Beyonce: 'GQ' Interview & Inside Image Revealed!

Beyonce: 'GQ' Interview & Inside Image Revealed!

Beyonce shows off her amazing figure in this new shot from GQ‘s February 2012 issue, on newsstands January 15.

Here is what the 31-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On her work ethic: “I worked so hard during my childhood to meet this goal: By the time I was 30 years old, I could do what I want. I’ve reached that. I feel very fortunate to be in that position. But I’ve sacrificed a lot of things, and I’ve worked harder than probably anyone I know, at least in the music industry. So I just have to remind myself that I deserve it.”

On her upcoming performance at the Super Bowl: “One of the reasons I connect to the Super Bowl is that I approach my shows like an athlete. You know how they sit down and watch whoever they’re going to play and study themselves? That’s how I treat this. I watch my performances, and I wish I could just enjoy them, but I see the light that was late. I see, ‘Oh God, that hair did not work.’ Or ‘I should never do that again.’ I try to perfect myself. I want to grow, and I’m always eager for new information.”

On her influence: “I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.”

On loving her work: “I love my job, but it’s more than that: I need it. Because before I gave birth, it was the only time in my life, all throughout my life, that I was lost.”

    blah blah…same old, same old…talking about how great she is

  • DB

    I don’t think either of those pictures are flattering or attractive at all really.

    I’ve seen pics of her looking fantastic – so it’s not the lady – it’s perhaps the poses and the outfits and the camera just not all working together.

    An isolated “Bad Hair Day” sort of vibe, you know?

  • NYC chck

    wow, not very humble. she’s posing like she’s sucking her stomach in.

    Trash

  • Westwood

    Did she just say “powerful”? The last I checked no one cared about her album and singles.

  • melissa B

    “I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.”……Wow. Oh Beyonce. Tisk tisk.

  • melissa B

    @Westwood: Thank you!!

  • Jovi92

    “I love my job, but it’s more than that: I need it. Because before I gave birth, it was the only time in my life, all throughout my life, that I was lost.”

    ok, i didn’t quite understand this part. maybe it’s because english it’s not my language ihih
    is she saying that she feel lost without her job?
    if it’s that, it’s very sad. you gave birth to a child and complain about the fact that you couldn’t work during the pregnancy…

  • John

    She’s posing like she’s gonna take a sh$¨¨*t ! And wow how humble is she ?

  • Khloe

    Powerful? Her album 4 was a commercial flop though. And her other albums didn’t sell more than 8 million each with re-releases and everything. Yet artists like Adele, Shania, Britney, Mariah or Madonna had albums which sold more than 20 million+, THEY are powerful. Bey you’re just as “powerful” as Katy Perry, honey bunny.

  • rollmyeyes

    I’ve worked harder than probably anyone I know, <<<<< Does she even know what hard work is? to perform at every event which is possible, is not HARD work!!!!!!

  • yesBEY

    Oh wow , you all seem upset– probably at the fact that all of these white trash, pop music and movie stars meet a fate that includes cocaine-singed noses, needle-marked arms, and many nights slumped over the commode. It took Beyonce 31 years to say that she deserves her success because of how hard she’s worked. That is the epitome of humility. And to say that she’s not allowed to miss working–something she’s done since she was 10 years old– is ridiculous. The only people who would surmise that Bey doesn’t love her child and appreciate motherhood, are the ones who know only hatred. Finally, her body is amazing. I’d venture to say every woman would flash a little underboob if they looked like that one year after giving birth.

  • sho

    WTF is this? she became porno star? :D

  • rachel

    ass woman with a tiny brain. beyonce has no clue about politics. jayz is only reason you are revelant dumb ass

  • hrick92

    People are so afraid of seeing a woman flattering herself. Yes, she’s allowed to be confident about herself and say she’s powerful, because at the end of the day, she is. I’ve never seen Madonna being humble either, and the world accept she’s the Queen of Pop. These ladies are conscious of what they achieved through the years and do not pretend that they didn’t. After all, it’s not many people who got sign a $50 million deal.

  • yesBEY

    Where are the complaints about Donald Trump, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, et al., lacking humility? Women aren’t allowed to be sexy, but men are free to be perverts. Women aren’t allowed to be confidant, but men can act conceited. Women aren’t allowed to own their power, but men are encouraged to usurp theirs from others. It’s TWENTY THIRTEEN, folks. Get a grip . . .

  • keira

    wtf? i see shes very down to earth (irony)

  • Chloe

    I don’t like her for things like this

  • hm

    that pose is NOT flattering – it looks like she’s about to take a dump =/

  • yesBEY

    Beyonce has never claimed to be an intellect or an expert on politics or policy. But guess what. She’s quite obviously business savvy, and she gets to vote for a president like every other registered voter in this country. America was built on hate, and we Americans sure like to stick to our fukking roots, huh?

