Singer flaunts 'sexuality and strength' in stunning snaps

Beyoncé Knowles has stripped off for a series of very revealing pictures.

The singer, 31, poses naked with only glitter to cover her modesty in the stunning snaps, which were taken in 2011 but have only just been released.

In other photos for the Flaunt Magazine shoot Bey wears bright tribal make-up and gets smeared in white paint.

The Crazy In Love songstress, who is a mum to 18-month-old Blue Ivy Carter with hubby Jay-Z, is an avid Instagram user and loves to express herself through daring pictures.

‘I have chosen to keep certain aspects of my life private,’ says Beyoncé.

‘But I also love sharing what makes me happy, especially through photography.’

Bey thinks her ability to show off her sexuality – as the saucy new snaps undoubtedly show – is the reason she attracts a big gay fanbase.

‘I think they love that we are bold, unafraid to love, and flaunt our sexuality and strength,’ the mum-of-one says.
