Photos and Quotes from Beyonce Knowles in Vogue
Beyonce Has No Issues About Her Shape in Vogue

Beyonce Knowles is the cover girl for Vogue's 2009 shape issue, and she took a break from preparing for her upcoming tour to chat with the magazine about the many aspects of her life. She opened up about her marriage to Jay-Z, being a role model and digging deep for her character in her new film Obsessed. Here are highlights:

  • On thanking Michelle Obama for inviting her to sing at Inauguration: "She told me she was very happy that her girls have someone like me to look up to. And I'm like, 'Oh, my God.' You have to feel fortunate to be one of the people whom parents don't mind their children looking up to. The older I get, the more I think about the amount of influence I have on these young girls, and it's scary sometimes. But I also understand how lucky I am to have that."
  • On being a happy person, yet acting mad in Obsessed: "Everyone has it in them. You know what's so great? I have made the choice — because it does take effort — to be happy. I mean, I am happy. But it's hard. Sometimes. . . you don't want to be that way. And holding all of that stuff in, holding the anger in and always being so composed. . . it was so great for me to be able to release everything. Imagine! I always have to be so put together, I always have to be pleasant. But sometimes I want to scream and holler, and I'm able to use the characters to release whatever pain or frustration has built up in me."
  • On what she's learned from Jay-Z: "I definitely have learned to be a little more picky from Jay. Because if something makes a lot of sense to everyone else, if he doesn't feel it, he's like, 'I don't want to talk about it.' Which is great."

She's kind of annoying now.She always out some where.I'm sick of seeing her.I have no idea what the hell she's talking about in the last quote.Maybe it's taken out of context or something along the lines.I agree mar and tuscanstellina.

I'm sorry, but she just bugs me. She tries hard to come off as mature and deep in every interview she does and it just comes across to me as insincere. I don't think she is being honest with herself on her own thoughts and feelings. She's just trying to impress, it seems.

She look great. I don't know what she meant by that last quote... Is a complete quote or taken out of its context? I don't get it.

Vogue should always style her. She doesn't look her usual cheap and tacky self. I like these pictures a lot :) What she said doesn't make a lot of sense to me but maybe Jay-Z just doesn't like to argue

my thoughts exactly...i would hate to be with someone who says "i don't want to talk about" because he's not "feeling" something....that would annoy the hell out of me.

"Because if something makes a lot of sense to everyone else, if he doesn't feel it, he's like, 'I don't want to talk about it.' Which is great." Um...OK. No idea what this means. Assuming it's another example of celebs trying to sound deeper than they are. Yeah, it's GREAT not to talk about things and to shut off.

well i think that beyonce is far more mature than her years - and that's a good thing i think. she's got great role models, and therefore can be a great role model and it's not often in the world that you find that.
