Ameriie Goes Blonde: ‘I Just Went for It!’

Ameriie

Not only did Ameriie throw an extra “i” in her name to switch things up a bit, but the “1 Thing” singer took her image overhaul one step further. She recently debuted her new look at a Grey Goose event in Dallas, Texas, dying her luscious dark locks platinum blonde.

“I’ve always wanted to go platinum blonde, and I figured I’d finally just do it,” Ameriie exclusively tells Rap-Up.com of her new ’do. “One of the things that inspired me are photos I’ve seen of children in the Solomon Islands. They are very brown-skinned, and a lot of them grow white-blonde hair naturally. The contrast in dark skin tone and extremely light hair is really beautiful to me. So I just went for it!”

The Grammy nominee is currently in the studio recording Cymatika Vol. 1, the follow-up to last year’s In Love & War, which will showcase a more “international, worldly” sound.

    Agreed the extra i was not necessary, it’s just confusing!
    But bottom line is she’s still gorgeous, and she’s an artist so yeah all the power to her to just go for it and change things up!!!

  27. Tell'em

    Its actually growing on me. I can’t wait for the music because she is wildin’ this era. Give me “Because I Love It” part 2 on steroids.

  28. From Tokyo

    She looks good but it looks like extreme bleach – if she goes for a more natural blond it’ll look much better. (This from someone who LITERALLY bleaches/dyes their hair EVERY few weeks). It’s a good look!

    as long as she gives us amazing music, I don’t really care what color her hair is! she’s always HOT!

Yay lol but I love the new look, I hope this is the new look for Cymatika era because its so fresh and she could style it 100 different ways! Love Ameriie, I can’t wait to see her on tour in Brazil!

  36. Julie

    I remember liking her because she stayed with black hair while everyone was going blonde back in 2003/2004. She finally did it and it is okay…she needed change in appearance.

    I love Amerie, but what is she doing to herself. She is obviously bleaching her skin. Her face and neck is 10 shades lighter than her chest and arm. The hair color looks okay on her though.

    [Reply]

  38. Phoenix_Wright

    Guess Bri never heard of make up. Check Amerie’s other pics before you speak.

    [Reply]

  39. Bri

    It may very well be make-up but I’ve seen her other pictures and she just gets lighter and lighter.I guess she wants to be light skin now.

    Gettin that color hair screams “attention”.

    If she wants attention, tell her to drop a hit thats actually GOOD, re-do ‘One thing’ or somethin. Her hair was fine before that…that sht looks washed/bleached up

    [Reply]

  41. Mimi

    i think. shes doing it for attention….

    [Reply]

  42. BeeDaGurl

    Idk I actually think she looks cute… if Beyonce, Monica, Rhianna and Christina can go blond y cant she its only HAIR….

  44. Kev

    Y’all know I gotta add my two cents when it comes to my booski… she can do whatever she wants that woman is the baddest in the land! Straight up sexy she’s such an individual I love her swag

    One word. NO!!!!!!!!!

    [Reply]

  46. D.I

    I love it.
    The colour
    Ameriie if your reading to complete the look, you should dye your eyes brows the same colour & add some darker tones to the blonde!

    [Reply]

  47. MiGi

    she looks like beyonce i actually like it ;)

    [Reply]

  48. youamuseme

    I don’t like it :(
    She looks weird. I have to get used to it first

    [Reply]

  49. Godiva

    NOOO! Please don’t get caught in the hype…you are beautiful the way you are. NO blonde hair or name change!

    [Reply]

  50. Rasheedah

    She looks JUST LIKE Keyshia Cole with that hair. Love Amerie but that color doesn’t flatter her skin tone or eyes at all. Distracts from her natural beauty. :( Hope it’s just a phase.

    [Reply]

  51. Mike

    If she would stop making subpar music, she wouldn’t have to do dumb shyt that screams “I NEED ATTENTION”, like adding an extra ‘i’ to her name or going hooker blonde…

    Amerie needs to invest in some voice lessons, stick with modeling or sit the hell down somewhere!!

    She lost so many points after the nose job…self-hate is a bitch!!

  52. Julian

    I absolutely LOVE her new blonde hair. She looks way better with BLONDE hair than with gross brown hair. BLONDE HAIR IS THE BEST HAIR COLOR. BLONDES ARE THE BEST.

  53. TheBigPicture

    Amerie looks real good with blonde hair. It’s cool to see her looking different. She looks like Storm for X-men which is pretty badass. I think it’s going to fall in line well with her new pop sound.

    [Reply]

  54. TheBigPicture

    More Amerie stories please, especially when her new single drops. I want a preview of the album and/or single graphics if you can get them in advance. She always thinks graphics out really well so they fit with the album’s ideas.

  55. maya

    she looks cute but I prefer the black on her & her new single “out your body” whatever the fuck it’s called SUCKS! Sounds like some shit Ke$ha’s lame ass would do.

  56. Jasmen

    Ik vind allebei halmeeal niets. Kelly ging juist de goede kant op met lang, golvend haar met een pony en Amerie heeft van nature prachtige lokken en dan maakt ze er een bosje stro van. Nee, not my cup of tea’
