There’s no doubt whatsoever that Beyoncé runs the world. The 29-year-old entertainer covers InStyle magazine September 2011 and dishes on marriage, happiness, sanity, the nine-month break she took from touring, but also on new projects and her free time guilty pleasures.
Beyoncé Knowles became world-famous and managed to reach her goals at a young age through hard work and dedication. “I sacrificed so much as a kid and as a teenager. I have no regrets because my job kept me focused. When you’re young — 18 or 19 — you have the energy and drive. That’s the time to work as hard as you can. Now I’m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children. I want to make my job a part of my lifestyle so that I always enjoy what I’m doing,” she told InStyle.
The stunning entertainer confesses she always has time for her friends and says that, “I am a girl’s girl. Women who don’t have female friends scare me. I love my friends, and I love sitting with them and listening to their stories.”
Beyoncé decided to put her career on hold and take some time off in order to focus on her family and friends. However, she admits that, “It was difficult. I had to turn down great things, but I did it for my sanity, my life, my relationships, my nephew, my husband, my sister, and my friendships. I deserved to give myself time to focus on things besides performing, filming, and recording.”
Even though she has a hectic lifestyle and not so much down time, the beautiful singer reveals that she has one guilty pleasure. “In my free time I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV. I have to confess that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore. I love going to the movies and to Broadway plays too. When I get home, the first thing I do is take off my stilettos”, Beyoncé told in the interview with the magazine.
Beyoncé also dished on one surprising thing about her saying it feels kind of strange when she hears her own songs at a club. “You might be surprised to know that the last thing I want to hear at a club is one of my own songs. I get so uncomfortable. It’s that awkward moment when you know that everyone is watching you to see if you’re gonna bust a move to your own song,” she says.
