The Queen herself is gracing the cover of British Vogue December issue and her interview was conducted by Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.
Edward Enninful shared a few words about Queen Bey he said, “I had the enormous honour of interviewing Beyonce and working with the gifted up-and-coming photographer Kennedi Carter on a 20-page fashion story. At just 21, Kennedi becomes the youngest photographer to capture a British Vogue cover.”
He added, “Everyone always wants to know what it’s like to work with Beyonce and her incredible team, and the answer is…flawless. A perfectionist to the core, more than anything, she wanted her Vogue moment to be filled with positivity as this trickiest of years draws to a close.”
Beyonce shared her experiences this year saying, she felt “absolutely changed” by the events of 2020. “I haven’t 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.”
She opened up about experiencing pressures and her focus now to spend more time with her family and being a mom to her three children saying, “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 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 o 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 also discussed the increased focus on Black and African creatives and culture in her work in recent years, a shift she attributes to giving birth to her first child Blue Ivy, in 2012. She said, “It became my mission to make sure she lived in a world where she feels truly seen and valued.”
