Beyoncé graces Out magazine’s Power issue: ‘Women should own their sexuality’

NY Daily News: Beyoncé is on a power trip.

The Houston-born pop star has been on a campaign for women’s empowerment that apparently isn’t subsiding anytime soon.

“I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation,” Beyoncé, 32, tells Out magazine in an interview for its May Power issue, her first magazine feature since debuting her self-titled album in December.

“There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality.”

In addition to promoting sexual liberty for women in her songs, like “Partition” and strength in “Flawless,” Beyonce has been representing the national “#BanBossy” initiative.

“I’m not bossy — I’m the boss,” she says, in the new campaign ad, fronted by “Lean In” author Sheryl Sandberg and the Girl Scouts of America, designed to help girls develop self-esteem.

Being that I am a woman in a male-dominated society, the feminist mentality rang true to me and became a way to personalize that struggle,” she said.

Her interview with Out is not by chance either. Beyoncé told the magazine that she is aware of her status as an icon within the LGBT community.

“What I’m really referring to, and hoping for, is human rights and equality, not just that between a woman and a man,” she said.

“So I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority … We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.”

The “XO” singer also gave new details about the making of her top-selling fifth album, which she secretly released in December, including that she even recorded her latest single while sick.

“I was sick with a bad sinus infection,” she told the magazine. “I really loved the imperfections, so I kept the original demos.”

Quit playing the victim Beyoncé. Your “struggle” as a “feminist” in a “male-dominated society” hasn’t held you back. In fact it’s helped you become worth $350 million.

I wasn’t aware that we were still “living in a male dominated society”. I would say that the feminazis have pretty much concluded their agenda.

Oh! What a picture to treasure and show the grandchildren–Beyoncé, with her legs splayed apart . . . for all the world to see! It’s really quite a thrilling moment in the annals of history.

ugh….sounds like she memorized a script. Another reason to keep your daughters out of Girl Scouts of America. She clearly doesn’t embrace traditional values or Christ. She might have millions of dollars, but she is very ignorant. She is a shell of a human (I don’t even think she can look at herself in the mirror and recognize the reflection) and her image is a mere creation from her satanist-worshipping misogynist hubbie Jay-Z (who is an ultimate feminist because feminism doesn’t embrace femininity, it embraces misogyny through it’s deceptive means of so-called “empowerment”). She is a no talent, who, like… Read more »

Oh, so Little Miss Illuminati is out there, preaching to the choir, is she? Excuse me, but I was raised to believe that as God is the Author of Life, the sexuality and the rules regarding it were His Business and His Business Alone.
Whatever.
I got rid of the television years ago, and I rarely read magazines. No matter how much I try to insulate myself from this “culture,” it’s impossible to escape it. Kind of like radiation.
