Sandra “Pepa” Denton is looking fine these days and fans think the star is even aging in reverse!
The “Growing Up Hip Hop” star on Monday uploaded an on-the-set photo to her Instagram page that had fans stunned by her youthful looks.
“RED created for a bad chick! #pepitup #peptalk #signature #red #lips #badbitches #jamaicangayl #jamaica #saltnpepa signature color by @beautybyerick Hair by @queenwink,” the rapper captioned the post, which gave insight into how her look came together.
Fans couldn’t help but gush over how she was giving her 20-year-old daughter, Egypt Criss, a run for her money.
“Looking like your daughter 😍.”
“Curious case of me pepa cause you aging backwards.”
“Hey Egypt 🔥”
“Lol yea Pep you lookin like Egypt 💯💯”
“@darealpepa You and your daughter look so much alike on this picture you look cute.”
“I thought u was your daughter😍”
“Your children look just like. And you look the same as 30 years ago. That’s crazy!!! Beautiful pic 💕”
“I see my baby Egypt 💕💕💕🔥🔥🔥”
The positive responses are a stark contrast to some of the other kinds of reactions Pepa’s looks have generated in the last several months.
In September, fans criticized one-third of Salt-N-Pepa for sporting a blond wig and appearing to lighten up her complexion.
“Dame pepaaa you happy cause you are now White on the outside? SISTAR who hurt you?”
“U look white!? I knew you when you was Black… SaLT N Pepa??? Midlife crisis.”
“Who dis white woman? I’m sad that you turn into a white lady but as long as you’re happy.”
And back in April, Criss was forced to defend her mother against a detractor who blasted Pep for appearing to enhance the curves of her body. Pepa had uploaded a photo of herself in a one-piece bathing suit with her hips appearing to be wider.
“@storyang fake curves….altered body..and NOT a good one,” was one of the Instagram user’s comments.
“@ichloecakes my mom loves her body so if she’s happy then I’m happy,” Criss said in response to the negativity.
