Beyonce Leaked untouched pictures
Leaked untouched Beyonce pictures has sent Twitter into a frenzy! What’s all the fuss about? Come on, we’re all well aware that almost every celebrity picture is fiercely photoshopped and tweaked before they are ever published. This mishap has caused major controversy in the last twenty four hours on all social media sites . It’s quite frankly a reminder of what a shallow world we live in. The top three players I blame for this intense scrutiny on, not just female but male appearances are, the big brand corporations, the media and lastly US, yep that’s right I blame me and you!
Everybody is guilty of it, we all do it! We pass on judgment and criticism on the appearances of celebrities and public figures. I am not saying we should never do that! Well we shouldn’t but we still do, but what I am saying is maybe we shouldn’t blast it all over social media. There will be millions of women around the world who will be empowered and uplifted by these pictures, and you may ask, why? I’ll tell you why, it shows a beautiful woman flaws and all. We have become so accustomed to seeing these ‘perfect beings’ depicted and photographed in unattainable angelic states. We forget that these people are like you and me! They’re not perfect and they have things they wished they could change too! So get a hold of yourselves, there are far worse things happening in the world, people are paying to go see Paris Hilton as a bona Fide talented DJ and people are drinking coffee somewhere with no WIFI. Beyonce’s ‘not so perfect complexion’ should not be making world wide news!
Although I don’t believe this topic should have received the amount of attention it has, I do think that this leak will help break down the barriers of our perceived ideas of perfection, which is orchestrated and manipulated by the media. Do I think she looks worse in the non photoshopped pictures? my initial reaction was ‘Oh my God look at Beyonce’ but then I thought to myself, actually she doesn’t look bad, she looks like a normal human being. Then I thought if we had never been exposed to photoshoped images would we even think that these are ‘bad’ pictures?
I really don’t know how many times, I have seen pictures of myself ah thought EUGH…….. :o. We have all experienced this, unflattering lights and angels, that make us for a split second consider surgery! OK slight exaggeration but you know what I mean. It’s comforting to know that even the Queen B also relies on good lighting and Instagram filters.
Some of the Nasty Tweets
People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, as you can see this two guys are Perfect, so perfect they can call Beyonce ‘ugly’ and ‘horrible’
Some of the Sweet Tweets
Its nice to see that most people are supportive and not dehumanizing about these pictures.
