Angry photographers have a bone to pick with Queen Bey, and we aren't referring to slighted paparazzi!!
Beyoncé recently denied all photographers press passes for the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour because she doesn't want them taking pics of her at the concerts.
The singer's public relations team instead insists that press use pre-authorized pics of the her in their publications!
Of course, journalists are protective of their First Amendment rights so now they're pissed off!
The National Press Photographer's Association, backed by heavyweight papers like the L.A. Times the New York Daily News, wrote an angry letter to the masterful musician's PR team saying as much!
They believe Bey is only hurting her image by fussing over unflattering pictures!!
Furthermore, they think the singer shouldn't meddle with the very notion of a free and independent press!
We understand Beyonce wants every photo of her to be perfectly Bootylicious, but maybe she's taking this too far!
Jay-Z married a remarkably radiant woman! We think she looks genuinely gorgeous all the time!
Here's another theory: Maybe Beyonce doesn't want cameramen snapping shots of her growing baby bump!?
ZOMG, we wish!!
See the NPPA's letter (below)!
