Beyonce takes heat for apparent lighter shade in promo image

Beyonce Promo Image

(CBS) Does Beyonce appear a shade or two lighter in her album promotional image? The new mom is taking heat from critics who are wondering if the image has been digitally altered to give the pop star a lighter complexion.

The photo, released to promote the 2011 album "4," finds Beyonce dressed in a bodysuit and lying on a leopard skin couch with blonde hair and bleached eyebrows.

Some news outlets and blogs are questioning whether the image was digitally altered. But others say, it could just a result of studio lighting.

Beyonce experienced a similar situation back in 2008 with a L'Oreal ad.
