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 ….That’s GOD (not god) to you..the ALMIGHTY GOD if you knew what respect is. Since you brought up the Religious card, the least you could do is to humble and dignify yourself. We understand you loathe her with your being but that does not absolve you from printing GOD’s name in accordance. Next time if you going to question someone’s faith look inside your soul first..miss religious zealot…

    @music247: Umm Britney’s not a role model for her examples but for her mistakes. Britney has proved you can get to your lowest point and then rise back to the top again

    @Monelle:
    That “charity work” is just another excuse for someone to do another lame article on that vapid marketing drone, Beyonce. I don’t think she’d do such work if she knew she wouldn’t also get a chance to sound humble and score more magazine covers talking about it. Plus everyone involved acts starstruck around her all the time. Having seen her reaction to someone who was less than impressed with her, I imagine B loves admirers – no matter how many times she says she’s shy.
    “Shy” sounds more desirable than “uppity”.
    (I know this type of chick well: I’m rather alarmed by how much Beyonce reminds me of my mother. Trust, there’s a personality in there (not to be confused with intelligence), but the public won’t ever see it. And sadly, if my mother’s any indication, we’ll have to put up with B in our faces for as long as someone’s willing to put her there.)

    HATERS Says:

    TO ALL THE HATERS:

    YOU GUYS HAVER NEVER ONCE POSTED A FACT TO DISCREDIT HER. ALL YOU DO IS WHINE WITH YOUR SAME WEIGHTLESS COMMENTS.

    SHE’S ALWAYS BEEN A LADY, NEVER PLAYED HERSELF WITH MEN, DRUGS, CROTCH FLASHING, ETC.

    @ UM – VERY WELL SAID. NAME ONE FEMALE PERFORMER TODAY THAT’S TOUCHING THAT STAGE “LIVE” THE WAY SHE TOUCHES DOWN. IT’S A WRAP!!!!

    BEYONCE IS THE QUEEN AND BLUEPRINT FOR THIS MUSIC GAME.

    SHE’S BEEN SQUASHING EVERYONE FOR OVER 12 YEARS.

    BLACK, WHITE, INDIAN, ASIAN, EVERY NEW ARTIST THAT HAS COME OUT SINCE SHE’S COME OUT HAS BEEN TOLD TO COPY HER LOOK AND MUSIC.

    GO KICK ROCK WITH OPENED TOED SHOES BECAUSE SHE AND WE FANS AREN’T GOING AAAANNNNNYYYYYYWWWWWHHHEEERRRREEEEE!!!!!!!!

    POW!
