Stop everything. Beyonce‘s latest magazine editorial is finally here and it’s better than we could have ever imagined.
The singer appears on Out magazine’s May cover looking hot, hot, hot. The issue, appropriately entitled “Power” shows us Queen Bey donning platinum blonde hair, pearls and a black bustier… which sometimes just happens to slip off and forces Beyonce to cover her girlie parts with her hands. Photographed by Santiago & Mauricio, Bey also rocks a white suit, posing with one hand on her hip — pretty much saying “bow down, bitches.”
But what’s even more amazing than these shots, is how open the singer was about her music, career and sexuality. The 32-year-old pointed out that being sexy isn’t something that is assigned to certain people, it’s universal. “You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.”
She also spoke about the double standards that exist when it comes to said sexuality. “There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy,” she told the magazine. “The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that.”
Bey, being her awesome self, made sure however, that everyone knows that her message of empowerment should pertain to everyone. “[W]hat I’m really referring to, and hoping for, is human rights and equality, not just that between a woman and a man,” she said. “We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.”
Is there anything bad about Beyonce? We don’t think so, but if there is… we just can’t find it. Head over to Out magazine to read the whole amazing interview.
