Beyonce Covers 'Essence' July 2011

Beyonce Covers 'Essence' July 2011

Beyonce looks picture perfect on the cover of Essence‘s July issue.

The 29-year-old penned her very first cover story, “Eat, Play, Love,” opening up about how a nine-month break helped inspire her creativity.

Here’s what she shared with the mag: “I had talked about taking a vacation before, but always ended up in the studio after two weeks, so no one believed me. This time, though, I was serious. I was going to give myself a year to do the things I never get to do.”

“Simple things like play with my nephew, pick him up from school, visit museums, go to concerts, see some Broadway shows, learn to cook a meal and spend time with my husband … Yes, I needed some relaxation, but I wanted inspiration too, from regular everyday things,” she added.

    Who cares what her hair color is. Blond looks better on darker skin anyway.

    She is a great artist….BUT…she look like a robot since few times.

    There is no good music anymore, she copycat a lot of old songs, and a lot of other’s choregraphies…

    It’s like a kind of athlete who wants to go as fast as possible, there’s no emotion no more for a long time.

    She have that crazy chance to have a great voice.

    Sometimes, just singing a good song in front of an audience, just simply can be much more amazing then all that crazy agitation, and big fat useless rhythm who’s supposed to be music.
