While this may be difficult for some to remember, there was a time that ‘Single Ladies‘ singer Beyonce wasn’t as guarded she is today.
Indeed, perhaps in a bid to clean up her act before the release of her debut album, 2002 saw this B replaced with a far more demure and at times closeted version of herself, resulting in what many have come to know as a ‘superhuman’ brand of sorts.
The downside to perfection though, is that it leaves room for some to forget that one is still a human being- a lesson the star learned two years ago upon announcing she was expecting a child with her husband, Jay Z.
Now, according to numerous reports, the chart topping philanthropist has opened up on the matter in her forthcoming ‘Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream‘ documentary.
Her moving words- according to USA Today- below…
“She shares footage of her trip to Paris with her nephew. She talks about wanting to “make love” to her husband. She explains why she decided to share her pregnancy news so visibly at the MTV awards.
Most notably: She opens up about her miscarriage two years ago, saying that one week she heard a heartbeat – and the next, nothing. And she talks about how devastating the loss was to her and how she retreated to the studio to deal with it.
Most movingly, she addresses stories that she used a surrogate to carry daughter Blue Ivy, now 1.
“There’s a stupid rumor. The most ridiculous rumor I think I’ve ever had about me. It’s crazy. To think I would be that vain – I respect mothers and women so much and to be able to experience bringing a child into this world, if you’re lucky and fortunate enough to experience that, I would never, ever take that for granted. It’s the most powerful thing you can do. Especially after losing a child, the pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world. It seems like people should have boundaries,” says a visibly shaken Beyonce.”
Catch the documentary in full when it airs February 16th, on HBO.
