Beauty and Beyonce
After Beyonce’s big Superbowl performance, it had caused some furore that she had asked the media to remove some photos that she and her publicist considered to be unflattering (In all fairness, the news reports I have read said her publicist wanted it removed and never once mentioned her name…).
Maybe two weeks later, I come across another article stating that Beyonce has now banned photographers from her concerts excluding one which she hires. Photos that are released to the press will be those taken by this person and approved by her? and her publicist.

No those pictures are not the cutest, but Beyonce, you’re a performer; an enetertainer. We are well aware that your act consists not only of singing, but doing choreographed (and sometimes un-choreographed) dance moves that involve, neck-jerking, head-spinning, booty poppin’ and twirling and twerkin’. And we most definitely do not expect you to do all that while remaining cute as a puppy in spring!
Yes, despite the fact that you’re hailed a queen and considered a celebrity – no one expects you to look like a doll 100% of the time, because we know that you’re actually human!
So please, keep it real. Don’t become America’s flawed perception of a diva – be a real one!In case you missed it, here’s the performance. I’d be damned proud of those photos – girl can worrrk!
