Little by little we’re getting more bits and pieces of Beyonce‘s GQ interview that’s out next month and I have to say, it’s pretty interesting. Rarely does she ever open up like this and give us an insight to her life, so it’s a pretty rare occasion for her to be opening up to her fans so much.
In the interview, Beyonce talks about giving birth and those pesky rumors about her fake pregnancy last year. Here are some highlights of what she says:
On being married (and not wearing a wedding ring sometimes): “I was independent before I met my husband, and we have such a natural chemistry and a genuine relationship, and it’s based on the things that relationships are supposed to be based on. I’ve seen, growing up, when a woman or a man in a relationship—it doesn’t matter which one—doesn’t feel confident, they feel a bit trapped. Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.”
She totally gave birth: “When I gave birth, that was the first time I truly let go and surrendered. And it taught me how amazing that feels… Giving birth made me realize the power of being a woman. I have so much more substance in my life. And expressing that excitement and that sensuality and the connection I have with my husband—I’m a lot more comfortable with that now. I actually feel like my child introduced me to myself.”
On the rumors she fakes her pregnancy: “I felt like I kind of had to protect my mother, because when people made up the silliest rumor about me not really being pregnant. She was there when I went through all of those things. And my sister. They were very, very defensive. It’s not personal to me, and it comes along withthe job, but the lack of respect—people will just go too far sometimes.”
She’s a Virgo: “Because I’m a Virgo, I will think myself into a crazy frenzy, and I will re-think and re-think and figure out, you know, way too many things.”
