Kelly Rowland Lands In People’s Most Beautiful People List

Kelly Rowland was not always comfortable in her own skin. She told CNikky.com “I went through a period where I didn’t embrace just being a chocolate, lovely brown-skinned girl.” In efforts to show how much more comfortable Kelly Rowland is now, she recently did a photo shoot for People Magazine Most Beautiful People

During the photo shoot Kelly Rowland revealed how she felt when she was asked to do the spread.

The first thing that popped in my head when I was asked to be a part of People’s No Make Up [shoot] was , “Oh My God! Oh my god what’s going to happen! Oh my God I’m honored” but I’m very happy.  I feel very comfortable in my skin and very comfortable to share it with you guys. When I’m not working, my preference is no make up.  I like for my skin to breathe because I do wear make up a lot, so I think it’s necessary to be au naturel.

What I don’t love about my face that gets covered by make up is my bags when I’m really really tired, but I love that make up does the trick.

When I don’t have make up on, I feel clean. I feel really really clean.

Others who made the list included Pink, Kerry Washington, Halle Berry and Gwyneth Paltrow. Be sure to be on the lookout for Kelly Rowland’s new album Talk A Good Game due out in June

India Ivory (Arie) ?

Can you spot the difference ?

Many fans went into a frenzy after the left picture above of songwriter and singer India Arie’s promo picture for her new single “Cocoa Butter” was released. The hype started when fans noticed an unrecognizable India Arie who is notably known for her hit song “Brown Skin.” She appeared to look much lighter than usual on the cover of the picture. Considering that India’s lyrics promote self acceptance and beauty fans could not understand why she would want to bleach her skin.

However the singer denies any accusations of bleaching. Sources close to India Arie told TMZ that the criticism is ridiculous because the “lightened”skin is merely the product of the camera flash and angle. They also stated that the singer never asked to be lightened. Many people may agree but still wonder if the singer has the authority to approve the picture before it is published.

Just several months ago India Arie went into a tirade over the Nina Simone biopic skin color controversy. Zoe Saldana was selected to play Nina Simone in the film however Saldana’s characteristics and physical attribute didn’t sit well with Arie once the pictures for the film were released. She stated on Nina Simone’s website, “Yes there should be a movie made, and YES they should have chosen someone who LOOKS like Nina Simone, ESPECIALLY since her RACE played such a PIVOTAL role in WHO, WHAT and WHY, she was. THAT ASIDE for a second, this just looks WEIRD, it looks like a person in Black(er) face with a fake nose … REALLY?!!!!” 

Issues pertaining to the skin in the African American community especially in the entertainment industry is not uncommon. Beyonce has been accused of lightening her skin on several occasions. Kelly Rowland recently spoke in an interview about accepting her brown skin and influencing Brandy to speak about her insecurities as a child. Other celebs who have been rumored to be bleaching over the years are endless, but we wont get into that. Another story another day. *Sips Tea*
