GQ declares Beyonce ‘The Sexiest Woman of the 21st Century’: ugh or amazing?

Beyonce is the cover girl for GQ’s February issue, also known as the nonsensical “Hottest Women of the 21st Century” Issue. For real? We’re only at 2013 and we’re already ranking the hot girls of the century? Who made the hottest girls of the 20th century? I hope Eleanor Roosevelt made that list! She was HOT. Anyway, Beyonce’s cover is quite a lot of HIPS and under-boob (what is that called?) and belly jewelry. She looks good, don’t get me wrong. She looks very sexy. Are we still going to be talking about how sexy she is in 2099 though?

Meanwhile, did you hear that Beyonce is once again taking center stage at Pres. Obama’s inaugural? In January 2009, for Obama’s first inaugural, Beyonce was given the task of singing “At Last” for Pres. Obama and Michelle’s first dance of the evening. This time, Beyonce actually gets to be on stage for the actual inauguration, I think:

After supporting him throughout his campaign, Beyonce will perform the National Anthem at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration. The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced Wednesday, Jan. 9 the three special musical guests who will take the stage at the 57th Presidential Inauguration.

Beyonce is set to sing the National Anthem, Kelly Clarkson will perform “My Country Tis of Thee” and James Taylor will sing “American the Beautiful.”

Obama’s inauguration will be held on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

“Vice President Biden and I are honored to have these wonderfully talented musical artists perform at the Inaugural ceremony,” Obama, 51, said in a statement. “Their music is often at the heart of the American story and speaks to folks across the country.”

Beyonce, 31, and Taylor, 64, both had the honor of performing at Obama’s first inauguration in 2009. Jay-Z’s wife also performed a cover of Etta James’ “At Last” for Obama’s first dance with First Lady Michelle Obama during the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball.

[From Us Weekly]

I’m kind of fine with that list. James Taylor is a national treasure, and Beyonce will do the National Anthem justice. Kelly Clarkson was a bit of a “WTF?” moment, but then I realized that the president’s daughters are probably fans, and Kelly is probably seen as a “good pop star” in the Obama household. Huh… I wonder if Jay-Z gets invited to sit with the inaugural party because his wife is performing?

Last thing – Jay-Z posted this photo of Blue Ivy while the family was on vacation. He posted it with the message: “Last day of vacation, playing UNO.”

    Better than Aniston’s Sexiest Woman Of All Time. WTF was that?

    • Steph says:

      Agreed! Plus I’m also with Kaiser, when I saw the cover I said “ugh really?”

    • T.C. says:

      At least she’s sexy photoshop or no photoshop girl’s hot.

      • Hakura says:

        @T.C. – “At least she’s sexy photoshop or no photoshop girl’s hot.

        I don’t mean to come across catty, but unless you somehow know her personally, or physically witnessed the ‘photo-shoot-in-progress-before-editing’…

        Then none of us truly know if she looks especially great in ‘real-life’. Her pictures aren’t just photo-shopped, they’re obviously photo-shopped. They don’t even try to hide the unrealistic outlines & (ab)use of the blend/eraser tool anymore.

        Personally, I have no idea. Maybe she’s still beautiful & has a great body. I just mean we don’t get the opportunity to see her without artistic enhancements.

  2. lucy2 says:

    She’s a beautiful woman, but holy photoshop in the hip/thigh area. If you’re going to declare someone the sexiest, at least put their real body on the cover!

  3. The Wizz says:

    I wish they hadn’t photoshopped her thighs. Big thighs are bloody sexy after all (and I’m being serious)

  4. Amanda says:

    Seriously? I wonder how much she “paid” for that?

  5. Lisa says:

    This cow has Been photoshopped to death, her thighs are 4 times bigger in real life, and that stomach is photoshopped to death, she was never pregnant, but has fat rolls on her stomach, she does not even come close to sexiest alive.
    Look for her to announce pregnancy in October her surrogate is ready or another one

    • elceibeno08 says:

      I wonder the same thing. Why doesn’t beyonce just show her pregnant belly out there. It does seem like she is faking a pregnancy. Could it be possible she is fooling us all TWICE?

    • MW says:

      Not the belly button of a woman who has been pregnant/given birth. I do not care how toned the body becomes after the fact, but you cannot lose that little droop your upper belly button does after you have a baby.

