Beyoncé doesn’t want fans posting pictures of her Coachella performance online

Easier said than done...

Prior to her headline performance at Coachella, Beyoncé has asked fans and media outlets not to post photos they’ve taken of her sure-to-be blistering show.

As reported by Page Six, the singer’s publicist sent out an email on Friday to news outlets asking for them to refrain from using fan photos of her Coachella performance.

Instead, they should stick to approved shots of the Saturday night performance.


This harkens back to the 2013 incident when a shot of Beyoncé performing at the Super Bowl went viral. Following that her tram infamously emailed Buzzfeed asking the website to take down a series of “unflattering photos” from the event.

Reports leading up to the event suggest that Beyoncé and her team were putting in 11-hour long rehearsals. 

Bey has booked a “a high-profile L.A. studio” for her and her choreographers and back-up dancers to practice in. The studio will be guarded by seven members of security staff to keep out any pesky onlookers.

With Coachella’s second day nearly wrapped up, we’ve already seen a surprise performance from Kendrick Lamar and the Walmart ‘Yodelling Kid’.


It has also been reported that Beyonce will reunite with former girl band Destiny’s Child as part of her headline set.
