Beyonce revealed in a rare interview how she raised her three kids, Blue Ivy Carter and twins, Rumi and Sir Carter. Although the singer is known to keep her personal life out of the public eye, she revealed how she has evolved as a parent.
The singer was asked with this year bringing in the Black Lives Matter movement and the coronavirus pandemic, how she has evolved as a parent. She responded that she has become a better listener. The mother of three revealed that Blue is very smart and aware that there is a shift.
However, despite this, she said it is her job as a parent to do her best to keep her world as positive and safe as she can for the 8-year-old. The Lion King actress shared, “My best advice is to love them harder than ever. I let my daughter know that she is never too young to contribute to changing the world.”
Beyonce added that she never underestimates her thoughts or feelings and checks in with her to understand how things are affecting her. The Ivy Park founder shared how she and Blue celebrate each other’s wins. This, according to her, motivates the mother to be a role model for her children.
The musician recalled a rather special moment that she shared with her daughter. She shared how Blue saw some of the reactions to the ‘Brown Skin Girl’ video and some of the videos from the philanthropic work she has done this year.
Beyonce revealed, “When I tell her I’m proud of her, she tells me that she’s proud of me and that I’m doing a good job. It’s teeeeeew much sweetness. She melts my heart. I believe the best way to teach them is to be the example.”
Beyonce Opens Up About Her Inspiration For Ivy Park
The Lion King alum further mentioned how fashion has been her and her family’s place of escape. She shared that she and her kids came up with ‘Fashion Fridays’ where every Friday they will dress up in her clothes or make clothes together. They would also take each other’s pictures, according to the singer.
Beyonce said, “It became a ritual for us and an opportunity to laugh off this crazy year together.” The mother also revealed how her latest Ivy Park collection was inspired by this “ritual”.
The singer shared, “It consciously uses bright, bold colors to remind us to smile. I used a lot of neon yellow and coral mixed with baby blue and earth tones that felt soothing”. She further added that it brought her joy and made her smile in the midst of a tough time for all of us.
The Ivy Park founder also dished out on a little something we did not know she had. She said, “I know it’s random, but I have two beehives. Real ones. I’ve had them at my house for a while now. I have around 80,000 bees and we make hundreds of jars of honey a year. I started the beehives because my daughters, Blue and Rumi, both have terrible allergies, and honey has countless healing properties.”
