If you follow Beyoncé on Instagram, you may have seen her ask her followers and fans to submit video questions about her self titled album under the hashtag #AskBeyonce. Well, she finally answered those questions in a release party and screening promoting the album on Saturday at the School of Visual Arts in New York. She addressed how she was able to keep everything secret, the trepidation she felt before releasing it and how she was able to be so sexually expressive on this record. Check out a few highlights and then watch the entire 11 min conference in the video below.


“I just got off the stage, it was 11:30 once I took off. I had a glass of wine and my cousin Angie was like, ‘Girl, are you alright?’ because I was talking to myself and I was terrified. I was so scared. I had already envisioned the worst things that could happen. I’m like ‘People, are going to hate it! Why didn’t I say anything?’ Audience gasps and what not.—No, it’s just things that we all go through. It’s just human.—And I was just really nervous because this was a huge risk. And when I landed I saw it actually live on iTunes and you’re waiting for the first comment. The next morning I just was… starts dancing and smiling. Thank you Lord.”

Her personal life and being so sexually expressive

“You know I’ve always been very generous on the stage. I took all of my pain, all of my joy and I performed, I used it in my performance. But I’m very private, I’m very respectful. And it just took me no longer being someone’s child, you know? Once I became a mother, I felt like I could tear down those fourth walls. I just felt like it was time. I completely feel liberated and I felt like I could no longer create my art for other people. So I just felt like it was time.”

Check out the video to see where the name Yoncé came from, breaking the rules and more.

    Dear Beyonce
    Why are you and your horse faced husband WORSHIPPING THE DEVIL ON FILM AND ON YOUR ALBUMS? Why is he on tape wearing a tee shirt with the slogan of CHILD MOLESTING CHILD MURDERER ALEISTER CROWLEY WHO WROTE THE SATANIC BIBLE, on it? For the inevitable dumbazzes that will defend these idiots out of sheer ignorance, Jay Z who likes to call himself “JeHOVA” is on tape wearing a “Do WHAT THOU WILT” tee shirt which is the first line of the SATANIC BIBLE. Google it before making an azz out of yourselves defending these people.

    Oh and Bey? Why is it when we go to YOUTUBE and google “satan worship in hip hop or RNB” videos come up with YOU making “devil horn signs”? And why does JAY-Z’S songs contain backwards masking that says “Murder murder Jesus 666”?

    Now for you idiots who will reflexively defend anything without knowing jackisht about it, go to youtube and search for “Jay-Z Deception”, and most of these things will be PROVEN in that one video. But while you’re there, look around at the HUNDREDs OF OTHER VIDEOS that PROVE Jay-Z, Beyonce, Rihanna worship SATAN. Oh and don’t forget resident DUMBAZZ NlGGA Kanye West! ( caught on tape wearing satanic pentagrams AND tee shirts with the image of BALPHOMET (demon) on them and who is posing with an UPSIDE DOWN CROSS on his new album blasphemously entitled “Yeezy”.

    These are just a FEW of the questions that I’D like answered by this POS!

    I wouldn’t consider myself as a stan but I think she did a good job. I think she is genuine. This is the first full album that I bought and I like it. Good job, Mrs. Carter.

    I love it!! It’s good to see another side of her. She’s been in the game for years and already established a good reputation for herself so letting loose once in a while is good thing.

    I ain’t hatin’. I love the album and her work. Lots of skin, though, wasn’t expecting that but I guess she’s “free” now.
