Looks like Meagan got bit by the dark roots blonde hair bug because she has been rocking the mess out of that blonde bob pictured above. Meagan hasn’t been having a great week despite how great she looks. She has been accused of bleaching her skin which is the same old accusation many black women celebrities find themselves faced with for some odd reason.
She took to Instagram to address the rumors:
“I can’t believe I’m actually going to address this nonsense but I have young women who follow me so I think it’s important to give clarity because I believe that Black and every other color is beautiful. This is for those who believe that I would actually bleach my face and entire body to try to be lighter skinned. Umm No Ma’am. First off? I LOVE my complexion no matter what side of the spectrum I’m at at any particular time.
Ima let you finish Meagan, but can I just say it really could just be due to lighting and makeup? We all know how strange skin highlights can make us look. Ok love, carry on:
My skin looks various different ways for various reasons from lighting to makeup, style of photography or something as simple as weather and what coast I’m working on at any given time. This is my complexion: the one I was born with. I tend to get lighter and darker depending upon how much sun I do or don’t get. I love the sun. I’m a Cali gal but as I’ve gotten older and especially more recently, since I’ve gotten into my ’30s, I tend not to be in the sun as much because it ages your skin terribly.
Simply put, I’m opting to preserve my skin by protecting it and only making exceptions for vacations. Also, for the rest of the people who feel as though my blonde hair is yet another way to look more Caucasian? ‘GET. YO. LIFE.’ I went blonde for the same reason I went purple and for the same reason I’ll probably go Green at some point because I felt like it. Once again, I acknowledge I really shouldn’t have taken the time to respond to this foolishness, but I felt moved to say something for every little brown girl that follows my page. I’m proud to be me brown or tan, thick or thin, natural hair or weave or dyed purple or green. God bless.”

Only morons believe this skin bleaching BS (with the exception of Beyonce & maybe Rihanna), yet no one says how white ppl darken their skin with fake tans and burning in the sun. Most black ppl aren’t desperate to be white as everyone would have the world to believe *eyeroll*. Last I checked black people’s skin changes throughout the year through various shades.
