She did a candid Q&A that is an Elle cover story, released Monday. In the “Ask Me Anything” interview, Bey was asked about awards, and if she was “disappointed” after losing out on awards for her album, Lemonade, as well as her concert film, Homecoming.”I began to search for deeper meaning when life began to teach me lessons I didn’t know I needed,” Bey replied to the question. “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. Then I had Blue, and the quest for my purpose became so much deeper,” she continued. “I died and was reborn in my relationship, and the quest for self became even stronger. It’s difficult for me to go backwards.”
And when it comes to the one questions he absolutely hates, that would be: “Are you pregnant? Get off my ovaries!”
“The name of the brand comes from where I built my strength and endurance as a young woman. I ran and trained in the park, and that state of mind has stayed with me all these years later,” she explained.
“It’s the first place where I learned to listen to my body. Many of us grew up seeing our parents act as if they were superheroes. Most women have been conditioned to ignore symptoms and just ‘tough it out’ and focus on taking care of everyone else before themselves. I am no longer one of those people.”
