Beyonce is on the cover of the much awaited issue of GQ Magazine, and she talks about her busy year celebrating the birth of her first daughter, prepping for her fifth solo album, and preparing for the half-time show at the Super Bowl.
Beyonce talks about getting to this point of her career in the interview, saying, “I worked so hard during my childhood to meet this goal: By the time I was 30 years old, I could do what I want. I've reached that. I feel very fortunate to be in that position. But I've sacrificed a lot of things, and I've worked harder than probably anyone I know, at least in the music industry. So I just have to remind myself that I deserve it."
She adds that she’s approaching her Super Bowl performance like an athlete does, saying, “You know how they sit down and watch whoever they're going to play and study themselves? That's how I treat this. I watch my performances, and I wish I could just enjoy them, but I see the light that was late. I see, 'Oh God, that hair did not work.' Or 'I should never do that again.' I try to perfect myself. I want to grow, and I'm always eager for new information."
Finally, Beyonce talks about her career and adds that she’s aware of the influence that her name and brand have, saying, “I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."
