In the Times Fashion & Style piece titled "Beyoncé is Seen but Not Heard," the writer highlights the fact that the "Drunk in Love" singer's Vogue September issue cover didn't include the accompanying interview that typically comes with landing a Vogue cover and the honor also came after two entire years in which Beyonce has paid the media virtual dust. Aside from her nonstop flawlessness, Bey's Vogue cover was a doubly huge deal because she became the first black female musician to be featured on the cover of the fashion publication's most lauded issue. Yet, her media silence persists.
Perhaps Queen Bey wouldn't be called out on her lack of face-to-face interviews if we weren't always smack dab in the middle of an endless stretch of Beyoncé mania (honestly, when are we not?). But the fact that she remains #unbothered about giving face time to a huge fashion mag (or anyone else, for that matter) might ruffle some feathers, but it speaks volumes about the name she's made for herself as an entertainer.
While other celebrities have to constantly keep their foot on the gas in order to propel themselves forward, Beyoncé basically has to wake up (like this), drop albums without warning, post some adorable pics on Instagram and have everyone continue to bow at her manicured feet.
SIGH. This is even more confirmation that being Beyoncé comes with some seriously enviable fringe benefits.
