An Instagram photo of GQ’s February cover of Beyonce as the “100 Sexiest Women of the 21st Century” was reported leaked online today, showing the singer in a revealing pose wearing a midriff-baring sports jersey and a pair of red and black leopard print panties.
The sexy shot teases the magazine’s “Sexiest Women of the Decade” list. And Beyonce’s cover slot implies she may be their no. 1 draft pick, if GQ works anything like People magazine’s Sexiest Man issues.
Some fans have expressed doubt about the cover’s authenticity, in part because the photo is not terribly flattering. But that might be because of the angle of the photo, making her hips appear much larger and her head much smaller.
So far there is no official confirmation from the magazine as to the cover’s veracity. Nonetheless, on it, Beyonce is wearing a Madalyn leopard print silk jacquard brief ($395) sold on Agent Provocateur, not including the matching garter belt suspender.
Beyonce is the second female singer in months to sell the men’s mag, with Rihanna landing the cover and a sexy pictorial in the “Men of the Year” issue in November.
Beyonce has another big moment coming up, performing at the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII halftime show. Then there is her upcoming fifth studio album.
Singer-songwriter-producer and Beyonce-collaborator The-Dream recently revealed to Billboard that fans can expect some new Beyonce music, at least one single, perhaps two, before the big game on February 3.
“I’m sure there will probably be a couple records you hear before the Super Bowl gets here,” he told the music industry magazine. The-Dream, who’s “involved in every part of the process” behind the new album, is joined by collaborators Ne-Yo and Miguel.
