Beyonce Bans Press Photographers After Superbowl Pictures

Beyonce Bans Press Photographers After Superbowl Pictures

Pop queen Beyonce has banned press photographers from her "Mrs Carter" tour, in response to unflattering pictures from her Super Bowl performance.

News outlets will now have to go through a website and obtain sanctioned pictures from a sole authorised photographer.

The official rider, which quickly found its way to Facebook, states: "Local news outlets, including print and online will be given a link to download photos from every show."

"They will need to register to access the photos."

(Before the grammar nazis come and crucify me, the error in punctuation is from the Facebook statement, not me.)

Most observers think that Beyonce is reacting to the publication of unflattering photographs from her Superbowl performance.

Seriously, the example above is one of the more flattering pictures.

Noam Galai, writing for the blog Fstoppers, explained some flaws in Beyonce's logic.

She wrote: "[The media] will do anything possible to get images that other publications don't have."

"If they can't send a photographer to give them original photos, the next best thing they can do is buy photos from fans in the front rows in the arena."

"Not only is the mainstream media showing unflattering photos of her, they are showing bad-quality unflattering photos of her."

Bizarre, annoying, an idea devoted to making Beyonce look good...and that's just this here video for 'Single Ladies'.

The new photography rules are pretty similar, though.
