When you think “power” who immediately comes to mind? Because if it’s not Beyonce, the undisputed Queen of the World, then you might want to reconsider.
Queen Bey was the obvious choice for OUT Magazine, and she covers their May Power Issue. Look at her, channeling that blonde bombshell goddess look, proving that she does, in fact, own us.
So where does Beyonce get some of her undeniable power from? “There is unbelievable power in ownership,” she told the magazine, “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. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that.” That’s definitely a lesson Beyonce has taken to heart. And thank goodness for it.
Honestly, every time I read an interview with her, I love her even more. I mean, she can say stuff like, “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,” and actually make you believe it! Beyonce knows you, guys.
