Unretouched photos of Beyonce’s L’Oreal ads hit the web!


Over 200 unretouched photos from Beyonce’s 2013 L’Oreal cosmetic campaign were leaked on a fan site called The Beyonce World on Tuesday, showing what the singer looks like in her natural state.

The 33-year-old superstar, known for her hit track Flawless, appears to have uneven and pimply skin under heavily applied foundation in the pre-Photoshop images.

Beyonce has yet to comment on the unretouched photos, which were immediately taken down by the website soon after they were posted. (They were picked up by Complex and Gawker.)
The outtakes appear to be from Beyonce’s adverts for L’Oreal’s Feria and Infallible products, which advertise hair dyes, lipsticks and foundations.

Call me crazy, but I don’t see anything wrong with the pictures. I mean sure – she has some uneven skin….but she’s human, right? I don’t think the pictures are all that shocking. I think any of us could make our skin look better with the help of photoshopping. Who wouldn’t try!?

What do you think – are the pictures “shocking”?

Beyonce channels Marilyn Monroe for OUT Magazine


Beyonce covers the latest issue of OUT Magazine, and on the cover, the singer channels Marilyn Monroe. Probably on purpose, considering she talked about sex quite a bit in the interview.

How her latest album is about empowering women with their sexuality:

I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.

[It was] much freer than anything I’d done in the past. We really just tried to trust our instincts, embrace the moment, and keep it fun.” As an illustration she singled out the video for “Drunk in Love,” a fan favorite. “We were in Miami for Jay’s concert, and it was just the two of us, on the beach, amazing weather, and one outfit! It’s beautiful in its simplicity. If you want something to feel real and urgent, you can’t overthink it.


Beyonce has the No. 1 celebrity fragrance line!

Beyonce is on fire! According to People, the singer’s “Heat” collection of perfumes has just been named the best-selling celebrity fragrance brand worldwide. Since 2010 she’s had six fragrance, the latest is a limited edition of Heat for her Mrs. Carter Show world tour.

And if you collect all six scents, you can spray them depending on which Beyoncé banger you’re in the mood to dance to — spritzing Heat Rush for “Crazy In Love,” Midnight Heat for “Party,” or N.Y.C. Pulse for “Run the World.” Add the original scents (Heat and Pulse) for a complete collection.

I actually like Beyonce’s fragrances, I can see how they’re #1 in the celebrity category.

Have you smelled them? Do you like them?


PHOTOS: Beyonce cuts all her hair off!

Beyonce has taken her weave out!

From what I’ve always heard, we’ve never seen Beyonce’s real hair. She pretty much exclusively wears wigs and weaves, and has never really shown off her natural hair. I guess she decided to change all that, and removed her extensions once and for all! She posted these pictures on her Tumblr page, showing off her newly-cropped hair! I think her hair has been so processed, so damaged, she had to cut it all off and start over fresh. And I think it’s cute!

What do you think?
