K. Michelle‘s appearance is leaving folks with a large number of questions.
The R&B singer apparently dropped in on a country music club this week, draped in her cowgirl attire. Social media users were thrown off by her looks, accusing the star of looking white-washed.
She took to her Instagram feed Wednesday evening and wrote in her caption, “There’s no greater feeling than just living your OWN life. Everyday doesn’t have to be heavy. It’s ok to take a happy break 🌻.”
She posed for a snapshot in a tan cowgirl hat, a navy blue collared shirt, jeans and a pair of thigh-high brown leather boots. But it wasn’t the singer’s ensemble who grabbed folks attention, it was her seemingly lighter skin complexion.
“I thought this was a white woman 😫.”
“Who is this white woman? Wow she look so different.”
“Who dat 🤔. How you get so light I do not recognize you anymore 🤷.”
“I had absolutely no idea who this was 🤦. I want the old k back you look so different.”
K. Michelle has been accused of skin whitening in the past, but she’s denied doing so. She did however admit to having recent facial surgery that folks suspected.
She wrote in an Instagram post last September, “Your own people will make fun of you when you really on some positive s–t. … So let’s clear it 1. Bleaching- Never done it and don’t even know how. … Now what? My nose-Yes it’s pinched.”
In past interviews, she’s also revealed she suffers from a skin condition called rosacea, which can sometimes cause skin discoloration.
Despite the backlash, K. Michelle’s received on her appearance, there has been an overwhelming amount of support from fans who support her.
