Beyoncé Covers BEAT Magazine

Hail to the queen. Beyoncé gets patriotic for Issue #16 of U.K. magazine BEAT.

Shot by Ryan McGinley in the Hamptons, the cover shows the “American fu**ing idol” by the shore, decked out in a red hoodie and red-and-white-striped swimsuit, while a giant American flag waves in the background.

Fresh from her Hamptons shoot, Beyoncé will headline the TIDAL X: 1020 concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Oct. 20. The all-star lineup also includes Jay Z, Prince, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Lil Wayne, and T.I.

The issue of BEAT hits newsstands Oct. 21.