      • Tiffany says:

        Tell that to Jessica Alba. Or Victoria’s Secret models. Or the thousands of other Hollywood women who have been photographed with their bellies showing after pregnancy. NO ONE has their body disrespected the way that some women do to Beyonce.

        The faux-pregnancy conspiracy theorists are so silly. You think they would photoshop thighs, but not the mandatory belly button droop you say all previously pregnant women must have?

      • MW says:

        Tiffany – everyone that I have ever noticed that has had a kid, has just a bit of loose skin above the belly button, which changes its shape, and can’t be exercised off. It is not unsightly. Beyonce’s does not appear that way to me. Maybe they photoshopped a new belly button on in this pic. Maybe they photoshopped her whole body. Maybe she did not actually give birth. I think Beyonce is undoubtedly beautiful, but even Jessica Albas’s, and a few of the Vic’s Secret girls that have had kids, have that little difference now that they are moms. That is all I said.

  6. poppy says:

    that is one ultra-klassy cover.
    seriously, does this mean goop will be there too? how will that work out during her post-holiday “cleanse”?
    and kim, will kim be there?
    these are the important questions along with if the bow hat is going to make the scene again or be replaced by some new whimsical treat of millinery?
    this is the only chance, Murica, to compete with the royal sperm hats of the UK. we only get this chance every four years, while they have multitudinous occasions for hats and fascinators. take no prisoners.

  7. Meow Mix says:

    GQ bought and paid for by Jay Z…

  8. good_as_gold says:

    No. Not enjoying her anymore.
    Beautiful. No doubt.
    But it’s time to give somebody else a go.

  9. Incredulous says:

    That is a strange way of spelling Monica Bellucci.

  10. Tuxedo Cat says:

    Beyonce is beautiful and accomplished and has done more in her life than just get herself a reality show.

    If they had to have such a title, she is definitely the one.

  11. Christina says:

    I’ve said before that I think these ”polls’ are essentially meaningless – unless you see them as lists of which star currently has the hardest-working PR team.

    Anyway, it always makes me laugh when men tell us that they’re oh-so-forgiving about chubby thighs etc, and then a men’s magazine basically puts Beyonce’s head onto another – much thinner – woman’s body. That is NOT her body.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      I totally agree, the top of the polls is always whoever happens to be flavour of the month at the time, a prime example being when Tulisa won FHM sexiest woman, I laughed for days about that.

      Photo-shopping is hilarious at the best of times, but that is not B’s body, no way, no how.

      • Christina says:

        Yup. Remember a few years ago when Megan Fox ruled these ‘polls’. Now she’s nowhere to be seen. That’s hardly because she’s lost her looks at the ripe old age of 26, but rather because she’s just not a high-profile star with a hard-working PR team right now.

      • Miss Kiki says:

        Oh yes, then when she became a pariah after Transformers she wasn’t even featured anymore.

        I remember the year JLo won ‘People’s’ most beautiful person after she’d landed the AI gig, that was when I first started to realize just how ridiculous these things are. Don’t get me wrong I never bought into them before but that was the final nail in the coffin. I mean JLo?, it would have made more sense in 2002 not 2011!

  12. marie says:

    I’m not gonna lie, when I first saw the photo (smaller version) I thought it was Eva Mendes. Beyonce looks good, not really like herself though. And I think she’s on the February issue because of the Super Bowl.. You know “Look, Beyonce’s half naked so remember to watch her half-time show.”

  13. Cyndie says:

    I think Beyonce is very sexy. My friends refer to her as ‘walking sex’ and I’ve never come across any guy who doesn’t think she’s a top contender in the sexiest girl department. Bitch is beautiful. Damn!!! And I would kill to be this hot

    • thinkaboutit says:

      Amen to this. The woman is hot as hell. She is the go-to feminine ideal I hear men reach for the most, as in “damn that girl is hotter than Beyonce!” or “I wish I could find my Beyonce.” And at the same time she has just enough woman power to have equal numbers of women on her cheering squad. I think those things combined wrap this up for her.

      Anyone who thinks Rihanna would have made a better choice is mad. She is too tacky, too unstable, and too ignorant to even rate. Plus the belly chain (which I hate on both of them) was Bey’s first :-)

  14. Yitka says:

    Whats with that belly chain she always wears?

  15. RN says:

    Hair’s not hers, abdomen’s not hers, legs aren’t hers….. Really, at this point, they could’ve just put Susan Boyle on the cover and ‘shopped her to death with practically the same results.

