For more than two decades, Beyoncé has been one of the biggest stars in the world and has managed to remain elusive and not make extensive press releases in recent years. But a new trend on TikTok reminds us why — and why she shouldn’t. Before social media, interviews were the main way fans could get a glimpse into the lives of celebrities and learn about their personalities, work ethic and other fun facts. But as technology advanced and social media platforms became popular, celebrities were able to engage directly with their fans and these platforms became the main way for them to reach their fans. This is why Beyonce is one of the biggest celebrities in the world – and why she can be so elusive and not make extensive press releases in recent years. Thanks to her social media presence, her fans can get a glimpse into her life and stay in touch without her having to do press releases.

Social media has revolutionized the way artists tell their stories and present their perspectives to the world. Beyoncé is an example of an artist who has harnessed this power to her own advantage, allowing her to separate her work from her personal life. Thanks to her judicious use of social media, fans only know about Beyoncé what she wants them to know — allowing her to protect her privacy. Since 2013, she has only done a few interviews, preferring to let her story be told through her social media channels. It’s the perfect illustration of how artists can take control of their own story – something that wasn’t so easily achievable before the rise of social media.
