Beyoncé’s cover on Out Magazine is her first magazine cover for the year 2014. Inside the magazine, Bey discussed her latest album Beyoncé. The singer revealed that her music can empower all sorts of individuals not just the ladies. She also thanked her team, the Parkwood Entertainment, for making this album a hit.
What can she say about the sexual liberation conversation which she included in her latest album? Bey said:
“I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, 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. 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.”
“[It was] much freer than anything I’d done in the past. We really just tried to trust our instincts, embrace the moment, and keep it fun.” As an illustration she singled out the video for “Drunk in Love,” a fan favorite. “We were in Miami for Jay’s concert, and it was just the two of us, on the beach, amazing weather, and one outfit! It’s beautiful in its simplicity. If you want something to feel real and urgent, you can’t overthink it.”
