Today is basically the best day of my life. Curious as to why? Well, my girl Beyonce is dishing on her high profile career, her work and her favorite role, mommy to baby beauty Blue Ivy Carter. A day that involves writing B is single-handedly the best day E-V-E-R.
As we all know, Bey keeps it pretty low key. She's never one to divulge too much and it makes us all the more eager to stalk out find out everything there is to know about her. She's the most iconic star of our time, with influential music that spans across the pop, hip-hop, rap and R&B industries and a gazillion trophies to prove it. She's a successful designer, her House of Dereon line has given new life to fashions for women of all shapes and sizes. She's also an entrepreneur, proud wife to her husband, Jay Z and most recently, a mom. You can't escape Beyonce. She is everything. Everywhere. So seriously, the fact that she is opening up the door to her private life in this month's edition of GQ is both breathtaking and magical. I want to cry tears of joy and simultaneously hug myself.
So, now that I've finished up my ode to Beyonce, lets move on to watch the songstress is saying about her career and her lovable role as mommy. Bey says that right before she gave birth to Blue, she felt "lost" in her career. She says, "I love my job, but it's more than that: I need it." A lot of mothers can relate, too. It's not totally out of the box that a woman still desires her career in addition to motherhood.
And Bey's dedication to her career isn't just a 9-5 thing. But neither is her commitment to her growing girl, who just celebrated her first birthday on January 7th. Since her daughter's birth, Beyonce has taken a hiatus from her music. "I worked so hard during my childhood to meet this goal: By the time I was 30 years old, I could what I want. I've reached that. I feel very fortunate to be in that position. But I've sacrificed a lot of things, and I've worked harder than probably anyone I know, at least in the music industry. So I just have to remind myself that I deserve it."
