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.”

    @boston61: ‘I do not know one of her songs’……………do you not own a TV or radio? You must be completely out of touch with Pop culture.

    She is on the cover of self magazine to talk about she gives? I never even heared her involving in any charity in my life. She makes 80 million dollar a year it is about time.

    Beyonce being fierce & perfect (what’s new)

    Carrie Says:


    First of all, “heared” is not a word in the English dictionary. It is “heard”
    Second of all, just because she never publicly admit to doing charity work to get attention doesn’t mean that she hasn’t done any. There’s a “Knowles-Rowland Center for Youth” that allows kids somewhere to go after school in Downtown Houston.

    Check this out before you say anything:

    FYI. I believe the magazine editors choose what clothes Beyonce will be wearing and the background. Don’t blame something that she has no control over. It is THEIR magazine, not hers.

    So AMERICANIZED?! That is the most ignorant statement about Beyonce I have EVER heard…she’s AMERICAN!!!!!!!!!

    It’s not that she can’t say no to anyone, it’s the fact that EVERYONE WANTS HER!!!!! L’oreal, Nintendo, Vizio, American Express, Pepsi, Tommy Hilfiger, Purses and Bottled Water in Japan…everyone WANTS her, and she’s a hard working woman of course she’s gonna sign these deals, WHO WOULDN’T?!?!??

    boston61 Says:

    Fierce perfect and ashamed of her natural looks. Why the glued on hair?Why the breast implants? Why can’t she look the way god made her? What kind of example is she setting for young girls? Her music is a real as her hair. IMO

    Crystal Says:

    My only issue with Beyonce is the oversaturation. If she can go away for a couple years and give people a chance to really miss seeing her, I’d appreciate it. Like someone else said, there’s no need for her to always be in the spotlight. She’s a boss. There’s nothing left to prove. That said, she is very beautiful (without any work done; this gorgeous black woman is all real unlike some other names in the industry) and talented. And her speaking voice is not ghetto. That’s an idiotic thing to say. She’s from Houston and has an accent. Is she supposed to change the way she talks because she’s a big star? Please.

    @boston61: Then go crawl back under your rock. “Crazy in love” is still banging all these years in the club, enough said, that’s not even to mention all the other crazy hits. Have you heard Single Ladies with like a zillion parodies.
    She talks like a ghetto and can still burn your house down with cash. You talk like an educated and sit on your fat ass hating other people’s success
