Beyonce Covers 'Vogue' March 2013

Beyonce Covers 'Vogue' March 2013

Beyonce graces the cover of Vogue‘s March 2013 issue, on newsstands February 19.

Here is what the 31-year-old Grammy-winning singer had to share with the mag:

On giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy: “I felt very maternal around eight months. And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . . . But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. . . . We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”

On her new family life: “I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more. Family has always been important. I’ve always had my mother and my father and my husband. But it’s just… Life is so much more than… It’s not defined by any of this.”

On splitting with her father as her business manager: “My soul has been tarnished… My father taught me so much about being a businesswoman. And I’m understanding him a lot now… A lot of the crazy things he did were necessary.”

Gwyneth Paltrow on her gal pal: “When she is working onstage, she has more power than any woman I’ve ever seen. She would never say it and has never said it, but I feel she knows with every fiber of her being that she is the best in the world at her job.”

    Oh, fer chrissakes, enough about her. So tired of her and her absurd ego. Please go away and take care of your baby, please.

  • Boy

    What a crock of absolute bull. A surrogate had that child, her belly COLLAPSED ON LIVE TELEVISION, and for all those people defending her, and saying, well the dress folded, ok, put some cloth over a basketball, now turn the basketball in any direction you want, will the fabric ever fold?! No, it won’t, because a basketball is hard, and a piece of cloth over it cannot bend the basketball. Same way, a pregnant woman’s stomach is hard, so a piece of cloth can never fold on top of it, and cause the stomach to fold as well. This is RIDICULOUS. And it shows that her story is just bs, because most women are in so much pain, they’re not envisaging a door, and a baby pushing through it, and she’s saying how this dream of hers, lessened the pain, BULLSH*T. She said how she was so mesmerized by this image, she couldn’t think of her own pain. A woman cannot help but think of her own pain. Unless she’s superman, she cannot give birth without some type of pain. God this woman is a narcissistic, histrionic and demented liar. She knows she’s lying, that’s why she keeps talking about this pregnancy, and how she gave birth to convince people. Nobody intelligent is convinced of this BS story.

  • Jennay

    lmaooooo @ what she said about “giving birth” …. who you tryna fool B?

  • Gail

    Now that’s a classy look she should keep.

  • kiki

    Well, at least now she will look a bit classy. If money and years in showbiz cannot teach someone to dress(not like a cheap tramp), perhaps Vogue will..for a photo-shoot only but still, there’s hope.

  • Lisa

    The cover looks nice, but she always have one picture where she is near naked. Another thing, her comments on her father, GP and giving birth seems contrived.

  • J

    The little bit of indifference I had toward this woman went out the window with the fake pregnancy BS. She thinks if she says ‘when I gave birth’ enough times, everyone else can believe it as much as she does. She is so pathetic. Nothing wrong with having surrogate, but walking around with a fake belly for 9 months and then presenting yourself as this every-woman who supposedly has it all is pretty effed up and shows you how absolutely nuts she is. She is disgusting. She gives herself away with these interviews. She ‘felt maternal at 8 months’? When she saw ‘the baby’. Can she sound any more detached? Everyone in the world has seen her boobs and private parts more than her gynencologist and no pregnant belly image? If she had one, she would’ve shown it. And not the Big Mac 2 week pregnant fake image you’re trying to fool people with, Bey!

  • Tilda

    Please Beyonce, everyone knows you used a surrogate mother.

  • Elle

    I prefer this shoot to the GQ but still cant muster up any interest in reading about her life. She just seems so contrived – I am sure the documentary will be more of the same stuff she spews in interviews, just in camera form. Also, why does she speak in phrases? The interviewer is forced to use “…..” to break up her thoughts.

  • irene

    haha and we are supposed to believe she would not get an epidural? I didn’t use to believe she used a surrogate but now…

  • Tiana

    Wow, wow, wow, It is really sad that people can say so much bs about a person and there are plenty of pictures w/ her w/ a pregnant belly you have to be kidding me, she was like 4 months pregnant when that dress debacle happened but people still talks shit about it get over it, she had that child people are so stupid, but any who I think she looks gorgeous class acts say whatever you want to say about Beyonce at least she has class and actual talent unlike some other people. KILL EM BEY

  • Message

    Photoshop is Bey’s best friend. Well, that and the surrogate…

  • Message

    @Tiana: You and I have a different idea of what class is.

