International mega superstar Beyoncé is covering the September issue of InStyle magazine. On the cover, Bey got all glammed-up in a gold Dolce & Gabbana starry mini dress. In the cover story, Bey talked about taking so much time off since her last album, being a wife, traveling with Jay-Z, free time and the importance of a good friendship. Below are some excerpts:
On taking so much time off from her last album, being a wife and traveling with her husband Jay-Z.
“It was great to be a wife and travel with [my husband]. I had to turn down great things. I did it for my sanity, my life, my relationships, my nephew, my husband, my sister and my friendships. I deserved to give myself time to focus on things besides performing, filming and recording.”
When you’re young—18 or 19—you have the energy and drive. That’s the time to work as hard as you can. Now I’m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.”
On her free time & Jersey Shore being her guilty pleasure.
“In my free time I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV. I have to confess that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore.”
On why friendship & girlfriends are so important.
“I am a girl’s girl. Women who don’t have female friends scare me. I love my friends, and I love sitting with them and listening to their stories.”
