Beyoncé team request removal of "unflattering" Super Bowl photos

By
Beyoncé's publicist has been accused of trying to remove "unflattering" images of the star taken during her Super Bowl half-time set from the internet.

The 'Love on Top' singer said that she was "so proud" of her critically-acclaimed performance at the New Orleans Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday (February 3), which saw her reunite with Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

However, the star's team have apparently been upset by the use of a number of mid-performance shots in Buzzfeed's celebratory article 'The 33 Fiercest Moments From Beyoncé's Half-time Show'.

The website has posted an email allegedly from Beyoncé's publicist reading: "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 then lists seven pictures of Beyoncé that they wish to be removed, all of them featuring her in candid positions during her performance.

Claiming to be baffled by the request, Buzzfeed responded by asking: "In what world are these shots unflattering?"

Beyoncé's half-time performance helped make Super Bowl XLVII the third most-watched US television programme in history with 108.41 million viewers.

The half-time show was also tweeted about a total of 5.5 million times, the biggest activity of a Super Bowl that generated a record-breaking 24.1 million tweets overall.
