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?

I love Beyonce interviews

I love Beyonce interviews aswell, its interesting to try and figure out the psychology of such a succesful woman Bey is in the studio making a new album? YAY!! Can't wait, and I am sick of these people always asking her when she gona have babies-leave Beyone alone!
lambdahling's picture

You should always have

You should always have children in your own time HOWEVER consideration for your mate should be a part of that decision. She should ask Jennifer Aniston how that I will have the when I am ready attitude worked out for her. Just sayin'

Oh please, jennifer never

Oh please, jennifer never said she didn't want children that beautiful skank Angelina came along. Well Brad has kids now hasn't he? He's got a truck load of them! And he looking like a worn out misrable old git haha. Even if Jay leaves Beyonce and has babies with RIhanna, it won't hurt Bey cos men will be in a que waiting for her bootylicious lol and maybe then she can get herself a good looking husband

Hmmm "No dates-No times- it will happen when (I) am ready." Interesting statement. Emphasis on "I" and not "WE."

She expressed that sentiment

She expressed that sentiment correctly. Jay-Z will not be carrying the baby, she will, so HE can't tell her when to be ready to do that!

The sentiment is incorrect.

The sentiment is incorrect. And women need to remember that. Say whatever you want, men think differently. And sometimes women have to find out the hard way.

Sorry, but marriage is WE not

Sorry, but marriage is WE not I. Even when a couple is decideing when to have children, it is We not I. If both parties can't agree, then there should be absolutlely no problem if the other spouse decides to divorce and marry someone that will have children in a reasonable time frame. Regardless if a women carries the child its a joint decision.

Well, I knew all these hatin bitches would be on here preying for her to get pregnant. I personally she should continue to take some time off for herself. Find some good inspiration for her albums. And also for her videos, maybe she can be more artistic and come up with some hotter concept.

Beyonce has so much going for

Beyonce has so much going for herself right now. She is a hard working young lady and a great entertainer. However, I think she should take a break from the music. Do your features or what have you, but allow people the time to miss you in regards to an album. And Natasha, u r so right .. her interviews never change - pretty much you can always expect the same response from her. I don't think B wants kids until shes mid 30, but for her husbands sake, she shouldnt think so one-sided about him. Neither of them is getting any younger.

Does anyone know if her and

Does anyone know if her and Jay showed up to Alicia Keys' wedding??? I mean if the "girl power" is really important, how can you befriend a friend who may have wrecked someone else's happy or unhappy marriage. If you maintain these sorts of friendships, there is a chance that someday your FRIEND may do the same to you.

Regardless, none of our friends are perfect. I don't think it would reflect poorly on anyone to remain friends with Alicia/Swizzy just because THEY did dirt.

Why you chicks think you have

Why you chicks think you have the right to tell the chick what to do with her own goddamn uterus is beyond me. if the chick doesnt want to push out a whole gaggle of rugrats thats her damn prerogative. Whether she has a child or not does not affect the price of tea in China. You people need to get a life, telling someone else to settle down and have babies. STFU

Exactly...a reall woman knows

Exactly...a reall woman knows when she is "ready" to have children, and it's very unselfish to wait until you are ready so that you can be the best mommy that you can be! I believe a lot of folks on this site are either quite young and naive or just ignorant!

The funny thing is, she gave

The funny thing is, she gave this interview back in FEBRUARY when her Heat perfume was launching in the US, but its only just being released in the UK, so the Daily Mail is running her Q&A now. She said all these things before her tour had ended & her break even began. That said, her answers are always the same because their questions are always the same. Maybe one day when an interviewer asks her something besides the same ol' same ol', we;ll get to hear something different out of Beyonce. :)

she requires the reporters to

she requires the reporters to send the questions ahead of time and typically declines edgy questions about (kelly, her dad's baby, etc) So this is all we get. BS But to be honest she seems boring anyway

The press doesn't need to be

The press doesn't need to be asking her sh^t about her dad's infidelity, so I'm completely on her side for nixing questions about her marriage or her parents' divorce. Those things are none of the public's business. Just because she has a public job doesn't mean she's obligated to tell every little part of her life. Sometimes you want to keep some things private. I get that. When I said different questions, I mean how many times can these reporters ask her when she's having a child? How many times are they gonna ask her why she rarely wears her wedding band or talks about her marriage in public? How many times are they going to submit questions on her being a feminist or having an alter ego? If they decided to ask her (for example) what her favorite music other than her own is, what dishes her mother has taught her to cook during her 'break', what she likes best about living in New York, her favorite places to travel, her favorite country to perform in, the most inspiring thing her musical elders have told her, her 10 year career plan, her experiences singing for the president at both the inauguration & the state dinner, her thoughts on her little sister's music, her career aspirations outside of music and film, her thoughts on her previous movie roles, why she chose certain producers or video directors, what certain songs in her repertoire mean to her, what she thinks she can improve at, what inspires her right now, ... then we'd get new answers, Because no matter how many times they ask her these old questions, her answers are always going to be the same- the answers don't change when you're telling your truth. I already know how having a newborn brother has to make her feel; I don't need a journalist to put her on the spot by asking. I already know how she feels about Kelly Rowland & vice versa; I don't need them to ask her when her response is the same as Kelly's. I already know why she didn't release her wedding pictures & why she tries not to say too much about her husband- I don't expect that to change. But I DO wish they'd give her some new things to think about during these press junket interviews. Its the same with every star who does them. 10 standard questions that never change.
