Beyoncé Stunts In Nothing But Glitter For Flaunt Magazine [Photo]
The Carters are taking over 2013. Beyonce recently snagged yet another magazine cover this time for Flaunt Magazine and wearing nothing but a coat of glitter body paint. Her interview with the magazine covers a number of topics from her status as a gay icon, her Pepsi campaign, random tidbits and more. Check out some excerpts and photos from the new issue:
Flaunt: Gay men are drawn to you and empowered by you, as they have been to “gay icons” Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Cher, and Madonna. What is it about you, and those women, that gay men love?
Beyonce: “I’m flattered if I’m in the company of those great women. I think they love that we are bold, unafraid to love, and flaunt our sexuality and strength.”
Flaunt: Some were critical at your participating in a Pepsi campaign after you moved your body for childhood obesity. Where is the balance between your career objectives and your philanthropy?
Beyonce: “Pepsi is a brand I’ve grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn’t encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance. When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it’s great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It’s all about choices.”
Flaunt: You have always carefully sculpted your image and controlled public access to your off-stage life. Is there anything to envy about stars who don’t care about safeguarding their private lives?
Beyonce: I have chosen to keep certain aspects of my life private. But I also love sharing what makes me happy, especially through photography.
Flaunt: Is there a sex scandal in history that you find not so scandalous, and instead just kinda awesome?
Beyonce: Antony and Cleopatra. The legend of that love affair affected history and lives to this day.
