Does Beyonce really pay her interns in Pepsi and selfies?ADVERT ASKS APPLICANTS TO COMPILE OFFICIAL BLUE IVY BABY BOOK AND SCOUR INTERNET FOR UNFLATTERING PHOTOS AND REQUEST THEIR REMOVAL

An advert has appeared in which the global superstar and multimillionaire Beyonce Knowles appears to be looking for unpaid summer interns, who she plans to pay in Pepsi and selfies.

The advert states that the singer is seeking “Summer Public Relations Interns” for a position in New York City.  Potential applicants are told: “This internship is unpaid, but interns will receive school credit and unlimited Pepsi products during their internship. Interns will also have the opportunity to take three (3) selfies with Beyoncé over the course of the internship.”

According to the job description, successful candidates will “organize and maintain the official Beyoncé archive”, as well as “finding unflattering Beyoncé photos on the Internet and requesting their removal” and “helping to compile Blue Ivy’s official baby book”. Despite being unpaid, applicants are warned: “Please note that interns will be subject to a strict non-disclosure agreement in connection with their interactions with Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Blue Ivy and Solange.”

Here is the advert in full:
