Beyonce Knowles strips off her clothes to show off her hourglass figure for a magazine's editorial. The songstress strikes a series of sultry poses wearing nothing but bronze glitters. When the glitters are not there, she goes tribal with body paints splattered all over her bare skin.
The pictures were actually taken by photographer Tony Duran in 2011 as part of her Year of 4 album campaign, but it didn't emerge until recently in the latest issue of Flaunt magazine. They came along with a profile story that included Bey addressing criticisms at her Pepsi commercial.
Some people claimed her appearance on the ad clashed with her support for child obesity, but Bey says, "When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it's great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It's all about choices."
The mother of one who is famously private about her relationship with Jay-Z explains that though she chooses "to keep certain aspects" of her life private, she enjoys letting fans in on her life in other ways. "I also love sharing what makes me happy, especially through photography," she says.
