Beyoncé and JAY-Z are currently wowing European audiences on their “On the Run II” tour, but they are also shocking fans on social media with some very provocative photos.

Apparently, in the OTRII tour book, there are a few photos of Queen Bey semi-naked in the bed with her hubby Hov. In one pic, JAY is smoking a cigar, while Beyoncé is reading the morning newspaper in a thong bikini. We must mentioned that the R&B singer’s booty is gloriously on display. We are not mad at it.

In another revealing picture, both Bey and JAY are in a warm embrace with the singer covering her breasts with her knees. Clearly, they are in love and don’t mind sharing these intimate photos with their fans.

However, once the photos hit the internet, Twitter went into a frenzy. Some people thought the pics were unbecoming of an R&B superstar and mom. However, the Beyhive came to her defense against the critics by comparing Bey’s photos to that of Kim Kardashian’s rash of nude pics.

Some feel that if it’s okay for Kim to post semi-nude photos on social media, then no one should have an issue when Beyoncé does it.

But there are also a large contingent of fans who didn’t want to see anything nude-related from either JAY or Beyoncé.

So there you have it. You can’t please everybody. Honestly, the photos look beautiful and we appreciate the superstar couple sharing their love to the world.
