Beyonce looks as flawless as ever on the cover of Flaunt magazine, rocking a braided ponytail for her black & white close-up shot.

The singer recently took the stage at Made In America festival, with Jay Z acting as undercover fanboy, and she also celebrated her 34th birthday the other week. For her latest magazine cover and photo spread, she chills in and around an L.A. pool, with most of the photo shoot resulting in crisp black and white shots. Photographer Robin Harper also captured two beautiful color shots. Take a look at the gallery above to see all the photographs of Queen Bey.

She also did a word association interview of sorts with the magazine, where she answers words like "competition" with "middle finger :P"-- peep that below.
