Say it isn't so! Could Beyonce be HUMAN?!

It’s time to rejoice… Beyonce Knowles is human!

Yesterday, fan site The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly un-retouched photos of the singer, 33, that saw her in a rather different light to usual.

In the close-up snaps, Beyonce appears to *GASP* have blemishes and pimples on her skin. Yes, spots! Just like the rest of us!

The images are said to be from two 2013 L’Oreal make-up campaigns, which Jay-Z‘s wife is a spokesperson for.

True to form, Beyonce still looks totally fierce. And it’s refreshing to see that beautiful celebrities might actually have the odd off-day.

It definitely makes us feel better about ourselves, anyway.

Some of Bey‘s fans – dubbed the Beyhive – agree.

One wrote on Twitter: ‘just saw leaked untouched pictures of Beyoncé. she really is flawless. i’m crying,’ while another said: ‘Still beautiful dou.’

A particularly emotional devotee posted: ‘still a beautiful (& richer than u so stfu) woman.’ Touché!

However, others are less happy about their idol being seen as anything less than perfect. In fact, some reckon the pictures have been doctored.

‘why you are photoshopping the queen to look worse??’ Tweeted one. Other comments included: ‘Refuse to believe this is real’ and ‘nope… These are fake 😪.’

The furore ended up becoming too much for The Beyonce World, who’ve since taken the shots down.

‘Due to the disdain of the BeyHive, we have removed the photos. We don’t want to cause any drama, nor do we wish to start fan wars,’ reads a statement on their site.

‘Some of the things we have seen posted were just horrible, and we don’t want any parts of it.

‘We were just posting the photos to share the fact that our queen is naturally beautiful, at the same time she is just a regular woman.’

Whatever the truth, there’s no doubt Bey is one total stunner.
