Beyonce who turns 27 today is set to perform at Fashion Rocks this Friday and I’m sure it will be a great performance. The singer recently sat down with Marie Claire Uk to discuss, her alter ego Sasha, the song Irreplaceable, being an icon, and politics. Here is what she had to say.
Beyonce on why she uses her alter ego ‘Sasha’: “Things I do when I am performing I would never do ‘normally.’ I always wish I could feel the way I do on stage when I’m doing a movie because I have out of body experiences…I’m so fearless.”
Beyonce on who her song ‘Irreplaceable’ is about: “The obvious person is not the person at all.”
Beyonce on being a pop star: “There is a time limit on being a pop star yes, being a legend, an icon, absolutely not. I’m over being a popstar, I don’t wana be a hot girl — I wana be iconic. And I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot. I feel like I’m highly respected, which is more important than any award or any amount of records. And I feel like there comes a point when being a pop star is not enough.”
Beyonce on being a role model: “I think I’m opening doors for more black women, just like Halle Berry and Diana Ross opened doors for me.”
Beyonce on Barack Obama: “I’m really proud, I think we’re making a bit of progress, it’s an exciting time. We all feel part of our country now.”
