Beyonce Talks Babies, Balancing, & Bonding With Her Girls

 

Beyonce just finished an interview with a U.K. magazine. Find out her thoughts on 'Sasha Fierce', making whoopie babies, her morning routine in bed, and more when you read on...

 

The long interview took place in an old Tiffany & Co. building in New York's Union Square. Although the singer is taking some time off, she is featured on Kanye's new track 'See Me Now'. 

Here's the parts you really care about:

On being a role model for women and the importance of female friends

Beyonce: "I think I am a feminist in a way. It’s not something I consciously decided I was going to be; perhaps it’s because I grew up in a singing group with other women, and that was so helpful to me. It kept me out of so much trouble and out of bad relationships. My friendships with my girls are just so much a part of me that there are things I am never going to do that would upset that bond. I never want to betray that friendship because I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women. I think we learn a lot from our female friends – female friendship is very, very important. It’s good to support each other and I do try to put that message in my music."

 

On hiding her alter ego 'Sasha Fierce'

Beyonce: "I don’t need Sasha so much any more because these days I know who I am. It takes time to figure out who you are and I am still discovering different things about myself – as I am exposed to different experiences I think, “Oh, I like this, I didn’t know I liked this.” That’s the journey of life that is so exciting. More and more I know who I am, I know what I like, I know what I want and that makes me feel so free. I don’t need to hide any more."

On balancing a husband, singing, and acting

Beyonce: "For me, balance is always really hard to find. I love so many different things, and to have the discipline to turn certain things away and focus on one thing at a time so that I can give it 100 per cent is really hard.
'Probably the biggest challenge in my life is time – making sure I have time to be a wife, to be a singer, to be a songwriter, to be an actor and still have time for my clothing line and now for my perfume. I am like any other woman who has a child, who has a husband, who has a job. I think it’s the hardest thing about being a woman because we have so many responsibilities.
"

 

On making babies with Mr. Carter

Beyonce: "My ambition is to continue to learn about the world and to eventually have a family. No dates, no times – it will happen when I am ready."

 

On staying grounded

Beyonce: "Family does keep me grounded. But you know what I do? I try really hard to make sure that every day I have my 30 minutes of quiet time. Mostly I just lie in bed and meditate and think what my goal is. Some days, of course, I can’t manage 30 minutes, but it’s really important to have those quiet moments."

 

Not gonna lie.  I always love me a Bey interview. Even IF I could give her interview for her word for word at this point. Her answers haven't changed much over the years.

Beyonce is also back in the studio during her "break" working on her umpteenth album.  So y'all know the drill.  You ready for the inevitable Bee swarm?

Good for her. If Beyoncé

Good for her. If Beyoncé wants to wait to have kids, then more power to her. She, and all women, has a right to wait as long as she wants-or, to not have them at all. That is a matter that's really of her and her husband's concern. Enough with this "biological clock" crap.

i agree she can wait until she is ready but she is already in her thirties ...the longer she waits she can have difficulties with her pregancy or the baby---

Remember this message: Jay Z

Remember this message: Jay Z is goina do a Brad Pitt on her aging ass, watch! She having a family when she's ready o really that's like saying "I will give my hubby some when I feel like it"!? Not saying its right or wrong but your hubby is no spring chicken & he will look else where or it will come to him (just life) so keep playing Miss Perfect!

I am not a Beyonce HATER but

I am not a Beyonce HATER but this is a BLOGGING site where views can be openly expressed right? So, that's what I'm doing! So, to those Beyonce fanatics who eat, breathe, and idolize BEYONCE..get off her jock so hard!! I think she is an ok person but when it pertains to this specific issue she rubs me the wrong way! To all who thing Beyonce is the most HUMBLE person to ever hit planet earth..PlEASE dont fool yourselves!! Beyonce's motives are ALL about SELF-glorification!! She will not have any babies for Jay because she is to career driven! I mean she I believe we can all agree she has ARRIVED "What more do you want BEY?" If you notice in her interviews she always says SHE's not ready for kids!That's because SHE is selfish,she knew Jay wanted kids when she met him and she knows his clock is ticking, but does she care??? NOPE!!! ALL ABOUT BEY

Men do not have a time limit

Men do not have a time limit on their fertility. True there is a time limit on his life, but who ever knows when they will die? The fact is, Beyonce has made it very plain that she was focused on her career and she would not have children while she is working as much as she is now. Jay-Z was with her for 8 years and he knew all this because she told the world many times and he still married her. Obviously he is not itching for kids as bad as people think he is. Everybody is saying she needs to put her career on hold and have children, what about JayZ's career? He is still traveling going here and there touring. When will he stop so he can be in one place and help raise the child? Until he can do that too, he not ready for children either. Maybe because so many people are used to absentee fathering society doesn't even expect this from him, but Beyonce is expected to be attached to this baby forever.

