Beyoncé is burning up on the cover of the February 2013 issue of ‘GQ’ magazine where she rocks a blue cropped T-shirt jersey that lets her boobs peak out a bit and red leopard panties with zipper pockets.
Crowned one of the ‘Sexiest Woman Of The 21st Century,” she strikes some sexy poses for famed fashion photographer Terry Richardson in pieces from: Azzedine Alaïa, Dolce & Gabbana, Lorraine Schwartz, Manon, Tom Ford, Versace, Gucci, Agent Provocateur, American Apparel, Moscot, Louis Vuitton, Eddie Borgo, Jennifer Fisher, Topshop and Nike.
On the inside pages, she opens up about her work ethic, Super Bowl performance and influence among other things.
‘GQ’ February 2013 hits newsstands on January 15th.
Here’s what Beyoncé had to say:
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.”
