Beyoncé’s publicity team is working overtime these days. As the diva prepares for her Mrs. Carter world tour, King Bey spoke with British Vogue about motherhood, music, and why she loves being Jay-Z’s wife.
Although many have labeled her a feminist based on her girl-powered anthems, Beyonce’s latest effort, “Bow Down,” had many wondering if she was singing a new tune.
In her British Vogue interview, Beyoncé is reportedly “unusually candid” about her personal life, a topic that was previous off limits until she lifted the veil last year.
After admitting that motherhood gave her a sense of “audacity” and she loves doting on her family, like all women, Bey is defining her life on her own terms.
“I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been.
“It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do’. The purpose of my body became completely different.”
In the past, Beyoncé has sidestepped branding herself with the F-word, but in the May cover story she told the glossy she believes in equality and considers herself to be a modern-day feminist, a label that will no doubt excite or enrage others.
“I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman… I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept.”
