The former Destiny's Child member could have one of the biggest roles in the upcoming live adaptation.
With the weeks going by, the cast of Jon Favreau's upcoming 'The Lion King' live action adaptation seems to be coming together, but there are still big questions surrounding exactly who'll be filling in to voice Nala. Now rumours of Beyonce taking on the role could be coming a reality, with the singer also said to be in serious discussions to produce the soundtrack for the film.

Onlookers felt the skin colour on Beyonce's newly-unveiled waxwork was too white.

Unveiled at the Madame Tussauds branch in New York City this week, the likeness of Queen Bey is wearing a glittery playsuit and knee-high boots. However, it got many of her fans up in arms because they believed its skin was too light and had blonde hair, making the model appear too white.
“It's a good thing you're not talking about *Beyonce cause this white woman is definitely not her,” one irate Twitter user said, while others argued it actually looked more like Britney Spears, Shakira or Lindsay Lohan.
