Has Beyoncé already forgotten her digitally enhanced thigh gap furore? Once again Twitter followers accuse the op star of manipulating her selfies

"My message behind this album was finding the beauty in imperfection," said Beyoncé of her self-titled album, her last musical offering. The jury's still out however, on whether she finds beauty in her own perfection, as yet again her Twitter followers are out in numbers enraged by her latest suspect selfie alteration.

According to Photoshop experts speaking to Buzzfeed, the two latest snaps are suspect - a curious inward curve to her hips and the distortion to her backdrop (note the curtain curve by her waist) both suggest a little photo honing and body toning has taken place.

The irony here is that the shots in question feature the 33-year-old wearing a leotard with the logo "99 problems and my a** ain't one," which only serves to turn her into a sitting social media duck for messing with her vital stats.


"Stop editing your pictures, what if you go missing? How can we find you if you look like Beyonce on Instagram and walk flaka in person," said one follower, with an alternative point to make. "Beyonce don't make a million on songs about feminism and the illusion of perfection then shop every GDphoto," exclaimed another. "Someone REALLY needs to give Beyonce a lesson in Photoshop," added another.

This isn't of course the first time the mother-of-one has come under fire from her Twitter followers for her shady way with a selfie. Back in April, during a holiday in the Dominican Republic, photos of a new "thigh gap" caused suspicion. Her followers were understandably angered by the digitally enhanced space between her thighs: "Beyonce? we all love your thick thighs. NO reason to photo shop a thigh gap in there..," quipped one, while we reported that other users labelled her irresponsible.

She paid no attention. Five months later she skipped down the steps of her yacht with a bigger, better thigh gap - but one that confirmed the worse with its little attention to detail (look closely at the odd angle of the step between her thighs).

So, with her a** ruled out, an amateur way with Photoshop and public enemies are her only problems right now. Maybe we misunderstood when she once told us, "we need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves," because while we conjured up images of girl power, it seems that she was getting click happy reshaping her own body with Photoshop - The Telegrapgh
