Beyonce lands the May cover of Vogue UK!

Beyonce covers the May issue of Vogue UK, and today we’re getting our first look at the pictures! I like the cover (enough), but the other two pictures are really rather boring for Vogue, aren’t they?

In the interview, Beyonce opens up about being a feminist, Mrs. Carter and a mother. Here are some clips:

Beyonce a feminist? “That word can be very extreme… But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman. If you’re attractive then you can’t be sexy, and you can’t be intelligent? What is all of that?…”

On being called Mrs. Carter: “I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept. But I’m happily married. I love my husband. I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do.’ The purpose of my body became completely different.”

On motherhood: “I definitely want my daughter to have goals and drive and passion – it has to be a balance. I hope she figures it out. Whatever makes her happy, I’m there. I do feel like I’m going to be honest with my daughter.”

I think Beyonce comes off as a super feminist. Doesn’t she? I mean I don’t think that’s necessarily a horrible thing, but what’s different about a modern-day feminist vs. a plain ol’ feminist? Food for thought.
