Multiple award-winning American singer, Beyonce Knowles has explained why she featured Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adichie in her new album.
Explaining why she featured the�Half of a Yellow Sun�author in one of her songs entitled:�Flawless, Beyonce in a chat with UK Mirror said, �I was going through videos on feminity on Youtube, when I came across this video of this incredible Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie.
�Everything she said is exactly how I feel. My message in this album was finding the beauty in imperfection,” Bey continues.
�I had this image of this trophy and me accepting these awards and kind of training myself to be a champion and at the end of the day when you go through all of these things, is it worth it? I mean, you get this trophy and you’re like, ‘I basically starved, I have neglected all the people that I love, I’ve conformed to what everybody else thinks I should be and I have this trophy. What does that mean?
�The trophy represents all of the sacrifices I made as a kid, all the time I lost being on the road in the studios as a child and I just want to throw that s**t up!”
The star also spoke about her daughter, Blue Ivy and hubby Jay Z, and what she’s up to lately.
Hear her, �I have a lot of awards and I have a lot of these things that are amazing and I worked my ass off, I worked harder than probably everybody I know to get those things, but nothing feels like my child singing ‘mummy’.”
The megastar mum-of-one then goes on to say she’s striving for for love, happiness and fun.
�No, nothing feels like when I look my husband in the eyes, nothing feels like when I’m respected, when I get on the stage and I see I’m changing peoples lives. Those are the things that matter and at this point in my life that’s what I’m striving for � growth, love, happiness, fun.”
She also gave one final piece of advice to her fans, �Enjoy your life � its short. That’s the message!” she added.
