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?

beautifulvirgo be careful about passing judgement on others, BECAUSE it will always come back around and bite you in the ass. The A comes before the U in BECAUSE. Make sure your own spelling is CORRECT before you critique someone else's.

Unfortunately, i don't think

Unfortunately, i don't think Beyonce and Camel face Jay-Z will have children in the future...Bey just seems a little high maintenance at times...Jay-Z on the other hand, the clock is a ticking time bomb for him. 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!!!

Lets face it, this girl made

Lets face it, this girl made a lot of money because she has been paraded around like a sex symbol and has the best PR people in the business. HOWEVER, lets face it, she is not too bright. She went to private school and had a better education than the Jacksons? Really? That has got to be another lie because someone forgot to teach her about feminism. And what girls do you see her hanging out with (by the way, this is not feminism). This is shameful, thank god she has money

Beyonce will always be Sasha

Beyonce will always be Sasha Fierce, because this is the persona that the entertainment industry has perpetuated. She is in too deep to turn back now, she does not have a clue who she really is, and once she discovers her true self, she may not like it.

Beyonce definitely excels at

Beyonce definitely excels at her art and various business ventures. I understand that we all have our strengths and weaknesses. Over the years, it is obvious that interviews are not her favorite thing to do. It just seems to me that at this stage in her career she could demand that they provide her with interview questions in advance. I think this would allow her to give more thoughtful responses and/or clarify questions she may not have a sound understanding of. Maybe she might consider getting a few new people on her staff if they are going to make her look ignorant. Some people are better at developing an appropriate response when they are given extra time to organize thier thoughts and ideas. Anyway, I hope she continues to evolve and become more comfortable in her skin.

Is Beyonce imitating

Is Beyonce imitating Icelandic design? A pair of trousers from the new Dereon autumn collection, which is owned by the singer Beyonce, look a great deal like trousers from Iceland’s E-label – a pair of which the musician bought for herself last autumn. “This is naturally huge and I am still half in shock. I didn’t twig straight away that this was her own label: I just thought she was wearing our leggings. It is practically just copy/paste,” says Heba Hallgrimsdottir, one of the owners of E-label. In the promotional material for the Dereon Autumn Collection, which Beyonce owns with her mother, the singer is seen photographed in leggings which look extremely similar to leggings from E-label. The trousers in question were designed by Asgrimur Mar Fridriksson and are black, studded with metal spikes on the front. Frettabladid reported last November that Beyonce had bought exactly that pair of leggings from the E-label brand at a branch of Topshop in London, and reports this weekend that it is a very strange coincidence. Asked whether E-label will attempt to sue, Heba said she could not answer that question as things stand right now. “I have only just heard about this and no decision has yet been taken. We need to inspect her brand’s trousers closer because, according to law, it is not copied if a certain number of things have been changed from the original design,” heba said. She added that Beyonce’s E-label leggings were bought from the Edit section of Topshop, which sell designs from little-known labels. When asked, Heba said that E-label has not copyrighted its design, but believes that widespread media coverage of Beyonce’s purchase last November, both in Iceland and overseas, would be evidence enough to prove plagiarism – if E-label eventually decides that the new design was indeed copied from their own. “But if people want to buy the original leggings, they can pop in to us on Laugavegur 27,” she added with a laugh. Beyonce steals again in her new Dereon AD.

Feminism deals with cultural,

Feminism deals with cultural, political and economical movements. It is much greater than hanging out with your girlfriends Beyonce. She is too cute but not very bright.

I was just about to comment

I was just about to comment that clearly she lacks the slightest knowledge of what feminism is. Hanging out with girlfriends? No honey. Now that she's made a ton of money and has established herself in her profession, maybe it's time to go back and get that GED.

Beyonce comes off dull and

Beyonce comes off dull and lacking in her interviews. She's not an intellectual and I wonder how much she really knows about the "world" she is working so hard to "discover". I appreciate Beyonce's talent and work ethic, but she will eventually become a "diva" trying to hang on to her "glory days". In the meantime, she'll work on an album for three weeks, market it as her "most personal album" and we the consumers will be fooled again!!!

I bet you the album will be

I bet you the album will be released this year which means she worked on it for no more than a month. Not we consumers, her stans will fall for it.

Why is everyone concerned if

Why is everyone concerned if Bey & Jay are going to have a baby and not Mary J. Blige or Janet Jackson. I think what people have to understand is that having children is a personal decision and sometimes our favorite celebs may not want children, for their own reasons. Remember, having children is a choice, its not mandatory.
