The wife of Blurred Lines rapper has spoken out after causing backlash on social media for switching her eye colour

Blurred Lines rapper TI’s wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, has defended her decision to change her eye colour from brown to light grey.

The reality star, who was once a member of the 90s R&B group Xscape, travelled to Africa to get cosmetic surgery on her eyes, getting implants to change her eye colour from brown to ice grey, and she’s over the moon while many critics are up in arms.

“I looked in the mirror and I was like, they’re amazing,” she said on Good Morning America.

The procedure, which is illegal in the US, saw New York ophthalmologist James Tsai, a clinical spokesman for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, tell The Associated Press that similar but not identical procedures are carried out for patients who are suffering with specific medical issues.

But for people just wanting to go under the knife, it’s said that it could risk glaucoma, cataracts, bleeding in the eyes and corneal problems.

 “We believe they are a dangerous practice and as a physician I would never recommend them,” he said.

Procedures like one that Tiny had have become popular across the Middle East, Panama and Africa in recent years.

Harris, who co-wrote TLC’s hit No Scrubs, has faced a torrent of abuse and criticism on social media since coming back with her new eye colour.

“I just wanted to do something different,” she said. “I have the right to do that. It’s my body.”

Tiny also revealed that her rapper husband wasn’t a fan of her decision to play with her eyes, but now he’s a fan.

“He loves them. He’s OK with them as long as they’re healthy and I’m not having any problems,” she said.
