BEYONCE DOES VOGUE, TALKS NEW EMPOWERING ALBUM & MORE / by


Beyonce, What more can we say? The singer is now gracing the cover of Vogue. The March issue will hit stands later this month. She's fresh from her Super Bowl performance, and now were less than a week away from her Oprah interview as well as her HBO documentary "Life Is But A Dream".

In Vogue, she dished on her new album and it's direction. She indicted that it's a mere cross between "I Am...Sasha Fierce" and "4" but more sensual and empowering. Below you can check out some snippets of the interview where she talks more about Blue Ivy and the full spread.



And if fans want a hint of what to expect, she described the new project to Vogue as a mix of 4 and I Am ... Sasha Fierce, calling it "a lot more sensual" and "empowering" than her previous music, thanks to motherhood.


"Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body," she told the mag. "I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman; more feminine, more sensual. And no shame."


Bey recorded new music at her leisure in the Hamptons, New York, last summer while baby Blue Ivy was still only a few months old. Collaborators, who include Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, were invited to live family-style with the Carters while they worked. 

"We had dinners with the producers every day, like a family," she explained of her approach with husband Jay-Z. "It was like a camp — weekends off. You could go and jump in the pool and ride bikes ... the ocean and grass and sunshine. ... It was really a safe place."


Her good pal Gwyneth Paltrow recalls the magic of it all, noting that they made sure to keep the volume at a reasonable level whenever Blue was hanging with mom. "Blue was sleeping in her arms, across her body, and B was listening back to what she had been working on," the actress detailed. "I thought, 'This is how you do it. You do what you love with who you love included.' "


Whenever the album does arrive, it will surely continue the very personal tale that Bey plans to share in "Life Is but a Dream." "This movie has healed me in so many ways," she says of the upcoming special. "It makes me want to cry."
