Beyonce got candid during her recent Elle U.K interview and opened up about the pressures of being perfect. Because lets be honest, she is. But for the multi Grammy Award winner, who is the publication’s May cover girl, she’s finally learned that it’s all about “purpose” not “perfection.”
Here are three things we learned from the King Bey’s recent chat with Elle, including her efforts to remain a positive force within the industry.
It’s About Purpose: According to the pop star, it took a while before she finally embraced how God made her. “It’s really about changing the conversation. It’s not about perfection. It’s about purpose,” Beyoncé, who celebrated her with wedding anniversary with Jay Z, explained. “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.”
New Active Ivy Park Is To Celebrate A Woman’s Body: “It’s really the essence: to celebrate every woman and the body she’s in while always striving to be better. I called it Ivy Park because a park is our commonality,” the singer said. “We can all go there; we’re all welcomed. It’s anywhere we create for ourselves.”
The Park Is A Safe Place For Beyonce: “For me, it’s the place that my drive comes from,” Beyoncé shared, while talking about Ivy Park. “I think we all have that place we go to when we need to fight through something, set our goals and accomplish them.”
Owning A Company Is A “Burden And A Blessing:” “It’s exciting, but having the power to make every final decision and being accountable for them is definitely a burden and a blessing. To me, power is making things happen without asking for permission,” the 34-year-old revealed. “It’s affecting the way people perceive themselves and the world around them. It’s making people stand up with pride.”
