Beyonce Works It Out In EBONY

Beyonce is rocking the cover and pages of the upcoming issue of EBONY magazine.  And the pics are lovely: When asked who is the real Beyonce, she tells the magazine: “I’m a daughter, I’m a friend, I’m a wife, I’m a sister. All those things first. I’m artist. I’m a businesswoman. I’m multifaceted. I’m a lover. I’m inspired by love. I make decisions from the heart.” Asked to describe herself as a wife: “I don’t know how to talk about it because I don’t like to talk about it. But I have a great example of a great wife, and that’s my mother. And I have great friends around me that have been married, so I’m lucky to have really good examples. And a great husband.” She says they are just like any other couple. She is learning to cook and he’s getting over his single-guy habits. One thing she does to get on his nerve: “I’m a little messy. Oh, yeah. Whenever I’m out in public, I have to be put together. When I get home, I rebel against it and I don’t want to take care of anything. I drop it. I’m relaxed. I don’t have any shoes on. No makeup. My purse is in the kitchen. I think that is most difficult thing for him. He’s very, very organized. I’m extremely organized when I’m working, and I work so much that when I get home I don’t want to think about anything.” As what Jay-Z does that get on her nerves: She laughs, “I won’t say.” More pics and quotes when you read the rest... When she makes decisions about what projects to do, her priority is not money but personal growth: “I turn down million dollar offers all the time because it’s something that does not feel true for what I’m trying to say. I have to be passionate about it. Love inspires and growth inspires me…If it is not going to be iconic, something I can love 10 years from now, I’ve learned I should not waste my time with it.” She says her and Jay-Z stay out of each other’s business dealings: “He was very successful before I met him and I was very successful before I met him. So we have so much respect for each other, and respect for each other artistically. We are very close friends, and I believe he is the ultimate artist and he has the same feelings for me.” She said she doing charity work such as working with women and children through shelters and organizations. She says she is mentoring and counseling them. Asked about a quote from years ago where she said she wanted to retire by age 21: She says she could have retired at that age but now she has no intention of ever retiring: “I’ve worked so hard on my craft, and I will never stop. I will never retire. I love it way too much.” Fabulous.

[quote comment="437355"]She really needs to drop this iconic stuff. no one whose iconic ever aimed to be. it's something we give you, not something you make of yourself. let the public decide weavee! and so far it's not looking so good. lets think back to her absence at the grammy awards! no nom., no performance....interesting. ALL of her movies are a flop. it's public knowledge she's a bad actor. It's the collaboration movment now in music, why does no one want to work with her? AND she needs to wear everything one size up. No harm in being curvey, but girl needs to STOP squeezing herself into rihanna-sized clothes. Think back to that green number.[/quote] I so feel you...i have been saying the same things this album. WHAT ICON YOU KNOW EVER WENT AROUND SAYING "I WANT TO BE AN ICON"? NO ONE!!! IT JUST HAPPENS. But she always does that. She says stuff over & over so she can implant it in people's heads. Just chill out & let it happen. And if she really wants to work towards it she needs to take a break & write some songs w/ substance b/c she is talking about absolutely NOTHING on Diva. Nothing. People need a break from her. OVERKILL is not the word. I mean she's a great artist & everything. very entertained but give it a rest woman. I'm so over it!!!!

Miss Beyonce, you betta stop

Miss Beyonce, you betta stop workin hard fo what you have, other colored folk ain't too happy wit you bein successful. Dey be sayin dat you ain't a real negro cuz you wear fake hair, you have money, you have a husband, you have a famly dat luv you, and you ain't a real woman cuz you ain't havin no babies. Miss Beyonce, you aint gotta worry about Massa, you betta start worrin' about other negroes that are upset wit you for tryin to be da best at what you do. Fogit dat hard work, go sit in yo house and not talk, cuz us negras are gettin tired of seein' other hard workin' negras. Massa gon be spectin mo from us. We tired of seein you carry yoself like a lady. We tired of you tryin to act cuz Hollywood ain't big enuf fo no singa wantin' to reach fo sometin bigga. The thangs dat you see otha folk doin', dat ain't fo you to do. If you don't start cussin', doin' drugs, and cheatin' on yo husban, we really gon be upset. And da criticizin' gon get worse if you don't ack n say what we thank is bes. We jus ain't happy wit you not livin' yo life like we thank you should. You hea me Miss Beyonce? Beyonce keep doing what you do. This is your destiny and I pray that you will NOT apologize for your success and hard work. It is my prayer that you will NOT stop desiring to be better, or become better at what you do. I thank you for inspiring me to want the best, because God doesn't want us to settle for mediocrity. I pray that God will continue to bless you abundantly! And I know that you will continue to use those blessings to help others. Thanks for being ONE of the positive female role models for young girls.

last Beyonce

last Beyonce comment..... she's not going anywhere. I can't fault anyone for being "tired" of Bey and feeling like she's "oversaturated", because sometimes I get tired of seeing her brand too.....however, I've just resolved myself to the fact that she's not going anywhere for a very long time........regardless of hate, criticism, or folx like me getting tired of seeing her from time to time. But for every one person that's probably tired of seeing her, there are five people that are craving for more...... I would prefer if she didn't play Angela Davis...just a personal preference...but other than that, go on head girl. ...as I do research for a paper and am reminded of the gross levels of social inequality and poverty that exist around the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa...where folx depend on emergency food aid just to eat one meal a day....Beyonce and her 'iconic' status fade into black...... PEACE.

