Beyonce: A Catchy Word For Feminism – Bootylicious

Update-Beyonce landed the UK cover of Harper’s Bazaar while Glee star Lea Michele landed the US cover. Lea Michele is a relative newcomer but undeniably a breakout star out of the hit series Glee, so much so that she managed to beat out Beyonce for the US cover of Harper’s Bazaar. The September issue, as highlighted in the documentary of the same name, is the single most important issue of the year for any publishing house.

Glee has certainly done it’s damage as a breakout show while also spawning a few breakout stars, Lea included. And of course, Bey’s accolades are too many to mention. Though most important at the moment is releasing her fourth solo studio album, “4”. Beyonce covered a slew of other magazines while on her promotional tour. Any September cover is win for an artist and/or actress but it does make one wonder how Lea beat out Beyonce for the US cover. Though it’s fairly safe to assume neither lady is complaining much..Just our thoughts running wild.

Check out some excerpts from Lea’s interview.

On her career: “I don’t stop,” Lea says. “It’s my nature. People have to tell me to slow down. I plan on playing every role on Broadway. . . . I want to do movies, make music. Glee is only the beginning.”

On rumors that she’s a diva like her character: “People have to remember this is all new for us,” Lea says. “We’re all reasonably young, except for Cory [Monteith], who’s old.” (He’s 29.) “I’ve learned some lessons,” she continues. “But people are going to say what they want to say. I know who I am, and I’m not perfect.”

Beyonce as always been a advocate of girl power, with her most recent take with “Run the World, Girls”. In the issue Bey discussed what she thinks she be the new word to describe the women’s movement:

“I don’t really feel that it’s necessary to define it. It’s just something that’s kind of natural for me, and I feel like it’s what I live for. I need to find a catchy new word for feminism, right? Like Bootylicious.”

“There were a lot of women in the audience in burkas. They were singing along to Irreplaceable – it was amazing! Some of the men got really upset! They were like to their women, ‘We have to get you out of here!’… I guess some of them do get annoyed.”

Which cover and spread do you prefer – Lea Michele or Beyonce? And will you join Beyonce in crowing feminism as ‘Bootylicious’??

    I think Beyonce is STUNNING !! And that Lea Michele is NOT CLOSE to Beyonce’s gorgeous pics!

    Beyonce should have had BOTH covers, this is some nonsense…Lea is a who? versus Beyonce the ICON!

    I will buy the UK cover, and skip the US….they need to start putting BEAUTIFUL SUCCESSFUL INTERNATIONAL STARS on the US Cover….like BEYONCE!!

    Beyonce’s pictures are so stunning. I guess I’ll have to search out for the UK cover.

    She can get on all the covers she wants, but Rihanna is determined to steal her spotlight. That’s why she released all those decadent pics of her at that barbados celebration.

    Consider the spotlight NOT stolen….Beyonce’s Harper’s cover has a Ton more coverage in the news and net than a run of the mill pic of Rihanna being naked and lewd….that is ROUTINE,LOL! Beyonce is looking classy and high fashion…! Rihanna being naked is like saying Hell is hot and water is wet–no reason to look for most,but Beyonce’s cover and pics are STUNNING eye catchers and the talk of fashion blogs and general sites everywhere,and rightly so! She is the TRUE ELITE….not any Rihanna,LOL!
