Beyonce Discusses Marriage at it's Best, The Hard Work and Sacrifice with Harper's Bazaar!

Beyonce Discusses Marriage at it's Best, The Hard Work and Sacrifice with Harper's Bazaar!

Beyonce is well known for her chart topping hits, setting records in the music industry, her dance moves, building a singing and fashion empire and being the other-half of a celebrity super couple with husband Jay-Z. However, when it comes to her personal life, Beyonce has been very private especially to the media.

In the November 2011 issue of Harper's Bazaar Beyonce gives a rather candid and revealing interview, she not only discusses her pregnancy, but also her marriage; the hard work, the sacrifice and marriage at its best. 

Read on to see more photos and excerpts from her interview, plus watch her behind-the-scenes video from the photo-shoot.

On revealing her pregnancy at the 2011 MTV VMA's
"I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself,"... "I was extremely nervous. It was the toughest red carpet I ever did. "I didn't want a crazy picture or gossip story to break the news," she continues, "so I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything."

On becoming a woman and being ready for motherhood
"It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother," she says. "Now God has blessed us with the ultimate."

On her relationship with and respect for her husband Jay-Z
"We have been together since I was 20 years old," she says. "We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married. I admire his ability to inspire others. To me, Jay represents the American dream. Jay's music has helped define our generation. All that he has overcome and worked to achieve gives millions hope that they can become whatever they want to be. I respect him so much; he is a great man and a great artist."

On the best things about Marriage, the hard work and sacrifice
"We focused three years on our marriage and found that it brought us an even stronger bond and connection. But like anything great and successful in your life, marriage takes hard work and sacrifice. It has to be something both you and your husband deeply want. The best thing about marriage is the amount of growth you have because you can no longer hide from your fears and insecurities. There's someone right there calling you out on your flaws and building you up when you need the support. If you are with the right person, it brings out the best version of you."
