Beyoncé Knowles has posed for her raciest
cover yet, as the mother of one appeared nude for magazine Flaunt.
With her blushes spared only by a liberal
coating of bronze glitter, it is possibly her most revealing photoshoot to date.
In answer to the question about why gay men are drawn to the singer like 'gay icons' Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Cher, and Madonna:
'I'm flattered if I'm in the company of those great women. I think they love that we are bold, unafraid to love, and flaunt
our sexuality and strength,' she told Flaunt.
Beyonce is famously private about her relationship with husband Jay-Z, but she admitted she does enjoy letting her fans in on her life in other ways.
'I have chosen to keep certain aspects of my life private,' she said. 'But I also love sharing what makes me happy, especially through photography.'
