Superstar singer, actor, performer and producer, Beyonce Knowles Carter, has confessed to feeling ‘pressure’ as she juggles her career with being a wife and mother.
She revealed she is struggling with insomnia after being on the road for so many years doing tours admitting it isn’t easy coping with the ‘pressure’ of being a globally famous superstar, businesswoman and mum-of-three.
Asked by Harper’s Bazaar how she looks after herself amid her incredibly hectic lifestyle, the 39-year-old said:
‘I think like many women, I have felt the pressure of being the backbone of my family and my company and didn’t realize how much that takes a toll on my mental and physical well-being.
‘I have not always made myself a priority. I’ve personally struggled with insomnia from touring for more than half of my life.’
Turning to her physical health she continued: ‘Years of wear and tear on my muscles from dancing in heels.
‘The stress on my hair and skin, from sprays and dyes to the heat of a curling iron and wearing heavy makeup while sweating on stage.
‘I’ve picked up many secrets and techniques over the years to look my best for every show. But I know that to give the best of me, I have to take care of myself and listen to my body.’
Beyonce who has been working on new music for over a year, says she’s be 40 years soon and plans to keep on doing whatever she wants as she has paid her dues.
‘I have paid my dues and followed every rule for decades, so now I can break the rules that need to be broken,’ Beyonce declared.
‘My wish for the future is to continue to do everything everyone thinks I can’t do.’
