"I'M NOT THE AVERAGE GIRL IN A VIDEO", APPARENTLY SHE IS! LADIES AREN'T COMFORTABLE IN THEIR OWN SKIN. IF YOU DON'T LOVE YOURSELF, THEN WHO WILL? THIS IS A TRUE SHOCK! SHE MADE SEVERAL SONGS BASICALLY PREACHING ABOUT ACCEPTING HERSELF THE WAY SHE WAS BORN. AND NOW THIS? HER FANS WOULD PROBABLY VIEW HER AS A HYPOCRITE, IJS. DAMN THIS, IT'S TOO DAMN EARLY!

The saddest bullshty of all is when you watch these black men come on here criticizing her when you are the main source for it. Black men's self hate is sad. If black women only praised light bright and white men, and never gave love to chocolate brothers black men would be be bleaching more too. Good thing bw aren't as open to all shades of black.


Ok Alright

Black women talk about how strong they are but continue to bleach their skin and walk around with the hair texture of another race of women. It is disgusting and pathetic.

BLEACH CREAM CANNOT LIGHTEN YOUR SKIN 6 SHADES. THE CELEBRITY SECRET THAT LIGHTENS MOFO'S FROM HEAD GO TOE TO SCALP ON YOUR LEGS EVENINGLY IS AN IV INJECTION OF GLUTATHIONE AND VITAMIN C. IT'S DONE IN ASIA THE UK AND PARTS OF AFRICA. CELEBS GET THIS SHIT AND SAY THEY NEVER BLEACHED BECAUSE TECHNICALLY THE INJECTION IS NOT BLEACH. IT'S A MEGADOSE OF AN ANTIOXIDENT PLUS VIT C THAT HAS THE SIDE EFFECT OF LIGHTENING THE HECK OUT OF YOUR SKIN FROM HEAD TO TOE. ITS EXPENSIVE AND YOU HAVE TO REPEAT EVERY 4 MONTHS. I HAVE A FOREIGN FRIEND THAT WENT FROM DARK BROWN TO FAITH EVANS COLOR IN 2 MONTHS. ANYWAY THATS THE BIG RICH PEOPLE PROCEDURE SECRET CAUSE THE WORLD IS BRAINWASHED INTO THINKING WHITE SKIN IS THE RIGHT SKIN.

I'm not surprised she always had a complex about her complexion. Her nose looks altered too, another one bites the dust. White women alter themselves for Black features and Black women alter themselves for White features. Its a never ending cycle until women learn to accept and love their NATURAL beauty. Unfortunately that won't happen anytime soon.

Ok, folks, since it was a professional picture it there were additional extremities, it was airbrushed, photoshopped, and every other thing under the sun. It was proofed and given final approval by the powers that be, and publicists have used the pic on her fan pages to drive marketing. Now if she happily went along with it (instead of begrudgingly) then (for those who care about the issue in the first place) THAT would be the issue to take up. Personally I could not care any less than I do now about what she looks like or looked like. In any event, the best way to accurately see if she's really so "changed" is to see a natural picture of her...like a pap pic or even a red carpet-type pic................................not a professionally taken and manipulated picture. Seriously, MTO... You're too simple for your own good. And approve my avatar... it's been MONTHS

No matter how you slice it or excuse you give it: photoshop, lighting or whatEVER, India Arie saw these photos before they reached the market. She wrote a whole song about being content with everything about herself only to show up in 2013 like this? It’s not all her fault though because shes only doing what people “accept,” and see as “beautiful.” In this industry, all that afrocentricity and mother earth eventually comes unearthed (if they wanna hang and compete). Whoda thunk Erykah Badu would come from head and body wrapped to getting naked in a video (despite its “artist” reason). They ALL succumb to the fuggary.

Check out the movie Five Heartbeats. There's a part in the movie where the white record industry wanted to put white folks on the cover to sell black albums. Back in the day if you look at some of the black album cover you'll see white people or another image like water, the sun or flowers. They felt that having black faces on the cover wouldn't sale to the white masses. If Indiie approved of this type of album cover to have more crossover sales then she is a K oon and she will lose her black audience. There is know excuse she can every give for this type of sh!t...

Ransomed/BronzeReign/Datouch (all the same person) You're beyond psychotic. You obviously haven't been taking your meds lately. Instead of making asinine comments on the internet, you should be home taking care of your kids. Why are you so obsessed with dark skinned women? I mean really. Nobody goes on a neurotic rampage online every single day against Black women unless they are jealous or insecure themselves. I think you're just not right in the head...

OMEGA1234 flag as inappropriate/spam I JUST READ SOMEWHERE THAT THIS ALBUM AND PICTURE IS ACTUALLY SHADE TOWARDS ALL THE BLACK CELEBRITIES THAT ARE BLEACHING TO BE ACCEPTED. I WILL SIT AND WATCH HOW THIS PLAYS OUT.**********Even before I saw your comment, I knew this the second after I finished reading mto's topic. I am the only one with sense here??!!!?!!!?!!??? Do you truly believe India would lighten her skin/allow photographer to lighten her skin and SELL OUT?!??!? The clue is in the name of the song Coco Butter!!!! She couldn't name it Ambi or Nadinola! Those are brand names. Here it is guys: This photo is obviously promotion for the song. Probably the cover of it's single. She's showing how she looks "bleached up." Basically the photo goes with the song. Not because she's selling it out!!!!! I can't believe everyone on here missed that!!!!

