October 5, 2015

On Wednesday (April 25) PEOPLE magazine named Beyonce the World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2012. The 30-year-old singer tops the magazine's annual list of the “World's Most Beautiful” in a special double issue on stands Friday.

Going behind the scenes, Beyonce tells PEOPLE, “Being named the world's most beautiful woman is hard to say. It's overwhelming. It makes me feel very crunchy, and that means embarrassed,” she says while laughing. She also tells the magazine, “I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this Earth.”
