Beyonce recently sat down for an interview with Garage Magazine for their Spring/Summer issue. Beyonce has not given an official interview in over a year. She sits down with mag and opens up on several issues including her mother, Blu Ivy and being a boss!!
Check the highlights below:
ON HER PROUDEST MOMENT: “Out of everything I’ve accomplished, my proudest moment hands down was when I gave birth to my daughter Blue.”
ON THE ARTS: “I find myself most drawn to painting and photography. There’s a release and an immediacy there that helps me escape from my other projects…My mother is a huge art collector and she always encouraged me from a young age to invest in art. I travel a lot and I love going to art galleries and museums in different cities with my family and friends. I’m really into the work of Kara Walker, Tracey Emin, Aaron Young, and Donald Judd.”
ON BEING A BOSS: “Over time, I have learned to focus on the things I want to focus on in the time frame that I set. I no longer have to work based on someone else’s expectations or pressure. I put enough pressure on myself! I love being 100% involved with all my projects and now I’m fortunate enough to do that.”
ON LITERATURE: “I would love for my younger fans to read What Will It Take To Make a Woman President? by Marianne Schnall. It’s a collection of interviews and essays by great women, including Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, and Melissa Etheridge. They will inspire you to become a better leader.”
