Beyoncé is many things: a singer, a model (?), a mother and yes, a feminist! Woo hoo! Or something. Although she was reluctant to give herself the title, Mrs. Carter discussed her views on all things ladyhood in the new issue of Vogue UK and admitted that she thinks a lot of shit needs to improve for women, but even she’s a bit apathetic when it comes to activism because who really wants to hear a woman raising hell about how unfair life is?
Take it away, Bey:
“I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman… I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept.”
She also talked about how she “met herself” when she had Her Royal Highness Blue Ivy:
“I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do’. The purpose of my body became completely different.”
Cue the EB readers who think she never gave birth! Come on, do your worst, guys!
