU!!!

      *Reports*

    • Anne March 30, 2013

      So it’s the lighting when it’s India but bleach when it’s Beyonce. Have you seen Beyonce’s baby pics and childhood footage or her mother’s skin tone? Beyonce has been light skinned her whole life though she has obviously appeared/or has had different shades based on tans, lighting,and/or makeup. There’s no reason to conclude that she has bleached her skin. If you make that conclusion how can you automacally let India off the hook so easily?

    • TRUTH SERUM March 31, 2013

      Am I missing something??? Beyonce looks the same complexion she was since she was little girls. There are tons of picture on the internet that clearly shows that she was always a lighter complexion black girl. Your obsession with all things Beyonce has reached a new high. I crowning you the honorary Donkey of the Day. Invest in some online therapy… and relax babe…

    • lola March 31, 2013

      LOVEBIRD,
      You Rihanna stans are delusional and hypocritical. Beyoncé was actually MUCH LIGHTER WHEN SHE WAS A YOUNG GIRL AND A TEENAGER! She’s darkened over the years, but it still light skinned. Rihanna is the one who was always in the sun and a tad bit darker than Beyoncé when she first came out, and now has whiter skin! How the hell is that possible when she’s had years of sun exposure and over time it permanently darkens your skin? You’re talking about Beyoncé and Lil Kim making young girls self-conscious when it’s really Rihanna and she’s also letting them know it’s okay to be a w****, share your naked pics to the world, and get your ass whooped by a man.

  14. Eye Candy March 30, 2013

    I don’t think she has bleached her skin. Keep in mind that the first pic was probably under artificial bright light while the second pic was most likely under little or dim lighting.

  15. Anne March 30, 2013

    Some of the same people who suddenly found the voice of reason or don’t even care to comment when it’s India Arie, would be attacking someone like Beyonce, Rihanna, or Nicki when lighting (and/or make-up, tans) can cause changes in the appearance of their skin tone also. Just goes to show that some artists are hated on while others are fairly given the benefit of the doubt.

  16. Hmmm March 30, 2013

    So now this is gonna turn into a post about Beyonce and all the others Beyonce is the same damn color since she was a child. Shes always been light skinned. People need to stop usuing Beyonce like its so dry now! Lil Kim on the other hand….

  17. LOUISA March 30, 2013

  20. SLAYRIAH CAREY (SUPERIOR DIVA) March 30, 2013

    Is there something wrong with skin bleaching though?

    I don’t see any problems. If someone wants a lighter complexion there’s nothing wrong with that. People make the most of everything.
    Why isn’t there the same issue for when a white person tans?

    • CICCONE March 30, 2013

      GOODBYE B****!!!

    • Eye Candy March 30, 2013

      Are you white? I can’t!
      A black person that bleaches their skin is someone that confirms to the EUROPEAN standard of beauty. This is why the “black is beautiful”/”I’m black and I’m proud” movements were created. White women have always been seen as feminine and coquettish while blacks women have been made to feel dirty & ugly because of dark skin and our kinky hair.

  23. Slaylor Swift March 30, 2013

    Black Girls wanna be lighter so they compete with the likes of the elites aka Adele Taylor, Katy, GaGa… someone dark like Kelly Rowland & Fantasia will never make it mainstream so i don’t blame beyonce rihanna & nicki for bleaching a lil here & there

    • Eye Candy March 30, 2013

      There is no reason to bleach skin ever.
      The self hate amongst blacks in the western world is disgusting.

      • TRUTH STAN March 30, 2013

        WELL I THINK KELLY IS BETTER LOOKING THAN BEYFLOP AND I ALSO THINK THAT BRANDY IS BETTER LOOKING THAN LEONA LEWI. TAYLOR AND ADELE LOOK LIKE UGLY AVERAGE LOOKING B****** WITHOUT MAKEUP!! I THINK INDIA AND FANTASIA ARE GORGEOUS THEY DONT NEED A FACS FULL OF MANMADE PRODUCTS ON THEIR FACE

  24. riqueen March 30, 2013

    Im sure its just beyofat who’s bleaching their skin please dont drag India in this s***.

