Beyonce recently credited feminism for helping her start her career and get going in the right direction. Married to rapper Jay-Z, Beyonce says her early days with Destiny's Child helped develop her relationships with other women.
"I think I am a feminist, in a way. It's not something I consciously decided I was going to be; perhaps it's because I grew up in a singing group with other women, and that was so helpful to me," she told the magazine. "It kept me out of so much trouble and out of bad relationships. My friendships with my girls are just so much a part of me that there are things I am never going to do that would upset that bond. I never want to betray that friendship, because I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women."
