Beyoncé gets patriotic on the cover of BEAT magazine‘s winter issue in a red and white-striped swimsuit and red cropped hoodie with an American flag waving in the background.

We’re not entirely sure whether Bey gave an actual interview (or even a word association piece) for the London glossy, but they are clearly stoked:

She sneezed on the BEAT and the BEAT got sicker…

Shot by photographer Ryan McGinley in the Hamptons, the site said the cover image “encapsulates everything everyone loves about Beyoncé: Unfeasibly, almost disarmingly, cool. Strong. Bold. Empowered.”


UK residents can pick up the issue on newsstands October 21 for free — the rest of us can purchase online here.