  25. Music Soul Harmony March 30, 2013

    I doubt that shitbird aka lovebird cares about dark skin blacks!
    She/he shaded Kelly Rowland a while ago on another post saying she is getting too dark and
    Needed to bleach her skin! Watch the b**** deny it! Don’t let the troll
    Fool you.

  26. Omari March 30, 2013

    I don’t believe India bleaches her skin. But for all the dumbasses on here saying that India doesn’t bleach her skin yet Nicki, Beyoncé and Rihanna do just sounds f****** dumb and contradictory. I don’t believe any of them bleach their skin either, especially not Beyonce or Rihanna. Lil Kim now, that’s someone who clearly has.

  27. Lovebird March 30, 2013

    Janet Jackson was brown chocolate skin like India Arie and Kelly Rowland and she’s one of the biggest pop acts in history.

    Plus Kelly Rowland, with her natural dark skin had huge international hits like When love takes over, Commander, Motivation, that was until Beyonce sabotaged her career. So no, your skin tone does not determine your success, it is you as an artist.

  28. Hive March 30, 2013

  29. Trina March 30, 2013

    Nothing wrong with bleaching lighter skin just looks better ya know

    • TRUTH STAN March 30, 2013

      UM IS LIGHT IS RIGHT THEN WHY DO PALE B****** WANNA LOOK DARKER? WHY DO WHITE WOMEN WANNA LOOK LIKE LIGHT SKINNED BLACK AND LATINA CHICKS?

  30. Miss Grace March 30, 2013

    India is just an extreme case of lighting here. I think Nicki possibly bleaches and Lil Kim for sure too, not Ri & Bey though. Ri is very light skinned and Beyonce is light skinned/caramel. Like someone said, its all in the name of lighting. You’ll see them one day in a shoot looking pale and next day being papped looking their normal complexion.

  31. Trina March 30, 2013

    If people wanna bleach let them no one cares if white people tan to get darker yet they get mad when a black person bleaches so they can look good n feel good about themselves

  37. A Note March 30, 2013

    I see the obsessed troll(s?) stay talking about Beyonce *Eye Roll* I don’t particularly like her all the time but no wonder the Hive is so crazy and defensive. Its so obvious to anyone rational she doesn’t bleach. Shes light skinned get over it. Even the complexion of her daughter proves that. And I refuse to believe India does lol.

  38. SLAYRIAH CAREY (SUPERIOR DIVA) March 30, 2013

    I want to bleach my skin and rent several blonde lacefronts so that my hair dresser from Jamaica Queens can sew it into the middle of my forehead

    • meeeeeee March 30, 2013

      whos that supposed to be ?

  39. You Said Wahh March 30, 2013

    Rihanna was so much darker in Pon De Replay days, I think shes had a lil bleach here and there when they told her she needed to change up her image but goes unnoticed cos she kinda light anyway.

  40. Bow Down March 30, 2013

    Beyonce doesnt bleach i dont think Rihanna does either but that b**** Nicki i can tell is a f****** BLEACHER!!!

  41. Blanco March 30, 2013

    Of course NICKI GARBAHJ Bleaches

    • FAF March 30, 2013

      Kimmy FLOPco wishes she was white or exotic like Nicki..

  44. BEYLOWQUEENRIHANNACE March 30, 2013

    Hi my name is beyonce I got S** reassignment surgery when i was 5 and I’ve been bleaching since i was in destiny’s child hogging up the spotlight with my tranny man shoulders anyway i thought i should take the time to admit that rihannas better than me at EVERYTHING i do shes a better singer dancer and shes much prettier than me AND YES I KNOW ALL OF THIS IS TRUE!

