Beyonce reveals why she featured Chimamanda Adichie in her new album

BeyonceMultiple award-winning American singer, Beyonce Knowles has explained why she featured Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adichie in her new album.

Explaining why she featured the Half of a Yellow Sun author in one of her songs entitled: Flawless, Beyonce in a chat with UK Mirror said, “I was going through videos on feminity on Youtube, when I came across this video of this incredible Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie.

“Everything she said is exactly how I feel. My message in this album was finding the beauty in imperfection,” Bey continues.

“I had this image of this trophy and me accepting these awards and kind of training myself to be a champion and at the end of the day when you go through all of these things, is it worth it? I mean, you get this trophy and you’re like, ‘I basically starved, I have neglected all the people that I love, I’ve conformed to what everybody else thinks I should be and I have this trophy. What does that mean?

“The trophy represents all of the sacrifices I made as a kid, all the time I lost being on the road in the studios as a child and I just want to throw that s**t up!”

The star also spoke about her daughter, Blue Ivy and hubby Jay Z, and what she’s up to lately.

Hear her, “I have a lot of awards and I have a lot of these things that are amazing and I worked my ass off, I worked harder than probably everybody I know to get those things, but nothing feels like my child singing ‘mummy’.”

The megastar mum-of-one then goes on to say she’s striving for for love, happiness and fun.

“No, nothing feels like when I look my husband in the eyes, nothing feels like when I’m respected, when I get on the stage and I see I’m changing peoples lives. Those are the things that matter and at this point in my life that’s what I’m striving for – growth, love, happiness, fun.”

She also gave one final piece of advice to her fans, “Enjoy your life – its short. That’s the message!” she added.
