Essence takes you behind the scenes of their covershoot with Beyonce for their November issue, Beyonce is looking nothing short of FIERCE! If you missed out on reading some tidbits from her interview with the magazine check em out below... I'm soo glad Beyonce is finally giving us some REAL talk, I don't know about you guys but it makes me connect better with the superstar.
Beyonce On Keeping Her LIfe Private
“I feel that, especially now, with the Internet and paparazzi and camera phones, it’s so difficult to maintain mystery. And that’s so important. Even in a relationship, I feel like not being that accessible is really important. If you think about Prince or Michael Jackson, or any superstars, you couldn’t see them when they got off their planes or when they got out of the pool and didn’t comb their hair. It’s great that people see we’re not perfect. But it’s almost impossible to have superstars now, because people will never get enough. And it’s not even about my music. It’s about all the things that people imagine about me in their minds. But I can’t satisfy everyone. I know that Jay and I probably do inspire people. And I appreciate people feeling proud. But this is the only way I’ve been able to stay sane, so why would I start talking now?
“[Not speaking] controls your brand. “It controls what you want to put out there and kind of forces people to talk about what you want them to talk about.”
Her Relationship With Jay
“We decide everything. My word is my word. What Jay and I have is real. It’s not about interviews or getting the right photo op. It’s real.”
On Getting Tattoos instead of engagement rings
“People put too much emphasis on that. It’s just material, and it’s just silly to me”
She also went on to say she always knew marriage was in her and Jay's future and that they plan to start a family very soon....OoOoOo how I love true love!!!!!!!!
