BEYONCE TALKS MARRIAGE, CHILDREN AND ‘JERSEY SHORE’

Posted in Beyonce on August 16, 2011 by fadedblog

Beyonce is opening up about being a wife — and possibly becoming a mom!

During her 9-month career hiatus, the 29-year-old superstar spent a lot of time with husband Jay-Z, 41. “It was great to be a wife and travel with him,” she tells InStyle‘s September issue (out Friday).

Beyonce says that taking time off wasn’t an option — it was a necessity. “I had to turn down great things,” she reveals. “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.”

As for her favourite activity? “In my free time, I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV,” Beyonce confesses. “I have to confess that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore.

And with her 30th birthday on September 4, she is talking about possible additions to her family. "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."

Posted in Beyonce, Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian on November 23, 2010 by fadedblog

Looking lovely as always, Beyonce hosted the Lorraine Schwartz “2BHAPPY” Jewelry Collection launch at Lavo in New York City on Monday night (November 22).

Though she’s a happily married woman, the sexy singer was in the mood to party with her girlfriends as Blake Lively and Mary J. Blige joined her during her glitzy night out. Even tabloid star Kim Kardashian and her creepy sidekick Jonathan Cheban were there, too!

Beyonce looked gorgeous in a slim-fitting white shift as she modelled bracelets and earrings from the collection on the red carpet.

Despite Us Weekly‘s recent claims to the contrary, the 29-year-old put any lingering pregnancy rumours to rest as she showed off her slim figure and flat stomach.

Newly single Blake, meanwhile, was sizzling in blush-coloured Versace dress and Christian Louboutin heels.
The Gossip Girl completed the sleek look with bangles from the collection.

As for Kim? Well, let’s just say that it appears her promotional duties have taken precendence over her daily workouts.

Meanwhile, Beyonce says she is tired of the baby rumours.

“At this point, they say that I’ve been pregnant like eight times, so I am kind of used to it,” she said in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday. “I just hope that one day when I decide to be pregnant that people are happy for me. … One day hopefully I will be. It’s part of being a celebrity, I guess.”

Showing off her million dollar smile, Beyonce attended a screening of I AM…World Tour at the School of Visual Arts Theater in New York City today (November 21).

It was a family affair as the R&B songstress was joined by her parents Matthew and Tina Knowles as she viewed the full-length concert film lensed during her record-breaking international concert tour.

Meanwhile, Beyonce’s follow-up to I Am…Sasha Fierce might become her most ambitious effort yet as she say she’ll be attempting to create her own genre of music.

“I love to dance, I love to sing, and I’m actually in the studio now writing songs and producing, and I have a lot of live instruments that I’m putting into the tracks to try to change the sound and make my own genre of music,” Beyonce recently told Entertainment Tonight.

Last September, one of the musicians involved in the studio project, Ne-Yo, teased about Beyonce “definitely having her own agenda.” He added that she is an artist who has a clear vision of what she wants to do, “She’s going to give you directions [like] ‘Here’s where I’m going, so here’s where I need you to be.'”

Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow says she got advice from her good pal Beyonce before performing at the CMA Awards earlier this week.

The 38-year-old said that she was suffering badly with nerves so decided to get help from other singers.

She explained to Access Hollywood: “I kind of asked my girl singer friends for advice. I asked Faith Hill a lot of questions – and Beyonce actually too. I studied Beyonce a lot, and her concerts, for her kind of confidence – and I’m lucky that I know some singers in real life.”

After spending the day taking in the sights and scenery with friends and family, the happily married couple could later be seen enjoying a romantic dinner for two before taking to the water for a late night voyage.

While Jay kept things sensible in the footwear department by donning a pair of comfy hightops, lady love Beyonce was forced to navigate the city’s famous cobbled streets in a pair of sky-high camouflage-print boots.

Meanwhile, Jay has much to celebrate while on holiday. He was recently named the highest-earning hip hop star for the second year running.

Beyonce kicked back and captured the moments as she enjoyed a romantic holiday with her husband Jay-Z in Portoferraio, Italy today (Augist 20).

Meanwhile, Beyonce may look amazing on stage and the red carpet, but the Halo hit maker admits that at home she is messy.

Revealing her bad habit, she explained: “I promise I’m working on this, but I could be less messy at home and keep the clothes in my closet and off the floor!”

Elsewhere in her interview with Self magazine, Beyonce said that she finds it difficult to switch off and relax — she even thinks about work during her time off!

“I love going to dinners, seeing plays, visiting museums and spending time with family and friends,” says the Single Ladies star. “I know it’s time to jump back into my work when everything I do starts inspiring lyrics and melodies and I can’t keep myself out of the studio.”
