Speak Out!

Hey Fly Girls!

So tell me if you or a friend have ever used #TeamLightSkin or #TeamDarkSkin on Twitter or Instagram? Be honest.  Well,  you know at the end of the day EVERY shade is just as  gorgeous as  the next, right? Absolutely! Even though the music industry might show one shade of female as being more beautiful, new artists are breaking down those stereotypes and embracing all girls.  Compton rapper, Kendrick Lamar is trying to do his part to diversify the type of beauty seen in the music industry. The hot lyricist has been getting praise lately for not only his dope album but also having a darker tone model, Brittany Sky, in his new vid Poetic Justice. Check it out…

“We had another girl for the lead but I had an idea where I just wanted a little bit of a darker tone [girl] in the video,“ Kendrick tells Miss Info. “It’s almost like a color blind industry where there’s only one type of appeal to the camera.“

“I give [Brittany] the credit, too, for just being there, and being a natural, genuine young lady. She wasn’t  all in the open, trying to jump in [front] of the camera. She was cool, just chilling. I always kept in the back of my mind  like ‘you don’t ever see this tone of a woman in videos. ‘” Kendrick says, “No disrespect, I love all women, period. But at the same time, I still feels like it needs that balance.“

Check out the interview he had with Miss Info discussing his choice in his new vid…


Do you think it’s a division between darker tone females and lighter tone females at your school? If so, how do YOU think we can close the gap and accept everybody’s beauty?
