Beyonce’s ‘Vogue’ Edition Becomes 2013 Best Seller

Published: Friday 7th Jun 2013 by David

‘Gift From Virgo’ icon Beyonce has great cause to celebrate today.

For, in further solidifying her status as one of Pop’s more commercially potent royals, the star has seen her edition of ‘Vogue’ magazine sell enough units to become the highest selling edition this year, prompting praise from rival magazine ‘Glamour‘.

Good news below…

Owned by Charles Townsend‘s ‘Conde Nast’, Vogue saw it sales skyrocket when the 17 time Grammy winner dominated its pages as part of their ‘Power Edition‘, as seen here.

Outselling every single edition released this year, Beyonce‘s edition saw her speak openly on her fifth studio album and the learning experience that is motherhood, marriage and balancing her career with both.

Quite interestingly, in celebrating the news of Vogue’s win with the star, Cynthia Leive‘s ‘Glamour’ (also Nast owned) showered praise on the ‘Chime For Change’ front woman, explaining:

‘Singers like Beyonce do an incredible job of connecting with their fans’….an accurate estimation, especially considering news of this win comes after renewed interest in her LP ‘4’ have seen her combined global sales even further over the 60 million mark.

This, after her 2008 LP ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ saw its single sales surpass the 13.6 million milestone in October 2012 and her 2013 movie ‘Epic’ generated a sweet 85 million dollars in its Box Office opening weekend.

    • BitchyBey June 7, 2013

      Oh sit down you frosty s***. Where is Madonna’s cover. Oh that’s right the only magazine that will have her on their cover is Hags Daily.

      • Suicide Blonde June 7, 2013

        As of 2011, there have been 30 women who have appeared on the covers of Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, American Vogue and British Vogue.

        Madonna is one of those women.

        Ask Anna Wintour.

    • QueenB-rules June 7, 2013

      You’re really boring…lol

    • Yaz June 7, 2013

      Because Beyonce brings the hits to the site. They dont. Its not rocket science

    • Solange Knowles June 7, 2013

  15. Mya June 7, 2013

    Yas! Her Impact! Sam, you need to be a lil more clear, That’s over 60 million records in the USA (solo) & IASF 13.6 million in single sales in the USA.

  18. Ciara QUEEN Harris June 7, 2013

    Only because her fans purchased it. The average Vogue subscriber could care less about Fatty Bey. She is not high fashion nor we she ever be.

    • CiCi Slaaaaays June 7, 2013


    • FentySoSnatched June 7, 2013

      These C Flops are getting too big for their britches! TOO BIG FOR THEIR BRITCHES I SAY.

    • Navy Sailor June 7, 2013

      How’d Ciara’s cover d……nvm. 😆

  19. Mya June 7, 2013

    Yas! Her Impact! Sam you need to be a lil more clear. That’s over 60 million records in the USA (solo). IASF sold over 13.6 million singles in the USA.

  20. KELLY June 7, 2013

    Beyonce Vogue cover sold 340,000 copies.

    • babymonster June 7, 2013

      gaga sold 700k and adele sold 415k

      • KELLY June 7, 2013

        I’m not sure of Gaga, but I doubt Adele sold all this copies and her UK Vogue cover was one of a worst seller at well.

  21. CiCi Slaaaaays June 7, 2013

    Who cares tho?

    • Solange Knowles June 7, 2013

      Obviously you do. Your fave can’t even get a Hype Hair cover, let alone Vogue. Seethe scumbag, seethe.

      • Bey Fan June 7, 2013

    • babymonster June 7, 2013


    • Slayty Perry (The Female MJ) June 7, 2013


  25. KELLY June 7, 2013

    And why is it that the trashy Reality stars sell more copies than any other celebrities? I guess they are more accessible and open to discussing their life.

    • KELLY June 7, 2013

      I mean trashy reality stars sell more magazine covers (not necessarily Vogue 🙂 ).

