African-American singer/fashion designer and producer Beyonce has featured as the cover star of the British “Vogue” December issue magazine.
The pictures for the cover of the “December issue” were shot by 21 year old Kennedi carter, a photographer from North Carolina, making him the youngest person to shoot a British Vogue cover in the 104 years in existence of the magazine.
The December issue features three different covers.
The shots were followed by Beyonce’s interview with editor in-chief of vogue magazine Edward Enninful.
On Zoom, Beyonce stated that she felt absolutely changed by the occurring events in 2020.
“I have learnt that my voice is clearer when I am still. I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life.”
“I came into the music industry at 15 years old and grew up with the world watching, and I have put out projects non-stop”.
“I released Lemonade during the Formation world tour, gave birth to twins, performed at Coachella, directed Homecoming, went on another world tour with Jay, then [directed film] Black Is King, all back to back. It’s been heavy and hectic. I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on building my legacy and representing my culture the best way I know how. Now, I’ve decided to give myself permission to focus on my joy.” She added.
Beyonce also discussed her noticeably increased focus on African culture, which she attributed to the birth of her first child in 2012, Blue Ivy.
“It became my mission to make sure she lived in a world where she feels truly seen and valued,” she stated.
“After having my son, Sir in 2017, I felt it was important to uplift and praise or boys, and to assure that they grow up with enough films, children’s books and music that promote emotional intelligence, self-value and our rich history,” she added.
Beyonce’s last appearance on the vogue magazine was in 2013. She wrote her own cover story for the “Vogue” in 2018, talking about the challenges she faced giving birth to her twins in 2017 and insisting that Vogue hired 23 year old African-American Tyler Mitchell, to shoot the cover.
