Unretouched photos of Beyoncé have leaked. And guess what? She looks like anyone whose had to wear a shit ton of make-up under hot lights with the pimples to prove it. She looks like a very pretty member of the rest of us. The kicker here; the BeyHive was so offended for their Queen that Beyoncé World—the site that leaked the images—deleted them in fear of retaliation.
So real in fact that Beyoncé World posted this message:
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.
I can only imagine what the mountains of death threats in their inbox, but I see their point. Beyoncé is just a regular woman, a regular woman with a hefty bank account, an amazing career, an enviable voice and un-retouched photos floating around. Welcome, Beyoncé, human.
