Mixed Nuts: Twitter shades Tinashe to shame for blaming “colorism” for her struggly career

2 OFF…

 

Today is everything BUT a good day to be Tinashe as Twitter regulators are dragging the half-Danish/ half-Zimbabwean “2 On” vocalist back to the Mother Land by her nose hairs for presumably blaming colorism for her inability to reach superstardom status in the music industry…

GIRLFRIENNNNNND…

During a recent interview with The Guardian, the 24-year-old California bred crooner spilled guts on the socially structured stalls she’s encountered throughout her brief time the limelight. Pointing to the few reigning black female queens of the Pop/R&B genres, Tinashe suggested her success has been stunted thanks to black America’s unwillingness to accept her because of her multicultural ethnicity.
“There’s colorism involved in the black community, which is very apparent. It’s about trying to find a balance where I’m a mixed woman, and sometimes I feel like I don’t fully fit into the black community,” the “Superlove” songstress stated. “They don’t fully accept me, even though I see myself as a black woman. That disconnect is confusing sometimes. I am what I am.”

Touching on the topic of the many inequalities force upon black women in the industry, Tinashe then highlighted the unspoken competition for space that doesn’t exist for her male counterparts…
“Recently, my cousin was with a friend of a friend, who was in high school, and she was like, “I’m a fan of Kehlani,” but in a way that was like, “So I can’t be a fan of Tinashe, too.” Then my friend posed the question, “Why not be a fan of both?” It’s kind of like sport; people feel like they have to pick a side… There are hundreds of [male] rappers that all look the same, that sound the same, but if you’re a black woman, you’re either Beyoncé or Rihanna. It’s very, very strange… It felt like they almost had to sacrifice someone because there wasn’t enough room, which isn’t true.”
WELL…
Without missing a beat, the almighty Twitter counsel rushed to their keyboards to drop-off their weighty two cents on Tinashe’s scapegoating colorism for her lackluster littiness…
ITS NOT PRETTY…

LMAOOO…
In light of the backlash she received, the Joyride creator hopped on to the social medium to set the record straight on her intentions…
“I was not talking about colorism in the industry. This is taken out of context,” Tinashe served. “The article framed it as such, about success in music, where as the conversation we had was about my experiences growing up in general.”
IIGHT SIS…..*SIDE EYE*
