De 10 uitspraken van Beyoncé die haar een echte Queen maken


‘Macht krijg je niet, die moet je grijpen.’ Deze vrouw, deze vrouw, deze vrouw. Superster. Moeder. Badass chick. Ik ga niet graag naar concerten, maar voor Beyoncé maak ik met liefde een uitzondering. Want als er iemand de koningin van de mooie levenslessen en inspirerende quotes is, dan is zij het. Gisteren blies ze 38 kaarsje uit. Tijd voor een mini-ode.

Dit is de reden waarom ik Beyoncé Knowles al 27 jaar bewonder. Haar mooiste uitspraken op een rij.

1. ‘I’m a workaholic and I don’t believe in ‘no.’ If I’m not sleeping, nobody’s sleeping.’

2. ‘If everything was perfect, you would never learn and you would never grow.’

3. ‘I don’t have to prove anything to anyone, I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world. I run my world.’

4. ‘Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.’

5. ‘Take all the rules away. How can we live if we don’t change?’

6. ‘We all have our imperfections. But I’m human and you know, it’s important to concentrate on other qualities besides outer beauty.’

7. ‘The reality is: sometimes you lose. And you’re never too good to lose. You’re never too big to lose. You’re never too smart to lose. It happens.’

8. ‘I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.’

9. ‘I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything?’

10. ‘I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.’

Happy B(ey)-Day, B. Who run the world? That’s you, girl.
