Beyonce week continued on Friday with the release of The Gentlewoman magazine, which features the singer on the cover and in a gorgeous photo spread.

In the Spring/Summer 2013 issue, the31-year-old superstar flaunts her famous figure in in a variety of poses and outfits, all while wearing minimal makeup.

“In a characteristically warm chat the hardest-working woman in show business opens up on matters of motherhood, marriage, business and creative ambition,” the publication’s editor-in-chief Penny Martin wrote to readers on The Gentlewoman’s Facebook page.

Beyonce is expected to open up about the same matters on Saturday, first in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter, followed by the highly anticipated HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream.

“I did a show three months after I gave birth, which was really crazy,” Beyonce tells Winfrey in a preview released by the OWN network this week. “I had clearly never given birth and I didn’t know I would gain . . . 57 pounds.”

The “Crazy In Love” singer also speaks candidly about her husband of four-years, Jay-Z.

“I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man . . . It just gives me such a foundation.”

Oprah’s Next Chapter airs on Saturday at 8PM on OWN; Beyonce’s documentary Life Is But a Dream premieres on HBO at 9PM.
