The second part of Beyonce’s interview with Anderson Cooper came out. And inside the singer reveals how being a mommy completely changed her to the point that she even loves changing the diapers.
Read the highlights and watch the video below.
On feeling different:
“Well, [having a child] just gives you purpose and all of the things that my self esteem was associated with, it’s all completely different. I realized why I was born and more than anything all of the things I want to pass onto my child and the best way of doing that is not by preaching or telling her, but showing her by example, which is one of the reasons I’m here. I don’t want to preach, I want her to learn by what I do.”
On diapers and singing lullabies:
“I love changing diapers. I love every moment. It’s so beautiful. I love it all.
[..]I sing nursery rhymes and I’m mommy and when she sees me – today was the first time she saw me perform in rehearsal – she was very confused. I sing all of them. I make up actually a lot of crazy, corny songs…”
Azealia Banks recently sat down with Rolling Stone magazine and when asked about her idol, said Beyonce was definitely one of them.
“I love Beyonce – she’s the queen of everything. She’s the most remarkable performer and musician. And this is just my humble opinion, but I just think she’s better than everyone else making music right now.
I met her – and I cried! It was so embarrassing. It was at the Met Ball. I was f-cking around with Kanye and she was sitting there, chilling and eating dinner. I freaked out. And I realized she saw me being a dummy and I started crying. Then I saw her expression, like, “Girl, get your sh-t together.” I had to walk away and get myself together and pat my face, then come back to properly say hi! And if I meet her again someday, I’ll probably cry again.”
She also talked about her sexuality and the use of the word ‘cunt’ so often:
“Well, I’m from Harlem. I went to art school; I grew up with the cunts. And that term doesn’t come from me! People think I invented it, but I didn’t. To be cunty is to be feminine and to be, like, aware of yourself. Nobody’s f-cking with that inner strength and delicateness. The cunts, the gay men, adore that. My friends would say, “Oh you need to cunt it up! You’re being too banjee.” Banjee means unrefined and rough. You need your cunts: they fix your hair for you and do your makeup. They give you confidence and give you life.
[..] I’m bisexual, so it makes sense [to support gays and same sex marriages].”
