Miley, Charlie and more!
January 17th, 2014
Beyoncé is having a stellar 2014. She’s broken ground in the last two months for her execution of the self-titled Beyoncé, a visual album that, well, no one knew about until it was released, which went on to be one of the biggest sellers of 2013. She’s been enjoying the success of the album well into the new year and deserves all the accolades she’s received. You don’t become Queen Bey by releasing sub par material.
Known for keeping her private life private, Beyoncé has recently been opening up online. She launched her personal site Beyoncé.com in 2012 and has been increasing her activity on social media in the past few months. But damn, Bey, what is up with your Instagram account this week?
We have a lot of die-hard Rihanna fans in the Much office, but even some of the most devoted of us Navy members have been forced to unfollow the singer for her relentless posting of pictures of herself. That’s what galleries on blogs are for. Bey seems to be flying the way of the Rihanna-bird and has been averaging up seven selfies per day.
You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t consider Beyoncé one of the most beautiful women in the world, but do we have to be reminded about it every time we go to the bathroom? Don’t even pretend you check Instagram any other way.
Here’s an example. Five shots, two filters and one pair of denim shorts. Necessary?
On January 16th alone there were 11 pictures of a solo Beyoncé. Eleven!
Usually, Beyoncé posts artistically-inspired photos or candid shots of herself and her family, but recently it’s been a slew of Google image results.
Here’s an example of fun pic Beyoncé posted in December. Yay!
Here’s a picture she posted later that month. Gorgeous! Hot! Her body looks amazing! Why is this picture one of three of the exact same dress from almost the same angle? Nay.
What happened? Did Beyoncé get a different phone and is trying to post all her old pics before the new SIM card is inserted? Has Blue Ivy mastered uploading Instagram pics while left unsupervised at the family computer?
I don’t know the answer to these questions. What I do know is that I’m very sad and a little nauseous that Beyoncé has forced me to use the term Instavention.
