Beyoncé hasn’t done interviews in a while but Garage Magazine was lucky enough to catch up with the queen.
During the interview, Bey tells Garage that her biggest hero is her mom Tina Knowles-Lawson.
“My biggest hero is and always will be my mother. She has taught me about caring for others, working hard, and working smart. Everything I know about being a mother comes from the examples she has shown. My mother has instilled confidence in my sister and me and taught us to always be grateful.” Bey also shared her proudest moment, saying, “Out of everything I’ve accomplished, my proudest moment hands down was when I gave birth to my daughter Blue [Ivy].” – Beyonce
She then offered a book recommendation for her fans,
“I would love for my younger fans to read What Will It Take To Make a Woman President? by Marianne Schnall. It’s a collection of interviews and essays by great women, including Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, and Melissa Etheridge. They will inspire you to become a better leader.”
Beyonce also talked about calling the shots in her career.
She explained, “Over time, I have learned to focus on the things I want to focus on in the time frame that I set. I no longer have to work based on someone else’s expectations or pressure. I put enough pressure on myself! I love being 100% involved with all my projects and now I’m fortunate enough to do that.”
She is THE BOSS! This issue of Garage magazine is available now.
