Believe me when I tell you that I wanted to look at the photos from Beyoncé‘s 2014 calendar and think, “Oh shit, this is (Sasha) FIERCE!” but I just cannot. I’m not sure who devised the concept for these photos (most likely the Queen herself), but it’s all wrong. Every single shot is just… terrible. This is her first ever official calendar and was made by photographers Herring & Herring and the arts agency Schierke, but if it was gonna be this bad, she shoulda never had one to begin with.
The pseudo-sexy poses, the weird masculine “I can wear a hat and smoke a cigar while still showing a little bit of my tits” nonsense… none of it works and quite frankly, it comes off looking a little cheap. If I didn’t know better, I’d think the photo with the white draped dress was Mary J Blige! A big ole NOPE goes out to this whole thing.
Am I wrong here? Are these shots actually hot? Someone explain it to me!
