I know it's hard to believe (seriously), but Beyonce Knowles does not, in fact, look like a luminous sun-kissed angel 24/7. Particularly when she's in the middle of incredibly strenuous Super Bowl halftime performances. Weird! It's almost as though she's a human being with muscles and a face! Anyway, when BuzzFeed ran an appreciative post about Bey's halftime fierceness, they promptly heard from her publicist, who asked them to take down some "unflattering" shots and replace them with "better" ones. Kewl idea, publicist lady! Then no one will know the truth. About Bey having a face.
Thanks for taking my call. As discussed, 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 worst are #5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 19 and 22.
Thank you very much.
I don't know about you guys, but the photos don't look "unflattering" to me—they look like an epic badass doing the fuck out of her job. But you know. Bygones. [BuzzFeed]

Budweiser has announced the results of the contest to name the baby Clydesdale from its tear-jerky Super Bowl commercial:
Submitted names included Stevie, Star, Buddy and Spirit but the winning submission was Hope.
Of the selection process, Budweiser Brand Director Lori Shembro said, "Budweiser fans suggested a lot of great names, and it was a tough decision, but we landed on Hope as the perfect name for this friendly, slightly feisty and just perfect Budweiser Clydesdale mare. Many of our fans wanted a name to reflect their optimism and spirit."
