Beyonce in Sports Illustrated





The Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition is usually reserved for super skinny swimsuit models to show off their sexiest poses, yet the 2007 edition has Beyonce gracing its cover clad in a yellow and red bikini from her clothing line, House of Dereon. I have already read some negative things about SI choosing Beyonce for its cover instead of a "traditional model" saying that SI is not a celebrity magazine so they should have used a bikini model. So what do you think, did they make the right decision in featuring Be? Why or why not?

I think women aren't "sports" for men. Nothing wrong with sexy--Beyoncé looks great--but I've always found the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue to be soft porn. It is what it is. Overexposure.

I think Beyonce looks great in her photo shoot! I don't see why it's such an issue to have her on the cover, just because she isn't a model...that's some BS. There could possibly be underlying issues, but that's opening another can of worms...
