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?

Jay has publically expressed

Jay has publically expressed his desire to be a father...he created the buzz. I am still yarning from that interview...that girl is NOT having his child!

always so much hate on the

always so much hate on the Beyonce Posts... anyway, she didn't say much but I agree with her perspective on having children, very similar to mine. The days when women were obligated to become mothers by 25 are long gone! Halle Berry recently said that having her child later in life has given her the freedom to completely enjoy her daughter. And I would imagine that to be true, the world is a really big place and I for one want to see each and every place my heart desires and indulge in culture and experience before popping out a little one. Why is it not Ok for Beyonce to feel the same? I think it's applaudable for women to be ambitious and aspire to accomplish the tasks they have set out to succeed before having children! that's just me though...

I totally agree with

I totally agree with you....Im 24 going on 25 and I am a full time student, work full time and I travel all over the world......I have 6 sisters and they all have children except me! I saw how it hampered their goals in life and made things harder for them and I would have been a fool not to learn from their mistakes.....I'd rather wait until im financially and emotionally ready to have a child......

I can understand her not

I can understand her not wanting to settle down with children just yet. She is very ambitious and wants to devote her energy to whatever she is involved with at the time. So she has time. As for children, hopefully her decision on parenthood is mutual.

beyonce will never have

beyonce will never have babies with jay-z. she will have her babies with a white guy on the low. she will then blame the baby's inherent non-blackness on her creole ancestry.

You are so right. The Knowles

You are so right. The Knowles use younger girls Letoya, Kelly, and Latavia, so that Beyonce appears younger than it seems. By the way Beyonce has wrinkle lies around the mouth.

You're just as dumb as who you follow. There is a difference between being dumb and acting out and doing bad stuff get a dictionary it helps with spelling and definition. And as for Jessica Simpson she acts dumbs cant say the same for Bey because even a stan know she cant act to save her life

I can't believe that you guys

I can't believe that you guys are getting so serious just based on another posters opinion. It's not that serious. Tata do you...if you are a Beyonce fan...that's your business. Sometimes we can be very harsh towards our own. It's not attractive at all.

Bottom line. Beyonce is a

Bottom line. Beyonce is a wonderful person. She has succeeded in so many things on so many levels so I am extremely happy for her. I hope she does switches up her priorities soon and have a child her brand is too major at this point for it to die down. Truth is her brand needs to simmer a little for the moment because she is everywhere and overexposure can tire people. We all know Beyonce is not the greatest actress or the greatest songwriter or maybe even the greatest dresser but those things compared to the bigger picture is nothing. I give her an A for effort on acting and hopefully one day she will find that role that she can breathe within to see truth and act well. A wonderful woman indeed, despite everything we should be happy for her. Go Bey! -

I don’t understand the

I don’t understand the work/life balance answer she gave. You don’t have kids….so how can you compare that to the nothing you do? You walk around w/ your wigs on saying no and yes to decisions. Sit the fuck down and shut up. You don’t even know what its like to manage work/children/family.
