Lightenin’ Up: 10 Celebrities Accused Of Bleaching Their Skin [Photos]

 

Whether it was admitted or denied, a lot of Hollywood is getting lighter for some reason and a lot of people have suspected bleaching.

Some can argue that celebrities are influenced to do it because of the better treatment lighter complexions receive in Hollywood for television, magazines, and better endorsements.

However, we can all agree that these celebrities have gotten a little lighter over the years and it’s obvious to see.

Peep the page #’s below to see these alleged celebrity skin bleachers and let us know which ones you think are guilty!

    • Jackie

      Sooo they’re definitely both Latoya…Janet never looked like that…

    • Mzmystic

      No hun they are both pics of Latoya. Janet has bigger cheeks and Just asking why would the pics of her “bleaching” be earlier than her being darker.

    • sexiime42

      Both are latoya one wh3n she was younger I have both pics im a big fan

  • wow

    ok first of all that is a picture of janet in the before and then latoya in the after…who however posts this nonsense needs to check their work first. plus black people naturally get lighter and darker from summer to winter…

  • waaat??

    yall dumb they both latoya. woooooow.. stupid.

  • Naiya

    i need that cream…!

    • ms jazz

      lol

    • Jasmine

      dont do it there is so few chocolate kisses left dont go over to the light side and if you cant pull a dude with the skin you got maybe its you cause i tell boys of all different races no every day and my skin is hersey’s bar dark its all about cofidence and how you carry your self if you dont love the way you look nobody else will :)

  • Angel

    These pics are so not proving anything. First of all, Rhihanna looks the same as she did when she first came out in 2005. The pictures are just taken in brighter light on one of the pics. And the same can be said for a few others. Epic Fail Hip Hop wired.

    • Bella

      Exactly. Plus Rihanna is quite light anyway the first pic she looks orange not brown so its obviously fake tan

  • Shanice

    @Meesha @wow Anybody with eyes can tell that both those pictures are LaToya!

    • wow

      mmhh I see ya’ll fixed that pic of latoya cause it was DEF janet when they first posted it..I’m not that blind…this was a wack list anyways…how about something positive for once about black celebrities? Like how many of these mofos donate to charities?!?! damn….

      • blackgirl3

        i’m black and i find it may be hard to post positive things about black people because the black celebrities with the most fame are doing idiotic things. and not only black ones but also female celebs and young celebs. it’s embarrassing that these are the people who hold the most weight in the world. they don’t even love themselves or have security in themselves yet they are the ones with the power who are idolized by today’s children. 

  • Curveball

    Only about 1/4 of these are bleaching. The rest are victims of different lighting in the pictures, airbrushing, bad/no tanning and disease (or something).

  • Benzoe88

    thats latoya in both pics!

  • jj

    I don’t think rihanna nor bey bleached themselves
    I remember seeing rihanna when she first came out and I was surprise how pale she was in person
    I think her and beyonce are naturally fair and use bronzer to give them color

    • blackgirl3

      beyonce isn’t bleaching. the photo they used of her is actually very controversial because the company lightened her tone during editing of the photo. they said it would sell more that way.

    • ghg

      how can they be light if they are black. light skins blacks do not exist. light brown skin is not fair

      • Chanice

        Light skin blacks do exist actually I am one of them and would NEVER bleach my skin. I’m 19 and people think I’m mixed race as I am VERY light for a full black person both parents are black. I get my fair skin from my nan so please don’t make a comment unless you know fact.

    • Bella

      I agree with you! Rihanna on the first pic looks quite orangey

  • shanna

    ok rihanna one isnt so she was always light but especially now she is over in the states and not in the Caribbean sun 24/7

  • Styl

    No no_no rihanna is still d same_d_light_dere_waz_bright_were_d picture is shot. Luk 4 a btter tin.

  • nysdiva

    Vybez Kartel looks the worse out of them all. Why isn’t chocolate skin considered beautiful?

    • goodlucklava

      you are sooo telling the truth ! i love my brown skin .

      • Pamela Christian

        be honest now, girlfriend.

  • nysdiva

    Everybody likes to eat chocolate but don’t want the skin color.

