I feel like, at some point in the past few years, someone less-talented and more annoying has replaced the Beyonce we all grew up with. I honestly don’t even know who this person is anymore. Maybe that’s the point. Maybe we’re supposed to be guessing. Or maybe Mathew Knowles killed both his daughters and absorbed their souls thus becoming them when he got fired. That last one is how I’m choosing to interpret this. Whatever in the Claire’s body glitter hell happened to Beyonce covers FLAUNT Magazine’s new issue. The takeaway from which is I’m pretty sure ‘Beyonce’ got implants since giving birth, not that that’s a bad thing, and the lizard hands and the farting glitter isn’t distracting from that.
- On criticism she’s received for working with Pepsi: ‘Pepsi is a brand I’ve grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn’t encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance. When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it’s great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It’s all about choices.’
- On keeping her life private: ‘I have chosen to keep certain aspects of my life private. But I also love sharing what makes me happy, especially through photography.’
- On her fans helping with charity: ‘They are engaged in making a difference. We have collected tons of donations that will go towards creating jobs and helping people get jobs. That’s something I want to celebrate. For Chime for Change we raised awareness and over $4 million in one day for equal rights for girls everywhere. So many people at that concert were young. They are more socially responsible than they get credit for.’
