Beyonce says she uses her music to inspire women to be sexually confident.


Beyonce covers the latest issue of OUT Magazine, and on the cover, the singer channels Marilyn Monroe. Probably on purpose, considering she talked about sex quite a bit in the interview.

How her latest album is about empowering women with their sexuality:

I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.

[It was] much freer than anything I’d done in the past. We really just tried to trust our instincts, embrace the moment, and keep it fun.” As an illustration she singled out the video for “Drunk in Love,” a fan favorite. “We were in Miami for Jay’s concert, and it was just the two of us, on the beach, amazing weather, and one outfit! It’s beautiful in its simplicity. If you want something to feel real and urgent, you can’t overthink it.

Photos: Beyonce brought the stripper pole to her Mrs. Carter World Tour


Beyonce is still on the road as part of her international Mrs. Carter world tour. Currently in the UK, she’s pulling out all the stops to dazzle the audience, and her heightened sexiness fits in well with the material on her new album, that’s for sure!

While in Manchester last week, Bey decided to bust out the stripper pole and show off her finest moves. Of course the photos had to be posted online, too! After all, if it’s not Instagrammed, did it really happen? Not that we’re complaining…

Beyonce says she was 200 pounds when she gave birth to Blue Ivy

Beyonce Celebrates The Release Of Her Self-Titled Visual Album 'Beyonce'

Beyonce has released a new video to promote her new surprise album. In the monologue, she talks abou what it took to get her body back after giving birth to Blue Ivy. She says that she hit 195 before giving birth, and that since then she’s lost 65 pounds. I’m not sure I’m buying the fact that she was pushing 200 pounds. She never looked that big to me. Maybe I don’t buy that she’s only 130 now. She seems so big…. but that could be because she’s so tall. Not big as in fat-big, just big. (And for the record, I have always thought her body was AMAZING.)

It’s been almost two years since Beyonce welcomed daughter Blue Ivy with husband Jay Z, and in that time, the pop diva has certainly been busy. Not only did she embark on a massive sold-out world tour, light up the Super Bowl halftime show, and drop a record-breaking fifth studio album without any promotion, but Queen Bey also shed 65 pounds of pregnancy weight. And she is ready to show it.

In her fourth YouTube mini-documentary (entitled “Liberation”) since her Dec. 13 iTunes release, Beyonce opens up about embracing her body in her new self-titled visual album.

“I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body,” she said. “I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back. I know that there’s so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth. You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself. I don’t have any shame about being sexual. I’m not embarrassed about it, and I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have.” CONTINUE READING – VIDEO AFTER THE JUMP… (more…)