  • http://www.womanist-musings.com/ Renee

    Okay you know you did Bey Bey wrong there right? That image was photoshopped to make her like lighter. It does not suggest bleaching but that Whiteness only wants lighter skinned Blacks.

    • goodlucklava

      finally someone with sense ! i agree 100%

  • stop it!

    Once again, these dumbarses are bleaching their skin to look white, while white people are spending billions on tanning, and happily laying in the sun getting cancer to be their color. They look blotchy, and unnatural. Smh.

  • BrandonHill

    These people may have criticized Michael Jackson in the past…

    • Pamela Christian

      let that man RIP

  • NaeNae

    Michael Jackson had vitiligo. nobody believed him then, it was confirmed in his autopsy.

    • LYRICS

      i will admit that i was 1 of the “nay-sayers” in regards 2 that skin disease, but after it was confirmed, boy was i shook!!! i start’d reseahrching it n’ all kinds of stuff!!!

      Bey n’ Riri don’t bleach…they are naturally light and it’s know that when they air brush bey’s pics, they make her lighter (U CAN DO THAT!!)….ESPECIALLY for thoes L’oreal commercials/shoots, so when light hits them (spotlight, camera light, etc) they appear even lighter! Look @ Bey w/o make-up on…..she’s quite light!!

      IMAN MOS’DEF HAS BEEN BLEACHIN’ HER SKIN!! LATOYA WENT FROM BLEACHER 2 NONE BLEACHER N’ SHE’S COSIDERABLY DARKER N’ THAT’S WHAT MR. KARTEL FAILS 2 REALISE……WHEN HE CAN’T BLEACH NEMORE N’ HIS COLOR STARTS 2 COME BACK….HE’S GONNA BE BLACKER THAN MIDNIGHT!!! LOVES KIM, BUT SHE WILL ALWAYS HAVE SELF-ESTEEM ISSUES, WHICH ARE UNECESSARY B/C KIM WAS A CUTIE BACK IN THE JUNIOR MAFIA DAYS!!

  • worldchanger

    They all look dead.

  • Gaza mi seh

    Kartel still di baddest dj ina dancehall who care wat people do wit dey own bdy oh oh awhoe lol

  • anon

    I don’t believe the Trina story, all the others including Bey and rhi rhi are suspects

  • raina

    Rihanna, Iman and Beyonce clearly did not bleach their skin. The bleached ones look ashy. To be fair if you took a picture of me after a vacation on a beach somewhere then again about this time of year, you would see a big difference. Everyone knows black skin tans more readily than any other skin type. I mean Iman is originally from Somali and then lived in Kenya before she went to the U.S. the 1975 pic is probably from then.

  • omg

    Umm black folks aren’t one shade their whole dang lives. Like they can tan or get pale. this is the humblest article ever

  • Ktradez.. Really .. I was born this way

    Uhm am I the only one disturbed by trinas teeth? Ewes..

  • The Cynic

    @Ktradez Kartell is a Jamaican dance hall artist.

    @Everyone
    the title of this post is ACCUSED bleachers, not actually bleachers.

    Lil Kim, Vybz, and Sammy are obvious bleachers. Rihanna’s grandmother is a White bajan of Irish descent, so It isn’t surprising her skin is so light. I actually think Beyonce attempts to make her skin look DARKER. Michael Jackson’s autopsy proved that he did in fact have the skin disease vitiligo. Not sure bout everyone else

    • Bella

      Thankyou! Someone speaking sense

  • remmy

    @ktradez
    I’ve always said that Bey makes her skin darker…if you see her with little to no make up you can see how light she is (even in baby pics) her mom looks almost white…she uses bronzer to look darker…and some of the rest are vitims of different lighting situations…

  • Ariana

    Yall stupid as hell that Beyonce Picture was in the News for days for being Photo Shopped? Why yall didn’t do her young Destiny Child days and her now..Oh I know cuz yall full of sh!t

  • http://thechroniclesoflondon.wordpress.com mslondonkay

    Beyonce didn’t lighten her skin the Loreal people did in the ad that was a whole scandal thing

  • anom

    Oh come on!! Some of the pics had different lighting or were commercial pics with airbrushing. And MICHAEL JACKSON had VITILIGO (skin disorder). Himself, his family&friends and doctors have said it, it was also mentioned in his AUTOPSY report.