Ooops well now I see I'm definitely correct as I missed where the photo even has the name of the song on it. It's simply imagery/marketing to drive home the point of her song! You know like if someone had a song called I'm a Queen, they would dress us in royal attire to fit the song. Calm down people!!!

@uncommom......I 100% agree with you. datouch & bronze reign ARE the same person. I'll take it a step farther & say datouch (her alter-egos too) are manical white envious white females, pretending to be males who hate black women!! This shows just how fake these women-of-color wannabes are "inside &out". These "white female" imposters all over the internet spreading lies to sabatoge BW's beauty/character out of envy. What gives them away is their daily over-the-top racist anti-black women rants. So BW when you read racist, ridiculous BS targeting us, it's because they feel the BW is her her competition!!!

OMG!! I'm so tired of the weave bashers constantly trying to put down black women character becuz they put hair in their heads that they can take out!! I'm a beautiful brown woman w/long, thick hair. But I wear weaves sometime 2 switch up my style or protect my own hair from pressing and flat ironing!! To the dummies that make excuses 4 white women that wear weaves, what about white women who tan 2 look like us!! N last I check ur ass can die from tanning, umm skin cancer!! Last i checked you cant die from wearing a weave!! Ppl r so dumb. So itz ok to tan ur skin to look darker all while risking cancer, but a black woman that wear weave has self hatred??? Really!!! Dumb ass ppl i swear

From inside the industry, I will say, as India Arie herself has admitted, she has an inferiority complex when it comes to her browner skin and less than model looks. She is talented beyond reason, however, she does compare herself to Beyonce and Alicia Keys. I was at the Grammy awards the year she was nominated, but Beyonce and Alicia swept the awards. I saw and heard it all. But nevertheless, the truth of this matter is that her skin was lightened, she knew about it, approved it, expected some backlash but not this much and probably for the first time, feels that she looks more beautiful than she actually believes herself to be. We are witnessing a talented young lady's intense internal struggle with severe insecurities. Period.

She's a Bo-Ho -- That's what you call a FAKE Black Bohemian woman. There are LOT'S of them floating around these days. ALSO - I've been a professional photographer for over ten years: Baby gurl is flat out lying. Studio lights CANNOT turn chocolate skin to redbone skin. NOT POSSIBLE. So either the pic has been photoshopped or she got bleached - Either way, it's pathetic.

Interesting that some black women are so psychotic that they believe a black man jumped inside of Arie's had and MADE her screw up her skin. You pow-wee-ful, inna-penent, edumacated, scroung black women can't take responsibility for anything! Not even your own skin, hair and nose.

if she did do that then it seems it kinda goes against her image a little bit? and black men are just pathetic. they talk much s*** about black womens bad attitudes and about their hair etc... well what about their stuck up, loud, in yo face attitudes? what about their nappy a** hair and bad skin? the only thing they got going for them is the myth. lol. and in most cases it is a myth. so sick of them. I think twice about dating black men

I agree with chococherry. she should play nina simone cause she black like nina not Hispanic like the other chick. im light skinned and I don't know why india would set herself up for all the hatred that will come her way from other women, especially black women but white women too for her lighter skin. its not worth it. plus, she has nice skin tone. once you start you wont be able to stop. just look at M.J.

Idk it might be a diss to the entertainment industry but it has started a lot of controversy, which is good cuz blacks are talking about self-hate. We need to have this conversation. MY OPINION: Yes, im tired of seeing so many black women "depending" on weaves. Pay attention to my wording. I said "depending" because I don't think there is anything wrong with wearing weave SOMETIMES. Black ppl in general need to stop copying celebrities. Most black female celebrities wear weaves cuz they are so busy that they don't have time to do it themselves, they can AFFORD it, & it is professionally done. The average black female can & should take the time to care for HER hair (relaxed or natural)! She can't afford the weave or a professional stylist to do it. That's why it often looks a mess. I, personally, don't see anything wrong with relaxers. They just make kinky hair more manageable. It's not the only option, but it is an option. White women get perms to make their hair curly & more manageable so they don't have to spend hours curling & adding tons of Aqua Net hairspray to their thin, bone straight, stringy texture. Whether you are relaxed or natural, just TAKE CARE OF IT! As far as celebrities who sell out, the ones that sell out late in their careers didn't invest their money wisely. If they had, they wouldn't feel the need to sell out. The young ones trying to get in the game are too lazy to grind it out or too prideful to accept that maybe they're not in the right field. Some need to go home & get a city job. That is all.

Let the person that photoshopped this know that they forgot to seal up that calf ...... they left some of the skin hanging and sticking up...... and they need to practice laying skin over a body.BETTER.....and double check their work before releasing it to the public... as REAL......
