    Watch out, 'cause television personality and fashionista EJ Johnson is coming soon to a magazine stand near you!

    The #RichKids of Beverly Hills star will be appearing in an upcoming feature in the August issue of Out magazine, where he dishes on several personal topics, including his favorite lady, Beyoncé.

    "I am obsessed with Beyoncé," he tells Out. "If I had a talk show, I'd go take a dance class with Beyoncé, sit on stage with her, learn her process. I met her a couple of times. She's very composed and calm, sweet and demure as a person. But when she gets on stage she's sexy and dynamic and on fire!"

    When asked about his personal dancing skills compared to his fellow #RichKids cast members including Dorothy Wang and Jonny Drubel, EJ isn't afraid to tell the truth.

    "There's really no question about [it]," he says, "Because it's obviously me. End of story, point blank, period, thank you. It's a wrap."

    So what does a #RichKid like to do aside from jetsetting, shopping, and continuing to build his fabulous purse collection? Museums and the opera, of course!

    "I don't even have to understand what they're saying," EJ admits. "You just feel it. I'm just like, 'I don't know what you're talking about but, like, I can feel that somebody hurt you, child. Somebody f----d you over. But I can hear you girl—you sing. Sing, honey! Do it. Sing about it.'"

    EJ is also about giving back to others and helping raise awareness in the gay community. Having just served as a celebrity Grand Marshal in the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade, the reality television star now wants to become more involved with helping gay youth.

    "I think you definitely need a core group," he says. "Any kid, regardless of their sexual orientation, is going to need that to grow and prosper and to ultimately become successful. A child who's different and faces a lot of discrimination and hardship is going to need twice that. If you're not getting that from home, I suggest you surround yourelf with a strong support group of friends and older mentors, if they are available to you. Surround yourself with a lot of love, and let that be the funnel for your confidence."

    The August issue of Out hits newsstands on July 15.

    Tune-in for an all-new season of #RichKids of Beverly Hills on Sunday, August 3 at 10/9c on E!
