The queen of the illuminati, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter
, covers the February issue of GQ
magazine, and Hollywood Tattle Tale
has the editorial photos of the gorgeous mother and wife.
Knowles is the headlining performer for the 2013 Super Bowl, so it was only right that her photo shoot have a football theme.
During her interview the R&B diva announced that her new album will consist of collaborations with Pharrell Williams
and Justin Timberlake.
I've been working with Pharrell Williams, 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.
But I'm hesitant of how truthful her word is since it was recently revealed that she's working on a track called Ratchet
, with Lady Gaga
After receiving tons of backlash from fans about taking credit for the lyrics of her smash hit, Irreplaceable
, Beyoncé finally confessed that she doesn't in fact write all of her lyrics.
I'd used t 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.
Thanks to her perfectionist ways, Beyoncé is known for being one of the best performers of her time.
I love my job, but it's more than that. Because before I gave birth, it was the only time in my life, all throughout my life, that I was lost" She means this in a good way: When her brain turns off, it is, frankly, a relief. After drilling herself, repeating every move so many times, locking them in, she can then afford not to think. "It's like a blackout. When I'm onstage, I don't know what the crap happens. I'm gone."
This issue of GQ
hits newsstands later this month.