  • Shadow Eagle

    monobenzone and other skin whiteners work by killing off the remaining melinin cells in your skin cells. So the ‘bleaching’ as you call it doesnt make you lighter, it makes you white, pale… albino pale.
    Michael did it to even ot his blotchy skin tone, Sammy may have done it for the same reason.
    Did anyone ask Sammy if he has vitiligo?
    Sammy must have been out of the public eye, cause it doesnt work that fast (much to fellow vitiligo sufferers chagrin)
    anyway. it’s a free country… people can adjust they’re bodies as they’d like.. boob, nose jobs, hair weaves and skin tone adjustments – dark or light. it doesnt change who they are or who their ancestors are. u cant judge people till you’ve lived in their shoes.

  • goodlucklava

    #1 they are both latoya

    #2 i dont think rihanna bleached i think shes very light (have yall seen her brothers??) & coming from barbados she had a natural tan

    #3 OMG at IMAN !!! im very disappointed … i even have her listed as an influence on my facebook lol … shes coming down ASAP …

    #4 i really dont give a f*** about vybz … FAIL

    #5 lil kim does not suprise me at all … she looks like a little chinese lady shes a FAIL as well … she been lost my respect

    #6 Beyonce did bleach … *shrugs* shes like jay-z she all for tha white mans money … wouldnt be me but cant knock it … shes juss no idol of mine

    • TruthEmpire

      Rihanna bleached aswell even her brothers are not as light as she is looking these days nearly ALL black female celebs bleach- that whether talk is BS, yes it can change your colour but not THAT much even if you went to live in the North Pole for a year you wouldn’t jump 5 shades lighter. The same goes for the sun yeah it can make you dark but not as much as you may think especially skin with melanin.

  • Unico

    Here’s an idea… instead of using photos from magazines that intentionally lighten images so they are easier to see and remove skin flaws, go for cruddy paparazzi photos.

    How can you say Beyonce and Rihanna bleach when recent images of the two show they are still the same freakin color they are known for?!

    The results of skin bleaching isn’t pretty, and people who do it remain blotchy for quite a while. So besides the most obvious, not everyone bleaches and looks instantly great.

  • onealacia

    My friend interviewed Destiny’s child years ago and she commented on how light Beyonce was. My friend was very surprised.I don’t think Beyonce bleaches her skin. I think her mother denied being black anyway.

    African Americans aren’t the only people that bleach their skin.
    (As evidenced by the people in this post.) Indians, Africans,West Indians and a few others do. Its actually more prevelant in other countries. Its a shame because the CHEMICALS that are used in skin bleachers are DANGEROUS. Check out some of the effects on google when you have a chance. We need to learn to lover ourselves the way we are. I don’t care what the media might think about my rich chocolate skin and loced hair. I am beautiful and this is the way God made me. I will never alter my appearance for foolishness!!

    • Bella

      I agree, I have never thought that Beyonce was that dark to begin with

  • Nelson

    Many of those celebretys didn’t bleach their skins. The skin can get lighter or darker because of the winter, summer or in a photo, using photo editors. The people who bleach their skins are stupid, very stupid people. The skin doesn’t matter, even if you are black, white , yellow or blue , it simply doesn’t matter.
    And the people who sad that been black is better than been white are wonrg too. They are only f****n skins.

  • Whatevalolawants

    All u people who wanna say that light skin is a white standard of beauty clearly don’t know what u r talking @. White people don’t find light skin more attractive than dark. Most white people have little to no clue that light skin is held to such esteem in some minority communities & are surprised to find that this is so.

    • Bella

      What the hell are you talking about?

  • Kaylene

    LOL Yup ya are dumb, both of those pics are LaToya, she was always light and always had all that hair. If anything, she got the majority of th white genetics in the family, because she was always the lightest Jackson out of everybody. Michael had Vitiligo and you can see patches of it forming from the mid 80′s. There are tons of pics of him youtube which clearly showed he was a victim of the disease/skin disorder. He also had Lupus, and Vitilogo can sometimes be as a result of Lupus. I wish people would leave Michael alone. Because of Lupus, he’d be in sooo much physical pain but still went on and performed like a true showman. And Lil Kim is the eptome of skin lightening. She did a complete 180!

