For the September issue of Vogue magazine, Beyoncé gave an interview where she talks about her body, her pregnancy and the birth of her twins Sir and Rumi Carter.
The 36-year-old singer, Jay-Z, made the headlines last week after she revealed that she will be on the cover of the latest issue of Voque magazine. The 36-year-old artist got the right to choose his photographer, Tyler Mitchell, the first African American to make the cover photo of the magazine.
Speaking about the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy, Beyoncé explains how she wanted to lose weight quickly to shape her body.
"After the birth of my first child, I believed in the things society said about my body. I lobbied to lose weight in three months and organized a little tour to make sure I would do it. When I think about it, I see it was crazy. "
Discussing the birth of her twins and her cesarean section, Beyoncé confides in the acceptance of her body.
"During my convalescence, I learned to love myself and take care of myself, accepting myself with my round shapes. I accepted what my body wanted to be.
"Today, my arms, my shoulders, my breasts and my thighs are wider. I have a little mother’s belly and I’m in no hurry to get rid of it. I think it’s genuine. "
"If one day I want abdominals, I’ll work like crazy to get them. But for the moment, my little belly and I have the impression of being right. I think it is important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty of their natural bodies. "
About her decision to work with Tyler Mitchell, Queen Bey thinks it’s important to open doors for young artists.
"There are so many cultural and societal barriers that I do my best to put everyone on an equal footing, to present a different perspective for people who may feel that their voice does not count. Imagine, if no one had given a chance to the bright women who came before me: Josephine Baker, Nina Simone, Eartha Kitt, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, and the list goes on. They have opened doors for me and I hope that I am doing everything in my power to open the doors to the new generation of talent. "
Speaking about her past, Beyoncé talks about her many performances, including Coachella and the On the Run II tour.
"I had a very clear vision for Coachella. I was so precise because I had seen it, I had heard it, and it was already written in me. One day I sang the Black National Anthem in Rumi while sleeping. I started humming every day.
The integrator in her concert at Coachella, Beyoncé explains: "I swear I felt a pure joy shine on us. I know most young people on the stage and the public did not know the Black National Anthem story before Coachella. But they understood the emotion that it gave them. It was a celebration of all the people who sacrificed themselves more than we imagine, who have moved the world forward so that we can welcome a woman of color at the head of a festival like this. "
"One of the most memorable moments of the On The Run II tour for me was the Berlin concert at the Olympiastadion, the site of the 1936 Olympic Games," she says, "this venue has been used to promote a rhetoric of hate, racism and division and it is this place where Jesse Owens won 4 gold medals, destroying the myth of white supremacy. Less than 90 years later, two black people played there in a full stadium. "
