Beyoncé's publicist freaks out over pics

07 February 2013, 12:48

Los Angeles - "Unflattering" photos of Beyoncé during her Super Bowl half time performance, posted by US website Buzzfeed, have been condemned by her publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure.

After posting an article on their page, which contains various images of Beyoncé in different positions while dancing, the superstar's publicist sent an e-mail to the website, asking them to remove certain images in the article.

In the e-mail, Noel-Schure writes: "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."

No response

The e-mail further goes on to detail the exact photos that they find the most offence with, labelling them as "the worst" of the collection.

Buzzfeed did contact the publicist with regards to the e-mail, requesting further explanation, but have not heard back from them. The photos have not yet been removed from the site.

Here are some of the images that were labelled as "unflattering" by Noel-Schure:

Meanwhile, E! Online reported that the animal rights group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), also slammed Beyoncé for "showing too much skin" during her performance.

'Humane vegan options'

"We would take a bet that if Beyoncé watched our video exposés... she'd probably not want to be seen again in anything made of snakes, lizards, rabbits, or other animals who died painfully," the organisation told E! News.

According to reports, her leather outfit incorporated iguana and python skin in addition to nylon and other man-made materials.

"Today's fashions are trending toward humane vegan options, and Beyoncé's Super Bowl outfit missed the mark on that score," PETA said.
