Beyoncé Talks Blue's Future and Being Mrs. Carter in British Vogue

Beyoncé Knowles bares her midriff in a striped crop top, paired with a sequinned skirt, on her first-ever cover of British Vogue. Although she is busy gearing up for her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, Beyoncé recently took on a new role as the face of clothing brand H&M, adding the appointment to her already big year of accomplishments, which also includes a Super Bowl half-time show and a performance at the presidential inauguration.

On her fifth wedding anniversary with husband Jay-Z, Beyoncé opens up about what it means to be Mrs. Carter and a modern feminist. She also hints at her hopes for her 1-year-old daughter, Blue Carter, inside the May 2013 issue. Here is more from Beyoncé in British Vogue:

  • On her message of female empowerment: "Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I'm just a woman and I love being a woman. If you're attractive then you can't be sexy, and you can't be intelligent? What is all of that? . . . I don't know [if I'd call myself a feminist]. That word can be very extreme. But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality, and that we have a ways to go and it's something that's pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept. But I'm happily married. I love my husband."
  • On being Mrs. Carter: "I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I've ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, 'OK, this is what you were born to do.' The purpose of my body became completely different. The way I view it and everything. There's a sensuality and an audacity that I'm OK with sharing. And I'm not uncomfortable about it. I'm not shy about it. And I feel like it's important for women not to lose that sense of sensuality."
  • On whether she sees her daughter following in her footsteps: "I hope she figures it out . . . Whatever makes her happy, I'm there. I do feel like I'm going to be honest with my daughter. I definitely want my daughter to have goals and drive and passion — it has to be a balance . . . Right now, she just likes tempo. She likes salsa — anything with a beat. Which makes sense because I was on tour when I was pregnant, and then I went on to her dad's tour and the 808 was probably shaking the womb . . ."
