Los Angeles, May 31 (IANS) Singer Beyonce Knowles is upset with retail brand H&M for using edited and retouched photographs of her for a campaign.
Beyonce modelled for their bikinis, but she got upset when they shrank her curves in the edited pictures.
She was outraged that her pictures had been retouched in shots for an advertising campaign, whereas she wanted only her natural pictures to be used, reports thesun.co.uk.
“When Beyonce found out they had edited the way her body really looked, she hit the roof. She’s a true diva and was furious that she had been given such a snubbing. Her people refused to give the pictures the green light, so H&M were forced to use the originals,” said a source.
The retailer announced earlier this year that the 31-year-old will be the face of its 2013 summer collection. She has since appeared in its bikini and beachwear ads worldwide.
An H&M spokesman admitted that there had been “discussions” about the photos. The spokesperson also said the final published pictures were not doctored.
