Beyonce shows off her curves in the latest issue FLAUNT magazine, rocking nothing but confidence and glitter. Photographed by Tony Duran, the stunning images capture the international superstar’s voluptuous body decorated in dramatic makeup and body paint.

The interview shares a fun side of the 31-year-old. She speaks about her thoughts on being a gay icon, the criticism surrounding her Pepsi deal and her love for photography.

Gay men are drawn to you and empowered by you, as they have been to “gay icons” Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Cher, and Madonna. What is it about you, and those women, that gay men love?
