Beyonce may be busy traveling across the world and shutting down the stage for her Mrs. Carter World Tour, but the singer is all set to drop her fifth studio album this year despite the numerous hours she’s spending entertaining her very loyal fan base. While many are still trying to figure out if Beyonce’s actually pregnant or not with her second child, just days after the singer’s camp officially shuts down the rumors, it appears there’s more good news for the “Grown Woman.” According to new reports, her March 2013 issue of Vogue Magazine looks to be the magazine’s year bestseller to date. The Honesty Hour reports:
If you thought that she was slowing down, you may want to think again.
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter appeared on the March 2013 Power issue of Vogue magazine and it just so happened to become the year’s bestseller — this according to Hispanic Business.
The Queen of Entertainment stunned in a glamorous centerfold, photographed by the famed Patrick Demarchelier. In the spread, aptly titled, The Queen B, Beyoncé opened up about her Super Bowl XLVII halftime performance, singing at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration, motherhood, and a bit about her forthcoming album which she says “is a lot more sensual . . . empowering.”
This is pretty big news for brown girls everywhere because research from the previous year claimed black starlets struggle to sell the magazines they cover. Even Rihanna was labeled as one of Vogue’s worst selling cover girls recently, and many seem to think it’s because Vogue’s readership isn’t necessarily the most diverse.
Now considering it’s only June, Beyonce could be dethroned, but the editors of the magazine seem to think she’ll hold on tightly to her position because music artists tend to perform better than actresses and models.