    • TruthEmpire

      WRONG research properly and U’ll see Latoya was never that light she had the signature chocolate brown Jackson complexion- she bleached her skin and had a nose job, well several nose jobs. If she was born that light Joe Jackson would freak out on Katherine!

  • right

    For the ignoramuses on here that have never seen a person with vitiligo, it DOES NOT turn your skin a even color of white. For someone MJ’s complexion, he would have had puzzle pieces of pink skin first, which would have become white as he aged. It takes decades for someone with vitiligo to reach the stage where their skin would be white, and again it happens in patches – MJ bleached his skin to even it out but he bleache dit nontheless.

  • The Diva

    Seeing things like this can be disappointing, but also empowering. I feel sorry for anyone who would want to be lighter than God intended them to be. I’m not dark skinned, so I can’t understand what the issue with it is.. but I am a woman of African decent, partially. But the part of me that is I wish was more because black is so beautiful. WHY would anyone wanna be white??? How is that beautiful? And who made this the standard?? White folks?? Stop falling for that shyt they put on t.v….

  • bahamas/chicago/cayman girl

    Alot of the lighter celebrities Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Beyonce sometimes use bronzer or tan to get a more golden look. But its obvious when the cease to use the product, they go back to their fair skin.
    Trust me in the Caribbean, bleaching is as old as time and you can tell when someone is bleaching. The skin takes on an unnatural, sometimes almost raw hue to it!

  • Lex

    I’d just be happy if a black woman could wear her own hair. There are shorn horses and bald East Indian women who would thank you. Too much fakery. And don’t try the argument of ‘it is my own hair… I bought it.’ That’s weak.

  • sheashea

    Looking at Sammy Sosa, Vybz and Michael Jackson must all suffer from vitiligo. They only way they can live a normal life in the public eye is to bleach the brown skin or even color. I use to think Michael Jackson bleached his skin to be WHITE and SELF HATE. Until I personally started to suffer from Vitiligo myself. It’s a very emotional disease and it gets worse with STRESS. I am trying to bleach my face so I can live a NORMAL lIFE!! I miss my brown SKIN!! I cry everyday.

  • ch

    Rihanna is naturally fair.It’s true thatyour complexion lightens naturally when you leave the Caribbean sun and live in a temperate climate where there is less sunlight exposure most of the year.

  • ThisIsIt

    Ay ya mun wat ey dun hapin to ye face dey boi!!! y e dew dem tings!!!

  • Sassimiss

    Why are Bey and Riri included in this piece? They are both light skinned women who don’t need to go any lighter. Now SAMMY, VYBEZ, LIL KIM, MICHAEL have some explaining to give to their maker for messing with perfection.

  • http://stewartsynopsis.com/Site%20Index.htm We”Blacks”AreTheREALHebrewIsraelites

    Awww Iman!! Nooooooooo! :( Why!?

  • About It

    Sorry but Iman definitely bleached. As for Vybz, raaazzz cleete, ya damn bobo.

    Bey may not bleach, but she definitely lightens.

  • Sad

    The most obvious were Iman and Vybz Kartel…he looks sickly. Some of the others could be camera lighting vs. bleaching. La Toya’s before and after doesn’t make sense…she was lighter in the before picture. If she isn’t careful, her nose is gonna fall off.

  • Anoyonmous

    Don’t EVEN put Beyonce as accused to bleach her skin! we all know that l’oreal tried to make her look lighter and she still looks the same skin color! Stupid!

