Rebecca Polihronis, a former Chicago Cubs employee who keeps in touch with Sosa, said in a Chicago Tribune interview that Sosa had undergone a skin rejuvenation treatment, something very common among women."What happened was that I had been using the cream for a long time and that, combined with the bright TV lights, made my face look whiter than it really is.
I don't think I look like Michael Jackson," Sosa said."I'm going to market it, I'm a businessman," Sosa joked about the mysterious cream, about which he revealed only that it was bought in Europe.

I'm not a racist, I live my life happily," said a smiling Sosa during the interview.
