Beyoncé covers British Vogue‘s December 2020 issue and not everyone is happy about it.
The diva had so much to show that she needed three covers. The singer, 39, who was photographed by 21-year-old Kennedi Carter, wore a lime outfit from her Ivy Park collection in one of the covers.
The youngest photographer to shoot any British Vogue cover in the magazine’s 104-year history captured the Texan diva in a sheer knit catsuit that leaves nothing to the imagination.
In the third cover, Jay-Z‘s wife went for a classy yet edgy look by wearing a black and red Alexander McQueen blazer and no pants.
Beyoncé got honest and raw about how she has changed during the coronavirus pandemic. The Grammy winner said that the crisis has forced her to slow down and focus on her family — husband Jay-Z and their three children; Blue, 8, and twins Sir and Rumi, 3.
The artist confessed: “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 nonstop.”
She went on to share: “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 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 revealed how motherhood opened her eyes and shifted her views: “Something cracked open inside of me right after giving birth to my first daughter. From that point on, I truly understood my power. … It became my mission to make sure she lived in a world where she feels truly seen and valued. I was also deeply inspired by my trip to South Africa with my family.”
As to why she decided to honor her son, Sir, on her latest project, Beyoncé explained: “After having my son, Sir Carter, I felt it was important to uplift and praise our 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. That’s why the film is dedicated to him.”
For some unknown reason, many people rushed into the comment section to shame Beyoncé for her body and her age.
A harsh comment read: “She out here looking kinda old.” This social media user made wild accusations by saying: “This lady got her body done. There, I said it.”
Another chimed in: “I believe so too. Them hips looking like some of the girls on IG. And all these fools talking bout it’s natural. I saw it on that last ivy park ad that she did a while ago. Ion like how her hips are looking. @ y’all rotten teeth mama!”
Beyoncé’s fans rapidly stepped in to defend her. This member of Beyhive tore the naysayers down with this epic clap-back on behalf of the iconic entertainer: “It’s hard to think that of all people Beyoncé would need to get her body done. Her body had these curves her whole life….after having blue, she got real skinny but always had this same shape…. then after them twins, she just gained weight…. and filled out her shape way more than we’re used to. Nothing about her body has ever really changed besides her gaining or losing weight….”
A backer of the “Single Ladies” artist shared: “I mean, she’s still serving face, and her body is way more banging and voluptuous, so if that’s “old,” then ok. They are so jealous. Beyoncé has been thick since she was a teenager.”
This supporter wrote: “She done already said a thousand times she natural why tf is it hard to believe that a black woman can be slim thick. This generation just doesn’t get that. They acting look we going be young forever.”
Queen Bey has people talking no matter what she does.
