Beyoncé Named People’s ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’

Beyoncé

Beyoncé has won countless awards, and now she has a new honor to add to her résumé. The pop superstar, wife, and mother has been crowned the World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People magazine.

“I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth,” said Beyoncé, who graces the magazine’s cover. “I’m very honored and it means more to me that I was named this after I became a mother.”

The 30-year-old singer, who gave birth in January, was glowing as she spoke about her daughter Blue Ivy Carter. “The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy,” she explained. “The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.”

She showed off her post-baby body in a photo shoot with famed photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino. “It’s really about who you are, the human being, that makes you beautiful,” said B, who named her mother as the most beautiful woman in the world.

“I know that women are like fine wine and we get better with age and she’s just such a glamorous, sophisticated, classy, gentle, beautiful woman.”

Other women making this year’s list include Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Selena Gomez.

    She atleast should have took all that weave out so we can see ALL of her since she cosigns the “most beautiful” title :/ All honesty, Kelly Rowland looks 1000000X better than Bey

    So all she had to do was get knocked up to be the most beautiful woman. She is beautiful but she not the most beautiful. Rosario Dawson, Zoe Saldana, Alicia Keys, Halle Berry, and Paula Patton are all more beautiful than Beyonce.

    It seems a bit pretentious to call someone the most beautiful…I’m glad the hosts cleared up the misconception that she beat out everybody and mentioned the other men and women…otherwise I don’t think I would’ve payed too much attention.

    Beauty is way too complex to say that only one person embodies all of its elements. And I’m not saying that to take anything away from B…not like I can anyway… but to say she is THEE most beautiful seems kind of biased.

    At any rate, beyonce seems real cool. I like the last unedited part they put in. It’s nice to see her when she’s just being herself.

    @brainfood.com, How is it biased?

    [Reply]

    brainfood.com Reply:

    @KillBill92,

    Well, I think it’s biased (which it is, that’s why it’s called “People’s Magazines Most Beautiful”) because, like I mentioned before, beauty is to multi-faceted to be put into one body.

    The imperfections of some women are the very things that make them stand out and be seen by some as beautiful…if we were to base beauty ONLY on these imperfections, and Beyonce didn’t have them, she wouldn’t make the cut….but that’s not to say she’s not beautiful because she is…but if we were to base beauty only on a list of say 3 things, and Beyonce didn’t possess any of them, she wouldn’t be considered beautiful.

    I hate to be cliche, beauty is nd has always been in the eye of the beholder…I guess the beholder is People for this list. I might have included Princess Toadstool, but I like NIntendo. To each his/her own, I guess.

    If we’re talking about being biased then we should get into people’s magazine only featuring celebrities . Right ? Sounds slow to me .

    brainfood.com Reply:

    @RealIssh,

    ??? I guess I don’t understand what you are saying.

    I’m not saying B ain’t got it goin’ on. I’d Be kind of blind not to give cred where it’s due…childish too…

    …but I refuse to believe that a cultured person – by cultured I mean someone who’s seen all kinds of faces of beauty — can say that only ONE person has EVERY definition of beauty. Think about it…beauty would be kind of boring if it only had ONE face, don’t ya think?

    Now before you go ape sh!t, please hear me when I type this…I AM NOT SAYING BEYONCE ISN’T BEAUTIFUL! BUT, I’m not buying this most beautiful crap. It’s small minded to think that beauty only has ONE face. If People magazine feels that, that’s cool, but I’ve seen too many beautiful women HOLDIN’ DOWN the fort WITH 3+ CHILDREN, their careers, love life, and social life in check…and they STILL only make up a percentage of what God has created to be beautiful in this world.

    And If you think that only ONE face can define the jugernaut-sized definition that is “true beauty,” you should really get out and travel so that you can see all the different images of what beauty looks like. Even Beyonce said she didn’t make the cut like her little one did!

    It’s all about whose talkin’…and that’s why I think it’s biased. Hell, I KNOW my baby girl is thee most beautiful in the world…and she KNOWS I’m the most beautiful mama in the world, but as we both know, there are other’s who would throw a few of their choices in the list in front of me. Alas, my point. Beauty is too complex to only have one face or look.

    @brainfood.com, I’m agreeing w/ what you’re saying but its not “biased” .

    The most beautiful woman in the world might not be a celebrity or even physically attractive at all . However , People’s Magazine WANTED a woman that’s a celebrity and physically attractive .

    So Beyonce is beautiful because she wears a blonde wig and has light skin. Beyonce is also mixed race or have people forgotten? I guess for People’s Magazine in order to be on their cover a woman has to white or part white to make it.

    the reason that the picked her is for her ability to sell magazines. there is no question that she is beautiful, but there are more physically attractive people in hollywood, but to me beyonce doesnt deserve this award. to me beauty comes from within, and beyonce seems to be self absorbed. i never hear about beyonce helping a charity or raising money for some worthy cause, and to me that is what makes someone gorgeous

    Beyonce is okay or mediocre at best. Most of these commenters sound like a pack of worshipping fools to me. She’s okay; I would call her nice-looking, not quite even pretty. Her money makes you people act this way. Please pump your breaks. Just how unattractive must YOU be to think like this?
