Beyonce is very secretive when it comes to her personal life and her music projects. Fans were happy and shocked when she unveiled her visual album, Lemonade, back in April. Little did they know; she was dropping hints on Instagram all this time.
Now, it looks like Beyonce has a secret Snapchat account that even some of her most dedicated fans don’t know about. It also appears that her mom, Tina Knowles, was the one who spilled the beans with a new video on social media. The theory about Beyonce’s secret Snapchat has been circling all weekend long.

According to a Saturday, August 13, report via The Fader, Beyonce’s mom Tina shared a clip that showed her involved in a face swap with Beyonce. In the clip, seen below, Beyonce is seen rapping along to “The Message” by Grandmaster Flash. It’s kind of disturbing, but Bey’s fans will find it funny.
“My Baby Beyonce sent me this,” Tina wrote. “It’s really cool! I have to learn how to do this her face and my face together. Her voice coming out of my mouth. Or maybe it’s her mouth! Hell I don’t know. Really weird. No Snapchat!! Seriously!! “It’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under. Don’t push me! cause I’m close to the edge I’m trying not to lose my head! The Message by Grand Master Flash.”
The Fader went on to speculate that Beyonce may have a secret Snapchat account, which is how she was able to use the face swap filter in the clip. However, Tina says in her caption “No Snapchat,” which could either mean that Beyonce did not use Snapchat’s face-swap filter to create this video.
But, according to the Daily Dot, it’s unlikely that Queen Bey would have a secret Snapchat account. Why? Because she hardly uses social media in general. Beyonce currently has 14.5 faithful followers on Twitter but has only tweeted nine times in the past seven years.

In addition, Beyonce has 81 million followers on Instagram and 65 million followers on Facebook, but she hardly posts on either account. When she does, she will post an adorable photo or video of her daughter, Blue Ivy, or one of her many photo shoots.
Beyonce is a lot more active on Instagram and Tumblr. She will post on the social media sites at least once a week. Here are some recent photos of Bey and Jay looking chic as ever on their latest trip to Italy, where all of the hottest couples have been jetting to lately.
Beyonce hardly posts on social media because she’s a busy woman who’s slaying the world. She is THE Beyonce, after all. It’s hard to see Beyonce lying around and trying out the many filters on Snapchat. Plus, there are plenty of apps like MSQRD and Face Swap Live that allow you to use do a face swap without the use of Snapchat.
Back in 2013, rumors swirled that Beyonce had a secret Instagram account. According to a rumor started on Rollingout, Beyonce may have a secret account aside from her own under the handle name @BaddieBey.

According to MTV, Beyonce promoted her account on her website and Tumblr, asking her fans to follow her. But then, she changed over and made Beyonce her official Instagram account, according to The Jasmine Brand. It’s become the account we all know and love today. Even though it doesn’t show much of Beyonce’s personality, it still gives us a peek into her glamorous lifestyle.
When you take a look at the @BaddieBey account today, you will see that there is no profile picture and no posts to show. However, it still has over 10,000 followers who are hoping that Beyonce will post there again sometime soon.
