“Bey Day” is soon upon us. As international superstar, Beyoncé Knowles- Carter prepares for the airing of her HBO autobiographical documentary, Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream, in addition to her exclusive Oprah’s Next Chapter interview, which will air a mere one hour prior to the premiere of her documentary, more tantalizing tidbits from the highly anticipated interview leak into the media. In the latest news bit, Bey gushes to Oprah about how much she cherishes her relationship with husband, Jay-Z, as well as what it was like returning to work after giving birth to Blue Ivy, reports Necole Bitchie. Peep a few excerpts from the interview below.

On her love for hubby, Jay-Z:

“I would not be the woman I am, if I did not go home to that man. And it just gives me such a foundation. [He has helped me] On so many levels. We were friends first, for a year and half. Before we went on any date, on the phone for a year and a half. And that foundation is so important in a relationship. And just to have someone that you just like, is so important. And someone that is honest.”

On returning to work after giving birth:

“I did a show three months after giving birth, which was crazy. I had clearly never given birth, and I didn’t know that I would gain 60 pounds—57 pounds. I feel so fortunate to do my job. I love my job. I love singing. I love the way it feels.”

On things she had to endure to get where she is today: 

“My life is a journey. … I had to go through my miscarriage, I believe I had to go through owning my company and managing myself … ultimately your independence comes from knowing who you are and you being happy with yourself.”

Check out a brief clip of the interview on the next page. Will you be watching Bey on Oprah’s Next Chapter and the premiere of her documentary when they air tomorrow?

    She just need to sit down and go raise her child some damn where.

  • Just saying!!

    I think these are good questions but as usual she’s not really answering them. Thats annoying. That’s one reason I struggle to watch her interviews. She’s saying a lot without saying anything. Like what??

  • bluekissess

    These comments are just ridiculous. Rather her pregnancy was fake or not a beautiful baby girl was emerged. I honestly think she did wear a fake stomach only to make people not guess how many months she was.

  • Yvette

    I will watch. I just don’t think she will say anything that we haven’t already heard, but I know if anyone can get her to “reveal” something it will be Oprah.

    • Mia

      We’re making a drinking game out of how many times she says “om, um” and make that stupid deer caught in a headlight expression when she’s caught in a lie.

      Girl we’re gonna be so ripped Ned the wino is going to have to drive us home!

  • Wow! this woman is a compulsive liar.

    • Meyaka

      She certainly seem to believe what she says.

    • bluekissess

      Lying about what?

  • Meyaka

    I’m happy she is in love,everyone deserves to feel that way and be felt about in that way. I don’t believe she has that baby and I believe it even less everytime she speaks on it but hey who cares?blue is her and bryonce’s name is on that birth certificate.

  • Mia

    Wow Bey you really put on 60 pounds during your pregnancy? (Side eye….)

    • MLS2698

      I would respond to the title of this story, but I think it’s a trick. * double side eye *

    • bluekissess

      In 2013 this is still the topic? Rather if she was really pregnant or not she has a beautiful baby who is spoiled and loved. Of course then your response will be own it who cares? I would love for you to climb the tallest mountain and say your wrongs. Don’t point the finger if your hands aren’t clean. And no I’m not a “stan” I’m subjective. Would she be less of a women if she had a surrogate? Just let it go already.

      • TRUTH IS

        No she wouldnt but why lie and fake it…..its damaging!! It wouldnt hv made her less of a person if she said she had a surrogate…most folks would hv supported her…..i cant get the lying part at all

        • bluekissess

          Who says she’s lying? People with the same “personal opinions” made you think she’s lying? And why does she have to tell us? The world isn’t going to end. Just let it go.

      • Mia

        Girl shut ur goofy az up! LOL Prophet wannabe az

        • Meyaka

          Rotfl !!!

        • Just saying!!


        • bluekissess

          Are we in a circus because I’ve encountered a clown.

  • rzakia

    I feel like I’ve already seen the episode what with all of the clips and teasers and whatnot. I’m not sure I even need to watch the actual interview anymore.

  • scjiggy@yahoo.com

    I just want to know how much of that 60 lbs deflated on that austrailian tv show when she sat down and “her belly” collapsed??????? THAT IS ALL.

  • mac

    That is adorable. Jigga’s taking care of business!

  • DVR is already set… I can’t wait!!
