Beyoncé’s publicist wants “unflattering” photos removed
From the makeup-free vacation pictures she posts on Tumblr to candid paparazzo shots taken in the streets, Rarely is Queen Bey pictured with a hair out of place.
One might almost assume she’s magically photogenic.
Yvette Noel-Schure respectfully asked that Buzzfeed remove seven of the 33 images used by Yapalater in her post, “The 33 Fiercest Moments From Beyoncé’s Halftime Show.”
Here, as Buzzfeed Celeb writes, are “the photos from the live halftime performance broadcast to 108.4 million people” Noel-Schure called unflattering.

Lindy West of Jezebel agreed.
“Weird! It’s almost as though she’s a human being with muscles and a face!” she wrote about the photos in question. “Kewl idea, publicist lady! Then no one will know the truth. About Bey having a face.
