A few nights ago
my bff in my head Beyonce Knowles-Carter aka King Bey made a rare appereance in New York for her self-titled visiual album listening party….
Baddie Bey showed up looking flawless rocking a super sexy black Tom Ford dress with matching boots. During the event she held a Q&A segment answering five questions submitted by her fans via Instagram.
Beyonce also opened up about why she decided to drop her album without any warning, promotion or marketing from the label.
This is a project that I didn’t think was possible actually. I’ve never done anything so brave in my life and the amount of personal growth from this project is unlike anything that I’ve ever done. I took all of my insecurities, all of my doubts, all of my fears, and everything I’ve learned over the last 17 years and applied it to this project. It’s interesting how motherhood changes you, and it changes your perspective on life and I took all the things that I wanted to change about myself, and all the things I wanted to share and I put it in this record. And I’m proud of it. More than the music, I’m proud of myself. The biggest message is owning your imperfections, and all the things that make you interesting because I refuse to allow someone to put me in anybody’s box.
She also opened up about managing herself after she decided to let her father go and talked about hiring a team of women who nobody else believed it to help with her project:
She You know, I started my own company and my father taught me so, so much, so much….. And when I decided to manage myself, it was important that I didn’t go to some big management company. I felt like I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire and show other women when you get to this point in your career, you don’t have to go sign with someone else and share your money, and your success, you can do it yourself. So I found a team of underdogs, a team of women, a team of people that no one believed in, and we worked together and we stayed up all night and we were progressive and we did not follow the rules and we said, ‘Why can’t we do it?’ and I don’t think people believed, you know? I said to so many people, ‘I have an idea to do a visual album,’ and everyone was like ‘Ok.’ And we did it! And not only did we do it, it’s my company and I’m very proud of that.
