Beyonce shines and sparkles on the cover of the latest issue of InStyle Magazine!

In addition to posing it up for a sexy photoshoot for the mag’s September 2011 issue, the Pop star also dished on whether or not she has regrets after working hard, what she does during her free time and how she loves spending time with her girlfriends.

On whether or not she regrets working hard:
“I sacrificed so much as a kid and as a teenager. I have no regrets because my job kept me focused. When you’re young – 18 or 19 – you have the energy and drive. That’s the time to work as hard as you can. Now I’m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.”

On what she does during her free time:
“In my free time I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV. I have to confess that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore.”

On spending time with her girlfriends:
“I am a girl’s girl. Women who don’t have female friends scare me. I love my friends, and I love sitting with them and listening to their stories.”