  • MZ.BROWN SUGA

    OK WOW!I DONT ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT BEY,RIRI ARE LIGHTENING THEIR SKIN,BEY AND RIRI ARE LIGHT SKIN ANYWAY,AND LIKE A COUPLE OF OTHER PEOPLE HAVE SAID AND I AGREE WITH SOME,I AM A DARK SKINNED CHICK,AND OF COURSE I TEND TO LIGHTEN UP IN THE WINTER BECAUSE THE SUN IS OUT LESS,AND I HAVE TO CHANGE MY FOUNDATION BECAUSE I CHANGE COLOR TOO!!SO DONT BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE IS BLEACHING THEIR SKIN,ITS CALLED WEATHER AND CLIMATE CHANGES,DIET CHANGES ALOT OF WHAT YOU DO IN YOUR LIFE HAS ALOT TO DO WITH THE WEAR AND TEAR OF YOUR SKIN,BUT AS FAR AS VYBZ AND SAMMY SOSA,LATOYA CLEAR AS DAY THAT THEY HAVE OR STILL ARE BLEACHING THEIR SKIN,THEY LOOK PALE SICKLY EVEN,THEY LOOK TERRIBLE,AND IF IN FACT THEY ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE THEY DONT LIKE THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN,GODS GOING GET THEM BECAUSE HE MADE YOU THAT COLOR THEREFORE THATS THE COLOR YOUR SUPPOSE TO BE..”I LOVE BEING BLACK BECAUSE I AM A BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMEN”!!!

  • dojah

    bigup onealasia..true black woman u r..

  • Lex

    We should accept our color and accept our hair. Wigs and weaves are false and insulting. Want to be white? Die, make a deal with God and come back otherwise stop insulting our culture with your lies.

  • http://www.twitter.com/solangewright Solange Wright

    Fawk. They’re all light skin and look like me.

    DONT GET IT TWISTED: I’m Jamaican Coolie.

  • Ori

    This is just ridiculous. I don’t believe Beyonce, Rihanna, Iman, or Trina is bleaching. Look, Iman came from Somalia, in AFRICA. Of course, she was darker. Now she is lighter because she lives in the States. I’m from Nigeria and I know that my complexion when through a complete transformation when I came to the U. S. The same can be applied to Rihanna. Celebrities take better care of their skin, ie sunscreen, moisturizers, scar removal, so that’s probably why they seem lighter. And lighting, make up and Photoshopping makes a huge difference. Why do we care anyway? To make ourselves feel better?

  • kaye starr

    Vitiligo turns your skin white…whiter than white people. My mom has it so I know…

  • http://google Kristal

    Blacks do get lighter from summer to winter, however Rihanna was in Barbados and Nicki Minaj was in Queens and somehow their light year round now. I’m from Trinidad and get lighter in cold climates, and my hair grows long, but they travel the world and still stay light now, so figure it out for yourself.

  • Kp

    I think she was using tanning products in the first picture.

  • Ebon-ya

    It could the lighting that alters their skin tones! I have a caramel complextion and depending on the lighting I can appear lighter or darker in pictures! But I definitely think Lil’ Kim and Trina bleach their skin! And Sammy Sosa looks hella scary! LOL!

  • Jada Wlliams 990

    Michael Jackson had vitilgo and had no choice but to lighten his skin because as it progressed, covering it up with makeup became to obvious.. So get your facts straight

    • Cinny Tea

      lol, can you prove that or just saying it because he claims he had it?
      How’d he go from dark, to light brown to white? I had a neighbor who had that disease and he was black and got white patched across his body. it doesnt go evenly, nor does it go from dark to lighter , it literally goes from black to WHITE. But how come in the 80s MJ was lighter than he was in the 60′s and then eventually got white? He bleached one point in his life.

      • Serena

        Google his home videos. They show that Michael had bleached his waist up for publicity purposes after vitiligo spotting became too hard to cover up. You can see it all over his legs which were still black. Check it out. Can’t speak for the plastic surgeries though lol

    • Pamela Christian

      what about getting cancer doing this , or some skin disease.

  • juniorsenior

    Celebrities who gets their skin bleached, is actually sending a signal to the black community that it is okay not to be comfortable in their own skin. It’s like plastic surgery. I respect those who turn to plastic surgery because of health or mental issues, but i certainly think that there should be a line. All the celebrities with their unnecessary plastic surgery is screaming that being fake is being “perfect”. I am black and I am proud of it.   This disgust me.