  16. Eleonor says:

    If there’s something I admire of Beyonce is her body. I like it. But in the picture there’s no Bey, that could be Rhianna’s waist.

  17. MsAubra says:

    …so long as she isn’t speaking lol

    • Cazzee says:

      LOL – have to admit the thought popped into my head “Wow, she certainly looks like somebody with a 5th grade education” in that top photo.

      Bless her heart, she has absolutely no intellectual tools to help her contest (or at least nuance her participation in) the male gaze. Maybe someday when she’s older she’ll discover that she’s more than just what other people think of her – she’s an actual human being, not just a singing dress-up doll.

  18. ella says:

    Umm what?
    She’s like Mariah Carey. Both are beautiful women who wear skimpy dresses, sing about sex and have big boobs but when I see either of them I just don’t think about sex. At ALL.

    Like it never even crosses my mind that Mariah or Beyonce are actually having actual sex with someone. They’re way too high maintenance for that! They just sing about it.

  19. Green is Good says:

    Oh, please. Whose body did they stick her head on?

  20. Ranunculus says:

    She should put on some clothes for a change. Her shtick becomes boring. There is also probably a ton of Photoshop involved. Meh, very meh!

  21. VV says:

    That cover is so Try Hard and I am wondering why sexy has to equate to little clothing, hands in hair and come hither expression. I am not a prude but I am SO tired of this same tired look. If you’re gonna declare someone the sexiest of whatever…least make it smokin’ and unique :)

  22. Nicolette says:

    Why do they even do these “sexiest woman” “sexiest man” editions? Until they can search the entire globe and look at everyone, which is impossible, this nonsense should stop. And please already with the photoshopped “beauty” which is so fake. Maybe label it “sexiest in music/acting”, which she isn’t.

  23. Jayna says:

    She is one of the most beautiful around, just so beautiful and sex, but I thought Rhianna deserved it this year. She was beyond sexy and loved most of her looks this past year.

  24. says:

    A little off-topic: does anyone else feel a little sad when looking at the picture of Blue Ivy playing? That room behind her is just so neat and cold. I don’t see any kid toys laying around.

  25. anneesezz says:

    Um, NO. Seems like they are trying really hard to be politically correct by picking Beyonce. The whole century? Really? Get real.

  26. fabgrrl says:

    I think she looks “sexier” in that photo with Obama than she does on the GQ cover. That retro, bombshell look is pulled-together, confident, and alluring. It is much better than her skanky, sleepy, torn up clothing, look.

  27. Annie says:

    This woman is a huge fraud. The way she pretends to be a songwriter and shares credit with real songwriters? Everyone knows she adds a word or two to legally get a song credit. I really hated how she thought she could be nominated for an Oscar for Dream Girls, and when she knew Jennifer Hudson would win she could not stand back and let her have her moment, she had to sing ALL the nominated songs at the ceremony stealing the chance to perform to the people who earned a nomination and hogging the attention from Jennifer. And I cannot stand how she bleaches her skin and likes to go blonde. She’s so distespectful to her heritage. Especially the skin.
    Also, I completely believe she faked that pregnancy. No wonder an entire hospital floor was closed for them, security cameras were covered up. Why the secrecy? Why do people defend the stupid video in which you see the stomach folding? No pregnant woman sits like that; you cannot. You can clearly see the prosthetic collapsing, why do people make excuses when they’re being lied to?

    I hate it when celebrities feed BS to people and people gladly eat it up because OMG who would fake a pregnancy?! You have no idea the lengths these people go to to protect their image. I’m a firm believer that not only she didn’t give birth, but there’s no DNA of hers in that child.

    • Jenny says:

      Just curious as to where you get the skin bleaching from? I spefically went back and checked out pics from when Destiny’s Child first came out and she was always very light-skinned.

      I personally think she looks better with light hair. No one ever calls out someone like Charlize Theron for going blonde all the time…

      • Lindsey says:

        …don’t you know? There’s no such thing as a light skinned black person >_>

      • lena80 says:

        @ Annie, These Beyonce bleaching comments should really die. Have magazines photoshopped her complexion? YES. Does she bleach her skin? NO. For the last time Black people come in more than one shade besides ebony. Beyonce is what is known as light skinned AKA high yellow (this term can be seen as offensive to some). We CAN shockingly get darker in the sun just like white people and hold on…we get lighter when we are out of the sun like white folks as well! It’s not bleaching and it’s not sorcery….it’s called getting a TAN or losing a tan. All you have to google her baby pics and take a hard look at very light skinned mother.

