After Tameka “Tiny” Harris revealed on Instagram
then deleted it, only to later repost it that she had permanently changed her eye color many of her followers were outraged. She was accused of being “insecure”, “self-hating”, and “wanting to look like a white woman”. Now, Tiny is finally addressing the hate and says it’s her body and she can do what she wants.
T.I.’s wife stopped by Good Morning America and talked at length about the Brightocular eye color changing procedure she had done in Africa. While speaking to Deborah Roberts, Harris explained that the operation, which is illegal in the U.S., is pretty simple. “They go into the eye and they make a little slit. They take an implant and it’s folded up. They open it [and] spread it over your eye. They told me that the procedure was going to be quick, five to 10 minutes an eye. They woke me up. It was very blurry, then it kind of fades in.” The “What The F*ck You Gon Do” singer added that she chose to do such a drastic change because, “I just wanted to do something different,” she said. “And I have the right to do that. It’s my body.”
While Tameka loves her new ice gray eyes, her hubby Tip was slow to get on board. “He was like, ‘What are you doing?'” Harris said, adding that now the rapper is OK with the change. “He loves them,” she said. “He’s OK with it as long as I’m healthy and don’t have any problems.”
And speaking of problems, Tiny claims that Brightocular has had almost a 100% success rate, GMA spoke to Dr. James C. Tsai, president of New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, who cited several potential risks. “These risks can be sight-threatening and can include glaucoma, cataract and corneal problems,” Tsai stated. Yeesh!
