Beyoncé Covers GQ Magazine

Beyoncé graces the cover of the latest edition of GQ magazine, rocking a sporty, blue half-shirt and red leopard print undies. "The 100 Sexiest Women of the 21st Century, Starting with Beyoncé," reads the cover copy.

On the inside, Bey reflected on her cultural influence and personal strength:

"I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."

She also spoke on what fans might expect from her forthcoming fifth studio LP:

"Mostly R&B. I always have my Prince and rock/soul influences. There's a bit of D'Angelo, some '60s doo-wop. And Aretha and Diana Ross."

She added that she's been working with Pharrell, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and The-Dream on the album's production.
