Spice Tackles Bleaching Rumors & Makes A Statement w/ 'Black Hypocrisy' [VIDEO]

Spice shocked the hip hop and reggae world yesterday when a lighter skinned version of herself with what looked like bleached skin turned up on social media.

The artist did an interview explaining why she decided to turn her skin a lighter shade, and it had tons of people talking.

Today (Oct 23), we learned that it was all to make a very important statement in the black community as she addresses the topic of colorism in the video for her latest single "Black Hypocrisy."

It begins as the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star addresses a room full of young women, telling them "I had a dream that one day black women will start supporting each other rather than bashing each other" before later showing a lighter shade of herself as she addresses how lighter skinned women are seen as smarter, prettier, and more successful in her own community and socially across the globe.
