Thanks for posting that interview Tatee. Very entertaining/sad
Heres my favorite parts
| Dencia: I’ve always been a beautiful girl. It
didn’t matter if I was Black, White, yellow, blue, green. I have always been a
very beautiful girl. It didn’t matter. Do I look more beautiful than I was
before? Did I look more beautiful before than I am now? No. My beauty is who I
am inside and out. It’s what is in my heart, it’s what I do for people, [and]
it’s what I read in the Bible that makes me a better person. Do you get what
I’m saying? I read the Bible a lot and I don’t see any place in the Bible that
says that “If you bleach yourself, if you change your skin color, it’s a sin.”
I have never seen that so please, if you’ve seen it let me know so I can go
read that part of the Bible.|
| EBONY: Good question. So why did you decide to
lighten your skin?
Dencia: Why did I get a couple of shades lighter
than I was? That’s a personal choice.
| EBONY: So…you haven’t bleached your skin, is what
you’re saying? You were tan in the before pictures?
Dencia: Have I…Has my skin lightened from
when…like from the past five years? Yes it has. It has. Has it drastically
lightened? No it hasn’t.
| Dencia: First of all when I did the photoshoot…let
me tell you something|
| “Trust me, I’ve been running this business for the past three
your skin will not cause you cancer. There is no, how do they call this thing?
EBONY: Medical research?
Dencia: Yes, there is no medical research!
EBONY: But there is.
Dencia: That it causes cancer?
Dencia: But guess what? The air you breathe
outside causes you cancer. Everything in the world causes cancer.
| Dencia; You know what? I’m not. First of all, body
lotion cannot stop melanin. Melanin comes from inside, not externally. That’s
why people still have hyperpigmentation. You can bleach your skin all you want
you will still produce melanin. Body lotion does not stop your melanin from
coming. It does not.
EBONY: But it does.
Dencia: I can assure you. It does not. It doesn’t,
you can’t rub oil on your skin and stop melanin
sounds like youre trying to convince yourself, boo