[quote comment="437997"]@ Miss Golden: You completely misread one of my many points. No one is saying that she should stop doing what she loves. But she can take a break from it to perfect something that she's aspiring be "great at". Acting isn't an art that you can mulititask with other careers. And if you are saying that one of your ultimate goals is to win an Oscar and a Tony, then you need to respect the art and dedicate time and training to achieve it. Because of her success in music her name has opened up doors outside of music. Her name can get her parts in movies but it can't win her an oscar. You have to have natural talent and be dedicated to the art. If you are going to shoot for the stars and put it out there that you want to win the highest award in acting, then you need to be focused on that.[/quote] How do you know that she is not doing just that? With each role that she takes she will become a little bit better.

Plenty of you can argue me down on this...but hey that's my opinion. In these economic times I'd like to see past the brand "beyonce" and see something more personal...more soulful. I'd like to see past the glamed up brand and see more of the person. She mentioned that she loves to paint in one of her interviews. Now she might not like to show her paintings...and that is her right. But how about working with kids and painting. Or hosting a New Orleans children's art festival. This would go past the brand name.[/quote] DID YOU JUST MISS THIS PART? She said she doing charity work such as working with women and children through shelters and organizations.

Loves it B! Honestly I can't even be mad at the chic for keepin her life EXTRA personal- she's Beyonce damnit and she knows the media will NEVER get enough. Somethings gotta remain sacred, damn! I love 95% of these looks, but her in that blue dress- she looks like a ghost on crack..just sayin'.

[quote comment="437343"]interesting, Beyonce seems darker in skin tone and hair color is dark on the blk mag. But on white folk mags shes lightest of light with super blonde hair.[/quote] Yeah i was JUST thinking that. Funny how shes wearing West African-looking traditional attire in the first pic & her hair is curly. Not to mention, is that the Black Power salute on the cover? She's a hypocrite. I know she has a stylist & she's versatile and what not. But damn, there is NO continuity. If anything, I see more white-ish Beyonce with the crazy blonde-like weaves more than the natural looking, Afrocentric Beyonce she's trying display herself as now. Just because she's on Ebony doesnt give her a right to act all "ebony". Then she'll be on ELLE mag next month wearing a friggin' crazy blonde weave, with her skin looking bleached out & airbrushed as ever.

This would go past the brand name.[/quote] I'm typing this with no shade just logic. Beyonce isn't oversaturating anything, she's just using her God given talents, and working hard for it. You work hard using your education whatever level it is, every single day to make MONEY. Everyone works to make money, Beyonce is performing and doing what she loves. People who are out of work may think you're oversaturating the market, but you're not going to quit doing what you love to satisfy those who hate on you or who don't like you would u? The answer is no. So why expect Beyonce to do the same? She's talented, and hardworking to a lot of her fans, even non fans, so why should she stop doing what she do at the young age of 27 because people are tired of seeing her? These are the same people who go to blogs that she's on to purposely see her, or listen to full songs and watch videos. She's not making you do it. You don't have to go on these sites, but you choose to. You can watch t.v, without her on it, unless she's hosting the Nightly News too. She must be doing something right to have ppl like you still commenting. You wouldn't stop doing what you love, and how you like to do it, because others don't want to see you?? So why should she? She's going to keep performing and doing what she loves in the world as she should. She's only 27. Everybody should see themselves as a brand to market themselves effectively, so theres nothing wrong with building yourself up. Leadership seminars everywhere teach this, why shouldn't Beyonce perform and do endorsements when she's in high demand. You mention what you'd like to see her do, yet she's oversaturated. It cant' be both ways. Just throwing some logic in there somewhere. Whether you're a fan or stan, I can't imagine why some would want another person to stop doing what they love, even though you continue to follow them. Interesting

