Say it ain't so Sammy....

Wow Sammy is that you? While I was looking through the news yesterday I came across this article that wonders if Sammy Sosa is bleaching his skin. This is actually pretty scary looking check out the shots... Very eerie in a Michael Jackson sort of way. According to Rebecca Polihronis, one of Sosa's friends the picture was taken at the Latin Grammy awards:

"He is in the middle of doing a cleansing process to his skin," Polihronis told the newspaper. "The picture is deceiving. He said, 'If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture.'"

I think that is the way Michael Jackson started too... Hey Sammy Beisbol was berry berry good to you... Please there can't be that much of a "skin cleansing" process that will do that to your face... Maybe Sammy is just still trying to keep up with Mark McGuire. Yeesh.

I saw that online yesterday. Freaky. I am going to a new salon today for a facial and they "facial skin bleaching" on the menu. I'll let you know if Sammy is there.

Personally, I believe this is directly related to peeing on his hands to toughen them up.

Doc said...

LOL @ Dana... YUCK!

Hey Karen for real? facial skin bleaching? Some people fry in tanning beds and now we have others trying bleaching? YIKES!

Cleansing his skin? I believe I would rather keep toxins in and on my skin then to look like that! I mean what would happen if a Caucasian person did this? Translucent?

Hmm I don't doubt something is going on but you can take a piture of something and depending on the lighting and camera settings the item photographed can view quite different in color and texture from it's actual appearance.

Lu' said...

...but then again, not THAT different :)

Maybe the "cleansing process" is actually cleansing his blood of all the steroids he took while playing? The side effects of which is "That Vampire Look."

Or ... Maybe he got a role on next season's True Blood and they made up this skin cleansing thing to throw everyone off.

or Twilight

or The Vampire Diaries

or one of the other hundreds of vampire shows/movies they are working on.

Sammy is doing a reverse Al Jolson. It will be a new hot fad for 2010 in urban areas.

Southern Belle said...

No…no…no… not a vampire role it would have to be a role in the re make of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”

on the plus side he probably isn't a paedo....;-)

...also he's alive...which I guess is a plus from his point of view at least...
