Beyonce has opened up about what the COVID-19 pandemic has taught her. The music icon is featured on the cover of British Vogue and was shot by Kennedi Carter, a 21-year-old Black photographer.
During the interview, Beyonce revealed how her life changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. She said, “Absolutely changed. It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed. I have learned 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 continued, “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 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.”
