A photoshoot Beyonce and JAY-Z did for Tiffany is getting lots of scrutiny.

Some are angry that the shoot featured a previously unseen  Jean-Michel Basquiat painting, arguing the late street art legend would have never agreed to hawk diamonds.

Then there is the issue of the diamond around Beyonce's neck.  

 

The rare stone belongs to Tiffany and has a dodgy colonial history

Beyonce's mom Tina Knowles pushed back against that line of argument.

So when you guys get engaged you won’t have a diamond you gonna put on a sterling silver band And you better check out where it came from and the origin of where came from and why you add it check out the calls for the Leather that you weird because they made it came from another country to to ban and not buy diamonds right because your righteous!!”
