Beyoncé (allegedly) covers the latest issue of Flaunt mag in all her glittery glory. We barely recognize Mrs. Carter on this cover, but we’re digging photog Tony Duran‘s work. Queen B also has a few words for all those grumps who have a problem with her hawking Pepsi. “Pepsi is a brand I’ve grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn’t encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance,” she tells them. “When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it’s great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It’s all about choices.” In other words…DO. NOT. MESS. WITH. CAFFEINE.
