Bey-hold, it’s a bright, shiny new year! So to kick it off, let’s take a hearty look at the best thing that happened last year / ever at BEAT. Yes that’s right, we are throwing it all the way back to that time Beyoncé was on the cover of BEAT. I mean, can you even believe that Ryan McGinley shot her for us, wearing a swimming costume with our logo on it and holding a chicken? Cuz I can’t. If you haven’t seen an actual issue yet – they are available here.
So if, like Adele, your “main priority in life” is Beyoncé then here it is, the only interview with Queen B in the last two years!!
Beyoncé sneezed on the BEAT and the BEAT got sicker…
