Sammy Sosa’s handlers, advisers and himself can claim the lighting was bad or that he was overexposed at the red carpet for last week’s Latin Grammys.
Um, now we have fan photos from inside Mandalay Bay.
Cue the Michael Jackson music.
Of course people who have a financial reason to stick up for Sosa have come to his defense.
(Rebecca) Polihronis said part of the reason for Sosaâ€™s paleface was â€œthe lightingâ€ when his photo was snapped at last weekâ€™s Latin Grammy Awards .
â€œThe picture is deceiving,â€ she said. â€œHe said, â€˜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.â€™ â€
Polihronis added that Sosa â€œis not trying to be Michael Jackson.â€
Busted Coverage was tipped off to these photos overnight and am now convinced that Sosa’s skin is forever ruined. He’ll soon turn to sleeping with little boys and purchase an amusement park in the Dominican Republic.
Your move, Sosa.
