Rapper A$AP Rocky performed during Rihanna’s Diamonds World Tour at Barclays Center on May 5. The Pretty Flaco, draped in a sportsy getup, opened up for the “Pour it Up” songstress before a Big Apple crowd.
A$AP, who is the opening act on Rihanna’s 2013 Diamonds World Tour, recently chatted with DC radio station 93.9 WKYS FM and further elaborated on the comment he made where he expressed that only fair-skinned women can get away with wearing red lipstick.
I’m sorry if it hurt any dark-skinned girls’ feelings. Black girls just, ah man, went crazy. They just took it how they took it. This is actually my second time talking about it cause I really don’t really look at it as an issue. If people get upset at that I think it’s petty at the same time. It’s like they damn near wanna Rick Ross boycott me right now, over some lipstick controversy. Black girls, you know how sensitive they are, but they our sisters, man. It is what is man. I come from a black home, so I know how sensitive black women can be. Especially when you talking about they looks or something like that. You can’t say nothing about they glasses, they nails, none of that because then you’re a womanizer or you’re a racist. I don’t know how I’m going to be racist. I have to wake up and look at my black ass in the mirror everyday. It’s like, what are you talking about? But it is what it is, man. I’m proud to be black.
But really, who is A$AP to be offering up any beauty advice?
The Diamonds World Tour kicked off March 8, and is scheduled to hit 28 cities across North America.
