Beyonce covers Cosmopolitan UK April 2011 offering an interesting interview to the mag, tackling different subjects from her life.

Her main objectives in life are also discussed, such as building up a healthy self-image which is extremely important in showbiz, being able to handle all the delicate and scandalous situations with success. Take a closer peek at the excerpts from the interview offered by Beyonce to Cosmopolitan UK, you might event learn some useful tricks from the uber-popular singer.

The first discussion was having at its center the way she likes to play up her sexiness, to which she answered: “You should put on good music and something that makes you feel great. I love a pair of high, sexy stilettos with a beautiful dress, but you have to find out what works for you – whether it’s doing the whole smokey eyes thing or a natural look. And never be predictable. Mix it up, surprise him, change your hair – be the woman he knows with a little bit of a twist.”

Those who were rookies in the art of styling will have the chance to steal these celebrity tricks and win back their self-confidence.

Additionally, she was also asked about the most charming thing a woman can have. Beyonce claimed that: “The most alluring thing a woman can have is confidence. You can be beautiful but if you’re not secure in yourself, you don’t come across as sexy. You have to feel good about yourself to make others feel good about you. Don’t focus on the bits you don’t like. Look at yourself in a different way and work out what it is you do like.”

Celebrities often reveal their weaknesses when it comes to foods and delicious treats, in order to shrink the great distance between them and their fans as well as to look more human to the public. Here’s Beyonce’s weakness, “I love my butter pecan ice cream, but I also love to work out. We all have our issues. Mine is arms and legs, keeping them tight and toned. It takes work, believe me.”

In spite of her super-busy schedule Beyonce still has time for her favorite hobbies. As she told the mag, “I did all these things I wanted to do that I don’t have time for. I set up a production company, learnt how to edit, did a bit of recording and directed a DVD. What was great was having this normal life of sleeping, getting up, going to an office and then coming home. Coming home is a wonderful thing… I even did some cooking, although I didn’t really enjoy that. I’m not the greatest cook – I can do good things with oxtail, though. It was great just having the time to be a wife rather than this non-stop traveling career girl.”

Last but not least, she is also asked whether she plans to start a family in the near future. Beyonce’s answer was the following: “Yes, I do want to embrace what happens next and family. It’s funny how your outlook changes as you get older, how you look at life – at other women – in a different way. I have so much admiration for women who are mothers, who balance family and work.”
