Talk about FIERCE! Chart topper Beyonce is looking like every inch the diva on this month’s cover of Vogue UK. Inside the mag, the singer talks about her career, motherhood, and the criticism she gets for calling herself “Mrs. Carter.” Here are some highlights:

Does Beyonce consider herself a feminist? “That word can be very extreme… But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman. If you’re attractive then you can’t be sexy, and you can’t be intelligent? What is all of that?…”

The criticism for calling herself ‘Mrs. Carter’: “I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept. But I’m happily married. I love my husband. I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do.’ The purpose of my body became completely different.”

She wants Blue Ivy to follow her dreams: “I definitely want my daughter to have goals and drive and passion – it has to be a balance. I hope she figures it out. Whatever makes her happy, I’m there. I do feel like I’m going to be honest with my daughter.”
