Afrocentric singer India.Arie is catching grief over her sudden “light-skin” complexion instead of “brown skin” on the cover of her new single, “Cocoa Butter.”

India Arie’s people are making excuses saying that her complexion is due to the camera flash and angle. Here we go again, dark skin, light skin dogfight.

We won’t join the haters, we are still big fans of India Arie. Though we have to wonder, what’s up with the “light-skin?”

Here’s the shot from TMZ:
