Beyonce Knowles Darkens Skin For French Fashion Mag

In Breaking News, Celebrity News, EOTM News on February 24, 2011 at 10:19 pm





So its the 90th anniversary of French fashion magazine  L’Officiel Paris and Beyonce Knowles appears in a picture which pays tribute to an “African Queen” theme. Supposedly Beyonce poses as  Fela Kuti, a Nigerian musician and human rights activist who supposedly inspired the music on her upcoming album.

No word on if its Beyonce or her alter ego Sasha Fierce posing.

On a more serious tip, many are criticizing Knowles’ use of “blackface,” but it remains unclear to most whether this is a good or bad thing. We’re still not sure if this is actually considered blackface in the traditional sense of the word.
