It's official! GQ's Sexiest Woman of the Century Beyonce Knowles and Sexy Back singer Justin Timberlake are combining their sexy powers for one highly anticipated collaboration.
Queen B confirmed the news to GQ magazine, telling the publication, "I've been working with Pharrell and Timbaland and Justin Timberlake and 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."
The last time Mr. JT and Beyonce collaborated was for the Single Ladies parody on Saturday Night Live in 2009:
Keeping up the excitement for her album's release, she adds of her influences, "Mostly R&B. I always have my Prince and rock/soul influences. There's a bit of D'Angelo, some '60s doo-wop and Aretha and Diana Ross."
Beyonce, who will headline this year's Super Bowl Halftime show, said she gains musical inspiration everywhere, recalling how one Destiny's Child track came to be, saying, "Even the silliest little thing that you hear on the radio, it comes from something deeper. Bootylicious was funny, but it came from people saying that I had gained weight and me being like, 'I'm a southern woman, and this is how southern women are.' My motivation is always to express something or to heal from something or to laugh and rejoice about something."
Following that up, she says of her fame, "I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."
