Clearly there must be a difference between blackface and body art. The problem is, it can be difficult to distinguish the two. Therefore, why would anyone but a clown want to associate themselves with this type of entertainment?
In Estelle's new video, “Freak,” she allows herself to be painted dark(er) than what she already is. Is she insinuating that the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice? Does the paint on Estelle's body represent edible chocolate? If none of the above apply, can anyone care to explain the message being delivered?
