Beyoncé Knowles opened up like we have never seen before during her chat with Oprah Winfrey on the new “Next Chapter” episode that premiered via OWN. If you missed it, watch it here!
Excerpts from her interview with O:
On splitting with her father
One of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Someone you love. Someone that’s given you life. Someone that’s done such a fantastic job. It’s a part of life and a part of growth. And I had to tell myself, at some point you have to be the adult your father has raised you to be and prepared you to be.
On sharing her miscarriage with the world
There’s so many couples that go through that and it’s one of the hardest things I’ve been through. It’s one of the reasons I didn’t tell people I was pregnant the second time around. You just don’t know.
On discussing how to handle the publicity around her daughter
It’s so much to think about, but in the end it just wasn’t right to [sell images] and things like that. Someone would end up hounding and it’s just not safe. So we put the pictures out there.
On Blue Ivy’s personality
She is hilarious. And she is fire. I didn’t think she would be like that but Lord am I going to have a time! She loves books. She loves the books that you bought her…she now has the Blue Ivy Book Club.
On Jay-Z as a dad
Incredible. He’s a different human being. And it’s really beautiful to see a young man, such a great father. I’m so lucky.
