FORMER BASEBALL STAR SAMMY SOSA ADMITS TO BLEACHING HIS SKIN

Before and After

For those of you living outside of the US, who know nothing about baseball (like myself) and therefore not so familiar with Sammy Sosa he is a former major league baseball star. Click here for more information about Sammy. 

I decided to post this story because it’s hilarious, sad and pathetic.

Sammy who hails from the Dominican Republic recently turned up to the Latin Grammy Awards ceremony with lighter skin, straight hair and wore coloured contact lenses.

He was obviously keen to remove the Afro-Latin from out of his system….

When accused of using a skin bleaching agent a close friend of Sammy’s leapt to his defence saying,

“He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson. He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin. Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting. He is in the middle of doing a cleansing process to his skin. The picture is deceiving. He said, ‘If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture.’ People who saw him in person did not react the same way. He can’t believe it is such a big deal. He has always been concerned with the way he looks. Probably just bad timing going to an awards show.”

But today Sammy admits to bleaching his skin….

Via Rhymes With Snitch

“It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some. It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily.” Sammy would not name the cream divulging only that it came from Europe and that, “I’m going to market it, I’m a businessman.”

Sammy self-hatred is a terrible thing my friend. Seek help before it’s too late.

As for marketing this poison because you’re a “businessman”, you deserve a bitch lick across your ridiculous bleached face.

Sammy was once quoted as saying  “I’m not black. I’m Dominican”.

 Idiot!

Singer Jamelia shamed her former boyfriend Pay As You Go group member Maxwell D, during a taping of music quiz Never Mind The Buzz Cocks, which aired last week.

The singer shouted “I recognise him. He screwed me over.” when the rapper came on stage among a group of men in the identity parade round.

Jamelia and Maxwell dated back in 2004. He later went on to sell stories about their relationship to the newspapers.

UK TV: ACTRESS ANGELA GRIFFIN GETS HER OWN DAY TIME TALK SHOW

November 11, 2009 Leave a comment

TV star Angela Griffin has managed to bag her own daytime talk show on Sky Satalite TV.

Angela and Friends can be seen on Sky1 HD and Sky1 -weekdays at 2pm.

This woman fascinates me. She has to be the luckiest TV actress of colour in this country!

Angela got her first big TV role back in 1993 at the age of 17, when she was chosen to play the role of Fiona Middleton in Britain’s longest running soap Coronation Street.

She left the show in 1998 and since then has never been out of work. Unlike most black actresses in this country who still struggle to find suitable/long standing TV roles, Angela here has appeared in nearly every British drama that’s aired on TV over the past 10 years. They include Holby City, Cutting It, Waterloo Road, Down To Earth, and Babyfather.

Whenever casting directors want to cast a black woman in a role they ALWAYS call on Angela.  Angela who is mixed-raced (English mother and West Indian father)  is it seems the acceptable female face of black Britain.

The often snooty film/television industry in this country simply adores her!

Best of luck with the talk show Angela.
