I kind of love how Beyonce’s NEW FACE is on every magazine cover over the past few months. I know she’s promoting her album, but to me, it just feels like Bey is completely delusional about how different she looks and she thinks that every time she does a photo shoot, people will be like, “Damn, she looks great!” When we’re really like, “OMFG, WTF did Bey do to her once-pretty face?!? SHE LOOKS LIKE A CAT.” It’s a nose job, but there’s something else in the mix that’s messing her up. Anyway, here’s Bey’s photo shoot for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. She looks like a Kardashian. There are some excerpts from the interview too:
With just a month before her big 3-0, Beyonce has been reflecting on an amazing decade. And as she poses in a stunning new photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar UK magazine, she admits performing in Egypt just two months before the country’s uprising started was a memorable experience.
The pop star admitted she found it incredibly moving to see Egyptian women wearing burkas singing along to her female empowerment song Irreplaceable – while many of their male partners standing nearby were obviously unamused.
Despite protests from ultra-conservative Islamic groups ahead of the gig who did not approve of her risqué outfits and booty-shaking dance moves, the American singer’s concert at Port Ghalib on the Red Sea was a roaring success.
She tells the September issue of the magazine: ‘There were a lot of women in the audience in burkas. They were singing along to Irreplaceable – it was amazing! Some of the men got really upset! They were like to their women, “We have to get you out of here!”….I guess some of them (men) do get annoyed. But I never want to do “the banner thing”.’
Although many women today steer away from the word ‘feminist’, the Texan insists she’s always been one, although she believes the movement needs a new name.
She explained: ‘I don’t really feel that it’s necessary to define it. It’s just something that’s kind of natural for me, and I feel like…you know…it’s, like, what I live for. I need to find a catchy new word for feminism, right? Like Bootylicious.’
In fact, Beyonce is such a feminist, she admits she finds it strange to see females who only socialise with males.
She said: ‘I’m afraid when women never hang around with other women. That’s a little scary to me – why is that?’
And when it comes to women she admires, Beyonce admits her close friend Gwyneth Paltrow is her role model.
She admitted: ‘She pushes her boundaries all the time. You go to her house and she makes you feel like you never want to go home. She is what I strive to be one day.’
But it appears Paltrow is just as appreciative of her friend, telling the magazine how much she respects Beyonce. She said: ‘She is what it means to be a superstar. No one else can sing and dance like that, while having humour and genuine bursting sweetness. She has her own recipe for it… I wanted my own character (in Country Strong), to have some of that mega-wattage. So I studied B. She was my homework.’
The former Destiny’s Child singer is now preparing to turn 30 on September 4 – marking the end of her very busy 20s. During her 20s, she launched her solo career and became a married woman when she tied the knot with rapper Jay-Z, 41, three years ago.
Now looking forward to her 30s, Beyonce said: ‘This is such a pivotal moment in my life! I’m transitioning as a woman, and I’m finally able to express myself as I am.’

Haha, bitch can’t even remember her 20s, they were so long ago. As for the friendship between Dame Gwyneth and Beyonce… this is one of the first times I’ve really heard Bey talk about Goop in such glowing terms in a formal interview. Usually Goop is the one forcing the relationship, talking about Beyonce constantly. The whole thing makes me feel bad for Madonna. Poor Gristle, tossed aside for new tweaked meat by a goopy, narcissistic twit obsessed with being cool and young. And poor Beyonce! She has to hang out with Goop. It’s all so sad.
