She Learned from Her Past
"After the birth of my first child, I believed in the things society said about how my body should look," Beyonce continued. "I put pressure on myself to lose all the baby weight in three months and scheduled a small tour to assure I would do it. Looking back, that was crazy."
"After six months, I started preparing for Coachella," Beyonce said of her hugely beloved return to the stage this year after welcoming the twins. "I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol and all fruit drinks. But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my fuller curves. My kids and husband did, too."
Will She Ever Get Plastic Surgery?
It sure doesn't sound that way, even though Beyonce wasn't asked directly. But she says: "I think it's important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies."
Her Family's Past is Her Prologue
Beyonce has never really said anything such as the following before about her relatives: "I come from a lineage of broken male-female relationships, abuse of power and mistrust. Only when I saw that clearly was I able to resolve those conflicts in my own relationship. Connecting to the past and knowing our history makes us both bruised and beautiful."
Does She Address Jay-Z's Cheating in the Interview?
Sort of: "There are many shades on every journey," she says here. "Nothing is black or white. I've been through hell and back, and I'm grateful for every scar. I have experienced betrayals and heartbreaks in many forms. I have had disappointments in business partnerships as well as personal ones, and they all left me feeling neglected, lost and vulnerable."
She is Beyonce. Hear Her Roar!
"Through it all I have learned to laugh and cry and grow," she explains. "I look at the woman I was in my 20s and I see a young lady growing into confidence but intent on pleasing everyone around her. I now feel so much more beautiful, so much sexier, so much more interesting. And so much more powerful."
