Beyoncé‘s unannounced self-titled album is absolutely smashing records left and right, and for good reason – it’s a damn good record, with a clever concept in the whole “visual album” thing. No one does it quite like Beyoncé, and no one’s more aware of that than the lady herself, who insists that she’s worked harder than anyone she knows to get everything she has (but that doesn’t really matter, because she still cares about Blue Ivy more than anything fame can bring).
“I have a lot of awards and I have a lot of these things that are amazing and I worked my ass off. I worked harder than probably anyone I know to get those things. But nothing feels like my child saying, ‘Mommy!’ Nothing feels like when I look my husband in the eyes.
“Nothing feels like I’m respected, when I get on the stage and see I’m changing people’s lives. Those are the things that matter, and at this point in my life, that’s what I’m striving for.”
I mean, that’s all pretty cliché, to be honest, but I’m sure that’s how she feels… except she would never give up fame, either. Also, I say this as a Bey fan, but girl… I don’t think you’ve worked harder than everyone else. I don’t doubt that she’s worked her ass off bigtime, but just because it’s paid off for her more than it has for some others who may not have had the same opportunities set up for them doesn’t make her work more respectable. IDK, let me not get too deep with Beyoncé here.
