Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris Responds To Eye Color Change Backlash

Submitted by on December 5, 2014 – 8:58 amOne Comment

Rapper T.I.‘s wife, Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, made headlines in October because of her controversial decision to permanently change her eye color from dark brown to ice gray with Brightocular Surgery, a procedure that isn’t approved in the States. Some believed Tiny’s decision was motivated by a lack of self-esteem, with talk show host Wendy Williams equating it to bleaching your skin.

Recently, Tiny and I discussed the backlash surrounding her new eye color for my column, The Scoop With The Hip-Hop Socialite. Comparing the switch to wearing contacts, Tiny told me about the controversy, “I think it’s crazy because if you wear contacts, you’re changing them for the look. I just decided to permanently do it – it’s the same thing. If you wear contacts to change your color, then you are changing your look.”

After pictures of Tiny’s daughter, Zonnique Pullins, sporting a much lighter eye color than usual popped up on social media, many speculated that she also underwent the same procedure as her mother, but Tiny shut down that chatter during our talk. “No she didn’t [have the procedure],” she said. “Her eyes are not the same color as mine.”
