Beyonce bans photographers from current tour

Beyonce has banned professional photographers from her current tour, The Mrs. Carter Show.

Media outlets have been advised that “there are no media credentials for this show. Local news outlets, including print and online will be given a link to download photos from every show.”

The move by the pop diva to control her image follows the fallout from Beyonce’s Super Bowl appearance in February, when media published what the singer considered some unflattering photos of her Halftime performance.

At the time, it was reported that Beyonce’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, contacted various outlets to request that some very specific images were taken offline.

The unusual request made headlines itself at the time and the move, ironically, shone more light on the images than there otherwise might have been, with many turning into viral memes.

Beyonce kicked off a European tour last week.