  • Babi

    I don’t understand why she’s want to be white or blonde. She’s black!!!

  • Babi

    I don’t understand why she’s want to be white or blonde. She’s black!!!

  • eliose

    this feels more like rihanna than beyonce.. but i guess GQ covers (sort of) have the same feel..
    i lost a lot of respect for her when she wouldn’t allow the other mothers to see their new born babies in the hospital.. funny how that ‘rumour’ went away though

  • Mel

    @yesBEY: “white trash, pop music and movie stars” – a little unnecessary don’t you think? If someone isn’t a fan of Beyonce it shouldn’t become about color?

  • Lord

    wait what happened to the up and down thumbs/arrows???

  • jA

    Yes, Beyonce you are “powerful” and you deserve all the wonderful life has to offer…yes yes yes you are ! yes yes yes you deserve. yes yes yes I AM SO SICK OF HEARING HOW GREAT YOU ARE!

  • an opinion

    Only on Just Jared is Jennifer Aniston consider beautiful and talented but Beyonce is consider the opposite. Stop being jealous of Beyonce and not feeling sorry for Aniston.

  • BettyBoo

    I love Beyonce’s music, but she always look like she’s trying way to hard to be sexy when taking photos and even in her performances and the thing is she doesn’t have to try that hard. I think Beyonce is beautiful but her when i see pictures like these it ends up looking over done, why can she just make it look natural and effortless. Am I the only that thinks that?

  • um

    @an opinion: YOU must be new.. i’ve rarely (if ever) seen a positive comment about jennifer aniston on this site. calm down. beyonce is beautiful but she’s as deep as a kiddie pool..

    and im glad the annoying thumbs up/down sh*t is gone (but it happens when there’s an award show – probably due to traffic on the site)

  • Willa

    The pose on the cover is more than unflattering, it’s weird. And it’s been photoshopped. In any way, when someone is in that pose, and with thighs like hers, has a gap between one’s legs. Just saying…

  • an

    @Lord: yeah I know , I miss them !

  • sbk

    Kudos to her for working so hard. I just don’t get this need to constantly pose in such a provocative manner. How can one be taken seriously when looking that? Sure, she is an attractive woman, but why this need to objectify herself. If she was not a well-known singer/actress, these pictures would be relegated to a porn site. I would be curious to see her daughter’s reaction to these pictures.

  • fenny

    @Mandy:

    If you pose like this (the cover), how would you see your bodyguard, your children’s teacher, Obama, etc? Would you show this picture to your children or young fans?

  • mimi

    A truly powerful and confident woman doesn’t have to pose for half naked awkwardly posed photos to prove her value. It’s really degrading.

    Yeah, where are the thumbs up/down buttons?

  • Michael Rowland

    @yesBEY:

    You mean like crack whore Whitney Houston?

  • Make it go away

    Am I the only one who can’t stand this chick? Egomaniac on the loose sporting fake hair and photoshopped existence.

  • Make it go away

    Please bring back the thumbs up/down buttons!!!!

  • kiki

    photoshop:((((

  • an opinion

    @um: No you must be knew to Just Jared.

  • um

    @an opinion: it’s *new and go read a J.A thread, it’s mostly people calling her ugly

  • mrst

    Can’t wait for the Superbowl..Go Bey…=)

  • hello777

    whats with the whore photo? get it together beyonce.

  • http://pearlsandparis.wordpress.com SM

    she is AMAZING!

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    so sexy!

  • Rose1987389!!!

    @mimi: …and that’s the truth of the whole matter…enough said!!!

  • BIRD BRAIN BEYONCE

    Beyonce is dumb as a box of rocks. She did not even graduate from highschool. She can’t talk without sounding stupid. She is a BIRD BRAIN. Why did Aaliyah have to die and we are stuck with this CLASSLESS tramp. Remember no one liked Beyonce until Aaliyah died. People hated Beyonce. If Beyonce was a dark skin black lady, she would have not been so hyped up but she is a light skin black with fake blonde hair trying to be white. GO AWAY BIRD BRAIN.

  • Rachel

    @BIRD BRAIN BEYONCE: Were you 4 when Beyonce and Destiny’s Child were ruling the R%B world back in 1999-2002? Beyonce was more famous, loved and successful than Aaliyah. Why did Destiny’s Child have huge number 1 hits in those days? Why were people buying their albums? No one cared about Aaliyah until she died in that tragic plane crash. She never sold albums until she died. Black women come in different shades and Beyonce is light skinned.. Get over it and YOU GO AWAY.

  • Holly

    @BIRD BRAIN BEYONCE: Erm didn’t Aaliyah sleep with R.Kelly when she was only 15? That’s classy–rolls eyes