  45. SHAKIRA(THE ORIGINAL BEY) March 30, 2013

  46. I am… Rihanna March 30, 2013

    I wish my mother got my forehead moulded when I was a baby its so damn heavy! Damn life is hard trying to hide it all the time. Beyoncé is so lucky she doesn’t have to worry about that, and she has a nice straight nose since childhood. And her lips aint a weird shape like mine. And LORD, why couldn’t you give me some TALENT! No one respects me for my talent besides my deluded fans, its so sad all they can throw around is stats. I think ET was actually my father.

    • riqueen March 30, 2013

      Rih stop lyin you know your mush more exotic and beautiful looking than that ugly tranny looking h** beycowce and you DO have talent so much of it the way you sing is so unique and precious unlike beyonfat who has a deep manly voice and does over done runs and people think just because its a heavy tone its good.You actually sound like a f****** girl. 🙂

      • I am… Rihanna March 30, 2013

        No. Im the one that looks like a tranny. Have you seen me with no makeup? Beyonce has talent whether you like her style or not hands down. And shes so beautiful like her creole ancestors. 🙁 At least she sounds human, I meanwhile, sound like a goat. Im off now to go give Chris worm d*** a blow job now…. Goodnight!

    • SHAKIRA(THE ORIGINAL BEY) March 30, 2013

      RIH IS MORE GORGEOUS THAN COWONYCE WILL EVER BE!!!

  49. Kiss From Hell March 30, 2013

    i think nicki bleaches the most outta the 3 but nicki rihanna n beyonce are all bleachers its so f****** obvious mamas don’t be delusional….

  50. Beyonce the bleacher March 30, 2013

    Ever since i was a baby i wanted to be SPANISH / WHITE! I couldn’t stand being black so my dad decided to put me in a group with much darker girls so i could feel better about myself it worked for awhile until we made it to Hollywood i was seeing all these light beautiful people like Jennifer Lopez Shakira & Christina Aguilera i wanted so desperately to look like them so i just started bleaching & wearing blonde wigs to fulfill my dreams of being a Spanish/ White Woman & guess what its working i look at pics from when i was 16 to know being 42 i look like a completely different woman & im proud of it

  51. Robyn Fenty (the goat) March 30, 2013

    My name is Robyn, fans know me as Rihanna. Ever since the Rated R era, I started bleaching my skin. I mean look at my “Pon De Replay” video, I look 10x darker there than in the “Te Amo” video.
    Imma take my non singing ass back to the left side of Jamaica to pick coconuts like I used to do before Camel-Z discovered me.
    It’s ironic that I was named after a bird, birds can sing yet I can’t even hold a note.

  52. DIGGER BEY March 30, 2013

    B**** STFU AND GO BLEACH UR P**** FROM THE COLORS GREEN AND PURPLE!

  53. DIGGER BEY March 30, 2013

    Tina Knowles ancestry includes African, and French. She is an descendent of Acadian leader Joseph Broussard. Also KING B’S Grandma, Agnez’ DeRouen was French/Black. KING B is light because of her Grandma ancestry. U ugly ass gremlin looking H***, are just mad that u can’t look like her lmaoooo. #PEOPLE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

  54. DIGGER BEY March 30, 2013

    And if KING B is bleaching, then Hoeianna is too. Cause her ass was the one who tweeted an pic of KING B and said, her beauty could destroy the self esteem of entire Nation! #BOOM POW B******

  55. DIGGER BEY March 30, 2013

    Lmfao This is how most of Rihoeanna stans brains are made up. Especially that Miserably Cockface H** @ Lovebird. 30% =Rihanna. 40% =KING B. 30% =F*CKIN DELUSIONAL ASS HELL!

  56. Rob March 31, 2013

    I believe her actually in her Tweet. Even if she is, I just hope there is nothing nasty in her bleaching agent such as hydroquinone which can really damage your health.

  57. joker March 31, 2013

    what is this post about again in the first place?

    stirring up peopz. seriously obsolete… right?

    bad idea. it’s a mess. 🙂

  58. young rih Worth$ 124million March 31, 2013

    I had to type this here. Beyonce fans have run out of card, so they beat the same dead horse that OLD 45 year beyonce is richer than a girl half her age. Well, bey has been out longer and is 45. Most of 45 year olds tend to be richer than people in their 20’s, excluding JB who is 19, worth 100 MILL.

