Celebrities Photoshopping their pictures – even their “candid” Instagram images – is nothing new and almost to be expected. However, no one really expected it from Beyoncé, who notoriously does NOT have a thigh gap but suddenly did in a vacation photo she posted on Thursday.
Bey has always been pretty body positive (at least in terms of how she discusses her body image publicly), so it seems bizarre that she would be concerned with noticeably slimming down her thighs. Then again, this is the person whose team begged bloggers to take down unflattering photos of her on tour and banned photographers from any future dates so she had full control over what was released.
Anyhow, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been enjoying a nice little vacation together and here’s the photo that’s caused all the fuss:
Not sure what to make of it, really. I think maybe it’s just the angle the picture was taken? I can’t tell if that curve in on her leg is sloppy Photoshopping or the definition of muscle? WHO KNOWS? Bey is beautiful whatever way you slice it, but I suppose as a society we want to do anything we can to find some imperfection in those who seem perfect…
What do you think – is this Photoshopped or just a weird pic?
