Laverne Cox as Beyonc├â┬⌐ is EVERYTHING!
And we just love her as Single Ladies Bey! From the hair to the pose, she really nailed it!
If you pick up an issue off newsstands, you can also catch Laverne portraying Janet Jackson, Josephine Baker, and Leontyne Price.
Meanwhile, read up on what the OITNB actress has to say about her heroines:
On Queen Bey: “Beyonc├â┬⌐ represents excellence. Her work ethic is like nobody else I’ve ever seen. There were so many moments when I was shooting Rocky Horror and I’d be exhausted. My body would be hurting and I’d be like, ├óΓé¼╦£Beyonc├â┬⌐. Beyonc├â┬⌐ does this.’ You have to just put in the work.”
On the legendary Tina Turner: “The pain, pleasure, and agony of all she’s been through is in her voice. Her story is the story of so many black women who’ve endured abuse and come out the other side in such a brilliant, beautiful way.”
On trans model Tracey Africa: “She was a black trans woman who modeled in the ’70s and had cosmetics deals and a hair con├é┬¡tract with Clairol├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥it was a big deal. People think, ├óΓé¼╦£Oh, this trans revolution is just start├é┬¡ing,’ but we’ve been around for a very long time. It’s important to know that there’s been a path blazed for me.”
