Beyonce Knowles Covers June 2009 Marie-Claire Magazine

27 year old Pop Singer Beyonce Knowles who is currently preparing to hit the road for the North American leg of her "I am" world tour has landed the cover of Marie Claire Magazine's June 2009 issue. Jay-Z's wifey is having a fantastic month as she also covers the June 2009 German issue of Glamour Magazine!

The Marie Claire article carries the following tagline:

She Is Legend. Beyoncé Knowles is making the most of her moment, mounting a 110-city tour in 6-inch heels. What keeps her going? The answer is—literally—written on her fingernails.

My favourite piece:

I catch a glimpse of some sort of black lettering on the silver acrylic nails on her left hand. "Can I see?" I ask. And suddenly Beyoncé becomes bashful. "It's nothing," she says, letting her left hand slip below the table and out of sight. "They're just reminders," she offers."Reminders of what, exactly?""Happiness," she says, with a coy tilt of her head. "They just make me smile when I'm working."
"Here," she says, finally offering her left hand, and blushing like the newlywed she is. Spelled out on her index, middle, and ring fingers are the appliquéd letters J-A-Y; on the thumb is a mini likeness of Mr. Beyoncé, Jay-Z, the world's preeminent rapper, wearing a cocked Yankees cap and a cocky smile. Beyoncé giggles at herself. "It's just a silly thing that makes me smile," she repeats. And then she's off to work.

In the Photoshoot, the Singer turned Actress models a few of the 58 outfits Thierry Mugler designed for her "I am" world tour. Designer Thierry Mugler was present to help out at the shoot, along with Thierry Mugler's team: assistant and Project Runway alum Chris March and director of style Yves Pagan. Knowles's wardrobe adviser (and mom) Tina was also there to survey gowns pulled by MC's Jenny Capitain.

When questioned about one of her newer hit singles 'All the single ladies', Beyonce had the following to say:

“More than anything, the song celebrates being single. It’s like, if you’ve been doing all you can and it’s not happening for you, go out and have you a good old time. Put on your sexy dress and move on. I know I’m stronger in the songs than I really am. Sometimes I need to hear it myself. We all need to hear those empowering songs to remind
