Beyoncé Bans Photographers From Her Tour


Beyoncé Bans Photographers From Her Tour

No photogs allowed on Beyoncé's tour, the Mrs. Carter Show.

Published April 25, 2013

Beyoncé has banned photographers from her tour. Reportedly, the first lady of pop wants to make sure that no unflattering pictures come out from her new tour.

According to the the Guardian, "no photo credentials" have been given out on the singer's Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. Instead, Bey hired photographer Frank Micelotta to snap shots of the shows, which are posted online for the media to use.

The new rule is apparently a reaction to a bunch of stills that circulated from the 31-year-old's Super Bowl halftime performance. Her publicist asked that the press not post certain images, but websites like BuzzFeed went the opposite route, and turned them into a photo gallery. 

Still, that hasn't stopped fans from collecting footage form the audience. A clip from Beyoncé surprising fans at her tour's Paris stop with a first-time performance of "Grown Woman" (the song from her new Pepsi commercial) broke loose on the 'nets.

Meanwhile, one clip King Bey has definitely approved is her sultry new H&M commercial. Shot in the Bahamas, the one-minute 30-second spot premiered online last night and features Mrs. Carter rocking various swimsuits with her newest song, "Standing on the Sun," playing in the background.
