I have added Beyonce’s Fabrizio Ferri Photoshoot for Ebony Magazine from earlier in 2009.
-2009 Photoshoots: Fabrizio Ferri for Ebony Magazine
Singer. Songwriter. Philanthropist. Entrepreneur. Actress. Producer. Beyoncé may be the hardest-working woman in showbiz.
Take the four days leading up to MTV’s recent Video Music Awards.
Beyoncé wraps a run-through of her Radio City Music Hall performance at midnight Thursday evening. Friday morning at 10 a.m., it’s déjà vu as she returns to rehearsal mode. A dressing room break is anything but: chats with MTV personnel about show logistics segue into an editing session for her next project — a DVD culled from a summer stand at the Wynn Las Vegas. Later that evening, Beyoncé makes a surprise appearance at husband Jay-Z’s Sept. 11 Madison Square Garden show. Then right after the VMAs, Beyoncé and her alter ego Sasha Fierce catch a flight to Australia to kick off the next leg of their I Am… world tour.
As she ticks off her jam-packed schedule, an unfrazzled Beyoncé dismisses her multitasking with a laugh: “It’s just one of those grind weeks. It will be less hectic when I’m in Australia.” A world tour is less hectic? As you exhale and ponder that irony, it becomes clear that this is someone who thrives on hard work and fierce determination. Before slipping back into her signature stilettos, Billboard’s 2009 Woman of the Year shares how she balances work and relaxation, feeds her philanthropic passions and envisions her future.
Check out scans of the The Billboard Magazine that Bee is featured in. I will post scans as soon as I get my hands on a copy.

Fans are still getting to know Sasha Fierce, Beyoncé’s musical alter ego, formally introduced on the singer’s 2008 album, “I Am…Sasha Fierce.”
Most probably don’t know, however, that the singer/songwriter has been friends with Fierce since elementary school.
Manager and father Mathew Knowles will never forget the moment he first met Fierce. A 7-year-old Beyoncé was entered in a talent search open to Houston elementary and middle school students. The song she sang? John Lennon’s “Imagine.” “Beyoncé was the youngest,” Knowles says. “She got up onstage and when she was finished, she received a standing ovation. Her mother [Tina Knowles] and I looked at each other and said, ‘That can’t be our Beyoncé. She’s shy and quiet.’ ”
Twenty-two years later, that simmering brew of shy, quiet talent peppered with fierce determination and ambition is at a boiling point. The former frontwoman of Destiny’s Child has come into her own, enjoying one of the best years of a still-evolving solo career.
