Singer Beyonce who graces the cover of Elle’s January issue has reflected on how her miscarriages, among other experiences, ultimately changed her priorities as an artist.
Through her social media via direct messages and emails to her fans, Beyonce opened up about one of the most difficult lessons she learned after suffering several miscarriages.
"I began to search for deeper meaning when life began to teach me lessons I didn’t know I needed. Success looks different to me now," the singer explained in the 'Ask me anything' interview. "I learned that all pain and loss is, in fact, a gift. Having miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to someone else."
The 'Formation' singer who married music, fashion and business mogul Jay-Z, also said she’s sick and tired of people trying to figure out what’s going on inside her womb.
She also shared a message for the folks who are always saying she’s pregnant: "Get off my ovaries!"
This isn’t the first time Beyonce has gotten candid about her pregnancy troubles. She first opened up about her miscarriages in her 2013 documentary 'Life is But a Dream' by HBO. Beyonce and husband Jay-Z who also referred her miscarriage in his track 'Glory' which released in 2012 – welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012. She gave birth to twins Rumi and Sir in five years later in June 2017.
