Okay Ladies Now Let's Get In Formation: Beyonce covers Elle

Okay Ladies Now Let's Get In Formation: Beyonce covers Elle

If you haven't heard the Queen B has gracefully covered Elle France, Quebec, Netherlands, and Sweden. Showing us what it really means to run the world! In her exclusive interview with Elle she talks about feminism, freedom, and her new active wear line Ivy Park.  
Here are a few of our favorite questions from her interview. Be inspired!

You've talked in the past about the pressure of perfectionism.

It's really about changing the conversation. It's not about perfection. It's about purpose. We have to care about our bodies and what we put in them. Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health—take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish. The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself.

What do you feel people don't understand about who you really are, and in particular about the message you've put forward with "Formation"?

I mean, I'm an artist and I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood. But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. But let's be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I'm proud of what we created and I'm proud to be a part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way.

What do you want to accomplish with the next phase of your career?

I hope I can create art that helps people heal. Art that makes people feel proud of their struggle. Everyone experiences pain, but sometimes you need to be uncomfortable to transform. Pain is not pretty, but I wasn't able to hold my daughter in my arms until I experienced the pain of childbirth!
