Beyonce Covers 'Complex' August/September 2011

Beyonce Covers 'Complex' August/September 2011

Beyonce is super fierce on the cover of Complex magazine’s August/September 2011 issue.

The cover features the 29-year-old entertainer with the lyrics to her single “Run The World (Girls)” surrounding her! Here’s what Bey had to share:

On striving to make music that’s interesting for everyone: “I’ve found that with hit records the melody and lyrics come together [naturally]. I usually know from the hook if the song is something that transcends language, race, and genre, and if it’s something that affects pop culture. It’s something I can visualize people singing in stadiums all over the world. But my favorite songs on my albums are usually not my singles.”

On dealing with down days: “Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. People who complain really get on my nerves. When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”

On what she’d like her legacy to be: “I just want my legacy to be great music. Someone who was a risk taker and someone who had songs that struck conversation and emotion.”

    She really love herself, her legacy is not decided my her but by public and music industry and it probably wont be what you think or want it to be

    She shouldn’t pose like that ever again. She does that all the time to accentuate her hips, but really shouldnt because it only shows that she needs to loose weight in her vag!

    Well, not everyone who complains has buckets of money to bribe people to make things go her way…

    Sidenote: I’m not dumping on how “rich” she is; just criticizing her lack of understanding for other people’s situations. She doesn’t have to care, but she should at least shut her trap.

    Huh? Says:

    She has failed that legacy. Sugary pop music is not Mozart or Billie Holiday. Cut it out B. You are a lucky average.

    She learned the word transcends. Oooh, she is so smart.

    OMG is this chick serious?? She can’t write a song. Other people do the work and she puts her name on it for credit. I mean this is the girl who “wrote” Silent Night!! Isn’t that her “legacy” – she wrote a Christmas song that someone had already written?

    The queen of trashy. How unfortunate that we can take the girl out of the trailer park, but can’t take the trailer park out of the girl.

    Fiona Says:

    I used to respect her a lot as an entertainer, but I find she’s become so full of herself. I mean, calling herself King B. Girl, please. She needs a slice of humble pie and a reality check.

    Paul Says:

    Stop Hating on my mother she is the queen ! & What she meant by people complaining is that where does complaining about the situation gets yu . you should try to figure out the issue instead of wasting time crying about it.
