Beyoncé is the cover star for OUT magazine’s Power Issue for May 2014, and as you can see, she’s doing some channeling of Marilyn Monroe here. (Side note: What’s with everyone’s obsession with Marilyn Monroe? Seriously, why?)
In the issue, Bey gave her thoughts yet again on women’s sexuality and wants y’all to know you can turn up the heat in the bedroom and still be a lady on the streets:
In the issue, Blue Ivy’s mother speaks out on behalf of her fellow females. “There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists,” says Bey. “Men are free and women are not. That is crazy.”
She also encourages women to celebrate their sexuality. “You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being,” she continues. “There is unbelievable power in ownership and women should own their sexuality.”
Well, yeah. You know I love my Beyoncé, but this whole thing is getting a bit tired already. We know, we know, you love having sex with Jay-Z and you’re tired of being stifled by society’s expectations. I’m with you! Women should be able to do whatever men do and we deserve gender equality in all areas. But like… chill a bit. You’re not a politician, girl – you’re an entertainer.
