Beyonce opens up about life after Blue Ivy

This week it was announced that Beyonce was chosen as People Magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful Person. Now we’re getting some clips from the interview. She opens up about going a bit more low-key since the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy. She’s trading in her high heels for flats, and is doing her own hair (gasp!).

Beyonce on her high heels: ‘I never thought there would be a day when I wouldn’t wear heels. Now that I have a child, I walk around holding her all day, I’m buying loafers and oxfords. I love them, because they’re comfortable, and shorter heels too. [Jay-Z] loves it when I wear flat shoes, which is surprising – he never saw me in flats before! He likes me more natural – just he relaxed, natural me.’

She does her own hair too: ‘I recently cut two inches myself – I just parted it in the middle and chh-chh-chh!’

On breastfeeding and workouts: Beyoncé also revealed how breast-feeding her little one for ten weeks helped her lose ‘the bulk’ of her pregnancy weight, but that she’s now on a strict-protein based diet. She now works out three times a week for 90 minutes, doing a combination of running, dancing and crunches. ‘I’m definitely softer, but I feel my body bouncing back,’ she says.

Here are some beautiful pictures of Beyonce from her Tumblr account.
