Beyonce: Stay the Heck Away from My Ovaries, People!

by at .

In a new cover story for Elle, Beyonce reveals one thing she loves and one thing she hates.

First, the thing she loves -- and it may come as a surprise to fans of the singer:

Beyonce tells this publication that she shops at Target pretty much all the time.

“The last time I went to a supermarket, it was more like a bodega before a Madonna concert,” the singer says a lengthy interview, answering a fan’s question about her shopping habits.

On this same topic, she adds:

“Jay and I snuck into one in Crenshaw and bought some Cuervo and Funyuns chips.

"And…y’all know you see me at Target and I see y’all trying to sneak pics.”

HA! How great is that?!?

Perhaps Beyonce is more like us than we previously thought, with the exception of the whole talent, fame and fortune stuff.

Elsewhere in this interesting feature, the singer talks about past pregnancies, those she lost and those that were successful... along with the one question she can't handle being asked.

"I learned that all pain and loss is, in fact, a gift. Having miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to someone else,” explains the beloved superstar.

She continues as follows:

“Then I had Blue, and the quest for my purpose became so much deeper. I died and was reborn in my relationship, and the quest for self became even stronger. It’s difficult for me to go backwards.

"Being ‘number one’ was no longer my priority. My true win is creating art and a legacy that will live far beyond me. That’s fulfilling."

Beyonce and Jay Z are the parents to a seven-year old daughter named Blue and two-year old twins named Rumi and Sir.

Will the artists ever collaborate (in bed!) in order to give these kids a brother or a sister?

It's a subject constantly on the minds of Beyhive members around the globe, although Beyonce makes it clear here that she REALLY wishes this weren't the case.

"Get off my ovaries!" Beyonce screams as such nosy individuals in this magazine piece.

In general, Beyonce loves being a mother.

And she loves being a singer, of course.

But she can relate to plenty of other working mothers around the world who may be less well-known, but who often have trouble staying on top of all the important things in their lives.

"I think the most stressful thing for me is balancing work and life,” the Grammy winner tells Elle for it January 2020 issue, adding:

“Making sure I am present for my kids -- dropping Blue off at school, taking Rumi and Sir to their activities, making time for date nights with my husband, and being home in time to have dinner with my family -- all while running a company can be challenging."


Perhaps, once again, Beyonce really is more like us than we previously thought.
