Dolled Up Keyshia Cole’s Look Finds Some ‘She Looks Different’ Nitpickers

Grammy-nominated R&B singer Keyshia Cole was met with criticism for a recent photograph she uploaded and then later deleted on social media.

The “I Remember” singer attended the 27th Annual Bounce TV Trumpet Awards on Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in metro Atlanta. She took to Instagram on Sunday and shared a photo of herself as she was at the award show that evening.

Cole donned a black strapless dress from Balmain’s 2019 Resort Paris Collection. She accentuated the outfit with multi-colored drop earrings from BAROQCO and wore her spiced red tresses in a half-up, half-down hairstyle.

“Back for the 99 and the 2000’s,” Cole wrote in her Instagram caption. “Thank you Trumpet Awards for a great night!”

Cole’s now-deleted post was slammed by fans who felt something was “off” with her appearance. Some people seemingly blamed her hairstylist for not “plucking the frontal” of her lace front wig, while others accused Cole of having plastic surgery.

“Something looks different,” one fan wrote. “Her face or her frontal.”

Another added, “Hmmm. She looks different. Looking a little lil Kim-ish.”

One of Cole’s fans interjected a forceful counter to the plastic surgery rumors.

“Don’t none of ya’ll start with the plastic surgery bull,” the person wrote. “@keyshiacole was on live earlier & she still the same KC we all know. It’s just makeup do your research before making comments on something you know nothing about.”

Cole was one of many celebrities who attended the 2019 Trumpet Awards. Other celebs including R&B singer Ashanti, Grammy Award winner India Arie, rappers Da Brat, Lil’ Mama, YoYo, and many others.

The show was held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in metro Atlanta and was hosted by comedian and actress Wendy Raquel Robinson and R&B artist Tank.

The Trumpet Awards have honored the achievements, contributions and success of African-Americans for the past 26 years. The show will be telecast on Bounce on Sunday, Feb. 17, at EST.
