Beyonce Tells Piers Morgan She Won’t Retire Any Time Soon … But Might Have a Baby
Would Beyonce still be able to shake her bootylicious groove thang a-la ‘Run the World (Girls)’ if she were expecting a baby? We may be about to find out. The fierce 29-year-old superstar sat down with CNN’s Piers Morgan for an hour-long interview on June 27, where she opened up about her plans for 30, which once included a baby and retirement.
“I always said I would have a baby at 30 — I’m 29,” B said with a chuckle. The songstress, who will enter the next decade on Sept 4, isn’t sure she’ll hold onto her plans. She added, “But I also said I was going to retire at 30, so I don’t know. Who knows. I’m not retiring, I’ll tell you that!”
A relief for music fans everywhere, because we know we couldn’t survive another break like the one she took in 2010 — much less a full on goodbye. Though, Bey learned a lot about herself in that time, including her destiny to perform. “I learned a lot about myself. The biggest thing is I love to perform. I love music. I love what I do,” she said of her mini-vacation. “I love singing in the studio and writing songs and coming up with video treatments to the point that, during that year, I do not count the 72 I recorded as work, because it’s what I was born to do.”
But the foundation of her ‘work,’ Beyonce relished, is love. “Love is the foundation of everything I do. My music is inspired by love. And from my family from my husband, from my sisters, it gives me the security and the confidence that you see on the stage,” she admitted to CNN. Her husband, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, has been a rock for the Destiny’s Child famer since day one. “I definitely had a very natural connection and friendship with him,” Bey said. “We’ve been together for a very long time, and I’m very happy.” She continued, “Jay and I have, kind of, made a decision that we want to be known for our music, and not our relationships or scandals. It’s hard, because sometimes I can’t talk about him, but he’s amazing.”
The Queen B also took the chance to touch on race, and said that she dealt with racism “a bit” growing up. Of course when it comes to her music, she doesn’t believe that it matters what race she is, or that her fans even think about it. “I feel like now people, at least with my career, I’ve kind of broken barriers. I don’t think people think about my race,” the hitmaker revealed. “I think they look at me as an entertainer and a musician, and I’m very happy that that’s changing, because that’s how I look at people and that’s how I look at my friends. It’s not about color and race. I’m just happy that it’s changing.”
