It’s Beyonce mania around this bish!!! In this episode of Beyonce speaks It’s Harper’s Magazine and Beyonce talks about her love for Jay Z and her choice to reveal her baby bump at the VMA’s versus coming out and just saying that she was pregnant.
Here are a few excerpts from November’s Harper’s Bazaar Cover Story:
On revealing her pregnancy at the VMAs
“I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself,” Beyoncé explains. The orange Lanvin caftan she wore for the big moment was the last of an epic near-70 gowns she considered. “I was extremely nervous. It was the toughest red carpet I ever did.
“I didn’t want a crazy picture or gossip story to break the news, so I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”
On her forthcoming House of Dereon maternity collection
“All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman,” she says. “It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant. Flowy fabrics are always flattering,” she says, “but I still rock my stilettos.
“I’ve had so much fun with fashion over the months,” she adds. “I have been pregnant through every event I’ve done, from the Billboard Awards to Glastonbury.”
On her marriage with husband Jay-Z
We have been together since I was 20 years old. We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married. I admire his ability to inspire others. To me, Jay represents the American dream. Jay’s music has helped define our generation. All that he has overcome and worked to achieve gives millions hope that they can become whatever they want to be. I respect him so much; he is a great man and a great artist.
We focused three years on our marriage and found that it brought us an even stronger bond and connection. But like anything great and successful in your life, marriage takes hard work and sacrifice. It has to be something both you and your husband deeply want. The best thing about marriage is the amount of growth you have because you can no longer hide from your fears and insecurities. There’s someone right there calling you out on your flaws and building you up when you need the support. If you are with the right person, it brings out the best version of you.
On where she is right now in life
I am finally at the stage in my life where I am not so concerned with other people’s opinions about my life decisions. It is so liberating to really know what I want, what truly makes me happy, what I will not tolerate. I have learned that it is no one else’s job to take care of me but me.
Tom Ford stated that Beyoncé is a force, after she modeled for him in his celeb-packed Spring 2011 show, a major salvo in her high-fashion assault. “She radiates positive energy. That is what true stars do. You feel it when you are around her, you feel it when you see her perform, you feel it when she sings, and you feel it when she looks you in the eyes and smiles.”
Now that is what you call a compliment!
