Beyonce Interview in the February 2010 Issue of Allure

Fierce Beyonce Is Ready to Pounce in February's Allure

Beyonce Knowles strikes a serious pose on the cover of February's US Allure. After ringing in the new year in St. Bart's with hubby Jay-Z, B's getting back to work on her music and a new fragrance, Heat. She'll also head to the Grammys later this month, where she's up for 10 awards including album of the year. As for her alter-ego Sasha Fierce, Beyonce says she doesn't need her anymore. Check out some other photos from her shoot here, her style through the years and interview highlights:

  • On Sasha Fierce: “Sasha Fierce is my alter ego, this other side of me that’s almost animalistic and strong and fearless, and I have used this person to take over when I’m too scared or too shy. The thing that’s interesting is I don’t need Sasha Fierce anymore, because I’ve grown, and I’m now able to merge the two. I want people to see me. I want people to see who I am.”
  • On keeping her personal life private: “I feel that I was born to entertain, but I want my music and my talent to speak for themselves, I don’t want my personal life, my mistakes, or my marriage or whatever to interfere when I’m on the stage. It’s when I feel the most confident, the most in control.”
  • On her body shape: “I always say, ‘I don’t want to lose my curves,’ I like firm curves. You can never do enough squats, you can never do enough sit-ups. But as far as losing too much weight or building too much muscle...I like for women to look feminine.”
