Lil Kim is responding to criticism that she’s lightening her skin and/or filtering her photos. In particular, she’s received backlash over a photo that she took with Kim Kardashian at Kanye West’s Yeezy 3 fashion show/listening session. Kim took to Instagram, with the following explanation on Instagram:
Uhunuh it’s a damn shame. The Lil Kim hate is a different type of hate. This video is from the exact same day of the Yeezy fashion show. I’d like to see y’all try to filter this. Videos don’t lie idiots! Some of you are just so miserable and unhappy with yourself that you have nothing else to do than to come on my page and just hate and talk about me on the blogs. It’s clear that I’m lighter in this video than the picture that Kim posted.
Which is still a very gorgeous photo. I lightened up the picture because I like when the makeup pops a little more and you can see the beauty of the makeup that @tasha_mack_mua did.
Kim wanted the picture to look a little darker, because that’s the way she liked it. Kim is my boo and I wanted to repost it but I saw it in a different way. Either way both pictures are completely gorgeous and are a matter of expression of preference of photography. IG is a way for people to express themselves and have fun through pictures and videos! And I love photography, on that note moving right along me and @mainohustlehard got that heat coming ???
