Our favorite blonde baddie is letting it all hang out for OUT Magazine‘s “Power Issue” and now we have access to the entire spread. She somehow found time in between her non-stop touring schedule to strike power stances for the black and white themed shoot…and look “flawless” while doing so.
Additionally, writer Aaron Hicklin was given access to Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment team in an efforts to understand what it takes to keep a megastar on schedule.
“Although it is technically the 110th date of her eye-popping extravaganza the Mrs. Carter Show, it is only the second night of her dramatically revamped lineup. A few nights earlier she pulled an all-nighter to rehearse her new material before dashing to London for a last-minute appearance at the Brit Awards, only to dash back—still in her ball gown—to finish choreographing the show. This was no minor tweak—10 new songs were added to the lineup; others were abbreviated or turned into medleys to make room. Most artists would spend months working out the kinks. Beyoncé took three days.”
Her creative director Todd Tourso adds, “She’s completely relentless in her pursuit of perfectionism. It sounds cheesy, but that’s why I’m willing to work so hard for her. When you have this type of leadership and muse and mentor, I think the sky’s the limit.”
