Beyoncé Knowles goes platinum blonde and channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Out magazine’s May 2014 issue. The 32-year-old superstar has spoken about sexuality, feminism and self expression.
‘There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.’
