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.
