GMA: Beyonce Sits Down With Amy Robach
Beyonce. Just her name screams power and sophistication. In between sold-out stadium shows on her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Bey sat down with Amy Robach in London. She talked about being a mom, her new film EPIC and her recent trip to Cuba with her husband, Jay-Z.
Beyonce Goes To Cuba & Criticized By Political Officials
During a recent trip to Cuba, Beyonce and Jay-Z were under fire from public officials and the country. The U.S. government prohibits traveling to Cuba, except under the strictest conditions. The couple was just celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary.
“You know, it was such a beautiful trip,” Beyonce said. “I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really, it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country, and it was actually quite shocking.”
Beyonce is used to being scrutinized for her decisions, but this one makes you wonder. Why not just take a trip to another country in need that you aren’t barred from visiting?
Beyonce: Queen Tara In EPIC
EPIC comes to theaters on May 24. The film is about the battle between good and evil, but also touches on the subject of environmental preservation. Aziz Ansari, Amanda Seyfried, Steven Tyler, Josh Hutcherson and Colin Ferrell co-star in the film.
Beyonce plays the role of Queen Tara. She said it’s a beautiful role that had her crying as she did the voice overs. Beyonce was pregnant with her daughter, Blue Ivy, at the time. She knew that by the time the film came out Blue would understand it’s her mother’s voice.
“It has so much depth, you know, it’s so emotional,” Beyonce said. There is a scene where Queen Tara picks a pod for the forest and she imagined seeing her daughter for the first time.
Beyonce Wants To Make Blue Ivy a Big Sister
Beyonce told Amy Robach that her life is completely different now that she is a mom. She feels fortunate to get to do what she loves and be Blue Ivy’s mother. She said that she wants to have more children, in time. Beyonce loves being a big sister and wants her daughter to have that experience. She said that everything has a bigger meaning now. Her number one priority is to give her daughter a happy, healthy and safe life.
Despite all of her success and the crazy world tour, Beyonce tries to keep herself grounded.
“At the end of the day you’re the same exact person. I still like the simple things. I have on my press-on nails right now. I have on my store-bought press-on nails. But my color, my paint is professionally done.”
There are three things she wants from life: “happiness, great friends and great family.”
