Lightenin’ Up: 10 Celebrities Accused Of Bleaching Their Skin

- By Bossip Staff

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. More at HipHopWired.com

    • kalifa

      self hate and the twisted belief that whiter lighter skin is better….i hope they enjoy their skin cancer.

    • WTF!

      Rihanna, Trina & Beyonce should be off the list. It is clear they don’t bleach anyone their color knows this. However Iman looked like a totally different person back in the day, wow!

    • butta

      BLACK IS BEUTIFUL!!

  • MISS ME WIT DAT BULLSH#T

    Some of them look as though they may be sick with something.

  • Lacey (Lord Help Me Find My White Prince)

    Lil Kim From Black to Latina!!!

    • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

      No hon,she went from AA to Asian lmao & smdh

  • Brooklyn Hampshire

    how ironic is it that after they bleached their skin they actually made themselves look worse, all of them imo were fine before.

  • girl x

    I wish I could be darker, but I’m proud of my skin! Bump using anything to lighten/darken anything, you don’t know what could happen to your skin 20 years from now. So insecure, these people with money are..

    • Kadadah

      How ironic that you’re insecure yourself…hmmm. You wish you were darker?

  • TRUFF IS...not all that glitters is gold

    looks about right….turds

  • BritishGirl

    Do they honestly think that we’re not gonna notice? It’s not even white people telling them they’re too dark because they were famous THEN bleached. Get it together people 😦

  • tommykimon

    They stupid black is beautiful,
    They need to learn how to love themselves.

  • Getem

    You can always tell by the hair scalp, knuckles and blotches on the face.

  • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

    From this list it’s a known FACT Latoya Jackson,Michael(r.i.p) & Lil Kim have done ALOT more than just bleaching..I mean,they’ve have had every cosmetic procedure under the sun!

    Now as far as Iman goes,I must say I’m REALLY shocked @ her transformation/morphing…I had no idea she was originally that dark & alot more ethnic looking. She too has had numerous procedures done..Oh well,that’s Hollyweird for ya!

  • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

    SN:It’s funny how some blacks wish & are willing to do just about anything/everything to be “lighter” or resemble another race/ethnicity other than black however,I for one,love the summertime & going to the beach to sun bathe,having my body drench in tanning oil/lotion to obtain a darker/richer hue..Oh the irony..SMDH!

    Being blessed with melanin is one of the BEST gifts ever from God black people so love/cherish it or try doing so @ least.

  • TiA

    The ones who really bleached their skin look terrible afterwards! That is why not to bleach your skin or you will look like Lil Kim or Sammy Sosa! Blacks can get naturally lighter. I have. I moved from GA to Missouri and my relatives make jokes about how I need more sun because I use to be darker.

  • Mabel

    Iman’s transformation is like night and day.

    • clockwork

      i agree

  • Caribbean Queen

    LOVE IT!! I BLEACH ALSO AND I LOOK SO CUTE. I KNOW WHAT YOUR GONNA SAY. “BUT UR KIDS ARE STILL GONNA BE DARK!!” WAY AHEAD OF YOU, I AM PREGNANT FOR A WHITE MAN.

  • LOL

    @carribean queen dont you know just because you are having a baby by a white man does NOT I repeat does NOT mean your babies will come out light with good hair…just because you are such a self hater they are comming out dark and nappy headed =).Black is BEAUTIFUL baby…sell out ho3.

    • Caribbean Queen

      I WILL NOT HAVE DARK BABIES HOE.

  • imjustsayin

    white people tan and black people bleach
    people just want what they cant naturally have
    o well to bad for THEM i love my deep brown skin

  • imjustsayin

    products with skin bleach is meant to even out skin tones and should only be applied on dark spots like your mustache area or a five o clock shadow you may have
    but they got the money to find stronger shyt and place it all over their body

  • Allie

    Loving yourself is so important, this just goes to show that there are a lot of celebs that really don’t like the way they look, even though they are praised for their beauty…really sad

  • Cali

    LaToya has always been light and so has Rihanna and Beyonce -people need to realize that BLACK PEOPLE DO TAN so Black skin CAN be lighter and darker. Also, lets not forget lighting and make-up, however….as for the others DAMN lol. Iman was a shocker, and so was Trina.

  • klad

    While I believe that Sosa,Trina, Little Kim, M.J., and that Jamaican Rapper bleached their skin, I’m not sure you can make that allegation concerning the other celebs. I think lighting and where the celebs are from make an impact. Rihanna is from the Islands and Iman is from Africa, everyone knows that you are under heavy sun in those places and people’s skin may appear darker. It happens to me a lot during the summer time. I’m much darker in the summer than in the winter.

  • bouyant

    @caribbean queen, you lying smelly hoodrat, u are not from the caribbean. I hope the skin bleach choke your ugly arse. and yes u will have a ugly baby. ugh!

    I just want to make an observation about those who obviously bleached Sosa, lil Kim, iman and that raggae Guy you can tell Kim and iman used quality stuff and did it slowly probably with the help of a dermatologist because their skin is even and smooth but Sosa and that other Guy all blotchy like they used regular bleach straight from under the kitchen cabinet

  • s.b.s

    Beyonce does not bleach shes light skin, and so is rihanna so idk why their on the list. Iman??? Damn thats just a DISGRACE

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/unroyal Jo

    Beyonce and Rihanna are naturally lighter.

    C’mon, people who do that need professional help. Oprah did not bleach and became the queen of TV. Michael Jordan was the first ever super endorsed sportsman and his dark.