    • TiffaTaye

      i totally agree with you, im brown-skinned and proud of it !!! <3

  • GlamBunny

    How come when black people bleach their skin for a lighter complexion it’s so bad and disgraceful, but when white, asian, latino, etc people tan to appear darker, it’s trendy and admirable? Skin bleaching and tanning are both harmful to your skin and your health. This world is screwed up.

  • ressex

    I’m looking at Rihanna and think that lighting and season may play more of a part for her.  I am a medium complexioned black woman.  About Elise Neal’s complexion in summer/spring.  In winter  I get more pale, about Kim Cole’s color.  People tell me in winter I need sun.  They miss when I’m darker in Sping/Summer.  Sometimes my skin burns darker in Summer and it takes about the next winter for my true color to come back.  So I think this is at play with Rihanna.  I do think Bey is being lightened.  Even if only while on set.

  • OMG_sheSexxyyy

    i love my brown skinnnnnnnn :) 

  • Adenkawthar

    that’s how it is black people whiten, Caucasians tan  

  • riri

    and how does a black person look? I smell someone who feels black should be a certain way? I mean in the US everyone kept telling me I cant pass for afro american only Indian.whilst im hundred percent black with light skin and thin features.

  • Harvey_caleb

    I really don’t see a problem with it. People can do what they what with their body. It’s not even about being white it’s about having an even skin tone. I’m a light skinned person but sometimes when I get exposed to the sun it turn colors in diferent places and it throws my whole comlempextion off. It’s about geting that sun kissed middle skin tone if your not there yet. But if your really dark and you want to be white like a paper then yeah Somthing is wrong with that.

  • Agotrin

    well rhianna and beyonce is too light to claim they bleached. Lighting changes your color in photography to say anything about bleaching unless you are real dark. I am caramel and I could show you so many differernt versions of my complexion, winter, summer, indoors, outdoor, sunshine, I can get realighter than myself to down and out dark-skinned. C’mon, stop reaching and bring the real deal out there. Its just a few real sufferers out there, kim, nicki minaj, michael jackson, and that baseball player guy for sure

  • Telling it

    He wanted to even his skin u idiot he had no choice, he couldn’t just walk with white patches in his face. Why don’t yak stop judging and move on.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ciararouege Ciara Rouege

    Michael Jackson was a celebrity and had a image to uphold. I think he bleached to even his skin tone, so he wouldn’t have to go on stage looking like a cow. At the time that he bleached his skin, was there an method to even him to a dark skin tone? I stupid how people jump to the conclusion that “Oh, who wants to look white.”

  • laylu

    funny thing is they looked better when their skin was natural, what ever shade of black you are born is going to be way more beautiful than the washed out lighter appearance

  • Dinnyq

    Rihanna did not bleach her skin. She just stopped using bronzer! Have you seen her with a tab? She gets very dark. But naturally she is light skinned.

  • http://www.facebook.com/isihou.2ray Isifu Touray

    the last 1 was more like a desiese

  • ghg

    most blacks not are mix with white come out light brown. i think ice t is the only real light skin african american dude i ever saw

  • AJ

    Hardly any of these are victims of skin bleaching. It looks like a combination of bad lighting/overexposure and or airbrushing. I hate when this topic is brought up but not in it’s entirety. What about when light skinned people are pressured by societies standards to tan? Skin cancer, irreversible damage from dangerous UV rays are a known fact and yet people are pressured to look a certain way so they dismiss the deadly facts. There’s no intent to discourage the awareness that needs to brought to the issue of skin lightening, because it IS a problem, when it’s truly present that is. I just don’t agree that every celebrity in these photos have bleached their skin.

  • AJ

    Beyonce did NOT get her skin bleached. That’s just a makeup ad where they airbrush and bright lighting they use when taking makeup ads.

  • d0n’t w0rry b0ut it

    Michael Jackson was a beautiful white woman.

  • Adele

    I am brown and very proud I love me colour. What a shame on thoses celebrity to bleach their skin.

  • Just me

    Some of these are just the lighting though.

