Here’s a few highlights from her cover story:

“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,” she says. “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 how her career compares to a professional athlete’s

“One of the reasons I connect to the Super Bowl is that I approach my shows like an athlete,” she says now. “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 how performing gives her life
“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.” 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 am gone.”

Talking to herself during a revealing video clip

“Stop pretending that I have it all together.  If I’m scared, be scared, allow it, release it, move on. I think I need to go listen to ‘Make Love to Me’ and make love to my husband.”

Solange on her sister’s perfectionist ways

“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 the inequalities of money between men and women

“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 channeling anger to perform
“I used to like when people made me mad, “I’m like, ‘Please piss me off before the performance.’ I used to use everything.”

Beyonce Covers GQ Magazine

Guess who’s back?

The year 2013 definitely belongs to Beyonce. Not only did she snag the cover of the February issue of men’s GQ magazine, her adorable angel Blue Ivy just turned 1, she’ll be singing the national anthem at the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, she’s set to perform during the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show, has an album in the works and many more.

beyBeyonce paraded her killer curves in a leopard print underwear and a cropped baseball tee for the racy cover. She may have welcomed Blue Ivy only a year ago but she is proving to be hotter than ever!

Displaying not even the merest hint of a mum tum, the superstar completed her cover girl look with a touch of bling in the form of a chunky gold necklace and a dangling navel adornment.

Positively smouldering as she pulled her most seductive post towards the camera, Beyonce ran her hands through her hair, which fell in loose, tumbling waves around her shoulders.

“Luxury Sweet Candy”

I just came across a superb Nigerian label desiginer Iconic Invanity who just launched a candy-themed Spring/Summer 2013 collection  Luxury Sweet Candy”. The collection is full of vibrant colors;from sorbets and sherbet palettes to every hue you can think of from a candy store-thus the name.

Checkout the collection below………………….

Who Rocked It? Porsha vs Jennifer

The fit of this Victoria Beckham dress is so identical on these two fashionistas, we almost didn’t notice they were wearing different shoes!!!!! Jennifer Hudson went for black booties while the newest addition to the Real Housewives of Atlanta Porsha Stewart took the red route and rocked some sparkly Louboutins.

DesktopThere’s so much similarities here from the curly hair to the body type, to the single bracelets, so you be the judge…….

Trendy or Tacky?

Ladies of the ratchet show Love & Hip hop are taking fashion to a whole new level (not in a good way).

They put up such a show at the premiere party of Love & Hip hop season 3 red carpet, leaving nothing to the imagination.

Did I mention that it’s WINTER time?

0Erica Mena took sheer to a ratchet level, covering only the bare essentials. I’m surprised she was able to walk,pose and sit without a wardrobe malfunction.

2Joe Budden’s new girlfriend Kaylin Garcia must have left the house in a hurry forgetting to wear either the bra or top she had intended to wear with this ensemble. #coveringface

1Joe Budden’s ex-girlfriend Tahiry Jose must have received the same memo…the dress is backless too.

Anyway, “they” say any publicity is good publicity…..not that I agree with “them”!
