Did India Arie Lighten Her Skin?

We all know Black is beautiful, but we’re not sure if India Arie is sold on the belief. Recently the 37-year-old Afro-centric singer was accused of lighting her skin on the cover image of her new single “Cocoa Butter”.

However, sources close to India told TMZ, “the lightened skin is merely the product of the camera flash and angle. India never asked to be lightened.”

Also in response to the criticism, India took to twitter and tweeted “Personally speaking! I’m happy to say I have NOT BLEACHED my skin LOL! ROTF at the thought.”

What do you think Vixens? Did the “Brown Skin” singer lighten her skin?
