Don’t even bother ringing the alarm, the Beyhive’s already handled it.
The images were apparently taken from Beyoncé’s 2013 L’Oréal commercial shoots and ad campaigns — she is a spokesperson for the brand. The images, which Complex was able to grab, show the singer with wrinkled and blemished skin.
Here is one of Beyoncé’s L’Oréal ads, for comparison:
Before we move on, we’d like to clarify that Beyoncé still looks great. This is how she woke up and she remains ***flawless. While, yes, this may make you feel she is more relatable, a human even, never forget that she is still the Queen, and she is fresher than you.
Now back to the Beyhive, who collectively lost their damn mind when the images leaked, to the point where the “The Beyoncé World” was forced to remove the images within an hour of posting due to backlash.
The site owners posted a comment explaining their actions:
Due to the disdain of the BeyHive, we have removed the photos. We don’t want to cause any drama, nor do we wish to start fan wars. Some of the things we have seen posted were just horrible, and we don’t want any parts of it. We were just posting the photos to share the fact that our queen is naturally beautiful, at the same time she is just a regular woman.
Others, still, are claiming the unretouched pictures were actually doctored. YEAH RIGHT!!
