“We had another girl for the lead but I had an idea where I just wanted a little bit of a darker tone [girl] in the video,“ Kendrick tells Miss Info. Kendrick was sick of seeing only light-skinned video models. “It’s almost like a color blind industry where there’s only one type of appeal to the camera.“
“I give [Brittany] the credit, too, for just being there, and being a natural, genuine young lady. She wasn’t all in the open, trying to jump in [front] of the camera. She was cool, just chilling. I always kept in the back of my mind like ‘you don’t ever see this tone of a woman in videos. ‘” Kendrick says, “No disrespect, I love all women, period. But at the same time, I still feels like it needs that balance.“
no shade to light skin girls yall are gorgeous!!!!!! im just so proud of him, drake, wale, and rick ross so far showing love to the women of darker women... people don't understand the shade that is thrown at young dark skin girls i am comfortable in my skin now as a young adult but i felt like so unwanted as a pre teen and early teen. it kills me when i see the darkest men clown on dark skin girls all i can think about is isn't your mother and sister dark? i laugh bout it now because that is obviously the not the kind of man i would want still doesn't make you feel good when your young. people act like it is not a problem but it is very much so.
i will not be getting any of her clothes