There is a time limit on a man's fertility. The sperm is more likely to bring birth defects the older the man.

Ok bloggers, for those of you

Ok bloggers, for those of you hating on Beyonce get a life! She did! I love Beyonce, I am her biggest fan besides her family I'm sure! Now I don't sit up and think of her everyday, but woman to woman I am proud to see this woman of the same sex as I am who has made an imapct on the music industry and is still around. That in itself deserves an applause. So what if her hair looks unappealing to you, so what if she doesn't display all of her friends to the world black or white. Who gives a damn! Really! All I know is when my 2 daughters are riding in the car with me and single ladies comes on the radio, I pull the car over, we sing and dance like we are on stage. Thanks to Beyonce we got the message in the song. We step out of our comfort zone. We become Sasha! Keep motivating us Beyonce cause my girls and I are listening!

Probably the most sane and

Probably the most sane and grounded woman of our generation. At least when she "decides" to have children, (and yes having children should be a choice not a "mistake") she will be ready and the children will be legitimate. Go Bey! Break the stereotype of black women having illegitimate children and multiple children by different fathers.

We know IF she has children

We know IF she has children it will definitely be her decision and have nothing to do with JAY because he has no say in that!!! What type of marriage is that? From past interviews, we are aware that he wants children. Next, I'm so tired of people always REMINDING BLACK people of what the stereotypes are!!! That’s why we can't move forward!! You think white people go around congratulating their children who did not have children before they were married or patting them on the back because they only have ONE “baby-daddy”??? No, because it's expected! If, we as a culture set our EXPECTATIONS higher we wouldn’t have to worry about stereotypes!! I'm a college graduate without any kids also, but my parents didn’t pat me on the back for that because they wouldn’t have accepted anything less! Come on people!!

i never understand why people

i never understand why people get so worked up about Beyonce. Why are you fans cursing at people who dont like Beyonce. You are defending a woman who could care less on either side. The cursing and hate calling has got to stop. People have the right to their opinions. Thats why its a gossip website. Dont you realize that this is what helps the celebrity popularity. Beyonce isnt worried about it, Why are you?

Have you ever thought about

Have you ever thought about the fact that maybe God has said time is RIGHT? Beyonce is just not listening! There is a such thing as being disobedient to God's word!!! The bible says "A man's pride shall bring him low." Beyonce is selfish! She is on top now but this is all temporary until she completly humbles herself and starts to put others wants and desires (Jay) before hers all the time. Maybe she should check the definition of a GOOD wife!! Anyone can wear the ring, but you have to take SELF out of the equation at times in order to make things work out in the best interest of the RELATIONSHIP!!!

I'm so over Beyonce!!! It's

I'm so over Beyonce!!! It's sad she is like many women today! She is so focused on her career rather than the things in life that are truly important. I'm not saying that a career is not, but at her age and the age of her husband it's now time to focus on FAMILY!!! Beyonce is wrapped in her bubble and she wants to be at the TOP so bad that she is willing to deprive Jay of children. This is sad. I believe Jay is obviously a good guy to stay and put up with this for this length of time!
Anonymous's picture

Ok, you're looking waaaayy

Ok, you're looking waaaayy too deep into THEIR relationship. It's called FAMILY PLANNING, a concept foreign to a lot of folks. I dont hear you talking about Mary J needing to have kids. You don't think Jay knew her views on having kids. The girl is only 29 years old. Mind your business and go have some babies.

Yeah she is almost 29 but her

Yeah she is almost 29 but her husband is almost 41. It's not all about HER!

And again, I repeat - dont

And again, I repeat - dont you think JAY knew she didn't want kids right now when HE MARRIED her??? Why are you mad FOR him? If he's fine with it then why does it matter to you? Jay is 41 and can give sperm until he leaves this earth, so his age matters not. They are both young in heart/mind and fit, so they can raise a kid when Jay is 45 if need be.

This interview wasn't in a

This interview wasn't in a magazine but in a trashy english newpaper called the daily mirror. Maybe thats why her interview did not come across well. Anyhoo I'm no fan of beyonce either and feel that she has also turned to the dark side but some of you guys need to stop the verbal abuse/diahorea. Its not cool. Leave the woman alone. If she is not affecting your life then keep it moving and move on to the next post. As for her and Jay having babies, you keep blaming this woman but Jay needs to take ownership too. He knew what kind of woman she was before he married her and I'm sure they both spoke on the topic of having kids. Just because they are married does not mean that they should start having kids straight away. And if beyonce has only started to know who she is now then what would she of been able to offer her children if she had had them 2 years ago. I mean money isn't everything when it comes to raising kids, it helps but if you're trying to teach them morals and teach them to see the world in a certain way then how can you teach them that if you're not sure of who you are. Anyway like i said i'm no fan but I wish her the best of luck.
