The singer, who was given unprecedented control over the September issue of Vogue ― including the cover, the accompanying article and the photo captions ― got real about her body, pregnancy, and what it means to be a woman.
That realness included talk about the FUPA, an acronym that stands for fat upper pussy (or penis/pubic) area. When you’re done clutching your pearls, just remember its officially Beyoncé-approved now.
“I think it’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies. That’s why I stripped away the wigs and hair extensions and used little makeup for this shoot,” said Ms. Carter, in discussion about why she went with a more natural look for the shoot.
“To this day my arms, shoulders, breasts, and thighs are fuller. I have a little mommy pouch, and I’m in no rush to get rid of it. I think it’s real. Whenever I’m ready to get a six-pack, I will go into beast zone and work my ass off until I have it. But right now, my little FUPA and I feel like we are meant to be.”
We feel you, Bey. And many others on Twitter also felt the FUPA love and showed their excitement for the 36-year-old’s mention of it:
Long live the FUPA. Body positivity forever, y’all!!