  26. Beyonces_OrthopedicShoes June 7, 2013

    • Solange Knowles June 7, 2013

      Rihanna sold 230,000
      Beyonce sold 340,000
      The numbers don’t lie baby!

      • Natasha3 June 8, 2013

        That’s just 1 magazine……If you do some researched you will see that Beyoncé is among plenty of top celebrity women that can’t sells magazines. Rihanna may not have bring in huge numbers for vogue this time around, but she has for plenty of other magazines out there.

  27. Beyonces_OrthopedicShoes June 7, 2013

    I applaud vougue for allowing a plus size on their cover! My how things are changing! Now all the Gabourey Sidibe, and Christina agulieras have hope for the future

    • Suicide Blonde June 7, 2013

      LMFAO, Gabourey really!.

    • KELLY June 7, 2013

      Weak shade gurl. Who is the plus size? Don’t make no sense.

  28. KELLY June 7, 2013

    LMAO at Rihanna vogue cover being a WORST seller.

  29. Beyonces_OrthopedicShoes June 7, 2013

    When i think of beyfatback i think of ham hocks on a Styrofoam plate at a cook out in a Texas ghetto..

    • KELLY June 7, 2013

      Weak shade again. You mad because the Fashion Icon Miss Rihanna Forehead can’t sell fashion magazine?

  30. RIRI SLAY June 7, 2013

  32. soulmusiclover June 7, 2013

  33. Beyonces_OrthopedicShoes June 7, 2013

    Beyfatback sends a message to Kelly “Maytag” rowland…

    • Solange Knowles June 7, 2013

      How is Katy Perry the female MJ when her tour flopped?

    • Lou June 7, 2013

  41. Special Delivery June 7, 2013

    This just clapbacks all the Navy that diss Beyonce when it comes to high fashion.
    While Rihannas cover remained one of the WORST sellers for her year, BEYONCES is one of the BEST #Clapback.

    • Natasha3 June 8, 2013

      If you do some researched you will see that Beyoncé is among plenty of top celebrity women that can’t sells magazines. Rihanna may not have bring in huge numbers for vogue, but she has for plenty of other magazines out there.

  42. Solange Knowles June 7, 2013

    Sixteen years and still slaaaayyying I see why yall b****** are MADDDDDD!!!!

  43. Yaz June 7, 2013

    Congrats to her. Beyonce has huge star power whether you like it or not.

  44. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 7, 2013

    No shade but how did she manage to pull that off with THAT cover? She looks like Blue Ivy’s grandmother on it… All well congrats Beyonce but for the next Vogue shoot don’t let the style team aka your mother dress you… Enough is enough already

    • Lou June 7, 2013

      That wasn’t the cover darling.

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 7, 2013

        That photo wasn’t the cover photo? Oh which one is it?

  45. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 7, 2013

    If Rihanna’s vogue was worst selling then that’s fine, her photos in the damn magazine shitted over this cover… Let’s not pretend that Beyonce actually DESERVED these sales based on her fashion and “slayage”. I want to hear her sing something like Halo.. Give me that please

  46. PRINCE CARTER FENTY June 7, 2013

    I absolutely love this cover, Queen slayed this.

  47. Lou June 7, 2013

    ^^^^^But looks like numbers disagree.

    CONGRATS Beyoncé. I wonder where that troll is hiding today? I know its probably seething at this.

  48. Yeah I Said It June 7, 2013

    Goes to show less is more. Simple and demure. I like the first picture of her full on though better. And as for the other things cover. that looked like an alien in the corn field tbh.

  49. rihking June 7, 2013

    B**** looks like an old rag on the cover. Looks like a manly old white woman. Hmmm wonder how many beyoldtrannonyce actually bought.

    • Yeah I Said It June 7, 2013

      Don’t be mad cos Rihannas flopped

  50. I Will Adorn You June 7, 2013

    Well done her. I find it funny when stuff like this happens because people always find something to diss Beyonce with but she always ends up bouncing back with something to make em seethe.

