It's no Megan Fox photo spread in Elle.
But Beyonce covers the latest issue of Marie Claire and she looks mighty fine doing so.
Inside the magazine, the singer is asked about her hit song “Single Ladies”, revealing that it's meant to empower both men and women:
“More than anything, the song celebrates being single. It’s like, if you’ve been doing all you can and it’s not happening for you, go out and have you a good old time. Put on your sexy dress and move on. I know I’m stronger in the songs than I really am. Sometimes I need to hear it myself. We all need to hear those empowering songs to remind us.”
