"Bow down," indeed!
Beyonce stuns on the cover of Flaunt magazine, wearing only strategically-placed glittering body paint.
Inside the mag's pages, the 31-year-old superstar indulges readers in a Q&A on everything from her thoughts on gluten, to her must-have fashion item, to why she - like icons Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Cher and Madonna - is such a hit with gay men.
"I'm flattered if I'm in the company of those great women," the "Grown Woman" singer said. "I think they love that we are bold, unafraid to love, and flaunt our sexuality and strength."
While Bey fights for fitness and rallies against childhood obesity, she has nothing against carbs or gluten. In fact, she says she's got to have it!
"Sunday pizza is a must for me!" she said.
The star also said her one absolute fashion must-have is "a simple white T-shirt," and admitted she's bored by "lack of creativity."
With husband Jay-Z's newly released "Magna Carta Holy Grail" album (which includes a sexy duet with Bey) already topping the charts, the singer was asked if there is a historic sex scandal that she finds "awesome."
"Antony and Cleopatra," she answered. "The legend of that love affair affected history and lives to this day."