  • Pamela Christian

    the sun must never go down

  • http://www.facebook.com/empresssarah420 Sarah Boyd

    vybz kartel bleaches his skin he has songs talking about it.. accused no he does he uses this so called “CAKE SOAP” that lightens the skin tone some blue soap but that’s all a bunch of lies.he is using bleaching cream.. yes true theres alot of products that makes stars alot lighter but if he was using the products he wouldn’t be LIGHT LIKE THAT.! he is bleaching and he is gettin lighter and lighter..

  • CriticXtreme

    In Entertainment being dark can stop your career especially if you’re after world domination. Amazing how these people defect from a color with power to be accepted by paleface. No one has balls to take a stand, no respects the trials that happened to their ancestors, no one thinks nor truly has any creativity or originality. I think next there will be the dumb craze of de-bleaching from white faux skin to black. Black is so beautiful, yet many of you have completely punked the black race.

  • Superiorrobyn

    Don’t forget. Black people can tan as well and those tans fade. Not saying that’s always the case. some are clearly much lighter than their natural skin tone. Also some pictures have weird lighting.

  • Laulau

    Some of theses celebs, like Rihanna and Beyonce, haven’t actually bleached their skin. They are naturally that light but sometimes appear darker due to tanning. But lets say they did bleach their skin, so what ! They are the ones who have to deal with their appearance, so if it makes them happy, let it be. In terms of them setting an example to younger girls, there’s no need for the younger generation to be “copy cats”. Parents should get a handle on that.

  • vermillionskin

    Some people bleach their skin, and I spent so much getting tanned… well thats they way, we want what we cant have.

  • DillPickle101

    Haha do what you want to do to your body its like cutting hair, shaving, makeup, fake fingernails, hair bleaching, we do things to our body all the time, Lol it doesnt matter what ever makes people feel better about themselves.

  • http://twitter.com/LAgirlwithcurls Tyler

    most of these people have not bleached their skin… some def have (Vybz, Michael, Sammy), but Beyonce, Rihanna, and Trina.. I dont think so.. when you have that shade of skin.. your skin color changes constantly.. depending if you tan and the season.. I change colors constantly

  • philly450

    Now that i think about it, Beyonce definitely bronzes to look darker. When she first took off frm destinys child she was targeted towards the black community soley and bronzed to b accepted more, now that she is a mega star even in the white community she has stopped doing so as much. I am lighter than beyonce or similar as a black woman. But i do think she uses creams to even out her skin tone.

  • virtue

    its strange how everyone frying their skin in the sun doesn’t matter, but its not okay to make your skin look lighter. They are equally as damaging but why is everyone concentrating on beyonce, its like bullying. Maybe she doesn’t want to look “white” maybe she wants look exotic (the medium colored tone she is right now). She’s a music artist, not a public official. People buy her music because they like the way she sounds, not her body. Everyone has the right to do whatever they want to their body even if its damaging or what not. some people like curly/straight or wavy hair, some like it blond,black, or brown. I dye my hair red, not because I am ASHAMED of being a brunette, but because I like red hair on me. I feel so bad for her because everyone is bullying her, leave her alone, and mind your own bodies

  • Bella

    Yes you can! I’m the same colour all over. Beyonce is naturally light but most celebrities tan for their career. Stop blaming bleach damn

  • black barbie

    THIS MAKES ME SICK. IM FROM JAMAICA AND IN JAMAICA THEY DO THE THE SAME THING.!! THEY ARE SENDING THE MESSAGE THAT BLACKN IS BAD AND WHITE IS GOOD!!!!!! PPL SHOULDNT BE JUDGED BY SKIN COLOR IT SHOULD BE BY WATS INSIDE OF THEM…… THERE HEARTS.

    First I know first hand that Vitiligo can cause your entire body to turn white. It is different for everyone, there are some cases that are more severe than others. Second several of these people look different based on lights, tanning, makeup etc.

    i said the same thing, i don’t think rihanna bleached her skin at all as a kid she was light skinned

  • Ndasuunye

    I kind of find it unfair that they have micheal jackson up there. His case was not a choice of his own and was caused due to unforseen circumstances. Rihanna disappoints me and beyonce makes me sad

    What a stupid statement” Celebs accused of bleaching their skins”. Is this a crime?

    They are just expressing their mental illness
