Beyonce Balances Work, Family Like a Pro!

A new Netflix documentary gives us an intimate look at how Queen Bey juggles music, being a mom to Blue Ivy, Rumi & Sir Carter and wife to Jay-Z.

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is an American singer, songwriter, actress, record producer and dancer. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Beyoncé performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child. She rose to fame in the late 1990s as lead singer of the R&B girl-group Destiny’s Child.

Beyoncé enjoyed a privileged upbringing. “I grew up in a very nice house in Houston, went to private school all my life and I’ve never even been to the ‘hood’,” she recalls. “Not that there’s anything wrong with the ‘hood'”

Her nicknames are Ju Ju, Moth and Bee. Or maybe just call her Ma’am’.

In an exclusive excerpt from the essay collection QUEEN BEY: A Celebration of Power and Creativity of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, former Billboard deputy editor Isabel González Whitaker recalls her experiences interviewing the singer and the immediate warmth and kinship she felt during their interactions over the years in a piece entitled: “Finding La Reina in Queen Bey.”

Asked about her desire to eventually play a superhero in a movie, what superpower she’d like. Beyoncé said, “The power to disappear and just watch people. The older I get, I can see what people are going to do—it’s not like I’m psychic, I just have a good read on people. It’s really what I do. I walk into a room and I read people.” On that day, I very much appreciated her superpower.
