Beyoncé given full control of September Vogue issue
Beyoncé would not only be on the cover of the September issue of Vogue magazine, but is reported to have been given unprecedented control over the cover, the photos of her inside and the captions, which the singer wrote herself, Huffington Post reports. This is a unique move as Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour usually has complete control over the entire issue. Beyoncé has reportedly hired a black photographer to shoot the cover, the first time this has happened in the magazine's 126-year history. HuffPo also reported that adult film actress Stormy Daniels is expected to be featured in the September or October issue after being shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.