        What is offensive, is your ignorance on the matter and equating changing skin tones depending on sun exposure or even tanning salons as “bleaching”. From this light skinned black woman, Please take a _/

  28. Crack Fox says:

    Beyonce is a stunning woman, but I don’t think she’s sexy at all. I’ve seen her in TriBeCa, and the sex appeal just isn’t there. And, may I add, she wears butt pads. Her bum is wide and flat, I saw it with my own four eyes.

    Personally, I would have put Eva Green and Rihanna’s crazy ass on the cover. They are delicious.

  29. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    Her thighs, her abdomen… They even photoshopped her left forearm.


  30. truthful says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with it, at least she is an entertainer and has some talent to speak of.

  31. Dawn says:

    I don’t see it. Really I don’t. I have heard awful things about her for years about she is a fake. But it could have been worse, they could have picked old lard ass Kim karTrashian.

  32. dorothy says:

    Really? I’m mean, really??

  33. Rux says:

    I would have been against this completely a few months ago, but my hubby and I decided to rent concerts to watch. We rented two of Beyonce’s and I have to say, I was floored. That woman can move and sing. After watching, those I have to back this GQ thing up. I love the fact that she is not bone thin and has “smaller” boobies compared to other stars but has those great hips and thighs.

  34. Lindsey says:

    It looks hot, but that photoshop around her thighs is like…really weird. She got thick thighs, she stacked…why they tryina fashion her thighs into those of Gwyneth Paltrow?

  35. cs says:

    And people wonder how Adele sold over 25+ million albums worldwide in an age of downloads and piracy. It’s because she’s talented and no one was distracted by booty shots.” 21 was the best-selling musical release of 2011 and helped revitalise lagging sales of the United States and UK music industry. Critics hailed the album as a shift from the overtly sexual and sonically bombastic status quo, and attributed its success to its deeply autobiographical yet universal songs”. We actually listened to the lyrics. I’m American, but I still don’t get why women here feel they need to pose half-naked to be seen or sell albums. The older they get the more clothes come off. It was stated on another site, that Beyonce hasn’t pose this seductively since 2004 ( 9 years ago, at 22).
    Besides, this cover is so photoshopped. Beyonce hasn’t seen hips/thighs like that since she was 12.

  36. bettyrose says:

    Almost ten years ago, I had a classroom full of male students who also voted her that (they were joking around before class started – and I was happy to hear that their choice wasn’t some skeletal untalented starlet).

  37. Lisa says:

    Don’t forget the neck, it not hers either, everything is lengthened and distorted my eyes are burning
    From this overphotoshpped nightmare.
    It’s well known in music industry beyonce suffers from some kind of mental illness, jay z bought that cover because she wants to sexiest woman of 21 century, look for the next cover sexiest woman of all time, this cover just screams desperation.

  38. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Thank you meow mix annie and others; massive marketing for this vacant between the ears bimbo – have you heard her actually attempt to talk intelligently – Pop culture used to be interesting – now it’s just boring the same 20 or so celebutards buying media coverage – thank God, there’s the fashion spot and bellazon on the internet where you can look at non-photoshopped pics are true beauties like Linda Evangilista and Yasmeen ghauri- and they blow away this overhyped famewhoring dope.

  39. Lisa says:

    Yeah, I believe it too Annie, that’s why beyonce never recovered from that publicity nightmare of faking her pregnancy and have become very public from that time, the problem is no one care any more, Rihanna has taken over that place.
    Just like to add beyonce is a terrible actress but would not let Jennifer Hudson have the spotlight when she wasn’t nominated, I’ m glad her time in the industry is over and Rihanna replaced her.

  40. Diana says:

    When did trashy become sexy? somebody please explain!!!

  41. kaydee says:

    She says in the article that she’s worked harder than anyone else in the music industry…. This I believe is a prime example of what Wendy Williams was talking about in regards to Beyonce’s education level and why she should just keep her mouth shut and perform!!!!

    • A. says:

      ”…harder than anyone SHE KNOWS in the music industry.” And yes she has worked hard. Come on now, give the girl some cred. I give cred where cred is due and if anyone (in the music biz) deserves some cred it’s Beyonce. Her work ethics are beyond crazy.
      Don’t misstake me for some stan now, I just like seeing women succeed. She has played her cards very well and I applaud her for that.

