In less than a month, on September 4, Beyoncé will turn 40. The round date does not scare the artist at all. On the contrary, she plans to drastically change her life, which she spoke about in an interview with THR.

The singer admitted that over 30 years of her creative career, she had to make a lot of efforts to reach heights despite the color of her skin.

“I was often the only black girl, and that’s when I began to realize that I needed to work twice as hard to achieve worldwide fame,” says the star.

Now the name of Beyoncé is known all over the world. The singer has released hundreds of hits, starred for fashion magazines, and is involved in charity work. According to the star herself, she is at her peak, but it’s time to stop competing with herself.

“I want to discover new qualities in myself that I haven’t had time for so far. Enjoy my husband [Jay-Z – Approx. ed.] and my children. I want to travel and relax. I want to celebrate the next decade, rejoice, love and be loved, ”the singer admitted.

Probably, creativity will no longer come first for Beyoncé. In this case, there will be fewer songs and performances, but the singer will still continue to create. For the past year and a half she has been working on a new album, which will soon be released.
