Chimamanda Adichie uncomfortable with her new beauty campaign

In a conversation with The New York Times, Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie talked beauty, feminism and femininity. When asked if she consider fashion and makeup entry point to a wider audience, the brutally honest award-winning writer, who was recently made the New Face of Boots No7 makeup said:

"I decided to do this No7 thing because I thought it might be fun, and then they will give me free makeup. And I’m always up for free things. It wasn’t a carefully calculated thing. It was actually just my being blinded by the selfish overwhelming love of makeup. But I have to be honest, there were times when I thought, “Well, what have I done?” I wasn’t quite aware of how many pictures of me would be out there. It makes me feel a little vulnerable. 
I told my friends to stop sending me pictures of when they see me at the bus stop in London or something. It’d be very dishonest to say it’s all wonderful. It’s not so much a question of regret. But it does come with feelings of vulnerability that can be uncomfortable" Read the full interview here.

Tired of her. She seems so pretentious and snobby to me. There's also something so not authentic about her. I bet her feminism talk is a sham as well. U wanna tell me she's that strict and her man still stays. Come on something gotta give. Don't be surprised she's extra submissive but is there misleading girls. Aka toke makinwa. Hope her story won't turn out same. This whole feminism thing I'm not a fan as a woman. It seems so harsh standoffish and unforgiving. I'm more in tune with being a bitch (broad in total control of herself) seems it works better.

And who is chummy trying to fool? Bitch u did a shoot/campaign n didn't expect t. See ur pics all over. Girl bye. Preach it to the choir. With your fake humble ass. I can see igbo wickedness and vanity all over you . no offense

Something about this woman seems so forced, and preachy. She needs to get off her high horse. Forming feminist here but I'm sure ur man wears the pants at home. Don't like fake people who mislead others. Dont you want the rest to have happy homes too??? Glad I have a mind of my own

Madam complainer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Esege.

Some of us don't have a job living in Great Britain.

You have books written, articles written, interviews granted, known all over the world.

You don't like your current advert?