      • kaydee says:

        I completely agree with you and I never said she wasn’t talented or that she didn’t work hard, but comments like that are huge eye rollers I mean…
        Okay even if she did say “harder than anyone she knows,” wasn’t she in a girl GROUP for a huge portion of her life? And didn’t that help spring board her into the megastar she is now? And Beyonce KNOWS a lot of people in that business, imagine saying something like that aloud to your friends and family. Cringe worthy!!
        Basically I’m saying it comes off very narcissistic and condescending. For someone who has achieved all that she has at this point she should be confident in that.
        I’m sorry if it came off like I was taking credit from her, that wasn’t at all my intention, but I was always taught that credit is to be given and never taken and I’ve heard and read her make comments like this before and it just rubs me the wrong way. I mean in this very article she talks about how “Powerful” she is…. Is that really necessary?

      • ??? says:

        @A.: Her comment is still inarticulate and arrogant. Just like she is in general. Her self-aggrandizing little documentary project is even more proof positive.

        The concept of hard work is relative, as is the concept of ambition. Beyonce’s goal was to acquire F-A-M-E. And she did just that by taking all the necessary steps, which included aggressively creating a public image and launching a pr campaign that catapulted her into the spotlight and have kept her there.

        There’s nothing wrong with any of that. And there’s no denying that she has worked hard. But not all of her peers desire her level of large-scale public recognition and validation. Not all them feel the need to stake a claim in everything. This doesn’t mean they haven’t worked their a$$es off. Take Alicia Keys, for example. Apart from her music, she’s designed a jewelry line. And she’s carved out a side niche with occasional acting gigs. But she’s not trying to be everywhere all the time with her own clothing line, and fragrance, and product endorsements, and umpteen magazine covers, etc. She’s not constantly trying to stay relevant at every turn like Beyonce is. Apparently, this is how Beyonce defines “hard work,” and she seems mistakenly convinced that her definition is THE standard.

        On another note, I can’t imagine how Beyonce — or Jay-Z for that matter — can possibly hold a conversation with two people as intelligent and well-spoken as President and First Lady Obama. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that room.

  42. KellyinSeattle says:

    I love James Taylor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    As for Beyonce’, not really interested

  43. Happy21 says:

    I’ve never really found Bey all that “sexy”. She looks to me like that is what she is trying for. Isn’t sexy just being? I’d vote Christina Hendricks myself. Now that is one sexy woman. Not just her bod but her face.

  44. Gistine says:

    It’s a good thing she didn’t give birth because she would have really messed her body up.

    You’d be voted the sexiest person of the whatever too if you had plastic surgery, hair and make-up people 24/7 and photoshop to blend your ass into a clone. Hell, they even have to polish up this broad’s warbling voice.

    Hater? Hell yeah. But when you get these people crammed in your face all the time, it gets old. Especially when you know that person is a lying fraud and they smile all the while they’re promoting themselves. These people have no shame and are rubbing our noses in it.

  45. Nev says:

    You know who is a sexy woman? Kourtney Kardashian is gorgeous and her attitude is really sexy to me!!!!!

    Beyonce. No.

  46. Thiajoka says:

    She’s gorgeous, true. But we are only a little over 12 years into the 21st century, so this was a bit premature.

  47. shewolf says:

    Beyonce is beautiful without a doubt and her figure is something I can’t help but stare at since the 90′s. But sexy? She never really had a sexy vibe to her and she usually keeps it classy so she’s not even cheap sexy.

  48. Helene says:

    It’s funny, it says on the cover ‘and all your favourite Jessicas.’ Somewhere right now Jessica Biel is screaming and wishes Justin Timberlake was there to calm her down.

  49. j.eyre says:

    Do you think she wears that to take out the trash?

  50. Garvels says:

    I wondered how much her and jayz had to pay GQ to give her that title? Maybe she is the sexiest fake,overhyped and photoshopped diva ever.

  51. FirstTimer says:

    She’s sexy, yes. But not the sexiest of the century!

  52. Alana Fajina says:

    I’m sad about this cover. Not that she isn’t sexy, I love me some Bey but I just think this is way too try-hardy and I think it’s beneath her to be posing in such a [tacky] manner. She is better than that.

  53. Grace says:

    Sexiest of the 21st century? wonder how much she paid GQ for this?

  54. mar says:

    I do not like how she tries to be a role model (like kissing Obama’s ass) and then does this? Its a bit risque for someone that kids look up to. I say leave the trashy pics for Rhianna.

