Instead of basking in the Super Bowl afterglow, Beyonce is…

Instead of basking in the afterglow of starring in the best Super Bowl halftime show we have seen in years, Beyonce is employing a publicist who chasing down media outlets who deign to run screenshots of her performance deemed unflattering.

If I looked like this, it’s all I’d care about.

Via BuzzFeed

Via Gawker:

On Monday, our pals at Buzzfeed assembled an incoherent list of 33 Beyoncé pictures and GIFs taken from her Super Bowl performance, and posted it under the title “The 33 Fiercest Moments From Beyoncé’s Halftime Show.”

On Tuesday, they received an email from Beyoncé’s publicist (“head worker bey”), politely asking them to DESTROY ALL UNFLATTERING PHOTOS OF BEYONCÉ IN EXISTENCE.

“Thanks for taking my call. As discussed, there are some unflattering photos on your current feed that we are respectfully asking you to change. I am certain that you will be able to find some better photos.

The worst are #5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 19 and 22.

Thank you very much.

If I were Buzzfeed, I’d have responded with an email comprised of nothing but John Mayer guitar faces.

Feel better Yvette?

I don’t own this photo

I went to New Orleans

It was a quickie – just two nights!

I stayed at the French Quarter W. The service could not have been better.

NO Whatever

I arrived by cab in the midst of a conference call. The valet whisked my bag inside and pointed me toward an open couch. When it was clear that my call wasn’t ending, the Concierge motioned to my purse. I gave him my license and corporate card. He checked me in and delivered my bag to my room.

NO Tarot

My room decor, including this tarot card-inspired mural looming over my bed, was typical W. Which is to say atypical. It worked for me–although the mural may have given me some weird dreams. Who knows!

I had dinner with some business partners, @MW_ and @ticktock6 at Cochon. My second visit. I ordered a ham hock with späetzle. Delicious. I was too busy eating and talking to take pics.

NO bubbly

A business partner sent me sparkling wine. Next time I complain about biz travel, please smack me.

Just in time for my trips to New Orleans and Naples (Florida, not Italy).

Don’t worry: I have scheduled lots of posts to hopefully keep you entertained while I’m away.

I plan to come back with good pictures and stories. Enjoy your week!
