Beyoncé Plans to Launch Record Label, Create Boy Band

Beyoncé has a full-time job ahead of her with motherhood, but she’s ready to pursue her next professional endeavor. The mom-to-be sat down with The Associated Press during the launch of her Pulse fragrance in New York, fielding the unavoidable pregnancy questions (she can’t tolerate the smell of onions), praising her sister Solange and mother Tina (“I could cry every time I think about [Tina] because she is such an incredible woman”), and revealing her next plan of attack.

“I am starting my company, my label. I want to create a boy band,” B told the AP. “I want to continue to produce and do documentaries and music videos. I eventually want to start directing for other artists. Once I know that I have my stuff together and I trust that, I can do it for other artists.”

The “Run the World (Girls)” singer wants to develop careers for other artists like her male counterparts. “I see so many male artists building these empires and passing their knowledge on to other artists and development. I see myself doing the same thing and hopefully other younger artists when they grow up and they have been around for 15, 20 years, they can do the same thing.”
