Beyonce Holds Screening For Visual Album; Discusses Secretly Dropping Album

Posted By on December 22, 2013

Beyonce is on fire. Plain and simple.

Queen B recently held an exclusive visual screening of her 17 music videos that go along with her album, Beyonce. During the showcase of the videos, she held a Q & A with fans. Below are some highlights, including Beyonce talking about the stresses of secretly dropping an album.

She first touched on the inspiration behind the album.

“More than the music, 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 anybody’s box.”

“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.”


Beyonce then went on to talk about what was going through her mind when she dropped the album last week.

 “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 oniTunes and I waited for the first comment. Then I woke up the next morning and… [breaks into dance].”
