Beyonce covers InStyle magazine’s September 2011 issue. Wearing a shimmering, black and gold Dolce & Gabbana dress adorned with stars, Bey literally shines!
Inside, she talks female friends, free time and (finally!) motherhood:
On changing her focus after taking a break:
“I sacrificed so much as a kid and as a teenager. I have no regrets because my job kept me focused. 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.”
On what she does in her down time:
“In my free time I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV. I have to confess that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore.”
“I am a girl’s girl. Women who don’t have female friends scare me. I love my friends, and I love sitting with them and listening to their stories.”
