Of course Alicia Keys is a light-skinned black woman, but her wax figure recently unveiled at Madame Tussauds‘ infamous wax museum in New York City (in celebration of the 10th anniversary of her incredible debut album Songs in A Minor) is definitely a bit on the whiter side of things, she looks like Melanie C. of Spice Girls fame with her hair pulled back! There’s been a number of incidents like this, most notably Beyoncé being made lighter in various ad campaigns, and now the lightening epidemic has shamefully spread to wax figures. If I were Alicia, I would demand a revised version, who else agrees with me?