  51. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. June 7, 2013

    I guess this is an accomplishment for a washed up flop whale like THIEFOnce, HOWEVER, the year isn’t over & her pushed back album will still flop. Look at “I wanna be a white grown woman”& “flop down 🙂

  52. Fran June 7, 2013

    Yay Queen Bey! I have my copy. The pictures were beautiful. Don’t be pressed now 😉

  53. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) June 7, 2013

    Are people really surprised though?? Lol jk, congrats Bey!

  54. Lovebird June 7, 2013

    It must have come free with every order of Popeye’s chicken because that is the only way I see it being a best seller. Either that or the fatty’s where finally happy a Fat b**** was on the cover.

  55. Lovebird June 7, 2013

    The t*****’s must have also bought a few extra copies because FINALLY a manly looking b**** was on it.

  56. Gilberto June 7, 2013

    King of deals and magazines.

  57. Lovebird June 7, 2013

    I also don’t understand why hood b****** bought a few copies, it’s not like they understand fashion outside House of Dead wrong and whatever they can get at Value Village. I mean come on it’s Vogue not Vibe.

  58. Lovebird June 7, 2013

    It also looks like the team at Vogue had a difficult time photoshopping that horrid grotesque body of Beyonce, so instead they covered the b**** up.

  59. LDN Chick June 7, 2013

    Go girl! This just shows Beyonce still has the pull factor after all these years shes even beating your faves even though shes so washed up and irrelevant (side eye)

  60. LDN Chick June 7, 2013

    I know some Navy members must be so pressed over this aswell since it was a know fact Rihannas flopped yet she supposedly owns Beyonce is everything high fashion.

    • Likica June 8, 2013

      Beyonce is among celebrities with most worst selling magazine covers 😉 Google is your friend ^^

      Beyoncé: 4 Worst-Selling Issues
      We did not see this one coming! Queen Bey may rule the world, but she does not rule the newsstand. We’re completely mystified about why the gorgeous mom doesn’t sell well.

      • LDN Chick June 8, 2013

        But this is Vogue and if Beyonce can sell Vogue who cares? Rihanna was listed as having one of the worst selling Vogue covers yet shes so above Beyoncé when it comes to everything high fashion according to the Navy. How does that work? So lets not.

  61. Loyalty June 7, 2013

    Congrats to my girl Bey! Don’t be mad at Beys achievements. Just focus on your faves. I see someone might be having a breakdown over this *scrolls up*

  62. DIGGER BEY June 7, 2013

    This s*** is so funny lmaoooo. Whenever TGJ post R**** posts, she really gets 50 to 80 comments. Mostly her Rihc*nts. But when TGJ posts about KING B, here come The Rihc*nts, the Pigina stans, the Mooriah stans, the Carl stans and other lesser stans bwahahahahahahahahahaha. It just goes to show u, the Lesser stans are ALWAYS CHECKING FOR THE QUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN bwahahahaahahaahahaha. I don’t comment n Mooriah, R****, Pigtina or Carl posts. Cause I’m not CHECKING for none these b******. But u C*nts are always CHECKIN FOR MY FAV! I luv it bwahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahaahahahahaha. #QUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN

  63. Vee June 7, 2013

    Congratulations Beyonce. Anna Wintour personally chose her to be Honorary Chair at this years Met Gala too. She sure must love ya even more now! That alone is like spit in the face to some people on this site! HAHA Stay mad!

    Who da f**** curr? Let her drop Standing On the Flop or Flop Woman and then tell me how much they sell.

  67. Micks June 7, 2013

    That’s not an easy thing to do. Not just anyone can sell Vogue (as we have seen). Well done Bey.

  68. Jewell June 7, 2013

    Don’t underestimate her.

  69. JER June 7, 2013

    I can’t hate. That look gave me everything Diana Ross
