Beyonce caused a shock at her latest makeover which she dyes her hair platinum blonde for the Grammys. Theres a picture of her standing next to her new BFF Gwyneth Paltrow and at first glance it looks like 2 blonde white women standing next to each other. Its shocking!

Lots of attention is now focusing on whether Bey is now lightening her skin and dying her hair to try and be blonde, in order to appeal to a wider audience.

I think she has bleached her skin as her pictures look different to older photos of her. Its a sad shame if it is true that she's doing this to herself. Reminds of lil kim.

Well, the last photo is interestin', if it wasn't p-shopped, that is. ;-) Judging by the last photo she could be either havin' a skin disease (can happen, rarely) or bleachin' indeed. I say she should leave that no good Jay-Z & find herself a real Afro-Brazilian husband. ;-D Many Brazilians love her, & she loves (us) Brazil(ians)-- BTW, she's partly creole just like majority of (us) Brazilians. ;-P However, I dun think bleachin' should be the way to go, either in Africa or elsewhere around the world. A true art has no color. ;-) Axé!

I think she is just experimenting with hair color. Many black women and women of color like to experiment with lighter colored hair. The colors they choose don't always suit their skin tone but I don't think it's about trying to be a white woman as much as it is about experimenting. Sometimes a different color would seem to suit their coloring more than their natural color. But no, I don't think so. I don't really know about the skin lightening thing because sometimes it's the exposure (the picture taken) but if you told me that she went platinum and there was a real noticeable difference in her skin color and she started to wear contacts or if she begins to look stranger and stranger like Lil Kim or Michael RIP, then, you may have something.

Its not photoshopped. I wish it was, but unfortunately not.

To be honest I think she is bleaching her skin. A lot of people have said that she might be lighter because its winter and we do go lighter when our skin is not exposed to the sun. If thats so, how come we've never seen her this dark before? Its weird

On second thought, her skin does seem about two or so shades lighter but still, IDK.

I agree with what the woman says in her youtube video. I have no problem with skin shades and I think black skin comes in a variety of different colours.

My problem is with those who are full of self-hate and try to conform to the white standard of beauty. There was nothing wrong with her skin before, she was beautiful. Now she looks generic.

I understand and I am all for experimenting. I've never said anything about her before and we all know that Beyonce has been rocking the blonde weave for some time now. But since these pictures came out, they made me stop in my tracks.

At first I was doubting it, but then also realised that as well as her skin being lighter and her hair blonde- she's also wearing colour contacts. The whole put together package just screams white blonde girl, not a black girl IMO

She's wearing contacts? I always thought her eyes were a light brown. Are those contacts or does she have a different color completely?

The same rumors follow Rihanna for some time now. ;-P
- here Bey again, a bit lighter. Bleachin' can damage human skin on the long run & it makes no sense whatsoever.

- this is how our sexy & cute dark Afro-Brazilian women look like.

Pretty soon, through continued skin bleaching, contacts, blond Caucasian textured weaves, etc, Beyonce Knowles will vitually look like a full fledge white girl or damn close. Like it or not, the transformation has begun.

Yes, in the newest pictures, she looks like she's wearing light green contacts. Her eyes have always been light brown so this is also changed
