The cover is definitely revealing, as the 31-year old singer can be seen flaunting her body in a tight athletic T-shirt, an obvious ode to her forthcoming Super Bowl appearance, while also wearing a pair of red leopard panties.
Upon the release of the image, the online world hasn’t stopped talking about the shot, with the dialogue being both positive and critical at the same time.
Read below to hear what everyone is saying.
“Beautiful woman; however, trying to be everything to everybody. She wants Rihanna's fan base, Shakira's fan base, etc. Too thirsty.” – Bee1, GQ.com
“Beyonce has been photoshopped to death on that cover and her body is not shaped like that. It's shaped better. I know black people come in all shades, but she looks very white on that cover. Does the media actually thinks a woman's body is flawless right after she gives birth? I mean every time there is a famous new mother in public, the media goes on and on how perfect she looks a few months after giving birth! When Beyonce appeared in public about three months after her baby was born, the media talked as if her body looked like Barbie's underneath those clothes. I bet Celebrities even get a kick out of that.” – Simba216, HuffingtonPost.com
