Beyonce doesn’t just “feed the gram” the way some social superstars do. Indeed Beyonce doesn’t do anything the way most superstars do, which makes her — in the eyes of her legions of fans — something bigger and better, stronger and higher up than the rest.
It’s a tough road to travel for any celebrity, because so many people look up to you and project their own beliefs on you, asking you to be strong so that they can feel strong.
For example, you might think every Queen Bey fan would love the photo below, showing Beyonce out in all her gorgeousness. Nothing flashy, just here I am…
Yet to show how hard it is to please everyone, this photo actually lost Beyonce a fan who decided to unfollow the Queen because of what the fan believes is too much vanity from the star. (One wonders: has the fan spent much time on Instagram? Vanity is the coin of the realm there!)
Anyway, Beyonce is used to it. You please 50 million people and displease one and you’re doing pretty well. We only bring it up to show what a difficult position it is to occupy, being someone’s hero. Here’s the full comment from the lost fan:
“Yes she’s number one, yes she’s beautiful, yes she’s amazing. There’s no other like her and we love her. BUT…this insta is all about look at me look at me look at me look at me. Beyonce it’s boring and shallow. Thought you were better than that. I’m unfollowing from now, getting some of my soul .”
