Beyoncé Knowles, although keeping things private, finally opens up to her Beyhive in Elle magazine as they try to take a dive into her life.
Beyoncé being a diverse musician and CEO of Parkwood Entertainment, had a lot to say on creativity, life, and power. She also talked about her new collaboration with Adidas.
One of the big questions asked was how she handles disappointments in her life, especially in regard to Homecoming.
“Success looks different to me now. 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,” Said Beyoncé on Elle.
She went on to say that when she had Blue, her quest for purpose became deeper and even stronger.
“I died and was reborn in my relationship, and the quest for self became even stronger. It’s difficult for me to go backwards.” She said
In Bey’s journey through life, she has found confidence, strength, and endurance from all her experiences during pregnancies. She encourages women to take care of themselves and not just “tough it out”.
During the interview, she was also asked about her partnership with Adidas. She replied that she is very excited about this internship.
“My mother instilled in me the idea that creativity starts with taking a leap of faith—telling your fears they are not allowed where you are headed. And I’m proud to do that with Adidas,” she said. “I love experimenting with fashion, mixing high and low, sportswear with couture, even masculine and feminine. This new line is fun and lends itself to creativity, the ultimate power.”
Bey also talks about why it is important for her to work with female directors. She says that as a woman, if you are too opinionated, too strong-willed, too anything, you are disregarded. But the female directors she worked with handle her opinion with grace and respects and this gives room for an ego-less non-political relationship.
No questions were left unanswered, she even went as far as telling a joke which she said Blue will end up “killing” her because it was terrible.
