“You know, equality is a myth, and for some reason, everyone accepts the fact that women don’t make as much money as men do. I don’t understand that. Why do we have to take a backseat? I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.”
– Beyonce has some pretty feminist-minded things to say in her upcoming HBO documentary, which GQ got a sneak preview of while reporting on the singer for their “Hottest Woman of the Century” cover story. Interesting that the men’s magazine chose to use this quote giving the accolade they were bestowing upon her, but I digress. My favorite quote from the actual GQ interview has Beyonce articulates her self-confidence thusly: ”I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.” I am putting that on a Post-It and sticking it to my bathroom mirror immediately. [GQ]
Beyonce’s boobs are all over the cover of the new GQ — and she’s baring full on underboob — as she illustrates the Sexiest Women of the Century, another one of those stupid men’s magazine’s lists that’s basically an excuse to post photos of scantily clad women. And women of the century is a little weird, too, because do they mean the last century — as in the past hundred years? Or do they mean the last 12 years? And if they mean the last hundred, well, that’s a lot of dead hotties, which I would think would be a total bonerkiller, no?
God, I clearly think about this shit way too much. In any case, if you’d like to see another photo, featuring the full cheesecake cover, and Bey in the world’s smallest underwears, by all means, click through…

I’ve never been super crazy about Beyonce, personally. But these pics, capturing her goofing off and doing her best Michael Jackson impression before her London show earlier this week, might have just changed my mind. Yup, I’m riding the “I Wanna Be BFFs With Jay and Bey” train now, along with Amelia. It’s nice to see her look like she’s actually having fun, instead of looking like she’s trying to look like she’s having fun.
I must admit, not a day goes by where I don’t wake up feeling just a tiny bit pissed off that Gwyneth Paltrow is BFFs with Jay-Z and Beyonce. And husband Chris Martin reaps the rewards! On New Year’s Eve, Coldplay and Jay-Z co-headlined the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, ring in the new year with Jay’z “Run This Town.” In the background, you can see Gwyneth gettin’ down with her fierce white lady moves. (I’m not judging, really — I went to see Phish TWICE this weekend and have never danced so white in my life.) And on stage you can also see kids Apple and Moses dancing as well. I’m not so jealous of Gwyneth’s friendship with the Carters that I can’t admit that’s pretty cute. [NYMag.com]
