Beyoncé was outstanding during the 2013 SuperBowlhalftime show at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday, February 3.
The 31-year-old singer proved that she is an excellent performer. During her set, she danced her heart out but some of her fierce, hard and heavy dance moves weren’t as convincing in photos as her performance was in real.
Several ‘unflattering’ photos of Beyonce, taken during her Super Bowl Halftime performance appeared in Buzzfeed’s article entitled "The 33 Fiercest Moments From Beyoncé's Halftime Show."
Later, the staffers at Buzzfeed were shocked to receive an email from Beyonce’s publicist, Yvette, who asked them to remove some of the pictures of the star, and didn't stop to point the "worst" ones out!
The photos still remain on the website, obviously because they are not illegal or anything so no one can have them removed.
The point is, once something is published on the internet, it spreads like fire. You can’t stop it from circulating or remove it. Plus not only photographers, anyone who understands how things go viral on the internet would sit down to watch a performance as big as the ‘Super Bowl Halftime Show’ with eyes wide open to spot things that can create buzz on social media.
One such example is of Redditor Sphinctor who published a post on Reddit entitled: Unfortunate Pause. This brought the room to our knees! My sides hurt...
His post attracted a lot of other Redditors to post some other photos and gif files of Beyonce that she would dislike. So, even if you stop someone to post something somewhere, you cannot stop everyone else from doing it! Fortunately or unfortunately, once something pops on the internet… you can’t stop it.
Therefore, it is better for celebs and stars to understand that a few ‘unflattering’ photos might be funny to some but they hardly do any damage to their reputation and fan following. Those who love Beyonce … they still love Beyonce, no matter how many unflattering photos surface on the internet!
