After Bey posted a few bikini pics on her Tumblr on April 10 showcasing an unusual-looking thigh gap, fans took to Twitter to accuse the gorgeous singer of Photoshopping herself and not being proud of her sexy curves. So what do you think? Did Beyonce resort to a little photo-editing?
Man, you’d think if Beyonce were going to do the deed, she’d execute it better. But after the singer posted two pictures on her Tumblr on April 10 that featured some questionable delineations in her thighs — suggesting that the photos were altered — fans rushed to Twitter to criticize the Queen for apparently resorting to Photoshop to make herself look thinner and give herself a “thigh gap.”
Beyonce: Did She Photoshop Pic To Create A Thigh Gap?
The most damning picture of the pair showed Bey mid-golf-swing in a retro bikini. She looks great, except for the fact that her right thigh is oddly shaped — the delineation of her leg is inconsistent and definitively unnatural-looking — and the usually curvy singer has a thigh gap, which means there’s space in between her upper thighs even when her knees are close together.
The second picture showed Beyonce from the side, and while her legs looked notably healthier and thicker than the first snap, there’s still a wavering delineation in her right leg — a curve where curves don’t usually go.
“Trust me, I’m Team B, but she definitely liquified her thigh,” a photo expert told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, explaining the Photoshop filter that allows editors to either push or pull a person’s features in a photograph. In this case, it appears Beyonce pushed the outline of her thigh inward, but forgot to do so with the necessary subtlety.
“It’s definitely a botched job,” another expert told us, adding that Bey may have instead used the stamp tool, which lets users copy the background of a picture — in this case the green of the golf course — and paste it over the foreground, essentially erasing it (“it” being a slice of Beyonce’s upper thigh here) from existence.
Beyonce: Fans Slam Her For Allegedly Photoshopping
The curious pictures quickly caught the eyes of fans, who began accusing Beyonce of using Photoshop (quite unconvincingly) to appear slimmer. Their disappointment in Queen Bey was palpable:
LOL Beyonce, the modern day feminist~ and #1 self love advocate, photoshopping herself a thigh gap.

With her her money, Beyoncé should be able to pay someone who is better at Photoshop.

Bey also had her fair share of supporters though, who insisted that she’d never do such a sacrilegious thing like Photoshop herself. But what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did Bey edit her own pics? And if so, are you disappointed in her for doing it?
