Seattle Seahawks player Marshawn Lynch has many people talking (as usual) about a recent interview he did with XXL magazine, where he was asked to name his top 10 celebrity crushes.
From the list of beautiful female celebs he listed, one thing was quite clear……Marshawn prefers his women light, or “fair-skinned”. He seems to have ruffled the feathers of some darker skin women, but Marshawn is entitled to his preference.
Here’s what he said:
Okay, give me your hottest 10 women right now.
“Rihanna. Nicki Minaj is solid, Beyoncé’s solid. Let’s see, Dej Loaf ’s solid.”
Go ahead, that’s four.
“Some throwback…Mya solid, I just recently seen her, she was gone. I’m telling you, she looked power thick. Who else? You heard of Netta B.? . . . The chick that sings “2 On,” Tinashe.”
Yeah, Tinashe is cute.
Oh, so she gets a pass too?”
You can pick whoever you want! You’re at seven now, who else?
“Sanaa Lathan go, too. . . . Cassie go and J.Lo old-ass go stupid, too. She’s hella sexy.”
Okay, got them. Any bonuses?
“Anything with curly hair, fair skin, pretty-ass teeth and a sexy-ass personality, that’s probably number one. She ain’t got to have no name behind her but she’s somewhere out there.”
So you’re looking for a lady with good teeth and you said light-skinned or did I hear that wrong?
“Yeah, you made it up, I said fair-skinned. That’s like on a summer day she’s gonna be a little bit more brown, and then when it’s cold outside, she probably be a little bit on her way to being light-skinned but not light-skinned. Anything with curly hair, fair skin, pretty-ass teeth and a sexy-ass personality, that’s probably number one. She ain’t got to have no name behind her but she’s somewhere out there.”
Marshawn is currently rumored to be dating Eazy E’s daughter Erica. Considering what he said in his XXL interview, she perfectly fits the description of what he likes.
We believe everyone is entitled to what they prefer in a spouse. If Marshawn prefers more fair-skinned women, then so be it. That doesn’t take away from his Blackness at all.
