Beyonce has taken over pretty much the entire world in the media in the last week, and yesterday was definitely her time to celebrate in NYC.
The 4 singing sensation headed to her big screening of her new self-titled album Beyoncé at the SVA theater where she faced fans and the press for the first time since it’s secret release on iTunes.
With guests ready to be entertained all night with goodie bags and some answers, Bey finally made her debut and answered some of her fans’ questions that they submitted via a #askbeyonce hashtag on Instagram.
The queen was a vision of perfection dressed in Tom Ford from head to toe, a look straight from the runway that appeared in the designer’s 2014 Spring collection.
Check out some snippets from her Q&A session below:
On her inspiration: “It’s interesting how motherhood changes you and it changes your perspective on life. I took all the things that I wanted to change about myself and all the things I wanted to share, and I put it into this record.”
On the message behind BEYONCÉ: “More than the music, I’m proud of myself as a woman. The biggest message is owning your imperfections and all the things that make you interesting because I refuse to allow someone to put me in anybody’s box.”
On secretly releasing it to iTunes: “I just got off the stage, I had a glass of wine and my cousin Angie was like, ‘Are you alright?’ because I was talking to myself and I was terrified. I was so scared. I had already gone through all the horrible ways it could go in my mind… I saw it live on iTunes and I waited for the first comment. Then I woke up the next morning and… [breaks into dance].”
On the birth of ‘Yonce: “We were in the studio, and Justin Timberlake started beating on buckets. So, when you hear the beat, it’s literally a bucket. … And Dream just started, ‘Yoncé on his mouth like liquor,’ and I’m like, ‘What does that mean?’ But I love it, I think Beyoncé is Beyoncé, Mrs. Carter is Beyoncé, Sasha Fierce is Beyoncé. And I’m finally at a place where I don’t have to separate the two. It’s all pieces of me, and just different elements of a personality of a woman, because we are complicated.”
On taking charge of her career: “My father taught me so, so much. When I decided to manage myself, it was important to me not to sign to some big company. I wanted to follow in Madonna’s footsteps and be a powerhouse. When you get to this level, you don’t have to share your money or your success… And we did it. And it’s my company.”
It seems like there isn’t much Beyonce CAN’T do at this point!
