Rumor: Beyoncé's publicist wants 'unflattering' Super Bowl photos gone

An email by her publicist politely asks that a website take down certain 'unflattering' photos of the star

UNCONFIRMED: Beyoncé’s publicist has asked a website to take down certain photos from her Super Bowl performance

By most accounts Beyoncé delivered an epic performance during the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show. Photographers by the boatload were there to document the singer’s show and they came back with hundreds of images. Some of those images, however, are apparently not worthy of being seen on the Internet. As BuzzFeed reports, Beyoncé’s publicist has asked them to remove several photos of the star that were found to be “unflattering.”

The ‘fiercest’ moments

The original BuzzFeed piece that drew the Queen B’s wrath was titled “The 33 Fiercest Moments From Beyoncé's Halftime Show” and, as advertised, shows several shots of the singer in mid-growl, grunt, scream or grimace. Of course, dancing to Beyoncé’s brand of hip-hop infused pop is far different from a waltz and is bound to elicit some pinched and sweaty faces. But according to the star’s publicist “Yvette,” those moments need to not be released to the wilds of the Internet.

"As discussed there are some unflattering photos on your current feed that we are respectfully asking you to change. I am certain you will be able to find some better photos,” the email from Yvette reads.
