Queen Bey is on the cover of yet another magazine -- this time it's the L.A. based Flaunt and it's a Beyoncé we haven't seen before. She's wearing nothing (even on top -- get your mind out of the gutter, we mean on her head) but a lot of glitter.
In the interview, Beyoncé succinctly addresses several open questions around her persona -- starting with some insight on what it takes to seduce her. She tells the mag that the perfect picnic basket for someone hoping to get lucky should include, "a cozy blanket, red wine, fruit, '90s R&B playing on my iPod," that two pieces of architecture she'd like to make out under include, "The Louvre, or under the Arc de Triomphe. Paris is a beautiful, sexy city" and that she's obsessed with Antony and Cleopatra, saying " the legend of that love affair affected history and lives to this day."

No offense to the lady mags, but Bey threw down about them, saying that if you need to read their lists of love advice, you're already in trouble.
The singer also addressed public controversy about her endorsement of Michelle Obama's childhood obesity campaign and the conflicting endorsement with Pepsi. The rational in her dueling stances? Balance.
"Pepsi is a brand I've grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn't encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance.
When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it's great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It's all about choices."
The choices continue, as Beyonce's Mrs. Carter World Tour marches through the U.S. for the rest of the summer.
