Beyonce is a fierce performer but it seems she'd rather you didn't have any evidence of this.
An email from the her publicist to a news website has exposed the extraordinary lengths some stars go to to protect their image.
Beyonce's publicist emailed Buzz Feed staff after the website published 33 photos and GIFs of Beyonce performing at the Super Bowl half time show.
As the below email shows, not all the photos were to Beyonce's liking:
Thanks for taking my call. As discussed, there are some unflattering photos on your current feed that we are respectfully asking you to change. I am certain that you will be able to find some better photos.
The worst are #5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 19 and 22.
Thank you very much.
Unfortunately, Yvette doesn't understand the mentality of the internet. Buzz Feed straight away published a new story headlined "The "Unflattering" Photos Beyoncé's Publicist Doesn't Want You To See", and the pics went viral from there.
Beyonce isn't the only singer to get uppity when "unflattering" photos of them emerge on the web. Kanye West just recently got Getty Images to remove photos of him in a skirt.
Here are two examples of the images Beyonce's publicist didn't want you to see (head to BuzzFeed to see the rest):
