FOTOS! Sammy Sosa going blanco? After those fotos last week, Sammy Sosa appeared EN VIVO on Univision and admitted to using a bleaching cream on his face.
Sammy Sosa told the details of the bleaching cream to Univision’s Tony Dandrades on “Primer Impacto”
“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.”
Sosa also admitted to using fake colored eye contacts to make his eyes green last week.
“I use a cream to keep my skin smooth and soft. I apply it before I go to bed. When I was playing for Chicago all those years, I was in the sun a lot for 1 o’clock games. The flashes (from the cameras) also made my skin look lighter. I’m surprised with the controversy this has caused.”
Sosa told Primer Impacto further:
“I’m doing well, doing well, thanks to God. A little surprised by the tsunami of attention.”
When asked if he’s trying to be like Michael Jackson, Sosa said: “Not at all, I respect him very much. I’m not a racist. I’m not like that. I’m just a happy person.”
Sosa still has not identified the cream that bleached his skin. But he did state he hopes to be the spokesman for the product. Is this something you would buy?
Sosa also confessed he had fake colored contacts on. “[I wanted to ] try something different. I’m not trying to be superficial.”
