Beyoncé has opened up about her past miscarriage heartache in a rare interview. The Halo singer spoke about her personal struggles in an interview with Elle magazine.

The mum-of-three shared that she had suffered multiple miscarriages before welcoming her first child, Blue Ivy in 2012.

The singer told the publication, “I learned that all pain and loss is in fact a gift. Having miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to someone else.”

She continued to share how motherhood has shaped her as a person.

“Then I had Blue, and the quest for my purpose became so much deeper. I died and was reborn in my relationship, and the quest for self became even stronger.”

“It’s difficult for me to go backwards. Being ‘No. 1’ was no longer my priority. My true win is creating art and a legacy that will live far beyond me. That’s fulfilling,” she added.

The Love On Top singer said becoming a mum and growing up helped change the way she views herself.

“Children and maturity have taught me to value myself beyond my physical appearance and really understand that I am more than enough no matter what stage I’m at in life. Giving zero f—s is the most liberating place to be.”

Beyoncé is a mum to seven-year-old Blue and two-year-old twins Rumi and Sir.


Beyonce's devoted Bey Hive are absolutely CONVINCED that The Lion King star is pregnant with her fourth baby, saying that she's been 'dropping hints' all over Instagram.

The rumour mill was churning after the 37-year-old singer and actress posted a group of images to her followers, following a purple theme.

Queen Bey is currently on her holibops with Blue Ivy, twins Rumi and Sir and her rapper husband, Jay-Z.

The latest group of Instagram pictures has sent fans into a frenzy as the Destiny's Child star was posing with her arms crossed and a purple crocodile skin bag covering her stomach.

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that the post could be to hide a baby bump. One commented: “Anyone else see a bump or is it only me?”.

Another fan said: “Let me research the meanings of purple and the things it’s related to. This is a clue!”. The Bey Hive love a good puzzle, clearly.

Some fans quickly rubbished the claims, saying the mum-of-three's body could simply have changed;

"This woman had three whole babies, three y’all, and she is 37-years-old …You really think the only possible way she could have a belly pouch is by being pregnant?!". Fair point.

Beyonce was recently spotted wearing a bracelet she debuted while pregnant with her first child.

The Crazy in Love singer rocked the same Lorraine Schwartz cuff she wore on the night she revealed she was expecting daughter Blue Ivy in 2011, which has increased baby mania speculation.

In other Bey Hive news, reports have been swirling that Destiny's Child are reuniting to record new music and head on a 2020 tour.

If Beyonce is pregnant, this could throw those plans into disarray. Do we want a Carter Baby #4 or Destiny's Child on tour? It's like Sophie's Choice…

Beyoncé laments her weight gain after giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir in a new video titled 22 Days, proving she's just like us in so many ways.

The clip shows Queen Bey following a strict organic, vegan, non-GMO diet and working out endlessly to get back into shape in time for her ground-breaking Coachella tour last year.

The 37-year-old had just given birth to her baby twins at the beginning of the video, and it begins with the superstar singer stepping onto the weighing scales and saying; 

"Good morning, it’s 5am, and this is day one of rehearsals for Coachella."

The weighing scales show that her weight is 175lbs (roughly 79kg) and she proclaims; "Every woman’s nightmare. Long way to go."

Her 22 Days nutrition programme was set up by her friend and personal trainer, Marco Borges.

"I’m back on the stage after giving birth to twins. I was a woman that felt like my body was not mine," the Spirit singer admits in the candid clip. 

"Me getting the weight off was so much easier than getting my body back in shape and feeling comfortable."

The video also gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at Beyoncé in intense Coachell rehearsals, food-repping and working out ahead of her headline set, which became a Netflix film in a multi-million deal.

Queen Bey claims she has a "special bond" with daughter Blue Ivy, and has been honest with her followers about her post-pregnancy weight loss journey in the past.

In her Netflix documentary Homecoming, she shares:

"I’m limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol – and I’m hungry." The star has just released her Lion King album, The Gift.

The former Destiny's Child band-member admitted that she worried her body following Rumi and Sir's birth would affect her performance;

"There were days when I thought I would never be the same I’d never be the same physically, my strength and endurance would never be the same.

"And you know, a lot of the choreography is about feeling so it’s not as technical, it’s your own personality that brings it to life."

She continues: "And that’s hard when you don’t feel like yourself. I had to rebuild my body. It took me a while to feel confident to give my own personality."

 Queen Bey has unveiled the music video for Spirit, which features in Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King, and boy is it powerful.

The actress and singer lends her voice to the character of Nala in the movie, directed by Jon Favreau and featuring talents like Donald Glover, John Oliver, Seth Rogan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, JD McCrary and James Earl Jones.

Beyoncé told ABC News's Robin Roberts that the video's concept is “to show how God is the painter and natural beauty in nature needs no art direction."

She added; “It’s the beauty of colour, the beauty of melanin, the beauty of tradition.”