ICONIC: The word iconic is a

ICONIC: The word iconic is a term used in a wide number of contexts for an image, picture, or representation; It is a sign or likeness that stands for an object by signifying or representing it either concretely or by analogy; An icon is a religious work of art, most commonly a painting, from Eastern Orthodox Christianity; Icon is also used, particularly in modern culture, in the general sense of symbol — i.e. a name, face, picture, edifice or even a person readily recognized as having some well-known significance or embodying certain qualities: one thing, an image or depiction, that represents something else of greater significance through literal or figurative meaning, usually associated with religious, cultural, political, or economic standing. THEY SAY YOU SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR BECAUSE YOU JUST MAY GET IT. This, unfortunately, applies to Beyonce. She wished for and announced to the world her desire to be iconic and now she actually is iconic, but she is iconic in this way: She is known for, and symbolic worldwide as a black female vocal star who entertains by over-the-top singing, winding, grinding, coochie popping, lap dancing, and leg-spreading. She is also known for lying, jacking, boasting, exposing her nipples and crotch, and insulting people's intelligence with her transparent manipulations while simultaneously claiming to be humble and grounded. She has accomplished her goal - but she is an icon of bad taste and poor judgment. There are many things about Beyonce that compliment her as a person and entertainer and that she is known for having or doing however, she is not iconic for those things and they have all long been represented and made iconic by women who preceded her. This not about hate or love. This is about keeping it real - not being mean and not putting blinders on. It is what it is. Beyonce wants to have her cake and eat it too, but she can't. She chose the behavior and the consequence is that that is what she will forever be known for.

The third to last pic of Beyonce (her in the black corsette) is the ultimate fabulous. It's by far my favorite pick of her. She looks beautiful, poised, and it has a more sincere feel to it.

I just wish she would slow down a bit and maybe take some more acting classes to better her skills.[/quote] IMO people make them selves tired of her or any other celebrity for that matter because she's not on tv like that (except during promo time) and the only time there's too much Beyonce is on blogs they post something about her everyday in like 2 to 3 different post because they know it will get alot of hits from fans and haters who always seem to find thier way in there after they claim to be tired of her or claim she's over exposed, If I don't like something or someone (50 cent) I don't click on their post or if I know they're promoting I stay clear from the blogs that I know will over do it JMO

I'm sorry but there is such a

I'm sorry but there is such a thing as over saturation and I believe beyonce has over saturated the market. When you do this you devalue your brand...or it eventually becomes devalued. I'm all for her wanting to be iconic. If it is your dream to win grammys, oscars, and a tony award...hey more power to you. But you have to be true to it. She's already proven herself in music (I don't like her music but many can argue me down). She can afford to fall back for a few years on music and dedicate her time to perfecting her acting...which needs A LOT of help. If she is serious about acting the best thing to do is to study and go into theater. Theater in my opinion is where you learn the basics of acting techniques that can transfer well on to screen. It is also a great path to getting credibility. Now there are some singers who are naturally good actresses...beyonce isn't one of them and she needs to work hard on that craft. Of course she's not going anywhere...she was trained since she was a child for this...singing and performing on stage is what she knows. And it has proven to be good for her. But she should be dedicating the same amount of time and training to acting...she can afford to. I used to be a fan...back in early DC...but now I am just really tired of her. Yes she's pretty, and takes great pictures, she makes great catchy club music...but what else? She says that she is inspired by love. Ok..I don't see it and I don't feel it. I feel that she is inspired by money. I don't see her for the person that she is...I see her as a brand, over saturating the market for the love of money. Plenty of you can argue me down on this...but hey that's my opinion. In these economic times I'd like to see past the brand "beyonce" and see something more personal...more soulful. I'd like to see past the glamed up brand and see more of the person. She mentioned that she loves to paint in one of her interviews. Now she might not like to show her paintings...and that is her right. But how about working with kids and painting. Or hosting a New Orleans children's art festival. This would go past the brand name.

Beyonce looks great! The

Beyonce looks great! The cover is def fab. Love the natural look of the photoshoot. That black and white dress is gogeous. The hair is on point as well. She should rock that. Ebony and Bey did it with this shoot! I don't understand why some wish she would slow down. Are you successful at any of your careers? Would you slow down so someone else could get the promotion? No. I think if it's put in that perspective some may see how silly it sounds. There's nothing wrong with wanting and striving to be the best you can be in your field. Beyonce is def. doing that and represents well. She's talented, and an overall great artist. I know I strive for the best in my life, so I just wish the best for Beyonce. Someone said a "real woman' wouldn't try to be an icon? Are you kidding me? That is the true definition of shade and hate. Who are you to hold someone back from their dreams.....brighten up your life and reach higher seriously.

She looks really reallly

She looks really reallly good...one of the best spreads of her i've seen in a while...love that hair, it suits her really well...and i think it's only a matter of time before she gets that oscar cuz the girl can act...and i agree with her decision to keep be personal life to herself...it ain't our business. And i'm glad she's not retiring soon cuz we need home gurl Bey to turn things up and to always bring something different...u can definitely see the growth and the passion...she loves what she does, and that's rare in some artists these days...KEEP DOIN IT BEY. And ya'll haters.....really? I mean really?
