Azealia Banks On Bleaching Her Skin: “What’s The Difference Between Getting A Hair Weave & Changing Your Skin Color?" (Video)

Sunday, July 03, 2016

Azealia Banks recently went on Facebook Live to speak to her fans regarding rumors she was bleaching her skin.

The 25-year old Harlem, New York native got right to the point, admitting she was in the process of "skin lightening" and compared it to any other cosmetic procedure.

Her words below:

"I see that you guys really want to talk to me about this whole skin lightening thing and skin bleaching thing and why I did it, what does it mean? Blah, blah blah," Banks said. "I don't think it's really important to discuss the cultural significance of skin bleaching anymore. Because I think that as African American people or just as black people in this world, you assimilate. There are just things that you accept ... not out of necessity, but you know, things that kind of become norm because it's just happening all the time. I guess people look at the skin lightening thing or the skin bleaching thing as different, but I see it as another assimilation thing.

“What’s the difference between getting your nose done and changing your skin color?” the 25-year-old rapper continued. “What’s the difference between getting a hair weave and changing your skin color? Nobody was upset when I was wearing 30-inch weaves and tearing out my edges. You guys loved it, but what is the difference? I don’t understand what difference is, because there really isn’t a difference. To say that it negates anything that I’ve said about this current situations of blackness in America is stupid. What do body modifications have to do with someone’s intellect? The two don’t correlate. “
