Beyonce has opened up about the concepts and new styling she has embraced for her new album 4. She opened up to Access Hollywood about one of her pictures in the album art that she poses with ropes. She said, “Now this was not very fun. I was actually quite angry and sore and I wanted to get out of this crazy position. They were saying ‘Do the splits’ and I’m like ‘No!’ So I started off and I kept easing into it then finally, I was like ‘Alright, get the shot, Get the shot!’ because my heels were getting caught in these crazy ropes but it makes one crazy, interesting picture.
She also talked about the styling of the shoot, where she rocks these crazy, silver, Gaga-esque shoes.
She said, “The shoes, that’s what I remember walking outside on that pavement and balancing on these crazy shoes. This was in Paris. We went out somewhere the night before and I woke up and usually it takes you like an hour to smudge mascara and mess your hair up but my make-up artist and hair stylist were like ‘This is exactly what we want’ so they didn’t do my hair and make-up. It’s like from the night before.
