Though its just begun, 2013 is already the year of Queen Beyoncé, whose selling out concerts in support of an album that has no title, release date, or lead single.

So far, not only does the entertainer, businesswoman and icon cover Vogue March 2013, but also graces the cover of The Gentlewoman‘s Spring/Summer 2013 issue, available now on newsstands.

Photographer Alasdair McLellan captures her in a slick, intimate black-and-white cover shoot for the British style and purpose magazine, a bi-annual collectible.

She talks about taking control of her career by becoming her own manager, drawing inspiration from Madonna, and the difficulty in launching her production company, Parkwood Entertainment.

On the lack of women in the music industry taking control of their own careers:

“I’m controlling my content, controlling my brand and archiving it for my daughter and making sure she has it and she respects it but there’s not enough of us that become moguls.”

On the early stages of setting up Parkwood Entertainment after firing her father as her manager back in 2011:

“I just have memories of when there was no air conditioning in the new building and we didn’t have an office. It was like camping.”

Parkwood went on to help distribute and produce her fourth studio album, 4, the music videos from the album, several of her television specials and films.

Her HBO documentary premieres on Saturday, February 16th, and this summer, she will embark on her Mrs. Carter World Tour.
