Pictures Of A Beautiful 33-Year-Old Black Woman Look Like Pictures Of A Beautiful 33-Year-Old Black Woman

I'm not going to pretend to not know why this story is a story. Beyonce is Beyonce. And seeing less than flawless images of a woman who's known for being so perpetually and publicly flawless that she unironicially created two versions of a song called "Flawless" — a song that, if created by literally anyone else (including an actual flawless person like Jesus or Dr. Manhattan or Nicole Beharie) would not have been appreciated in an unironic manner — might be jarring. And by "might be jarring" I mean "might be jarring to those not aware what actual live human women look like." Or "those who took Beyonce's flawlessness literally, assuming she was the human version of the motherfucking Hope Diamond."

But Beyonce is not flawless. She looks to have some imperfections in her skin that might not look completely flattering in certain light. I'm 99% sure she can not dunk a basketball. Or gulp a half gallon of Honey Jack in one sitting. Or properly enunciate certain words. She's apparently on some vegan shit now, which means her farts probably smell like wet dry dog food and Detroit.

She is a human being. And we will all be ok.
