Ten years ago, Tyra Banks was the first African American model to grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue alone. Now, Beyonce is the firs nonmodel/nonathlete to do the same. This year’s swimsuit issue is music themed, with photos of musicians posing with swimsuit clad models. Perhaps this is why they went with Beyonce as their cover model, she’s both a musician and beautiful, lol. Here are a few of the pictures from her photoshoot, but you can head over to Sports Illustrated to see the rest. And of course she looks beautiful, we’ve already pointed out that she hardly ever takes a bad photo, lol.
