Beyoncé On 'Crazy' Blue Ivy Labour: "We Were Talking"
Star also talks new LP & is set to appear on Oprah's Next Chapter...
Jay-Z as she was giving birth last January.
Bey explained: "I felt very maternal around eight months, and I thought I couldn't become any more until I saw the baby. But it happened during my labour because I had a very strong connection with my child."I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn't think about my own pain. We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication... It was the best day of my life."
TheDestiny's Child star also once again rubbished rumours that she faked her pregnancy, proposing the question: "Who even thinks that? Like, who would make that up... You can't take it too seriously."
As well as discussing daughter Blue Ivy and motherhood, Bey also opened up about her fifth studio album, describing it as "sensual" and "empowering."
Speaking of the LP - which she is set to release later this year for her Mrs Carter Show world tour - the 31-year old said: "Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body.
"I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame."
Joking that her studio "kind of feels right now like A Beautiful Mind" since it is full of "vision boards" giving her inspiration for her music, she added: "There's so much stuff up there.
