Beyoncé Does Not Speak to the Press

Nothing to say.

Screen Shot 2015-08-21 at 8.52.10 AMBeyoncé graced the cover of Vogue’s vital September issue, but there wasn’t a word from her inside the magazine. Instead, all readers got was an essay about how popular she is. Seems odd, right? Why turn down a profile that will only make you look as good as possible? Turns out this is how Beyoncé rolls.

According to The New York Times, Beyoncé hasn’t done a face-to-face interview since 2013. A member of Beyoncé’s team even admitted that the 33-year-old star hasn’t answered a direct question in more than a year.

Of course none of this matters, because Beyoncé doesn’t need the press. She chooses to tell her tale via film, like the unintentionally hilarious Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream, a “documentary” about Beyoncé, written and produced by Beyoncé. She also conveys her mystical ways on Instagram, with endless photos of herself, herself and herself.

Beyoncé is obsessed with Beyoncé and the Beyoncé brand, and yet everyone loves her. The worst possible thing she could do is speak up.
