As we suspected based on a sketchy photo making the Internet rounds last week, Queen Bey is in fact Vogue UK's May cover girl.

Beyoncé's wearing a full look from British-based Jonathan Saunders's spring 2013 collection, paired with natural hair and minimal makeup. She looks gorge on her second Vogue cover in three months, if a bit befuddled about why she's making that bizarre ballerina pose.

That word can be very extreme... But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman.'

I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it's something that's pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept. But I'm happily married. I love my husband.

She also loves to work hard, and is apparently covered in bruises at all times:

'I'm always bruised somewhere - my legs, my hips,' she says of the gruelling preparations that make for those spectacular shows. 'But you've already started so you've just gotta fight through it.'

Suffice it to say, the Beyhive is likely in for a pretty spectacular show, as the singer embarks on her world tour April 15.

And all of us are likely in for a few more Beyoncé glossy covers (and ad campaigns). Rumor has it her next will be V.
