Troubled Rapper Sports Lighter Complexion On Brazilian Tour
Azealia Banks sported a noticeably lighter complexion before performing in Brazil over the weekend.
Pricey skin lightening cream Whitenicious featured Banks on its Instagram Sunday, showing the grinning “212” artist with a remarkably light skinned look.
The pint sized rapper, who is currently facing assault charges in NYC for allegedly biting the breast of a club security guard last year, tweeted back in April that she thrilled to receive some Whitenicious products. The recent photo may have been the rapper showing off the results.
“Mother @Whitenicious just sent me summa dat good good. #bless,” Banks tweeted April 30.
Whitenicious spokeswoman Rebecca Matamba told BOSSIP that Banks is just one of the company’s celebrity clientele.
“She loves Whitenicious and has tweeted about it multiple times…She is one of our many celebrity clients but she is just one of the celebrities who uses it and doesn’t care who knows,” Matamba said.
“She is just a beautiful woman experimenting and trying new things and she looks great,” the rep added. “People should focus on her talent instead of her skin. After all she’s in an industry where everyone is getting a little nip and tuck here and there, the difference is others lie about it but she is open about it, because it’s her body not anyone’s and people should focus on her music.”
Touted as a luxury skincare line, “Whitenicious” products – which cost around $150 a pop – are fronted by African pop star Dencia and are billed as safe and approved by dermatologists for all skin types.