Clips from The Lion King are interspersed within the video, which sees the icon sitting in the desert wearing an array of colourful gowns.

Her seven-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, also makes a cameo in Spirit, looking every inch the image of her stunning mum.

Spirit is just one song off Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift album, which accompanies the film. Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell Williams also add their talents to The Gift.

Mood 4 Eva contains the vocal talents of hip-hop legend Jay-Z while Brown Skin Girl sees Blue Ivy add her voice.

Beyoncé described the soundtrack as a “love letter to Africa, adding: “And I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa, and not just use some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it."


A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

She continued; “I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.” 

Beyonce confirmed that drums will be used heavily on the work, as well as “incredible new sounds mixed with some of the producers from America”.

The Lion King: The Gift will be released on July 19, alongside the film landing in cinemas. Watch the awe-inspiring video for Spirit below, and try not to gasp at every outfit change like we did;

Beyonce's Instagram is an insight into her glamorous travel and family filled life. 

Scattered among her iconic and put-together outfit shots and pregnancy homages, are pictures of her gorgeous little girl Blue Ivy. 

Blue is often said to resemble her parents equally, but Beyonce has shared a side-by-side snap h herself at Blue's age, alongside a Paparazzi picture of Blue, which prove that she really is Bey's little doppelganger. 


A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

'Someone made this comparison of me at age 7 and Blue at age 7,' the singer posted. 

'My baby is growing up.'

The first snap shows Beyonce sporting her beautiful, natural hair and smiling an adorable gap-toothed smile (it looks like someone had just had a visit from the tooth fairy). 


A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Blue is currently 7 years old, as outlined in the post – which she turned on January 7th of this year. 

The post is completely different from Beyonce's usual style of social media posting – as only one image is used, and Beyonce generally likes to upload collages of a mix of pictures and videos. 

The fact that the photo has a caption is also rare. 



We all crave new Beyoncé music every day, because without her collection of life-altering tunes, where would we be? God knows.

Mysterious music was leaked online the other day on iTunes, totally unauthorised.

The musical goddess has been known to randomly drop albums, ever since 2016's iconic Lemonade release, but this seemed a little too random…fans quickly realised it was old music though:

The old recordings were released under the name Queen Carter, and iTunes somehow allowed it to be uploaded until fans pointed out the strange mistake.

The albums Back Up, Rewind and Have Your Way appeared on Apple Music and Spotify, and was comprised of demos, unreleased tracks and demo songs by Queen Bey, which were removed a few hours later.

Songs such as After All Is Said and Done, a duet with Marc Nelson from 1999, Hollywood with Jay-Z from his 2006 album Kingdom Come, and another song from Austin Powers called Hey Goldmember.

A Missy Elliot collaboration from the rapper's second album was also on the tracklist, as well as Keep Giving Your Love to Me from Bad Boys II, and Control, a stand-alone song.

Beyoncé has dropped her last three albums as surprises, her 2013 self-titled project, Lemonade, and Everything is Love by The Carters.

We'll take ANYTHING she graciously offers, but unreleased songs without her authorisation is damn wrong, let the Queen have control over her own music.

Grammy-nominated R&B singer SZA was also victim to this same mysterious hacking, with old music being uploaded to iTunes under the name Sister Solana (her real name is Solana Rowe).

SZA addressed the album of old demo tracks being released on streaming services on her Instagram, calling the project "random scratches from 2015" and claimed that the songs are "def not new new!"

It's all very mysterious behaviour altogether.

Apple Music and Spotify have yet to comment on the matter, but we'd bet that Beyoncé ain't happy about this at all.

Who is the culprit making drama for no apparent reason, though? Spill the lemonade tea.


If Beyoncé and Jay-Z's tumultuous marriage has been anything, it has most certainly been public.

Never has this been more apparent than through the new video for Jay-Z's song, 'Family Feud'.

Not only is the song partly about the up and downs of the couple's marriage (much like Beyoncé's Lemonade), but the video stars both the rapper's wife and their 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

The 34 second teaser from his latest album 4:44 is rife with religious iconography. 

The father-of-three raps in a confessional, Queen Bey stands tall behind a pulpit, and adorable Blue Ivy walks through a church with her father.

The rest of the video features a star-studded cast: Brie Larson, new mum Mindy Kaling, Rosario Dawson, Constance Wu, and Rashida Jones, to name a few.

The myriad of talented women play the Founding Mothers of the United States, who revise the Constitution together.

While the video focuses heavily on Jay-Z's relationships (there is, of course, a reference to 'Becky'), the track is also an exploration of the black entertainment community.

The line 'Nobody wins when the family feuds' can most certainly apply to both his home life and the conflicts found within hip-hop culture. 

The full video is available on Tidal.



Beyoncé and Jay-Z clearly know the value in building a brand early, as Blue Ivy has already been tipped to create her own cosmetics line.

