Beyonce Covers 'W' July 2011

Beyonce Covers 'W' July 2011

Beyonce pairs a Louis Vuitton outfit with a Givenchy silk satin bra on the cover of W magazine’s July 2011 issue, where she shares a dual cover with Christina Aguilera!

Here’s what the 29-year-old entertainer had to share with the magazine:

On deciding on the feel of a video as she sings a song: “When I sing a song, I definitely have the image for the video in my mind. I kind of hear the choreography that will be in the video, and I can see how I’ll look, even before anyone – the record company, the director – has heard the song.”

On wanting to move out of her comfort zone on 4: “I wanted this record to come from a raw place. Playing Etta James in the movie ­Cadillac Records really changed me. It was a darker character, and I realized that if anything is too comfortable, I want to run from it. It’s no fun being safe.”

FYI: Bey finished her cover look with a pair of Lorraine Schwartz earrings and a David Yurman ring.

    I want to say though that even though I love the songs on the Album excluding Run the World. I feel as if Jay-Z may have set Beyonce up by ill-advising her so she won’t have Another Great Album and would come home, take a break and have his Babies!

    I think Jay planned this one and Beyonce doesn’t even know it!
