Until now, at least. Bey tells Vogue UK in a cover interview for… » 4/03/13 9:00am 4/03/13 9:00am

WELL, OKEY DOKEY, THEN. I mean, who knows what's true in this whole shitty puppetfuck, and whether or not any of it was any of our business (if the retraction is legit, then it most definitely wasn't).
