Beyonce covers OUT Magazine’s Power issue, which hits newsstands April 22. At the helm of one of the biggest personal brands ever, Bey discusses being a businesswoman, creating an honest album and the troubles woman still face when it comes to sexual equality.
“There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality,” she says. “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.”
