Another day another million and one reasons to praise Beyoncé for gifting us with the honour of her mere existence. This week it’s Yoncé’s already legendary Vogue cover shoot and feature story for the magazine’s prestigious September Issue that has everyone going wild.
Particularly, Beyoncé talking lovingly about her FUPA! In the pages of Vogue! What a time to be alive!
FUPA is everyone’s new favourite buzzword and it’s mandatory that we are all well and truly across it. That’s like, the rules of feminism.
FUPA stands for Fat Upper Pubic Area (or Upper Pussy/Penis Area). Basically, it’s your gut, and it’s great.
“My little fupa and I feel like we are meant to be”-Beyoncé

Instead of a cover interview, Beyoncé wrote her own personal essay to feature in Vogue that divulges intimate details about her dangerous pregnancy complications that forced her to have an emergency C-Section, her relationship with Jay-Z, her blackness and her body.
It’s an incredible feature that you need to read. Please.
Beyonce took off the weave for this shoot. She talked about her fupa…about breaking generational curses. She…Beyonce. I’m so grateful to live in a world where we get to experience her.

“To this day my arms, shoulders, breasts and thighs are fuller,” Bey shares in reference to her post-pregnancy body. “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.”
Beyoncé said her fupa isn’t going anywhere, ladies! It’s time to get in formation! pic.twitter.com/nrI0BX4pZ9

Trust Beyoncé to not only have her cover be shot by a black photographer (Tyler Mitchell) for the first time in Vogue’s 126-year history, but to also back it up with all of this. She’s truly out-Beyoncé’d herself.
Rarely are terms used to describe our fat imbued with even the faintest hint of positivity, but FUPA is officially a term full of love and gentle body acceptance.

So let’s all be grateful that we exist at the same time as Beyoncé because it is truly a privilege. And let’s all take a note out of Bey’s book and be kind to ourselves and our bodies.
