“It was great to be a wife and travel with [my husband Jay-Z]. I had to turn down great things. I did it for my sanity, my life, my relationships, my nephew, my husband, my sister and my friendships. I deserved to give myself time to focus on things besides performing, filming and recording.” she told InStyle.
The time off definitely worked wonders, and Beyonce looks hotter than ever and completely stress-free, rocking a star-patterned Dolce & Gabbana dress for the cover.
One of her secret favorite stress relievers? Jersey Shore!
“In my free time, I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV. I have to confess that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore.”
The multi-talented musician will be celebrating her 30th birthday on Sept. 4, and is considering some possible additions to her family, which currently only consists of husband Jay-Z, 41, and herself. “Now I’m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.”
