Although he’s still being vague about his reasons, baseball legend Sammy Sosa confessed to Univision (via the NY Post) that he has been bleaching his skin. "It's a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed. . . . I use [it] to soften [my skin], but [it] has bleached me some," he admitted.
Sosa shocked fans when he showed up at the Latin Grammys last week looking like a completely different person, complete white skin and green eyes. He insists, however, that the lights from the camera made him look a lot lighter than he actually is. "I'm not a racist. I live my life happily . . . I don't think I look like Michael Jackson,” he said.
Sosa, who turns 41 tomorrow, declined to indentify the name of the bleaching cream he’s been using.
