“I just hope people don’t get sick of us. I’m sick of us and I’m in Destiny’s Child.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“Who I am on stage is very, very different to who I am in real life. But I don’t see that having a sexy image when you are on stage means that you don’t love God. No one knows what I’m really like from that. I like to walk around with bare feet and I don’t like to comb my hair. I’m always so glammed up and so diva on stage and that’s what they see. People don’t understand that… No one knows my personal relationship with God and it’s not up to me to prove that to anyone.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“So I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority. We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I’m a human being and I fall in love and sometimes I don’t have control of every situation.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“When I hear a great new record, especially when it’s by someone that I respect and admire, then a part of me is like, Why didn’t I think of that? Why didn’t I write that record? It makes you sick, but in a way it can be a great thing. It makes you want to go back to the lab and start writing again. Maybe it will inspire you to try a little harder.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“My daughter introduced me to myself.”

“I don’t feel like I have to please anyone. I feel free. I feel like I’m an adult. I’m grown. I can do what I want. I can say what I want. I can retire if I want. That’s why I’ve worked hard.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“In my videos, I always want to be a powerful woman. That’s my mission.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I like it when I’m on the stage, but honestly, I would be very happy if I could cut it off, just enjoy my life when I wasn’t performing.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“There’s plenty of days when I’m like ‘Oh God, why?’ But that’s just life. It’s every job, not just mine. Every moment is not perfect. But it’s definitely more good times than bad. You can’t even compare. And when I’m on stage it feels incredible.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I’m over being a pop star. I don’t wanna be a hot girl. I wanna be iconic. And I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot. I feel like I’m highly respected, which is more important than any award or any amount of records. And I feel like there comes a point when being a pop star is not enough.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I always have breakfast, say, scrambled egg whites, a vegetable smoothie, or whole-grain cereal with low-fat milk. For lunch and dinner, I eat a lot of fish and vegetables. And throughout the day, I try to stay hydrated.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I went to a high school for the performing arts and I lived and breathed music. It kept me focused; it kept me sane.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“Destiny’s Child will always be No.1 on my list.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I don’t flaunt my money. I like to stay at nice hotels but I’m not a flashy chick. I haven’t got much jewellery or anything.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I’ve had the same car for five years – it’s a convertible Jag which I bought with my own money. It’s very Austin Powers.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“I’m a good person and I don’t think I’ll be left on my own. I don’t know when I’ll meet a man – I think I’m rushing it. But I am tired of working and not having someone.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“It was great for that to be my first movie with such a wonderful cast, and such a huge movie. And now I get to do The Fighting Temptations, which is coming out soon-it wasn’t much of a character, it was more of a real person, so I got to show more of my acting range.”

 

Beyonce Knowles

“Have your own life before you become somebody’s wife.”
