The Queen of Pop Beyoncé graces not one but two covers of the latest issue of Elle to debut her new fashion line “Ivy Park“. The May cover girl gives a rare interview to the magazine speaking on marriage, empowerment and motherhood. However, the singer remained mum on when she’s releasing her next studio album but did chime in on the backlash of her latest single “Formation” and it’s presence at Superbowl 50 stating:
let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me.
The iconic singer also spoke in details about her latest fashion venture “Ivy Park” which is a women’s athletic line in collaboration with Top Shop and is named for her daughter Blue Ivy Carter. The issue (out April 6) features Beyoncé in a ‘Flash Dance’ inspired spread sporting big curls and mostly black and grey athletic apparel, here’s what she had to say about the new venture:
I was so specific about the things I feel I need in a garment as a curvy woman, and just as a woman in general, so you feel safe and covered but also sexy. Everything lifts and sucks in your waist and enhances the female form. We mixed in some features found in men’s sportswear that I wished were interpreted into girls’ clothes. We worked on the straps, making them more durable for maximum support.
