“I think that India.Arie, ‘brown skin, you know I love your brown skin’ — I’ve heard women and men talk about what they have because I guess, and Syleena, you can attest to this, you guys start inward with what you all sing about. Meaning, what your experience is and what you have gone through or whatever. So, for her to celebrate her skin, I don’t think that there’s anything wrong with that. I just think that it’s because it’s Black Lives Matter, is it that Black Lives Matter because we talkin’ about dark-skin Black Lives Matter or light-skin and cappuccino and [caramel] and espresso and all of that matters?”

Buy Vivica Fox did not cosign Danileigh’s song:

“I’m gonna keep that 100 percent real, being a person that like, dated a rapper back in the day. She did that to get back at that baby mama and to throw that in her face and it absolutely backfired on her. And then to say ‘I dated a whole Black man’ this and the third. Young lady, be careful,” she said.
