There’s not much I can add to these pictures except… Holy hell! So I guess turning any celebrity black means widening their nose and lips and giving them a spray on tan? Is this part of your strategy to get legitimized in the eyes of Western media, Xinhua? Stay classy.
UPDATE: Looks like it is very possible these images did not originate with Xinhua. Still, a high questionable call for them to run them (and not cite the original source). They seem to now agree —the page has been deleted.