    RIH IS RICH B****, richer than beyonce was that age in 2006. Let me break it down: 2011 rih was on the forbes just behind beyonce with $ 29 mill – she was 23

    2012 she was on the forbes list AHEAD OF BEYONCE WITH $ 53 MILL something beyonce did not have at that age. Sp from 2011 to 2012 she made $ 82 million. But, before 2011, she had the GGGB era, deals with cover girl, Vita cocowater, she had a tour that madea healthy $ 40 mil, she had Nike deal, clinque deal, H&M, Nivea, Mansion in Loz Feliz taht she copped in 2008 when she was a teen, home in beverly hills she paid over $ 4 million. If she is so broke and poor how does she afford mansion in LA?

    betweeen 2006 to 2010 HOW MUCH MONEY DID SHE MAKE OF AGLM ERA, GGGB, LOUD AND TTT ERA? SHE MADE MILLIONS she was worth at least $ 30mill . Add the 29 mill in 2011, then 53 mill a year later, what does that come to? THAT IS $ 124 MILLION AS OF 2013.

    THIS( 2013) IS HER BIGGEST YEAR TO DATE: SHE WILL MAKE MORE THAN 53 MILLION LAST YEAR AND THIS WILL PUSH HER UP $ 200 MILLION AND SHE IS 25. BEYONCE WAS NOT WORTH $ 200 MILL AT 25.

    RIHANNA IS RICHER THAN BEYONCE.

    • young rih Worth$ 124million March 31, 2013

      I have found as of 2012 what the stars are really WORTH.

      Beyonce 41 – 350 mill

      Lady gaga 20 something – 270 million – she has been out lest than beyonce.

      Justin Bieber – 19 – 170 million

      Justin Timberlkae – 77 million – much less than bieber.

      RIHANNNA 24 AS OF 2012 THEY HAD HER AT 98 MILLION. YES 98 MILLION LAST YEAR.

      Britney spears 212 mill and she had breakdown, flop albums and never written a song in her life.

      • young rih Worth$ 124million March 31, 2013

        Rihanna’s Net Worth Is $98,353,500 as of Wednesday, March 21, 2012

        Any questions ?

      • young rih Worth$ 124million March 31, 2013

        YOU F****** WISH BEYONCE WAS WORTH NEAR 100 MILL AT 24. No wonder beyonce is deep seated mad and jealous, rihanna is more richer and famous than her AT THAT SAME AGE, in a shorter time and she does not have a powerful voice or write her songs. Nor did she grow up upper middle class in america.

        she grew up working class in Barbados and now look how she murder the F*** OUT OF BEYONCE ON ALL FRONTS – EVEN MONEY. Oh, and the 98 million plus IS RIH’S MONEY AFTER TAXES AND PAYING managers, label, agents. HER PERSONAL MONEY is more than beyone as that same age.

  59. Young Rih is worth OVER $ 151 milllion March 31, 2013

    ADD 98 million ( 98,353) to 53 million she made she is woth OVER $151 MILLION AND COUNTING. This more than beyonce when she was this age.

    Any question>?

    • Mother Mariah March 31, 2013

      Who cares? Damn!

  60. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 31, 2013

    OH PLEASE SAVE IT , black artists with dark black skin color don’t sell that much nowadays , so i think her team thought of altering her skin color to be whitish to appeal to people who can tolerate not-so-dark black color !!! it is all a sad thing to be honest.

    i do not think she’s the one who’s responsible for this mess , but her team is the one to blame !!

  61. Xxx March 31, 2013

    I thought this post was about India

  62. Mother Mariah March 31, 2013

    Good lighting & photoshop.

    • iamsashashit March 31, 2013

      good lighting or just lighting?

  63. irene46 April 1, 2013

    i don’t know if she’s bleached her skin or not but her cover has been photoshopped into something that barely resembles her. however, i would kill if i could have legs like those.
