Beyonce‘s first magazine cover of 2014 goes to Out magazine. The gay and lesbian publication picked Third Ward Trill as the poster girl for their power issue and she vamps it up ***flawlessly in a peroxide blond Marilyn Monroe wig. Apart from looking unfathomably gorgeous, the “Drunk In Love” diva has some important things to say about double standards in the music industry.

“There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists,” empress B told Out. “Men are free and women are not. That is crazy.” The 32-year-old is referring to the negative feedback she received for recording sexually-charged songs like “Partition”, “Rocket” and “Blow” on her blockbuster visual album. But she’s having none of it. “You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist — whatever you want to be‚ and still be a sexual being,” she explains. “It’s not mutually exclusive.”

  1. wait...

    Um, what’s so new and fascinating about her. She’s not saying anything or introducing anything new to the industry. The “visual album” really? That’s not new.

    • BetterThanYou

      You idiot, whats new is her consistent TALENT! the visual album, who else has done that? who else dropped their entire visual album with NO promotion and sell a million copies in a week? Not to mention her work ethic, string of hits & her incredible voice and music that reaches the hearts of millions. Please you’re nothing but another Bey hater. Its only your fault that her life is better than yours

      • wait...

        You idiot, she did it with BDay and Annie Lennox did it in ’92. Janet Javkson did it in ’89, but instead of the full album, she mad a Rhythm Nation film with like 4 vids. She was everywhere in 2013, idiot. That was promotion. That didn’t come from nothing. Her ideologies are nothing new. She’s not doing anything, but fooling the dummies by calling it feminism.

  2. omg

    It’s almost like men and women experience attraction differently.

    Step your recycled Xtina talking points up wannabe feminists

  3. Love Her

    I love Queen Bey! I love her being bold and fearless and taking a stand! She isn’t just go with the flow.
