Beyoncè covers VOGUE’s September 2018 edition and several of the highly anticipated images have finally been released.
The 36-year-old superstar was given unprecedented control over Vogue’s September issue—with editor in chief Anna Wintour’s blessing, of course. From selecting 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell to be the first black man to shoot the magazine’s cover in it’s 126 year history, to writing personal essays detailing her personal and professional failures and triumphs, she left no stone unturned.

In the issue, the superstar also opens up about embracing her curvier post-pregnancy body.
The 36-year-old pop icon admitted she has a “little FUPA” after giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir Carter last June, but she loves her fuller figure and thinks it’s “real.”
I don’t like too much structure. I like to be free. I’m not alive unless I am creating something. I’m not happy if I’m not creating, if I’m not dreaming, if I’m not creating a dream and making it into something real. I’m not happy if I’m not improving, evolving, moving forward, inspiring, teaching, and learning.
There are many shades on every journey. Nothing is black or white. I’ve been through hell and back, and I’m grateful for every scar. I have experienced betrayals and heartbreaks in many forms. I have had disappointments in business partnerships as well as personal ones, and they all left me feeling neglected, lost, and vulnerable. Through it all I have learned to laugh and cry and grow. I look at the woman I was in my 20s and I see a young lady growing into confidence but intent on pleasing everyone around her. I now feel so much more beautiful, so much sexier, so much more interesting. And so much more powerful.
