Wow, Sammy Sosa is sounding more and more confused by the day.
He has finally admitted to what we all knew – that he is bleaching his skin.
In an interview on Primer Impacto, a programme on the Spanish-language network Univision, Sammy said:
“It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some.
It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily.I want people to calm down and realize that I didn’t do any of this with mal intentions.”
Asked about the obvious Michael Jackson comparison, Sammy somehow doesn’t see the connection, saying:
“What happened was that I had been using the cream for a long time and that, combined with the bright TV lights, made my face look whiter than it really is. I don’t think I look like Michael Jackson.”
He says that his skin bleaching is a completely different kettle of fish.
“I respect him very much and may God keep him in his glory, but this is not the case with me.
I’m truly shocked that this has gotten so big. This has resonated more than the actual [Latin] Grammys.”
Oh, and if that was not enough for you, he has said that he plans to market the “miracle cream” which can only be bought in Europe.
“I’m going to market it, I’m a businessman.”
Lawd help us.
