After a snippet of the video for Freak was released online last week some of us were outraged.You see Estelle deciding to sport a black boot polish look didn’t go down to well.
But the singer doesn’t see what all the fuss is about and says,
“Those comments were the first thing I saw after we released the video trailer,” Estelle said. “It’s like, ‘Are you joking?'”
“I think [people] need to wait to see the clip. I could defend myself, but it’s just silly. I’m black, so how do I do blackface? Missy [Elliott] did the same thing [with her video] ‘She’s A Bitch’. I refuse to defend it. I didn’t put any white ring around my mouth – never that.”
Possessing sex appeal is key when singing a song that explores sexual themes…..
