Beyoncé has stepped out to cover her first magazine of the year and she's channeling her inner Marilyn Monroe for Out magazine's Power issue. The 32-year-old singer looks seductive in a blonde bob with eyes closed and wearing nothing but a neck draped in pearls and necklaces. Inside the LGBT publication, Bey talks about sexuality and the issues women face when trying to expose that side of themselves.
"There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy," she said. "The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist — whatever you want to be — and still be a sexual being. It's not mutually exclusive."
