Beyonce was on the cover of the latest issue of Flaunt Magazine where she is pictured naked and covered in glitter.
While the photos were taken in 2011, the pictures are just now being published.
During the interview, she discussed being a "gay icon" like Cher, Madonna and Barbara Streisand.
"I'm flattered if I'm in the company of those great women. I think they love that we are bold, unafraid to love, and flaunt our sexuality and strength," she said.
Asked what she would take on a picnic, she answered, "A cozy blanket, red wine, fruit, '90s R&B playing on my iPod. I don't think you need much else."
She also discussed being philanthropic. She donated a quarter of a million to Hurricane Katrina relief, helped raise $1 million for Haiti after the earthquake, and recently signed on to Gucci's Chime for Change campaign.
