Before her interview with the mag, the 31-year-old singer posed with celebrity photographer Patrick Demarchelier. After the fun photo shoot, B opened up about everything from her upcoming HBO documentary to having more children.
When commenting on her tell-all film, Beyoncé said, "My story has never been told - no one really knows who I am."
She added,"This movie has healed me in so many ways. It makes me want to cry."
Not only does the documentary delve into her successful career, but it also includes her recent struggles. Opening up about the 2011 separation with her long time manager and father, Mathew Knowles, the "Single Ladies" singer admits, "My father taught me so much about being a businesswoman. And I'm understanding him a lot now... A lot of the crazy things he did were necessary."
Meanwhile, Miss Knowles explained that her daughter's needs are greater than her own. "At some point it’s very important to me that my daughter is able to experience life and run through the sprinklers and have slumber parties and trust and live and do all the things that any child should be able to do," she declares.
While continuing to chat about baby Blue Ivy, Beyoncé 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."
In regards to expanding her family with hubby Jay-Z, the Grammy-winner explained, "When I was younger, there were moments where I said, ‘I’m not going to have children.' And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don’t know when."
