Bey is back.

After several years of radio silence, Beyoncé has finally spoken publicly in an interview.

She sat down with Vogue to talk about identity, motherhood, self image and her family.

It's the most intimate portrayal of the singer we've had in along time but, of course, the interview was completely on her terms.

Beyoncé took over editorial control of Vogue for its September issue.

This special edition has been released with two versions of a cover and she appears on both.

One of the covers shows Bey sitting in an Antebellum style shirtdress and elaborate floral headpiece while the other shows her standing in a field in a colourful dress with corn rows.

The full editorial shoot is pure Queen Bey - arty lighting, fierce fashion and power poses galore.

The photos were taken by 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell, the first time in the Vogue's history that a black photographer had shot the cover.

"It’s important to me that I help open doors for younger artists," says Beyoncé in the interview.

"When I first started, 21 years ago, I was told that it was hard for me to get onto covers of magazines because black people did not sell.

"Clearly that has been proven a myth. Not only is an African American on the cover of the most important month for Vogue, this is the first ever Voguecover shot by an African American photographer."
