Los Angeles Times - Sammy Sosa's appearance during last week's Latin Grammy Awards has created controversy due to his new severely lightened skin pigmentation.
"He's not trying to be Michael Jackson," former Chicago Cubs employee Rebecca Polihronis, who talks frequently with Sosa, told the Chicago Tribune.
"He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin. Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of [the photo appearance] is just the lighting." Polihronis said Sosa told her the photos are deceiving.
"He was doing a dermatological skin process after years and years [of playing baseball] in the sun," Polihronis said. "It did come out looking weird" in the photos.
