Beyonce’s first magazine cover of 2014 was for ‘Out Magazine’ for their ‘Power’ issue. The article looks at Bey’s past, her inspiration and her ‘sexually charged’ album “Beyonce.” When asked how she creates the conversation surrounding women and their sexuality she said,
” I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.”
