Beyonce is bidding Virgo season goodbye in style, and in a typical Queen Bey way.
After turning 40 years on the 4th of September 2021, the Grammy winner (most Grammys of all time, by the way!) says that is the best she has felt in a long time.
She thanks fans for the birthday tributes they sent her way too, saying ‘I cried tears of joy and was covered in chilly bumps’ on receiving them. She also reckons it is the first year she has felt what it feels to live in the moment and realized why it is important to stop and smell the roses.
“I thought I knew that at 21 or 30…but I didn’t. The more mature I become, the more I understand and the deeper my joy grows. There’s a freedom and liberation knowng that I’ve made it to the other side of my sacrifice. I’m finally giving myself permission to enjoy the seeds I’ve worked so hard to plant my whole life,” she admits.
She also challenges the status quo that women should feel old for turning 40. “Whoever tried to condition women to feel that we are supposed to feel that we are supposed to feel old or unhappy when we turn 40 got it all the way F’d up!” she says.
Last week, Beyonce posted several pictures on vacation with her family, after missing the Met Gala. She recently revealed new music is definitely on the way on her Harper’s Bazaar cover story.
