Beyonce is seen nude in several of the photos including the magazine’s cover feature. She has had her body covered in bronze and multi-colour glitter for the shots which are probably her most revealing photos so far.
The sexy photos were taken by Tony Duran in 2011 as part of the promotional work for her Year of 4 album and have been kept secret until now.
As well as the revealing photos Flaunt also carries an interview with Beyonce in which she discusses amongst other things what food and drink she enjoys. She has received some criticism for her relationship with soft drinks manufacturer Pepsi but is happy to stand up for the company and unlike a lot of celebrity endorsements it seems that this is a case where she actually likes the drink.
‘Pepsi is a brand I’ve grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry.’
‘I wouldn’t encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance. When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it’s great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It’s all about choices.’
The singer also talks about some of her charity work in particular her involvement with Chime For Change, which deals with the issue of female empowerment. The charity is currently benefiting from the release of 5 short films that were first seen as part of the special Chime For Change concert at Twickenham last month.
As well as Beyonce the charity also features input from Salma Hayek and Gucci;s Creative Director Frida Giannini.
