Beyonce's Full GQ Magazine Spread!

2013 seems like the year for Beyonce! Apart from her upcoming Super Bowl performance, multi million Pepsi deal, Beyonce has also nabbed a few magazine covers including GQ. Read more to see the sizzling hot photos and her interview.









Beyonce reflects on her path to stardom
“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,” says the Super Bowl Halftime Performer “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.”
She says, “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,” explains Beyonce. “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.”



Beyonce on Performing
“I love my job, but it’s more than that: I need it,” she says. “Because before I gave birth, it was the only time in my life, all throughout my life, that I was lost.”
She adds, ”It’s like a blackout. When I’m onstage, I don’t know what the crap happens. I am gone.”
Beyond being GQ’s “hottest woman of the past thirteen years,” Beyonce is an enormously successful entertainer who seems to know her place in the showbiz hierarchy.
“I now know that, yes, I am powerful,” she says. “I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.”
Solange on her sister Solange
"I have very, very early-on memories of her rehearsing on her own in her room. I specifically remember her taking a line out of a song or a routine and just doing it over and over and over again until it was perfect and it was strong. At age 10, when everybody else was ready to say, 'Okay, I'm tired, let's take a break,' she wanted to continue—to ace it and overcome it."



Beyonce on equality
"You know, equality is a myth, and for some reason, everyone accepts the fact that women don't make as much money as men do. I don't understand that. Why do we have to take a backseat?" she says in her film, which begins with her 2011 decision to sever her business relationship with her father. "I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let's face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what's sexy. And men define what's feminine. It's ridiculous."
On her collaborators:
"I've been working with Pharrell and Timbaland and Justin Timberlake and Dream. We all started in the '90s, when R&B was the most important genre, and we all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us."

On songwriting:
"I used to start with lyrics and then I'd find tracks—often it was something I had in my head, and it just so happened to go with the melody. Now I write with other writers. It starts with the title or the concept of what I'm trying to say, and then I'll go into the booth and sing my idea. Then we work together to layer on."
