Music Video: Spice – “Black Hypocrisy”
Dancehall artist Spice sent the internet into hysteria yesterday when she posted pictures of herself with what appeared to be bleached skin. I didn’t fall for it for a second because it takes a lot longer to bleach your skin that drastically — she looked like her regular self just a few months ago at the season 7 reunion of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta. Also, if you’ve ever seen Spice and the way she carries herself, you’ll know that she couldn’t possibly be that insecure about her looks.
The prank was a publicity stunt to promote her new single, “Black Hypocrisy,” which addresses colorism within the black race. She dropped the video for the song today, and it confirms that she didn’t really bleach her skin. I think the whole thing is brilliant. Watch the video below.
