Mary Mary singer Erica Campbell was excited about her first Grammy nomination as a solo artist. The singer celebrated the announcement by releasing a press release to the media, along with a controversial picture showing her in a form fitted dress.
When PATH aired the story of her Grammy nomination, we expected readers’ comments to be centered around her success as a solo artist, but several people remarked about the dress Campbell was wearing in her recent photo-shoot.
Campbell recently replied to the criticism saying to ESSENCE.com, “I’m taking it in stride and I’m keeping it moving,” “When we took the picture I felt beautiful, I felt confident, I felt sexy and I felt strong.” ”I thought I looked cute,” she says jokingly, “but it obviously offended some people, which was never my intention.” Campbell says soon after taking the photo, she sent it to her husband, producer Warryn Campbell, and her family, who supported her. “Our whole family loved it,” says her sister Tina Campbell. “You see grace, you see beauty, you see elegance and style. It’s wholesome.”
So what do you think PATH? Is the dress inappropriate?
