It’s not like Beyonce to be caught up in controversey, but her latest cover spread for France’s L’Officiel magazine has the pop star in the hot seat. When photos from the Glastonbury headliner‘s issue surfaced many were quick to call the business lady’s makeup “black face”. The Parisian fashion mag refuted claims, saying their intention for the special 90th anniversary edition was to honor Africa’s influence in fashion: “As for the artistic make-up, the inspiration came from several African rituals during which paint is used on the face.” There are other rumors that the L’Oreal spokesmodel wanted to pay tribute to musician and human rights activist Fela Kuti. Which do you believe? Were you offended by B’s shoot?
