Was Beyonce a victim of some major photoshopping? The Beyhive totally called out ‘W’ magazine for editing the singer’s hips and legs to take away from her flawless curves. Take a look at the shocking pic right here and see if you think it’s photoshopped!
That’s not Beyonce on the cover of W! Okay, maybe it is, but when the 34-year-old singer rocked the cover of the magazine in 2011, she wasn’t nearly as curvy as she normally appears. Nearly five years later, the pic is causing controversy with Beyonce’s fans amidst her Lemonade drama — and the mag is getting some serious shade for photoshopping Queen B!
To commemorate the release of Beyonce’s new album, Lemonade, W shared a picture from her July 2011 spread in the mag. While it’s hard to deny that Beyonce looks incredible in the shot, at the same time, her waist and legs appear to be much thinner than the Bey bod fans are used to. She even has a thigh gap! Where did that come from? Fans are wondering the same thing…
The picture quickly sparked a slew of angry comments, accusing the magazine of using photoshop to make ever-so-curvy Beyonce look way too skinny. “Terrible job… she loves and embraces her curves and thighs… why would you photoshop them?” one fan wrote. “jesus these ain’t even her legs!! photoshopping is getting absurd! get real,” another fan exclaimed. Some fans scolded the mag for being disrespectful to their “perfect” Bey! See the pic below!
Even if the picture didn’t happen to be as edited as fans are making it seem, it’s certainly not the right time to mess with the Beyhive. Beyonce’s fans came out in full force after the release of Lemonade — which you can listen to right here — as many of the songs’ lyrics implied that Jay Z cheated on her. And when Beyonce sang about “Becky with the good hair,” fans immediately thought she was talking about Jay Z’s alleged mistress Rachel Roy — and completely attacked her!
Considering the affair drama that Lemonade sparked, maybe W wanted to take the attention away from Beyonce and Jay Z’s marriage troubles with their shocking pic? Whatever their intention was, the Beyhive certainly wasn’t having it!
