Beyonce Covers 'Self' September 2010

Beyonce Covers 'Self' September 2010

Beyonce is glowing on the cover of Self‘s September 2010 issue!

Here’s what the 28-year-old entertainer and philanthropist had to share:

On why she does charity work: “I’ve always felt that you should give because it’s what you can do to help. You don’t do it to get praised. For a long time, being quiet about what I did was a conscious decision. When you look around at all that’s wrong in the world, the need to do something, no matter how big or how small, is clear.”

On what motivates her: “Sisterhood means everything to me. All the charities I’m involved with are special, but I find any organization that focuses on women and children really motivating. GEMS and the young ladies the nonprofit helps are very close to my heart. And what I took away from the clients at Phoenix House changed my life. These were real people who touched me so much that I had to go beyond making a donation. They’re gaining skills at the Cosmetology Center, which will help them earn a living and find their way out of substance abuse—it’s a testament to the possibility of second chances.”

On how anyone can make a difference: “Think about what truly touches you and motivates you to help, then start locally. Once it’s in your heart to give, you’ll have to follow through. I am a happy woman—very happy—because I know that I’ve worked hard, and I love being able to give back.”

    @[marie]: She will retire once she’s flopping and she’s lost all passion. She is too amazing at what she does.

    Ok. Just a question. Why do people love to hate on Beyonce? Even my sister, everytime a Beyonce video comes on she’s all ‘ugh’

    Monelle Says:

    @Leila: Her personality is really, really boring.
    She comes across basic in interviews.
    She’s so Americanized and comes across phony.
    Bish can’t say no to anything…she’s everywhere. It’s like she has to have her face on everything & be at every event.
    Gurl, I could go onnnn.

    This is a great artist and everything…

    but this is not her body…her haid is bizarre etc etc…

    And she’s so powerfull, and beautiful, why don’t organize some photoshoot original, with crazy make up, or crazy poses, or original places…

    If I was her, I’ll do everytthing but a poor orange dress, smooth hair and white back….so sad.

    God, why rich people don’t have taste and ideas…..and I repeat I really love her as a singer, and as a dancer….

    Ellie Says:

    LOLL, Retire?? you are in for one sad life if you are just waiting for her to quit. she is just getting started and will be around for awhile and keep making history….if she retired NOW, she would still already be a LEGEND. But not our Bey, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    V Says:

    U know, I hate it when people say Beyonce is overrated lol. Do they even know what that term means. Overrated as apposed to….?

    Some people do things just a little better than others. Usually, when you perfect your voice, your dancing will lack. If you focus on your dancing, your vocals will lack. Few people have perfected both. Miss Knowles is one of them.

    Deal with it…..who cares what you think? You are just a sad case of envy.. crawl back under your rock.

    …what beyonce needs to do is grow up a little. relax, take a little break, and have a child or something. there’s no reason for her to continue to work harder than everyone else. she’s at the top, she’s been there for years.. she has no competition whatsoever. there’s room to take it down a notch or two. she could take a 2 years break, return, and still sell a million records within the first 2 weeks… and that’s off her name alone.
    anyone that hates her – hates her work ethic, they hate her success.

    I don’t understand why anyone would hate Beyonce unless they are very jealous! She is gorgeous, business-savvy, and insanely talented. From her interviews she seems like a caring and sweet person. Just because she’s not out-there like Gaga doesn’t mean she’s ‘boring!’ Sheesh. I know it’s surprising to see a pop star who’s not on drugs or in rehab or in a sex tape!

    People mad at Beyonce because they don’t have NOTHING on her NOTHING what can you say, She doesn’t talk about what goes on in her life and people get upset about that LOL! It’s all about the Music with Beyonce and that’s what going to Keep her around for a long time.

    I love the fact that she doesn’t the Media into her life

    Mandine Says:

    @MllleF: I KNOW! That’s exactly what I was thinking. Why can’t rich and powerful people be somehow creative and original? A little orange dress and a white background, really? I know she neither chose the background nor the clothes she’s wearing but she could have said that it wasn’t special and that she wanted to make the cover a bit edgier. Ugh. As for the fact that people love to hate Beyoncé because she’s so successful……Well, the only thing I can say is THEY DO, INDEED!

    Because when she talks she sounds very uneducated. Very getto. Plus her music is undistinct and unmemorable. I do not know one of her songs.
