On the making of Life Is But a Dream for HBO:
“My story has never been told – This movie has healed me in so many ways,” she says. “It makes me want to cry.”

“I’m sorry,” she says, her eyes welling. “I’m very passionate about it, and it just feels good.”

On her upcoming album: “I’m going to be tweaking,” she says of her next album. “I still have things to figure out.”


On traveling with Blue Ivy Carter:
“She’s my road dog,” Beyoncé says. “She’s my homey, my best friend.”

On giving birth
: “I felt very maternal around eight months,” she remembers. “And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . . . But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. . . . We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”

“My family and my closest people were there when I gave birth,” she says. “Everything that scared me just was not present in that room. So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction . . . it was the best day of my life.”


On wanting more children:
“When I was younger, there were moments where I said, ‘I’m not going to have children,’ ” Beyoncé says. “And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don’t know when.”


On learning the business from her father, Mathew Knowles:
“My father taught me so much about being a businesswoman,” she says. “And I’m understanding him a lot now. . . . A lot of the crazy things he did were necessary.”

On her new music celebrating being a wife and a mother:
“Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body,” she says. “I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame.”


On Jay-Z: “Just knowing someone’s always going to be honest and tell the truth,” she says of Jay-Z, “[who] can understand exactly what I’m going through—and I can understand exactly what he’s going through.”
