GQ couldn't keep Beyoncé covered for long: The wrapper of the magazine's next issue, which runs down the "100 sexiest women of the 21st century," was leaked online ahead of its official release.

Beyoncé, who is surely number 1, 2 and 3 on the list, smolders in animal-print panties and a cutoff T that shows enough skin to single-handedly keep print alive for another decade.

Beyond looking sexy as all century, Bey has quite a bit on her plate: The sultry chanteuse is due to perform during the Super Bowl halftime show, and was recently invited to sing the National Anthem at President Obama's second inauguration.

UPDATE: GQ has just released the hi-res version of next week's cover, which was photographed by Terry Richardson (click to enlarge). The issue will be on stands Tuesday, Janurary 15th.
