If you’re a person who becomes slightly nauseated at the thought of King Bey making headlines even more than she already does, brace yourself. First, it was that amazing Super Bowl halftime show performance. Then, it was the dramatized announcement of her world tour, “The Mrs. Carter Show”. And now, according to a recent announcement on Oprah.com, Blue Ivy’s mama will be appearing on an exclusive episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.
“Oprah goes one-on-one with Grammy-winning artist Beyoncé Knowles in her first sit-down interview since the biggest performance of the year at the big game,” the website reads.
While the announcement doesn’t give away much and leaves question marks in most of our minds, it gives enough to reel us in. The exclusive interview is set to air Saturday, February 16th at 8/7c, which is ironically the same say that her HBO documentary is set to air.
2013 is certainly looking like Bey’s year, as Vogue‘s March 2013 cover was somehow leaked and King Bey is on the cover looking as fabulous as ever. This seems pretty fitting as the March issue is also the Power 2013 issue, and we all know Mrs. Knowles-Carter has been making some major power moves lately. In the issue, Bey discusses her babygirl Blue Ivy and how much being a mom has changed her. Check out some of the interview’s highlights.
On her relationship with Blue Ivy:
“She’s my road dog. She’s my homey, my best friend. I felt very maternal around eight months. And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . . . But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. . . . We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.
I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more. Family has always been important. I’ve always had my mother and my father and my husband. But it’s just. . . . Life is so much more than. . . It’s not defined by any of this.”
On her desire for another child:
“When I was younger, there were moments where I said, ‘I’m not going to have children.’ And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don’t know when.”
Wonder if we’ll get a glimpse of that fab mommy-daughter relationship Bey is talking about in her Oprah interview.
