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?

"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." What is so fascinating about interviewing someone who provides the same answers over and over and over?

Ahhhh, the nappy headed

Ahhhh, the nappy headed haters are out in full force on yet another Beyonce post I see. lol You people are insane!! Insane I tell ya! The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again yet expecting different results. Therefor, if you already know what Beyonce is going to say in all her interviews, if you already know you hate her, if you already know she's a liar, etc etc, why are you the first ones to show up on a Beyonce post? Insane? lol I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you're not insane, ok. Wanna know what I really think it is? You love her. You love everything about her. You crave her. You can't get enough of her. You search blogs high and low every hour on the hour to see "where in the world is Beyonce" just so you can say how much you hate her! You tell her "please go away so we can miss you" and "please take a break" and yet if a day goes by w/o a Bey post you feel a little empty...don't you? lol Wow. If Beyonce only knew all the power she wields over the ghetto fabulous Shenaynay's of the world! Y'all soooooo wanna be like her!

(LOL)!!!!............Love it........You are SO RIGHT!!! These people want her life SO BAD, but they begrudge HER having it to the point of SENSELESS hatred. It is THE MOST bizarre thing ever!! I have visited other blog sites, watched documentaries, read many books regarding other cultures and NOWHERE have I come across the amount of hatred, among their own, like black people......

O.K. I am convinced that the

O.K. I am convinced that the lace-front glue has damaged her braincells. The conversation level at best sounds like high school. There is not one redeeming thing about her wanting to have a family. It makes me think more and more her and JayZ marriage was one of convenience/business. Jigga sack is getting older by the year, and to be perfectly honest, I do not think Beyonce is too selfish to want children, yet alone to give Jay any kids. I wish she would honestly go away for a long time, or even produce music or something. I am honestly tired of her. Know what people must have felt like in the 80's with Madonna...people were so tired of her.

Is it just me or does she

Is it just me or does she seem to advocate for female relationships a little too much? Bey stop, we all know you have no real female friends, your cousin works for you, your former group members are obligated to you and the best you can manage on your own is Gwyneth Paltrow. I bet the two of you just spend HOURS talking about your similarities. Even your own mother in past interviews talks about how you had no friends at school as a child which is one of the reasons they started the group instead of pushing you solo to begin with. It's okay, you have a lot going on and many women are too insecure to deal with your success. I've been in your situation, on a much lower level of course. But seriously, stop pretending. We never see you vacationing with your 'girls'.

I really do hope this is an old interview, b/c I'm an all Beyonce'd out...I just want her to take some time to be a wife and mother and stop selling herself. She is going to age very badly if she doesn't take more time to herself. I think she's afraid of becoming obsolete, and if that's the case then it makes me wonder does she even love what she does anymore.

Bey what happen to thanking

Bey what happen to thanking God and honoring him in your life like you used when you first started out. As for babies yeah I'm sure we are so tired of hearing that topic and she has the right to decide on when and where but the bigger picture here and with everyone is that there is a 12 year age difference between she and Jay. Jay is not getting any younger and will soon be 41 so the way she is holding out he will be almost 50 years old before she has a child and that is what is so sad. Yes, she is still a young womand and may feel like she has time for children but she is depriving her husband of being an active father to his child/children. Let's just say she has a baby next year Jay will be 51 when their child turns "10" and that is an old dad and a selfish Beyonce.

Yo the way famous couples

Yo the way famous couples split up, Beyonce and Jay Z need to be married a lonnng time before throwing a kid in the mix. Beyonce's Dad cheated on her mom and their marriage was tested tryna create and maintain Destiny's Child (both casts) so take yo time Beyonce, Jay Z ain't in no hurry, if he was he could've chosen to have a baby with any number of women he dated before his marriage. Leave'em alone. I do wish she'd interview better, damn she be sounding so dumb smh

She never makes any sense.

She never makes any sense. Oh, now that you have capitalized so heavily off of Sasha Fierce, you don't need her anymore, because you know who you are now? WTF? SO, you were lost when you did the alter ego? Really Beyonce?

Your critical comments about

Your critical comments about Bey sounds so sour grapes! Bey by being consistent with her comments is being protective of herself as she well should. Bey does gives honor to God, she speaks of it often and this interview she was trying to truly express women being solid friends as well as telling the public that baby talk is still her decision to make in her own time. Bey is smart to pursue her career and gain influence, exposure, and develop many interests while she can. The industry power does not have a problem with Bey's vocabulary, her style, her voice, her acting....Bey is getting offers to continue to do music, advertising, and acting!

Do you know how you sound???

Do you know how you sound??? These interviews are chopped and screwed. She don't have to please anyone or give an in depth interview about her life. I am pretty sure her vocabulary is fine but not to people liking because its not interesting. LMAO further your education please because one has nothing to do with the other.

Not for nothing beyonce is

Not for nothing beyonce is smart. She may have dumb blond moments like most woman but she is smart. Say what you want about her and her husband but you can't do what they do, travel where they travel or eat the things they eat. He may be a camel face but if he threw it to you I know you woman would take it in a heartbeat. Stop hating and get a life. Who are you but opinions and speculations. You guys don't count. If she make a hot single you guys are on it and if the CD is hot your gonna buy it. Say what you want but you want to be her right now. Fall back and get a grip already let that woman be.

I personally never brought a beyonce cd after dangerously in love and i let my mom have it. i do have a couple of songs downloaded but not a big fan. She needs to talk to her husband about having kids but at the end of the day she has to carry and push that kid out. Most career woman don't want kids and why should she be any different. Yea her husband have a say but he is a career man so who is gonna watch the baby the damn nanny???? Come on people wake up she do have the choice of having kids since its her body not his. if she has a kid its because its the time to and right now is not the time. He will be ok if he wants a kid adopt a dog. I am jus saying

Camel Face "occult leader/the roc-man" is freakin' old as HELL!!! (41yrs old) i think both him & bey will have OLD genes by the time they seriously consider having a child...besides Bey's child is NOT going to be as cute as SOLANGE's son Juelz!!!

LOL @ Natasha taking an interview that was doe MONTHS prior to Beyonce taking her break and poting it as "New". Smh! Alos why would her aswers be the same? If she actuall changed the aswers you people would complain that she's "lying". Therefore same questiosn= same answers. She's keeping it consistant. Duh!! I'll never understand the hate black bitches have for this girl and Rihanna. I'm convinced is because they're are of lighter and pretty and the commentors are...well...NOT. And yeah that may sound "ignorant", but I never see anyone one ugly or darker catch like they do.

Unfortunately, when people decide to keep the drama out of their lives, it looks boring to everyone else. But I agree, Beyonce would be more entertaining if she was running down a man who didn't want her, not paying her bills on time, i.e., living outside of her means, cheating, or cursing some one out. At least w/ Jada Pinkett, she at least tries to keep it lively by alluding to extra-marital activities every so often, lol. Yeah, and LOL @ the songwriting comment too Who knows, maybe she does occassionally write a song or two, but why keep mentioning it when no one believes her? lol.
