Why are they changing Beyonce's skin colour?

Was Beyonce's Skin Tone Lightened for a New Album Promotion?
There's talk that BEYONCÉ'S skin tone was intentionally lightened for some photos to promote her latest album, "4". She's also sporting platinum blonde hair.

This isn't the first time Beyoncé has been accused of lightening her skin tone. In 2008, a L'Oreal advertisement prompted a similar complaint . . . and in her video for "Countdown", she looks almost Caucasian.

For what it's worth, Beyoncé's father is African American, and her mother is mixed race.

What a same, I wouldn't even recognize that last pic as Beyonce. She is beautiful, there's no need to change her natural skin and hair! And that doesn't send a great message to others who see her as a role model either.