    Go put some clothes on girl

  55. Would Vincent Cassel Wear This? says:

    Charlize Theron beats Beyonce everyday of the week.

  56. yoyo says:


    Why the HELL does she fell the need to parade in skimpy clothing like that all the damn time. I find that so insulting to women.

    You can be sexy without dressing like a tart.

    She’s obviously not the only one doing that. All female pop/R&B singers feel like they need to “dress” like hoochies.

    Whether you like their music or not, Aguilera, Carey, Gaga and Beyonce CAN sing. Why do they feel the need to dress like hoochies constantly?

    I understand why J-Lo or Kesha need to dress like that, they have to distract from the lack of singing ability but these other ones?!

    I find it disgusting this objectification of women. Do ANY of the guys need to undress in their videos and photoshoots? Do they feel obligated to do that? No. Do any of the guys sell their before and after weight loss stories to magazines? No.
    Why are women expected to parade on the beach in skimpy bikinis but guy are expected to wear board shorts!

    All these double standards irritate the crap out of me.

    Seriously, if Adele one day sheds weight and sells her story to a magazine and starts parading dressed like a tart instead of the classy lady she is, it would just disgust me.

    Ok sorry, rant over I’m so tired of this, I feel like we are all trapped in this hoochie zone. We just get constantly bombarded with these images of half naked women, on magazines, in the subway, on billboards, in commercials, in music videos, etc…. it’s demeaning.

  57. BlueAngelCV says:

    I don’t really notice photoshop normally but this is just ridiculous.
    She’s a beautiful woman but she’s not THAT beautiful woman.
    I don’t expect them to use no shop (although I wish they would) but there’s a difference between touching up and giving someone a new body.

  58. Nicole Ocean says:

    I love how her stans are defending this photoshoot. These stans are the same people who like to trash Rihanna and Gaga for wearing skimpy clothes.

    • manta says:

      And at least Gaga and Rihanna spared us the sanctimonious attitude.
      Beyonce inflicted on us Nasty Girl (Destiny’s child era). Remember the lyrics?
      “Sleazy, nasty classless, nasty
      Nasty put some clothes on, I told ya Don’t walk out your house without your clothes on, I told ya
      Girl what you thinkin’ bout lookin’ that to’ down, I told ya”
      I rolled my eyes at the time thinking, please, you’ll just do it like the others.

  59. MyLeNe - Montreal says:

    Why we never see this kids .. She is ugly or what ?! … It’s make everybody more suspicious about this pregnancy !

  60. MyLeNe - Montreal says:

    I think Beyonce need to more pose like that now because she have big “competition” … Kim Kardashian … Imagine the situation : Beyonce can’t give a child (natural way) to Jay-Z and this Kim Kardashian is REAL pregnant … hahaha Friends and “FAM” ??? I don’t think SO !

  61. DAFFY says:

    power couple #1 after the president

  62. MyLeNe - Montreal says:

    NO WAY she is the more beautiful woman on the list … No No No .. She is very beautiful but not the number 1

  63. lola lola says:

    If she is so beautiful then why did they have to airbrush the shit out of her body? She has NEVER had thighs like that. She has a gorgeous curvy body. Why try to make her look like some stupid model?!?

  64. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    Not amazing.

  65. aang says:

    No. I wish she would wear her own hair. Obviously fake hair is not sexy. Natural hair is.

  66. sunny says:

    Am I the only person that thinks her stomach looks very strange? I get the muscles can have different looks depending on body type but I’ve never seen a stomach like that on a toned’s….lumpy? Just looks really bizarre to me

  67. palermo says:

    I have always liked her, but she wasn’t always the same color I am … This is why I quit buying magazines, everybody is so totally and ridiculously photoshopped they might as well not bother to have them on the covers

    How much she pay GQ to write this and photoshop this gap between her legs and this imaginary image that she gave birth. They tried to make her tummy look ummm….as if she had a baby. How bogus is that.

    I’m a big fan of Beyonce but I usually find her asexual. This is the first photo I’ve seen where I thought she was truly incredibly sexy.

    Beyonce is very beautiful and sexy, probably up there. But I agree it’s a little premature. ;)

  72. emma says:

    plus Beyonce is definitely arching and posing hard. I think there’s prob a bit of photoshop, but not too much.

    look at her legs here:
    and here:

    Yeah she has curves, but her legs are still pretty slim.
