Beyoncé bans press photographers from world tour

Global superstar Beyoncé has reportedly banned press photographers from her Mrs Carter Show world tour in a bid to stop unflattering pictures of the singer emerging.

Stunning: How Beyoncé usually looks

It's understood Beyoncé's own photographer, Frank Micelotta, will be the only snapper onsite at the tour. Reports circulated in February that the US star's publicist had requested pictures which didn't show Beyoncé at her best during her performance at the US Super Bowl be removed.

The photographs showed Beyoncé pulling a range of strange faces as the cameras clicked during her high-energy show.

Her UK publicist confirmed the ban on press photographers for the latest tour, according to the Daily Mirror. Instead, the media will be provided with pre-approved images from the shows.
