Beyonce Finds Life To Be Hard Sometimes, Says She’s a Feminist

R&B diva Beyonce rarely speaks about her personal life but in a recent interview with UK’s You Magazine, the “Halo” singer admits she sometimes find it hard to balance everything in her life. “For me, balance is always really hard to find,” Beyonce, 29, tells You Magazine. “I love so many different things, and to have the discipline to turn certain things away and focus on one thing at a time so that I can give it 100 per cent is really hard.” Like most busy entertainers, Beyonce says her biggest challenge is time. “Probably the biggest challenge in my life is time – making sure I have time to be a wife, to be a singer, to be a songwriter, to be an actor and still have time for my clothing line and now for my perfume. I am like any other woman who has a child, who has a husband, who has a job. I think it’s the hardest thing about being a woman because we have so many responsibilities.” Beyonce, who is married to hip-hop superstar Jay-Z, says being a feminist helps her deal with her busy life, her female friends, and her relationship with men. “I think I am a feminist in a way. It’s not something I consciously decided I was going to be; perhaps it’s because I grew up in a singing group with other women, and that was so helpful to me,” says Beyonce. “It kept me out of so much trouble and out of bad relationships. My friendships with my girls are just so much a part of me that there are things I am never going to do that would upset that bond. I never want to betray that friendship because I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women.” The 29-year-old, who has received 16 Grammys during her 13-year career, added, “I think we learn a lot from our female friends – female friendship is very, very important.”
