Beyoncé Talks Cuba Trip Controversy, Expanding Her Family, & Protecting Blue Ivy

Amy Robach and Beyoncé

Beyoncé is touring the world, but she took time out to sit down with “Good Morning America” on Monday. ABC News’ Amy Robach caught up with the 31-year-old singer in London during a stop on “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.”

Queen B spoke about her animated role as Queen Tara in Fox’s upcoming fantasy-adventure Epic, being a “protective” mother to Blue Ivy, and having more children. She also shared her “shocking” reaction to the controversy surrounding her recent trip to Cuba.

Read highlights and watch her interview below.

On the Cuba trip controversy: “You know, it was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really, it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country, and it was actually quite shocking.”

On her Epic role: “It has so much depth. You know, it’s so emotional. And I literally, I was crying when I—when I did the voiceover. And it was the first thing I did after giving birth. And there’s a scene where I pick the pod. And literally there were…tears falling.”

On staying grounded: “You know, at the end of the day you’re the same exact person. I still like the simple things. Like, I have on my press-on nails right now. I have on my store-bought press-on nails. But my color, my paint is professionally done.”

On expanding her family: “I would like more children. I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being big sister.”

On her goals and dreams: “I just want happiness and I want great friends and great family.”

On being a mother to Blue Ivy: “And I am very protective. I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life. In the back of my mind, she’s my priority. And life is completely different now. I feel really, really just lucky that I can still do what I love, and now have a way bigger meaning. And that’s to be her mother.”

    Isn’t Beyonce already pregnant with her second child now? Look at her recent tour photos in London and you can see her belly. I think thats why she isn’t releasing any new music.

    @wonderland19, that’s messy as hell then. She used her fans by having a worldwide tour without putting out a new album cuz shes most likely gonna need it for all the lawsuits to come for stealing music credits .

    @Oh, Well its not surprising. She isn’t known for caring that much for her fans. Apart from giving the odd free ticket this era, she isn’t really here for them.

    Why no questions about playing a concert for Libyan terrorists and why not actually ask about her ridiculous tour rider after the bs stay grounded nonsense q and a. She is a hypocrite and deserves to have her Pepsi contract cancelled more than lil wayne.

    Sorry wayne used words while B actually performed for human rights violators. Lets be real who is a worse person

    So wait, when the children go see the movie are they supposed to know they’re listening to the voice of the woman that said “Bow down bitches!” ???

  15. Oh

    Beyoncé is really messy for this. I heard shes pegnant well why would she even fucking get pregnant again and then go on a BIG ASS worldwide TOUR with NO new music. I don’t want another ERA of 4 again. That’s what happened last time she got pregnant and her album was a flop. Can she please wait until this tour is over and until she puts out this album and promote I thought she wouldn’t be having any more kids until like the end of 2014. This year should’ve been her big comeback but DAMN this year is nearly halfway over.

    Why do folks keep insisting the “4″ was a flop when it has sold over 3 million copies worldwide and double platinum in the US. She won a Grammy for “Love On Top” and still didn’t have any mainstream # 1′s. Oh and the album was #1 for two consecutive weeks!! Flop not!!! #bowdown bitches….I thought she already told you heaux that!@!!

    B has worked since she was 10 years old to get where she is, has more albums than most artists will ever publish. Beautiful,talented, super-rich, and now supporting a foundation to promote girls and women around the world. She could never work again and still buy and sell the rest of hip hop.
    Oh, except for her super-rich, talented husband who is now going on to sports management. She is telling everyone by the name of the tour what is happening. “Mrs. Carter” has a full time job, being wife to the CEO to major corps, running her design business and working at being a great mom at the same time. Her “Sasha Fierce” is taking a back seat. Don’t look for any new music for a couple of years. Bless her heart, she is a shy girl from Houston and that comes out in her interviews because she is cautious of what she says to the media.
