On yesterday (Tuesday, January 8), Instagram and Twitter were in a frenzy as a sexy picture of a scantily clad Beyoncé Knowles Carter made its rounds across the 'net. Teased as the upcoming February 2013 cover of GQ magazine, the singer posed provocatively in red and black leopard panties and a blue and white cut off shirt. Due to the overwhelming response the leaked picture caused, GQ took to their website to confirm its validity and tease - there is more to come.

Continuing in her quest to dominate 2013 after a brief hiatus - due to the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy - it was announced that Queen Bey will join Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor as performers for President Obama's inauguration on January 21. The singer is also set to take the stage as the halftime performer for Super Bowl XLVII February 3 on CBS. Speaking of the highly-anticipated performance, CBS Chief Les Moonves shared, "She's been great for awhile, but it feels like the timing couldn't be better. With her, and the baby, and Jay-Z, and what they represent -- plus she's at the height of her musical career, so we're really excited!" Looks like Beyoncé is gearing up to reclaim her crown.
