For a little more than a year now, [artist id=”1236911″]Beyoncé[/artist] and [artist id=”1269″]Jay-Z[/artist] have been Mr. and Mrs. Hova. And B, who is currently in Europe on tour, says the secret to their marital bliss is making time for each other.
“We try to sync our calendars,” Beyoncé told Marie Claire for the June issue. “I started working on my tour a year ago, just to make sure that I had time at home. But, you know, that’s part of it. Any other woman who has to go to work and pick up the kids and make dinner — that’s way harder than what I have to do. At least I can say, ’I’m taking two weeks off,’ and really take two weeks off.”
Beyoncé also admitted to wearing decals of Jay’s image on her nails to keep him close to her at all times. “It’s just a silly thing that makes me smile,” she told the magazine.
One of her latest hits, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” is all about being a happily, single woman, but Beyoncé said she’s just celebrating being single for all the girls who are unhappy in their relationships. “If you’ve been doing all you can and it’s not happening for you, go out and have you a good old time,” she said. “Put on your sexy dress and move on.”
With a successful music and film career, you might think Beyoncé would be the cover girl of confidence. But she said that, despite the girl power in her songs, she doesn’t always have it together in real life. “I know I’m stronger in the songs than I really am,” she said. “Sometimes I need to hear it myself. We all need to hear those empowering songs to remind us.”
