Silence. It isn't something you would expect from a superstar entertainer who is, arguably, one of the biggest names in all of music. It is, however, something you can expect from Beyoncé. The New York Times pointed out that we haven't actually heard the songstress talk for herself in quite a long time.

What tipped people off is that Beyoncé, who is on the cover of Vogue's September Issue, doesn't actually have quotes in her interview. Now, that would seem strange any other month. It is especially strange in September because that month is the most important month of the year for the fashion magazine. This year is no different, with the tome coming in at four pounds and 832 pages - surely they could have fit an interview with her into the magazine somewhere. Typically, the person on the cover gets interviewed in a fascinating place or while doing some shopping. That didn't happen this year. Instead, the pages are filled with quotes from various designers about Beyoncé.

So why is the woman, who publicly declared herself a feminist, allowing so many other people to talk for her?

It isn't clear. Margo Jefferson, who won the Pulitzer for criticism, wrote the piece that accompanied her photos. She had something interesting to say about the interview, claiming that she had "no contact" with Beyoncé’s camp and that the article was posed as a "think piece." Vogue's representation hasn't commented on the situation, but it is indeed strange.

When people dug a little deeper, they realized that Beyoncé, despite having albums, tours, and singles released, hasn't answered a question in over a year. Furthermore, looking back to other interviews, she rarely answers questions that aren't in writing.

Some have suggested that Beyoncé, who keeps a log of every photo or mention that happens in mainstream media, might not like the way she comes across. At times, her quotes have been ridiculed. She thinks that the way she comes across isn't a great choice for her "brand."

Beyoncé, of course, has declined to say anything about the article.