  • KATE

    LIAR.

  • CutTheBS

    I will NEVER understand why haters… google celebrities they DONT like!! You guys need a job, or something to keep you busy!! The negativity is getting boring!!
    Bey looks beautiful & very honest interview.
    Unless u were there when Blue was born… I don’t see how u can say whether she gave birth or not!! #shutup

  • CutTheBS

    If QUEEN bey had shown yall blue coming out of her p*ssy in 3D… yall still wouldn’t believe it!!
    She has nothing to prove!!!

  • Irreversible

    Only a woman who’s never given birth could say that…, “I couldn’t think about my own pain”, what a bullshit. She should shut up about it already, give all the women who gave birth some respect.

  • Tiana

    @Message: I know what class is and Beyonce has class what do she ever do not to get that title um let me see nude pics NO, DUI NO, going around acting like a dumb ass NO, this woman worked hard to get where she is today your opinion is your opinion get that understand that and send it to your mail address but you cannot sit there and think this woman isn’t classy give a person credit when its due that’s all what i’m saying.

  • ok

    she shaved her nose. the magazine lightened her skin tone, she’s got image problem…I think of Michael Jackson, the more power they obtain the more they want to physically morph into a caucasian. ..I am beginning to think that baby was via a surrogate and most likely it’s a mixed race baby.

  • KATE

    @Irreversible:
    Oh YES….U Speak the truth unlike BK
    She proves with that statement, that she never gave birth.
    She’s a liar.

  • KATE

    @CutTheBS:
    She’s a liar. Get over it.

  • lol

    @ok:

    the magazine lightened her tone? are you an idiot? click the video…her skin is the exact same color as it is in motion.

    she’s a light skinned woman. period. dumbass.

  • inmomar

    she is beautiful talented – end of story

  • me

    I REALLY can’t handle all that self-esteem talk from her…..this is a VOGUE article?!!!!

    Anna is really letting that magazine go downhill.

    there was nothing else to talk about???!!!!!!!!!!

    The Gywneth comment was TOTALLY ridic.

    ugh.

  • me

    Oh and I was TRYING to be objective here.

    The Gywneth comment was so un-necessary…both of them are totally acting STRANGE as of late!!

    nobody questioned her so-called talent or fabulousness…so why all the try hard, OVER talking?

    something is off…

  • nanans

    OMG, how can someone lie about being pregnant and be a huge celebrity like BEYONCE????

    People who is saying that now that she is said that she gave birth naturlly , she must be lying, well i am 23 year old women and i gave gave birth whitout any epidural etc.. hell model Giselle EVEN had waterbirth among others celebs…U can say she a liar, bleaches her skin, fat or whatever, she is BEYONCE and well respectet from rock, to country from hip-hop to pop..every celeb love couse she very talented and she still have over 350 mill dollars and with her husbind combined allmost 1 billion dollars
    and U HATERS HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT HAHAHAHHAHAH LMAO

  • Toni

    The top on the cover reminds me of the dress she was seen in recently, and I just loved that look. Nice to see it again.

    And its nice to be reflective and see what her dad’s done, and understand it. I admire that quality in a person.

  • Toni

    @J: There have been pictures of her pregnant belly exposed, not covered by any fabric. She was on a beach or something.

  • ladyb

    I don’t hate her…it is the overhype by the media and her management team I hate. I really don’t think she is as good as people make it out to be. I think the only reason she’s up there is because she is lucky to have no competition. When Mariah Carey was on top, she had Whitney Houston and Celine Dion to challenge her.

  • me

    @nanans:

    the money doesn’t really mean anything in the long run….I don’t think people are thinking or caring about their wealth.

  • So Swedish

    This may be true, and of course B has the right to say what she wants.

    The pain part just makes me feel a bit sad. I’ve heard other female celebrities talk about their deliveries, how they didn’t need pain killers like epidural. That they did it all au natural, because they “had such a strong spiritual bond with the unborn so they didn’t even notice the pain” or something like it.
    Or they didn’t want medication for the babys sake, so they endured. No problem!

