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.”
