The same day Meagan Good is clearing up her suspect wardrobe choices, another Christian icon is addressing the controversy that’s followed one of her recent clothing articles. Last week we told you how one half of the gospel duo Mary Mary was catching a lot of flack for the promo photos for her new solo project. While plenty of us saw the picture of Erica Campbell and thought the singer looked absolutely stunning in the all white fitted ensemble, others thought the dress, which hugs her in all the right places, wasn’t too becoming of a woman of God.
Essence.com recently had the opportunity to chat with Erica about the whole ordeal and when they asked her what she thought about the wardrobe backlash, she told them:
“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, but it obviously offended some people, which was never my intention.”
Erica also made a point to note both her husband and her sister support her photo choice, and further noted that it’s okay for christian women to be physically appealing, adding that it’s far better for young women to learn that lesson by observing a woman of God as opposed to the ladies who we normally get this message from.
“This is about confidence and realizing that God made you and that you are beautiful just the way you are. I think that young girls shouldn’t only get s*xy images from people who are not proclaiming Jesus. But I am. And I’m cute too.”
She told y’all. What do you think of Erica’s response to her dress controversy?
