The star goes for gold as she chats about being a gay icon and her must-have fashion item.
Beyoncé leaves little to the imagination on the cover of the "Context Issue" of Flaunt magazine. The singer appears completely naked save for a shimmering coat of bronze glitter covering her entire body and she looks flawless. The Africa-themed shoot, photographed by Tony Duran, took place in 2011 and viewers can catch glimpses of the shots in her Year of 4 documentary.
In the issue, Bey talks about her must-have clothing item (a white T-shirt), controversy regarding her Pepsi campaign, and why some see her as a "gay icon."
"I think [gay men] love that we are bold, unafraid to love, and flaunt our sexuality and strength," Bey says.
She also responded to criticisms that came up after she participated in the Let's Move campaign against childhood obesity and followed it up with this year's Pepsi campaign.
"Pepsi is a brand I've grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn't encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance," she says. "When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it's great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It's all about choices."
