Beyoncé is ‘Out’ Magazine’s Power Issue Cover Girl
Sporting a chin-length Marilynesque platinum bob and very little else, the mother-of-one channels retro Hollywood glamour on the black and white cover.

The Queen tells Out‘s Editor-in-Chief Aaron Hincklin, “I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority. We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.”
Bey, who managed to record her fifth studio album, Beyoncé, without anyone knowing, also talks about female empowerment and how “women should own their sexuality. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that.”
The May issue of Out is on newsstands April 22nd. What do you think of Beyoncé’s new cover?
