Beyoncè is featured in the the ‘Califuk’ issue of Flaunt Magazine where she appears au naturel in several hot poses.
The mag describes Queen B, their latest cover star, as follows:
There she sits, unwilling at the moment to invite distraction of the fundamental mission of her rule: to shape culture, to inspire the hip parade as well as the fringe, to rehearse, rehearse, rehearse, to drop filthy, filthy tracks on this swelling, warring, cap-melting planet. To make an impact.

Beyoncè Knowles-Carter snags the coveted September cover of Vogue Magazine.
This is Queen B’s third time on the cover of the fashion bible but it’s only the third time a Black woman has covered the SEPTEMBER issue (Beyonce follows Naomi Campbell in 1989 and Halle Berry in 2010).
Beyoncé rocks the cover shot in a gown designed by Marc Jacobs, who describes the musical icon as a loveable ‘Diva’. Jacobs states:
The word diva is used for so many female performers, and it often means they have reputations for being difficult, but she exudes charm and a lovable quality.

Welp… another day, another example of the power of social media! I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve been tagged online about this recent incident involving Beyoncè dress designer Michael Costello!
There’s a young woman online claiming that the “Project Runway” designer, who has designed gowns worn by Beyoncé, Tamar Braxton & more has used several racial slurs online and off.
Last October, online boutique owner Maxine James blasted Costello in an instagram post, stating that he’d purchased one of her custom designs then shared it with his followers as if it were his own creation.
[Sidebar: This seems to be a pretty common practice nowadays. CLICK HERE to read about K. Whasserface, who just got blasted for the same thing! But I digress]
Costello allegedly took the matter offline recently when he confronted the up & coming designer in person, referring to her in a derogatory manner yet again. James claims that when she tried to tape the incident, Costello broke her phone! Now, James has posted a long diatribe that includes video of a witness who claims to have seen it all go down between James & Costello in his LA fabric store:
Today Michael Costello approached me at a local fabric store while I was sitting waiting on my fabric, walked up to me attacked me with all sorts of insults, Called me a “Nigger” to my face… Physically Snatched my phone out of my hand and threw it out the window leaving my phone shattered to pieces.

is not the only one seeking comfortable underwear these days. While Queen B’s pic is being used for demonstrative purposes only, it seems that younger women these days prefer to rock granny panties more than just that one special week a month.
A new study shows that there’s a young generation of women who have discovered a brand new kinda ‘sexy’ in the most unlikely of places: their grandmothers’ underwear drawers!
“When I walk into a lingerie store, I’m always like, ‘O.K., which drawer in here is for the grannies?’ ” Daphne Javitch, 35, said of her predilection for ample-bottomed undies.
That preference led Ms. Javitch, back in 2010, to found Ten Undies, a line with a cult following that sells cotton full-bottom bikinis, boy shorts and high-waist briefs not unlike the kind immortalized in “Bridget Jones’s Diary.” (“Hello, mommy.”) Ten’s wares are comfortable and practical, to be sure, but that’s hardly the only draw.
Apparently sales of thongs have dropped 7% over the past year and the study shows tat sales of underwear styles offering more coverage (i.e. ‘granny panties) have actually increased 17% during the same time period.
