Another interesting article on the debate of the portrayal of African American women in mainstream media: http://thefeministwire.com/2013/05/the-rise-of-beyonce-the-fall-of-lauryn-hill-a-tale-of-two-icons/
I read an article today concerning Beyonce’s hair. There seems to be a major debate in the atmosphere in regards to her choice of hair color, mainly blonde. The H&M commercial starring her that I posted a couple days ago is center in the debate. It seems two versions were debuted, one with her as a blonde, the other with her as a brunette. It seems viewers prefer her with blonde hair, and some actually did not recognize her at all without her signature blonde locks. What’s your opinion on this? Do you think she is conforming to society’s standards for beauty? Or do you think this diva has the right to rock whatever color hair she chooses? After all, she’s not the first African-American star to rock blonde hair:
