–Beyonce hasn’t given a sit down interview in three years, but she just made it worth the wait. In her new Elle cover story, she discusses self-care, stands up for feminism (“I don’t understand the negative connotation of the word, or why it should exclude the opposite sex”), addresses the backlash to her “Formation” video (“If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me”), and talks about being a business woman (“Power is making things happen w/out asking for permission.”) It all feels very controlled and rehearsed (maybe even emailed?), but that’s all part of why we love her.
