Poynter reported that the artist won't allow publications to send their own photographers to her concerts, and instead provided a set of pre-approved images.
Photography blog Fstoppers said that the megastar's tour guidelines for photographers stated, "There are no photo credentials for this show."
The star is not the only artist to hold stipulations on photography. Lady Gaga has insisted on copyright from photographers at her shows. Her publicist said that the request "often comes from artists who've been stuck having to pay a ton for a shot they want for a box set, merch, etc."
The Killers forbade outside photographers this year as well, which led photographer Debbie Hickey to include a photo of Lego sculptures of the band with Irish music site GoldenPlec's review of their concert.
