Beyonce Peeved at H+M for Photoshopping Her Bikini Ads, Demands They Use Originals
Beyonce is miffed at H&M bosses. What did the execs at the discount retailer do to ruffle the feathers of the queen and their spokesmodel for the summer 2013 collection, which is full of bikinis aka “beykinis” and swimsuits? They tried to Photoshop her, that’s what.
Gasp! No! You don’t digitally edit Bey and her famous curves, if you know what’s good for you.
When Bey saw the altered images, she demanded the originals be used. And guess what? Girl got her way, since Bey always gets her way.
The Sun reveals that an insider claims Bey went ballistic when she saw the edits the company planned for print ads.
“When Beyonce found out they had edited the way her body really looked, she hit the roof,” the source shared. “She’s a true diva and was furious that she had been given such a snubbing. Her people refused to give the pictures the green light so H&M were forced to use the originals.”
A rep for H&M confirmed that there were “discussions” about the photos, but that the final published images were not edited. The rep said, “As with all campaigns there are discussions on which images should be used. Both H&M and Beyonce are very happy with the final result.”
That’s corporate speak for “We tried to edit the images, but Beyonce said ‘Ah, hell naw!'”
Bey’s the boss. Damn it must feel good to be a diva and a gansta!
