It’s been a busy year for Beyonce: giving birth, delivering a powerful performance at Coachella, which fans eventually named ‘Beychella’, releasing an album with hubby JAY-Z and she is currently on tour, On The Run II Tour.

In the September edition of Vogue, Beyonce talks about the birth of her twins, Sir and Rumi, “My health and my babies’ health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section.  We spent many weeks in the NICU. My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, a best friend, and a father.”

Over the last few weeks, fans have spotted Beyonce with a rounder stomach, assuming that she’s pregnant with her fourth child.  Well, Beyonce finally addresses those pregnancy rumours, “I think it’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies. That’s why I stripped away the wigs and hair extensions and used little makeup for this shoot.  To this day my arms, shoulders, breasts, and thighs are fuller. I have a little mommy pouch, and I’m in no rush to get rid of it. I think it’s real. Whenever I’m ready to get a six-pack, I will go into beast zone and work my ass off until I have it. But right now, my little FUPA and I feel like we are meant to be.”

Beyonce also talks about Coachella, “I had a clear vision for Coachella. I was so specific because I’d seen it, I’d heard it, and it was already written inside of me.  One day I was randomly singing the black national anthem to Rumi while putting her to sleep. I started humming it to her every day … I know that most of the young people on the stage and in the audience did not know the history of the black national anthem before Coachella. But they understood the feeling it gave them.”

Beyonce continues, “It was a celebration of all the people who sacrificed more than we could ever imagine, who moved the world forward so that it could welcome a woman of colour to headline such a festival.”

Lastly, Beyonce also took the time to reflect on her legacy, “I’m in a place of gratitude right now.  I am accepting of who I am. I will continue to explore every inch of my soul and every part of my artistry.  I want to learn more, teach more, and live in full.  I’ve worked long and hard to be able to get to a place where I can choose to surround myself with what fulfills and inspires me.”
