Lil Kim is denying reports that she’s attempting to lighten her complexion by bleaching her skin. The rapper took to Instagram on Saturday to combat the rumor started after she posted this image of herself standing next to Kim Kardashian at the Yeezy Season 3 fashion show.
According to Lil Kim, she appears lighter in the flick than she does in real life because of a filter she used, not because she’s bleaching her skin. “The Lil Kim hate is a different type of hate … I lightened up the picture because I like when the makeup pops a little more and you can see the beauty of the makeup that @tasha_mack_mua did. Kim [Kardashian] wanted the picture to look a little darker, because that’s the way she liked it.”
“Either way both pictures are completely gorgeous and are a matter of expression of preference of photography. IG is a way for people to express themselves and have fun through pictures and videos! And I love photography, on that note moving right along,” she continued.
Glad Kim could set the record straight for us.
