Beyoncé Talks Motherhood, Changing Diapers, & Nursery Rhymes on ‘Anderson Live’

Beyoncé helped Anderson Cooper kick off the new season of his talk show “Anderson Live” on Monday. During a sit-down interview at the United Nations General Assembly Hall last month, a beaming B discussed the joys of raising her 8-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.

“It just gives you purpose and all of the things my self-esteem was associated with, it’s all completely different,” said the 31-year-old singer. “I realized why I was born and more than anything, all of the things I want to pass on to my child. The best way of doing that is not by preaching or telling her, but showing her by example, which is one of the reasons I’m here.”

The superstar mother sings nursery rhymes to Blue. “I make up a lot of crazy, corny songs,” laughed B, who refused to perform any of them on-camera.

When it comes to changing diapers, she and Jay-Z don’t argue. “He’s very good,” she said. “I love changing diapers. I love every moment of it. It’s so beautiful.”
