Beyoncé Talks Super Bowl, New Album and More

GQ.com has revealed a portion of the magazine's cover story with Beyoncé. Queen B will be on the cover of the February issue, which hits newsstands on January 22. She will then headline the Super Bowl halftime show on February 3, premiere an HBO documentary (that she produced and directed) about her career on February 16, and will embark on a world tour to promote her fifth album, which is tentatively due in April.

"I worked so hard during my childhood to meet this goal: By the time I was 30 years old, I could do what I want," Beyoncé told GQ. "I've reached that. I feel very fortunate to be in that position. But I've sacrificed a lot of things, and I've worked harder than probably anyone I know, at least in the music industry. So I just have to remind myself that I deserve it."

As for the new album, the singer said she has been working with Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and The-Dream. "We all started in the '90s, when R&B was the most important genre, and we all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us," she stated.

Beyoncé also spoke about the Super Bowl during the interview, when she explained: "One of the reasons I connect to the Super Bowl is that I approach my shows like an athlete. You know how they sit down and watch whoever they're going to play and study themselves? That's how I treat this. I watch my performances, and I wish I could just enjoy them, but I see the light that was late. I see, 'Oh God, that hair did not work.' Or 'I should never do that again.' I try to perfect myself. I want to grow, and I'm always eager for new information."

In other news, Columbia/Legacy Recordings will release Destiny's Child - Love Songs, a new career-spanning collection of romantic recordings, on Tuesday, January 29. Comprised mainly of tracks recorded between 1997 and 2004, Love Songs also features "Nuclear," the first new Destiny's Child song since 2004. Produced by Pharrell Williams, "Nuclear" features vocal production by Beyoncé and Lonny Bereal.
