Beyoncé: The hottest woman of the 21st century!

With less than a month until her Super Bowl halftime performance, we’ve been patiently waiting for the Beyoncé promotional storm to hit. Well, praise the heavens because she is finally back in our lives in the form of a jaw-dropping GQ cover.

Shot by the ever popular and ever creepy Terry Richardson, Beyoncé just looks stunning. In fact, there aren’t even enough adjectives for gorgeous to describe how we feel about this cover. The Nike crop-top, the Agent Provocateur panties, the Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, the big hair, IT’S ALL PERFECT.

In typical Beyoncé fashion, her quotes are just pure … Beyoncé. Who else can say with a straight face, “I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.” Oh, Bey. Never change.

As to her upcoming Super Bowl performance, she said, “One of the reasons I connect to the Super Bowl is that I approach my shows like an athlete,” she says now. “You know how they sit down and watch whoever they’re going to play and study themselves? That’s how I treat this. I watch my performances, and I wish I could just enjoy them, but I see the light that was late. I see, ‘Oh God, that hair did not work.’ Or ‘I should never do that again.’ I try to perfect myself. I want to grow, and I’m always eager for new information.”

This coupled with rumors of a new single and a potential Destiny’s Child reunion is just enough to push us over the edge. What did we do to deserve such gifts?
