Beyonce Talks Keeping Her Album A Secret, Inspirations + More At New York Screening

Beyonce Talks Keeping album A Secret, it's Message And More!Beyonce is on top of the world right now! Almost a week ago Bey surprised the world when she dropped a visual-album along with 17 videos overnight. The album has sold more than a million copies and will spend it’s first week atop the Billboard Top 200. In celebration of her new self-titled album, the pop-star hosted a screening of her 17 new music videos at the New York’s School of Visual Arts. After watching the 17 videos along side fans, Beyonce answered a few questions submitted by more fans on Instagram via hashtag, #AskBey. Beyonce executes the questions informing fans of inspirations and experiences in relation to the production and response to the album, ” I’m proud of myself as a woman … the biggest message is owning your imperfections and all the things that make you interesting, because I refuse to allow someone to put me in anyone’s box”, she explained when asked about the album’s message.

Beyonce at her New York ScreeningThis is Beyonce’s first album under her own management; she recently part ways with her father’s management team that produced 4, “My father taught me so, so much. When I decided to manage myself, it was important to me not to sign to some big company. I wanted to follow in Madonna’s footsteps and be a powerhouse. When you get to this level, you don’t have to share your money or your success… And we did it. And it’s my company”. Beyonce also explained how being a mom inspired her album, “It’s interesting how motherhood changes you and it changes your perspective on life. I took all the things that I wanted to change about myself and all the things I wanted to share, and I put it into this record”.

Another point I found interesting when Beyonce was asked about any insecurities on keeping the album a secret, “I just got off the stage, I had a glass of wine and my cousin Angie was like, ‘Are you alright?’ because I was talking to myself and I was terrified. I was so scared. I had already gone through all the horrible ways it could go in my mind… I saw it live on iTunes and I waited for the first comment. Then I woke up the next morning and… [breaks into dance].” Beyonce has nothing to worry about! Her album will be spending it’s second week at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 this upcoming week!
