Beyonce Flaunt MagazineTony Duran for Flaunt

Beyoncé has covered her fair share of magazines (this one included!) but we guarantee you’ve never seen her like this before.

The megastar (and 2012 PEOPLE’s World’s Most Beautiful woman) strips down and glams up in a dazzling coat of body paint and some major makeup for the latest issue of Flaunt.

And just as surprising as that sultry, sparkling cover: The notorious perfectionist opens up to the mag about topics as varied as her drag queen impersonators and awesome sex scandals in history.

Want to know where you can find her and Jay-Z making out? “The Louvre, or under the Arc de Triomphe,” she shares. “Paris is a beautiful, sexy city.”

How about how to pack a picnic to get her in a romantic mood? “A cozy blanket, red wine, fruit, ’90s R&B playing on my iPod. I don’t think you need much else,” she says.

For more insight from Beyoncé, visit, and pick up the latest issue, on stands July 11, for even more jaw-dropping shots (the two below are just a small sample of what’s inside!).

Too bad they didn’t cover her face

This woman is SO into herself. It’s not jealousy, it’s my opinion.

Clo on

That’s a bad photography! her left hand looks weird! it seems it belongs to another person! bad photo!

Hannah on

Her cover pose is absolutely ridiculous, the second is a blackface look that would spark outrage if another race tried it, and the third is too overdone.
Beyonce is beautiful all on her own. Let her be.

Crystal on

I like the cover, she is certianly a beautiful woman but tell me this – how did she get her hand to twist like that???? Photoshop blunder perhaps?

Jann on

Don’t really see WHY she did this. I guess since I think she is a self-absorbed woman and has no class, same goes for her husband by the way, that could be why I feel this way.
Oh well.

Narcissism at it’s best!

May be her face, but the bottom…
I went to beyonce concert in paris and thought she is a real good entertainer
But she seems to live in another word
Looking the world from her supposed throne , with her king and baby queen
Plus there are full of contradictions
Supporting a national good health campaign
And be sponsored by Pepsi
Claiming your independancy and calling your tour from your husband
Almost human but too much narcissic
Maybe that is it to be a star….

Cindy on

She looks like Tyra Banks on the cover pic. But anyway, Beyonce is so talented and probably one of the best entertainers in the world, so I don’t really understand why she does these kinds of photos. I find it rather disapointing.

I have a friend who has this same body, she paid 100 grand to have it… it is called liposuction, and body contoure. And I still doubt she was ever pregnant…
