Beyoncé has gone from pop music to pop art.

The famed singer gave fans a sneak preview of her latest promotional ad for Pepsi on her Facebook, which is much different than the sexy grocery shopper photo we'd seen before.

"Pop Art inspires me to Live for NOW," she wrote.

Beyoncé teams up with Pepsi

The new seemingly Andy Warhol-inspired ad shows a combination of Bey striking three different facial poses, followed by a Pepsi can (of course).

However, the bright-colored and posterized promo, which follows the design of the famous artist's vintage prints, has created a problem with some fans who feel that Beyoncé's skin tone is too light.

One commenter wrote, "ummmmm…why does she look Caucasian..?," while another said, "And to look like a white chick. thumbs down for you Missi."

Pepsi has no comment.
