Beyonce Covers Ebony

Published: Thursday 26th Feb 2009 by Sam
Beyonce Covers EbonyR&B superstar Beyonce features on the cover of the April issue of Ebony magazine. I’m feeling most of Bouncy’s spread, yet the feature article is equally as good. Check out a preview below:

When asked who is the real Beyonce, she tells the magazine:

Array

“I’m a daughter, I’m a friend, I’m a wife, I’m a sister. All those things first. I’m artist. I’m a businesswoman. I’m multifaceted. I’m a lover. I’m inspired by love. I make decisions from the heart.”

When she makes decisions about what projects to do, her priority is not money but personal growth.“I turn down million dollar offers all the time because it’s something that does not feel true for what I’m trying to say. I have to be passionate about it. Love inspires and growth inspires me…If it is not going to be iconic, something I can love 10 years from now, I’ve learned I should not waste my time with it.”

She says her and Jay-Z stay out of each other’s business dealings.

“He was very successful before I met him and I was very successful before I met him. So we have so much respect for each other, and respect for each other artistically. We are very close friends, and I believe he is the ultimate artist and he has the same feelings for me.”

Asked to describe herself as a wife:

“I don’t know how to talk about it because I don’t like to talk about it. But I have a great example of a great wife, and that’s my mother. And I have great friends around me that have been married, so I’m lucky to have really good examples. And a great husband.”

She says they are just like any other couple. She is learning to cook and he’s getting over his single-guy habits.

One thing she does to get on his nerve: “I’m a little messy. Oh, yeah. Whenever I’m out in public, I have to be put together. When I get home, I rebel against it and I don’t want to take care of anything. I drop it. I’m relaxed. I don’t have any shoes on. No makeup. My purse is in the kitchen. I think that is most difficult thing for him. He’s very, very organized. I’m extremely organized when I’m working, and I work so much that when I get home I don’t want to think about anything.”

As for what Jay-Z does that get on her nerves: She laughs, “I won’t say.”

She said she doing charity work such as working with women and children through shelters and organizations. She says she is mentoring and counseling them.

Asked about a quote from years ago where she said she wanted to retire by age 21. She says she could have retired at that age but now she has no intention of ever retiring.

“I’ve worked so hard on my craft, and I will never stop. I will never retire. I love it way too much.”

    I just looooove Beyonce to death and i never get tired of her and im glad that THIS site shares my same infatuation with this multi-talented artist! It amazes me how ppl continuously try to hate on her…like what could you possibly hate on her about? Shes gorgeous, talented and just everything you could ever want in an entertainer…but they love people like “Ciera” or “Rihanna” and not that they arent good at what they do, but you HAVE to know Beyonce is better, she just is! You just dont want to like her bc shes so great..which is understandable i guess…lol…if yall werent hating she wouldnt be doing something right.

    First commenter are you retarded?…no seriously. But anyway, yuck! That cover is awful, and I believe nothing she says because she only cares about being 'safe' & good. Beyonce sit down.

    WOW….i love the pics and article.. Now being honest the article is basic. but we all know Bee never talks so i was reading it like “she said that” “she’s really talking about Jay”….so big ups for finally doing that…all the pics are bomb…i think cuz she’s looks really black in the pics…kinda like when DC first came out. For the negative comments. be real..u cant hate on somebody who has love for themselves and others. It just wont work…Go Bee…luv u lil homette!

    To February 26, 2009 11:06 PM, Anonymous:
    Creole is a culture, not a race. If you look at her and see creole, what do you see when you look at Alicia Keys who is lighter and has a mother that is white. How about Halle, whose mother is also white, Mariah Carey whose father is Venezualan and mother is white and Lisa Bonet whose mother is white.

    Bey is black. I will never understand that stupid comment by her mother saying she was creole and not really black, which is so STUPID. I bet these mofos don’t know jack about the creole culture……….sheesh.

    Now as for the pix, she looks nice, same facial expressions as in all her photoshots, but she looks nice. I’ve seen her look better and I’ve seen her look worse. There isn’t anything new or exciting about her any more. It’s the same ole, same ole.

  26. melissa February 27, 2009

    Damn, for people to hate and say they don’t care for her, it’s sure a lo of comments on here, which means that ya’ll took the time to read the articel, look at the pics, and then respond. Tisk. Get a life PLEASE!!!!!! I hate ya’ll f****** haters, for real.
    Anyway,Mrs. Bee looks gorgeous, but I want to know what Jay does! lol

  27. Anonymous February 27, 2009

    People comment because well…they can. Most post just for the heck of it and for you to take this mess personal shows you are the one who needs to get a life. Hate the “haters” all the you want. All are entitled to their opinions and being a part of Bey’s praise and worship team is not mandatory for all who post comments about her. Breath easy. It is not that serious.

    Beyonce is so manufactured. On the Cover Girl cover, she is a blond. On Ebony, all of a sudden she is a sista, choosing the curlier hair instead.

    What a fake!

  34. Anonymous February 27, 2009

    She is fake. Whatever to make a buck, huh? I just cannot believe she is going to portray Angela Davis in a movie….at least according to rumor she is. SMH. Eartha Kitt, Etta James, and Angela Davis deserve better.

    she looks amazing. pics look high fashion.

    After that Oscar performance, I think people are starting to wake up. Face it, Beyonce, you are no longer popular like you were in 2003. On a side note, her hair looks nice. She should do the natural thing more often.

  39. Anonymous March 1, 2009

    beyonce = LAME ASS. shes a hell of a fake, and all the stans seem to me to be one person, how sad, coming on this site and writing big fat posts of your ‘queen bey’ lmao i was laughing when i was reading them. big fat LOLLLLL…

  40. Anonymous March 1, 2009

    ^^^Yeah. I recall seeing plenty of posts for “queen bey” on prior articles about her on this site. Hilarity indeed. There was even one person who dared to say that “insulting Bey was like insulting God”. I, personally, had a field day on that one. Could not believe what I read. It is ok to be a fan and think the world of that person, if you wish….but some of these people go to far and it seems a bit scary at times. As for this post, I think she is to play Angela Davis (SMH) and perhaps that explains the wig and the expression on her face. Anglea Bassett would have been perfect, but oh well……

  41. Anonymous March 1, 2009

    if beyonce is your god, your life must be one hell of a shittaa. and enough with the ghetto lame ass talking, u make me LOL…..

  42. Anonymous March 4, 2009

    Cover doesn’t look like her because she is trying to channel Angela Davis so she can play her though we should be seeing Nia Long or Kimberly Elise or even Angela Basset could still pull it. Yeah, the pics look good, yeah she is talented,yeah I am tired of her, yeah she evokes jealousy, but she does need to take a break. I am tired of her trying to be in everyone’s grill…..can I still say that?
