Beyonce Works It Out In EBONY
Feb 27 | by Natasha
Beyonce is rocking the cover and pages of the upcoming issue of EBONY magazine. And the pics are lovely: When asked who is the real Beyonce, she tells the magazine: “I’m a daughter, I’m a friend, I’m a wife, I’m a sister. All those things first. I’m artist. I’m a businesswoman. I’m multifaceted. I’m a lover. I’m inspired by love. I make decisions from the heart.” Asked to describe herself as a wife: “I don’t know how to talk about it because I don’t like to talk about it. But I have a great example of a great wife, and that’s my mother. And I have great friends around me that have been married, so I’m lucky to have really good examples. And a great husband.” She says they are just like any other couple. She is learning to cook and he’s getting over his single-guy habits. One thing she does to get on his nerve: “I’m a little messy. Oh, yeah. Whenever I’m out in public, I have to be put together. When I get home, I rebel against it and I don’t want to take care of anything. I drop it. I’m relaxed. I don’t have any shoes on. No makeup. My purse is in the kitchen. I think that is most difficult thing for him. He’s very, very organized. I’m extremely organized when I’m working, and I work so much that when I get home I don’t want to think about anything.” As what Jay-Z does that get on her nerves: She laughs, “I won’t say.” More pics and quotes when you read the rest... When she makes decisions about what projects to do, her priority is not money but personal growth: “I turn down million dollar offers all the time because it’s something that does not feel true for what I’m trying to say. I have to be passionate about it. Love inspires and growth inspires me…If it is not going to be iconic, something I can love 10 years from now, I’ve learned I should not waste my time with it.” She says her and Jay-Z stay out of each other’s business dealings: “He was very successful before I met him and I was very successful before I met him. So we have so much respect for each other, and respect for each other artistically. We are very close friends, and I believe he is the ultimate artist and he has the same feelings for me.” She said she doing charity work such as working with women and children through shelters and organizations. She says she is mentoring and counseling them. Asked about a quote from years ago where she said she wanted to retire by age 21: She says she could have retired at that age but now she has no intention of ever retiring: “I’ve worked so hard on my craft, and I will never stop. I will never retire. I love it way too much.” Fabulous.
