Beyoncé rocks a Marilyn Monroe inspired theme in this months issue of ‘Out’ magazine.

The superstar discusses the power in owning sexuality, and double standards between men and women.

In the candid interview, Beyoncé proclaims:

“There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that.”

“You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist – whatever you want to be – and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.”
