Beyonce Bans Photographers From Her Concert Tour
Back in February, Beyonce and her publicist team started trying to remove all the unflattering pictures that turned up after her Super Bowl performance. Now, the 'Grown Woman' singer has gone one step further by banning all photographers from her new tour.
Noam Galai at FStoppers reports that the same Team B publicist who demanded her Super Bowl photos be yanked has now decided that instead of allowing professional photographers into the concert venues, “3-5 pre-approved images” shot by an in-house photographer will be released after each show.
But since no one wants the same photos everyone else has and fans still have their pesky camera phones, wire services are just buying pics from concert attendees. So now, a bunch of amateur shots in low-res are getting a worldwide audience, making things even worse.
One music photographer snapped the guidelines, which provide a link to download the greenlit pics:
If Beyonce can learn anything from this, it’s that the internet doesn’t like being told what to do. You have to ask nicely.
