An item of note from Wednesday:
What the hell is THIS unholy abomination?
People joke about the forever “brightening” of Beyonce, but this is just ridiculous. L’Oreal went out of control with the PhotoShop and unnecessarily so, considering she is unrecognizable. And what’s the point of having a celebrity spokesperson if you can’t tell that’s the celebrity who once sang lead on a song called “Bootylicious?”
They were ready for the jelly, but they needed it to look more “vampiric.”
I was hipped to this “creation” by Negro Intellectual who found it on TMZ. I’m not a huge Beyonce fan (although I am a fan of all divas to a degree), but it is pretty insulting to do this to her. To basically tell her that, “oh no … you’re not light enough, Bey. You could always be LIGHTER,” is highly insulting. Most people, white or black or Asian or whatever, already find Beyonce attractive as her caramel self. Extremely attractive to the point that they often embarrass themselves slipping on their own drool.
And she’s so profitable and so ubiquitous. She’s everywhere, even shilling for American Express — as her brown self. She has proven, as UPS used to tag, “what Brown can do for you.” So really? What up, L’Oreal? Ease up on the whitewash before some stans start organizing a protest on why you made their favorite chick look like some bland, ashy-faced blonde when she was perfectly fine just the way she was.
She was fine BROWN! Keep Beyonce brown, lest the stans revolt!
