Beyonce Featured In Vogue's "Power" March 2013 Issue 8

The Age Of Beyoncé: Resistance Is Futile [Vogue Video]

One day, 2013 will become known as the Age of Beyoncé, a time when all things were seen through the prism of the Houston native’s vision. And, as luck would have it, Vogue were there to get the shots.

With an already legendary Super Bowl halftime performance under her belt, fittingly the 31-year-old now graces her second cover of US Vogue magazine for their March “power” themed 2013 issue.

In the accompanying story, Beyoncé opens up about giving birth to her first child, Blue Ivy, Internet rumors, having more children, her album, and how becoming a mother changed her.

Endearingly, the singer describes her daughter as: “[She’s] my road dog. She’s my homey, my best friend,” before revealing the extraordinary connection she felt during labor:

“I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door and I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain … We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”

On family: “I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more. Family has always been important. I’ve always had my mother and my father and my husband. But it’s just, life is so much more than … It’s not defined by any of this.”

On not reading vicious comments about herself: “Don’t scroll down!You’re definitely going to get your feelings hurt.”
