A$AP Rocky‘s recent statement about how only ‘light-skinned’ women can wear red lipstick caused an uproar recently.

He’s taking his words back and wanted to clear up his intentions.

“I’m sorry if it hurt any dark-skinned girls’ feelings,” Rocky told DC radio station 93.9 WKYS FM. However, in the next breath states that he meant what he said at the time. Here’s more from Rocky’s comments:

“Black girls just, ah man, went crazy. They just took it how they took it. This is actually my second time talking about it cause I really don’t really look at it as an issue. If people get upset at that I think it’s petty at the same time. It’s like they damn near wanna Rick Ross boycott me right now, over some lipstick controversy. Black girls, you know how sensitive they are, but they our sisters, man. It is what is man. I come from a black home, so I know how sensitive black women can be. Especially when you talking about they looks or something like that. You can’t say nothing about they glasses, they nails, none of that because then you’re a womanizer or you’re a racist. I don’t know how I’m going to be racist. I have to wake up and look at my black ass in the mirror everyday. It’s like, what are you talking about? But it is what it is, man. I’m proud to be black.”

What do you think? Was A$AP Rocky wrong in his comment about dark-skinned women?

  1. It is his opinion, however dude needs speech therapy to help him articulate his thoughts..I’m really tired of all these uneducated entertainers getting mics and cameras in their faces as people ask their opinions about things, especially the black entertainers with little or no education. Or at the very least they behave and speak as if they have no education. Who knows, it could be a front and they might be Harvard educated but are trying to have some street cred..
    Anyway, I would really like to see more stories on people who are helping make a difference in today’s society.
    Too much spotlight is given to folks today who are talking loud and saying nothing. Like the rapper who recently received a sexual favor on stage or this nut making references to dark skinned women and red lip stick..
    How shallow have we as a people become where we are interested in stories like these?

    • I hear you Anthony. But the bar has been set so low for today’s entertainers that I fully expect the new rap song by the Tanning Bed Mom to blow up. It seem that for “stars” today, the more illiterate, degrading and vulgar, the more money people spend to see and hear them. Sad, but true.

  2. In this man’s opinion, dark skinned sisters don’t look good in red lipstick. That’s his opinion. It’s no different than me expressing my opinion that Japanese women look ridiculous with platinum hair. Why is everyone so angry about one man’s opinion?

    it’s lipstick folks!! And everyone is entitiled to their own opinion. If you are dark-skinned and like to wear red lipstick…carry on. Long as you like it, they gotta love it. End of story!

    Why would anyone care what this uneducated person thinks? I have never even heard of him before and will easily forget his name before the hour is up.

    Sounds like someone hates themselves but hey If that’s how he feels good for him I just could care less!! #kickrocksman!.

  6. His obvious educational shortcomings aside (how can you communicate any worthwhile lyrics — if you have any — when you don’t know how to speak the English language) this is yet another sell by controversy that is getting very tired as a U.S. marketing strategy. Rap is quickly becoming a non-entity as an art for this very reason and the labels should bear the responsibility for that.

      I agree 100%. Who keeps giving these imbeciles a mic and exposing the rest of us to their brain-rotting stupidity? We need to take the boycotts straight to the top and go after the execs…

      • Deborah M on said:

        I completely agree. The boycott is the main way. Those in power are corrupted in this industry but they will respond to loss of profits. Also, promoting and respecting the rappers that are conscious and out there already speaking the truth. First time I heard the most prejudiced lyrics coming out of the mouths of idiots I wanted to collectively slap them and summon the spirit of Malcolm X to jolt the awake and knock ‘me around a bit and shake some sense into them.
