Beyonce is covering the new issue of Flaunt, but the photos are from 2011, so they are two years old. Even so, Bey sparkles and she's banging, coated in glittery, shimmery and sparkly body paint and nothing else.

It was an African-themed shoot. While the photos are old, the interview is new.

Bey doesn't talk music, but is said to discuss being a gay icon -- we weren't actually aware that she was a LGBT legend, since that's turf usually reserved for Madonna and Lady Gaga. The Queen also says that having Sunday pizza is a "must" in her life, which makes us happy, since she doesn't deny herself. She also loves plain white tees more than anything else in her expansive wardrobe.

She also admits her desire for privacy, saying, “I have chosen to keep certain aspects of my life private. But I also love sharing what makes me happy, especially through photography." Well, anyone who has peeped her Tumblr knows she keeps fans updated with lots and lots of images.

Queen Bey also confessed that she doesn't believe in reading books or magazines about learning how to please your significant other, saying, "If you have to read those lists, you’re already in trouble."

Aaaaaaaaamen, sister.

Now, without further pause, check out these bootylicious pics.

All that glitters is Beyonce.

The gilded goddess. Doesn't she look a bit like Mystique from 'X-Men?'
