Beyonce has the cover (and very naked editorial) of Flaunt‘s July issue–inside, she wears nothing but glitter, body paint and a spot of jewelry.
The accompanying Q&A is about as fluffy as such things can be (she’s an icon! millennials love her! she’s an Instagram perfectionist! what’s up with gluten anyway?) but Flaunt did manage to ask her about that possibly deeply hypocritical Pepsi endorsement…
Some were critical at your participating in a Pepsi campaign after you moved your body for childhood obesity. Where is the balance between your career objectives and your philanthropy?
Pepsi is a brand I’ve grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn’t encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance.
When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it’s great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It’s all about choices.
Buy Pepsi. Drink Beyonce.
Among other softballs, they asked her what someone should pack for a sexy picnic:
Flaunt: A picnic planner is hoping to get lucky with his/her picnic companion. What’s in the picnic basket?
Beyoncé: A cozy blanket, red wine, fruit, ’90s R&B playing on my iPod. I don’t think you need much else.
