(Newser) – She's half of one of Hollywood's power couples, a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, she has a new daughter … and now Beyonce has one more thing to celebrate: She's been crowned People's 2012 World's Most Beautiful Woman. But apparently all she wanted to talk about during the interview was new baby Blue Ivy. "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," she says. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this Earth." And does Blue look more like Bey or Jay? "She looks like Blue," the new mom says. "She's just the cutest thing."
