Beyoncé and Oprah

Prior to the premiere of her HBO documentary Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream, Beyoncé sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a special episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” During their one-hour conversation, which took place in New York, the 31-year-old singer opened up about her Super Bowl performance (“I’ve never worked so hard for 12 minutes in my life”), severing ties with her father/manager Mathew Knowles, and her husband Jay-Z. She also reflected on her heartbreaking miscarriage and the happiest day of her life when her daughter Blue Ivy was born.

On Blue Ivy: “She is hilarious and she is fire. … Lord, I’m gonna have me a time,” said Bey about her now 13-month-old baby, who she describes as “very smart.” She loves to read and do flash cards.

On how fatherhood has changed Jay-Z: “He’s a different human being and it’s really beautiful to see a young man, such a great father, and I’m so lucky.”

On expanding their family: “Maybe after this next tour, I’ll maybe have another baby.”

On Sasha Fierce: “I don’t really need Sasha Fierce. I don’t really have the alter ego that’s so different. … I’m more connected to my art because I feel like Sasha Fierce lives within me all the time.”

On why she doesn’t tweet: “It’s so much fun to tell my stories through photography. That’s what I chose to do.”

On how she has changed: “I’m trying to take it easy. Do things when I’m inspired.”

The interview concluded with Oprah hailing Beyoncé as the “beloved mistress of the universe.” Watch O go one-on-one with B in the full episode below.
