Queen of the Day

Beyonce's Body Was ACTUALLY Too Bootylicious For H&M

Apparently, H&M wasn’t ready for Beyoncé’s jelly. Several weeks after Mrs. Carter first made budget beachwear look good in H&M’s summer swimwear campaign, reports have surfaced that B had to fight for the right to flaunt her curves. Allegedly, H&M deemed the singer’s body to be too bootylicious for their editorials and tried to retouch the photos of B in their bikinis — But the Queen wasn’t havin’ that, y’all.

“When Beyoncé found out they had edited the way her body really looked, she hit the roof,” a source says. “Her people refused to give the pictures the green light so H&M were forced to use the originals.”

All the women who independent, throw yo’ hands up at me! I don’t know if you guys saw the video of the fan who slapped B’s booty at a recent show, but she is puttin’ her fancy-heeled foot down all over the place these days. And good for her! Despite all the drama surrounding those less-than-flattering SuperBowl halftime photos, she deserves to call the shotsEspecially when her body is the billboard and her curves are her calling card. And I mean, I’d be happy to look like she did when she was pregnant, so there’s definitely no need for H&M to trim down her already bangin’ bod in a two-piece.

“Our purpose has always been to portray Beyoncé as the strong and beautiful woman she is,” a rep for H&M said in response to the retouching accusations. “It has been a good working process and a close cooperation. Both parties are happy with the images.”

(This totally sounds like a Charlie Brown head-hang to me.)

Question: Tell me how you feel about this? Try to control me boy, you get dissed.

    While I am not particularly a fan of Beyonce’s music, I am proud of her for taking charge and showing the world what’s up: Women Rule. OK, we don’t “rule”. I’t’s all equal, really. But she IS pointing THAT out. She’s showing the world that women deserve EQUALITY. She brings it and she does so on a grand scale. I believe she’s doing it for all of us Independent Women. Go B!

    I LOVE IT. I love that female celebrities are beginning to stand up to the over-editing. Beauty is found in who you are NOT in what an editing tool can make you look like. Way to go Beyonce! I’m owning my curves baby!

    They are STILL grossly photoshopped, so don’t fall for this reversed-psychological PR.

      Yeah, she may have requested “less” Photoshop but they’re certainly not untouched originals.

    I saw some in H&M and was pleasantly surprised that they didn’t photoshop her into a thin oblivion.