    Regular women listen to this and feel bad. Because they had so much pain they wanted to die, and they begged the doctor to give them something, anything!!
    It’s hard to connect spirituality when you think you are going to split in half any second.
    Think of all the women with 15hr or more childbirths. Kinda hard to keep your spirit up after nearly a whole day and night of contractions.

    I’ve talked with lots of women who said: I guess you could say it’s a positive pain because you know something good will come out of it. But the pain… You can’t think of nothing else.

    If Beyonces delivery was like stated I am happy for her. Women deserve as positive delivery as it can get.

    I hope it’s true, because if women feel they have to compete against each other even when it comes to pregnancies and childbirths then it’s just awful.

  • J

    @Toni:
    Are you talking about that picture in the white bikini early in the ‘pregnancy’ (was she in Croatia or something like that?) when she looked like she just had a big meal? Not that one. That pic didn’t prove anything. There was nothing pregnant-looking about her in that pic. And if she wanted to shut all the naysayers up, she had at least 3 good months (from 6 months on) to choose from where she could’ve shown a real pregnant belly. NOT those caftan covered pictures that she tried to pass off. LOL. This chic is boob showing, crotch flashing all the time, and all of a sudden she was modest with her ‘pregnancy’? LOL. If she had it, she would show it. Even that trash Kim Kardashian looks more pregnant now than Beyonce ever did.

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    just gorgeous!

  • wtf

    lmao cutthebs always comes on the beyonce posts and tries to ‘defend’ her and then likes her own posts LOL. Trying to tell people to get a life when all you do is comment on other peoples comments..ironic.

  • wtf

    by the way..shes only 31? wtf? pretty young for her career to be failing.

  • CutTheBS

    @wtf: Hmmm who r u?…. The fact that u know what post I comment on, on a daily basis… says more about u than anything!! #stalker
    Oh & how can I like my own post more than 1 time?? :-/ #dumbass

  • http://@dzejlana10 JayLoo

    if she be pregnant,why she doesn’t take photos with your naked baby bump,like britney,christina,mariah….

  • uh huh

    @nanans: Your grammar is horrific.

  • Jessica

    @nanans: She learned that to KEEP A HUSBAND HAPPY you need to pleasure him in the Bedroom with Romantic Toys from AthenaToysdotcom

  • nolano

    31 year-old? Hahahahaha She’s celebrated her 30th birthday for 5 years.

  • kimmie

    She looks boring. Beyonce proud of African American women who performed at Super Bowl and yet she’s trying so hard to hide her real identity. Can’t t she show her afro hair, real skin color?

  • Reba

    They photoshopped the heck out of her nose!

  • freya

    @Boy:

    “. But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions,”

    That statement alone Boy was the proof that your right. I also gave birth when your in labor pains you can’t think of anything nor feel anything but excruciating pain hoping that this will be over. Beyonce besides her music is a fake and a phony no wonder she hates Kim Kardashian because no one loves a competition.

  • Lucy

    Too photoshopped.

  • Toni

    @J: No I meant this: http://www.popsugar.com/Pregnant-Beyonce-Knowles-Baby-Bump-Bikini-Pictures-18995310

    That doesnt look like a big dinner to me..

  • Toni

    @Toni: But yeah white bikini and croatia…. but it looks pregnant to me :/

  • http://goodlook ConnyR

    King Bey is beautiful and so is her family. Lots of respect to Mathew and Tina they did a great job with their daughters. I wish I was as tight to my family the way the Knowles are. Friends will deceive you, but family has your back. Love the hustler spirit in Bey she keeps it rolling even the with unnecesary shade she gets.

  • butterfly

    @Toni She definitely looks pregnant to me.

  • butterfly

    @Toni: She definitely looks pregnant in the pictures

  • Dev

    Is there a reason everyone is so harsh to her on here? Regardless of whether her baby was fakes (Although, if you look at other views of the video of her when it supposedly ‘caved in’, you would see that there are no straps in sight capable of holding up a baby bump) she is still a mother. She made her way into the spotlight and regardless of controversy or her ‘pride’, when it comes down to it she still has a voice which is hard to compare to, and that’s the reason she’s famous. People need to just butt out of people’s personal lives until they actually know things for sure.