While we're all still hung up on the surprise announcement of Queen B's twins, it's Blue Ivy who is getting busy upping her business game. 

According to TMZ, Blue Ivy is en route to have her name trademarked for use in the goods and services industry. 


A photo posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Beyonce has put in a request to the United States Patent and Trademark Office to copyright the term Blue Ivy Carter for future business endeavours.

The name could be used for everything from fragrances to hair care to entertainment, music performances and films.

So potentially, there could be a Blue Ivy makeup line in the works. Kylie Jener, look out.

This isn't the first time the Carter-Knowles power couple have attempted to trademark their little ones name.

Back in 2012, their attempt to trademark the name was rejected as someone had already patented the term.

Hopefully they get the deal the second time around,as a Blue Ivy may want to start building her empire before the twins arrive.



We can't get enough of sassy Blue Ivy and so we were delighted when her superstar mum Beyonce decided to post a rare snap of the child to her Instagram. 

And it seems Blue is a total girly girl through and through as they snap showed her playing around in her Mum's make-up bag. 

The 4-year-old was snapped donning pretty crystals across her forehead, pink lippie and some rather questionable eyeliner (though an admirable attempt for a first try Blue!)

Continue doing you, Blue, is our advice. 

Two hours earlier, Bey posted a snap of herself also working some intense make-up including a gorgeous gold lip a the pair were backstage at a music video shoot, according to the Daily Mail. 

The star also shared snaps from her recent video with Coldplay for the song Hymn for the Weekend. 


The queen of surprise has graced us all with a new song and a brand new video.

Beyonce released the track and accompanying vid just a day before she's set to preform alongside Coldplay at the Superbowl.

What's more, Blue Ivy makes her music video debut and looks SO cute and sassy we can't even deal.

Queen Bey made her song, Formation and video free to stream on Tidal, so watch it NOW.

One thing's for sure though, she certainly knows how to get people talking.



How are we supposed to function in life knowing that there are kids a quarter of our age that dress ten times better than us? 

Though it does help that these kids have famous parents to fund and style their fashion furore, we are struggling to come to terms with this miserable truth. 

When North West stepped out this week in a sleeveless roll neck jumper, black ripped jeans, a pair of Converse and a cute purse slung expertly on her elbow, we almost had a bit of a wardrobe meltdown. 

After a minor nervous breakdown there was only one thing to do. Chart the famous little ones who are officially way better dressed than us, of course. 

1) Suri Cruise

Suri seems to have a pair of ballet pumps for all occasions and a serious amount of perfect girly dresses and skirts.

Oh and don't forget the coats to DIE for. 

2) The Beckham kids

There is simply no way of choosing the best dressed Beckham kid because they all look fabulous 100% of the time. We do have a soft spot for Romeo and his stellar trench coat collection though.

We also have a lot of time for poor aul Harper who has to contend with a serious amount of testosterone and still looks fabulous. 

3) Prince George 

Though not everyone might be a fan of George's royalty -appropriate attire, we think he pulls off preppy to perfection. 

And those cheeks! 

4) Blue Ivy Carter

When your mam happens to be Queen Bey, there is zero chance of you ever looking anything less than perfect.

We loves Blue's penchant for leather jackets over girly dresses. Pint-sized perfection. 

5) Landon and Alabama Barker 

With Blink 182's Travis Barket as their dad, these two came out of the womb looking like rock stars. Alabama, 9, was sporting pink hair before it was a thing and Landon is approximately 150% cooler than we will ever be. 

6) The Jolie- Pitt kids

We all know that the Jolie-Pitt kids can dress whatever way they like. Maybe that is why they always look awesome. 

We particularly enjoy Shiloh and Zahara who are both always killing it. 

7) Kingston, Apollo and Zuma Rossdale 

Gwne Stefani's sons have surfer dude style down to a T, and they even make casts look cool.

8) Mason Disick 

Last but not least, it's our fave little man and perhaps our favourite of the Kardashian offspring, Mason. 

How does he always look so dapper? 


Well, we don't know if this has ever been done before, but we're sure Blue Ivy is used to the recording studio since her mother is Queen Bey, right?! 

Chris Martin has a very special guest on his new album, which will be released on December 4. Three-year-old Blue Ivy is collaborating with Coldplay on their song, A Head Full Of Dreams. How a three-year-old can collaborate, we don't know, but baby Blue isn't the only unexpected guest to sing on the new track. 

Chris has also asked Gwyneth Paltrow, his ex-wife, to sing alongside Blue. What a combination, huh?!

The band have already revealed that artists such as Noel Gallagher, Beyoncé and Tove Lo are featuring in the new album, but we just didn't expect Gwyneth and Blue.

“Everyone who got asked to sing on our album has an important part in our lives,” Chris explained to The Wall Street Journal.

“I don’t want to get too hippie, but what I’m trying to learn in my life is the value of every human. Inclusiveness is the key thing.” 

OK, Chris, whatever you say!
