India Arie

 

From www.ibtimes.com

 

     India Arie has a new album in stores in June after three years, but more focus is being paid to her latest promo picture, which features the singer looking a few shades lighter than usual.

 

     India Arie is sparking rumors that she bleached her skin as the cover art for her new single, “Cocoa Butter” from her forthcoming album “SongVersation” features the artist looking less like herself.

 

     She is known primarily for singing songs that promote self-acceptance and black beauty, such as “I Am Not My Hair” which has the chorus, “I am not my hair/I am not this skin/I am not your expectations no no/ I am a soul that lives within.”

 

     India Arie is not the first African-American artist to be accused of skin-bleaching. Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Dawn Richards, and Lil’ Kim are other notable celebrities accused of lightening their skin in recent years. India Arie has yet to address the skin-bleaching rumors.
