Listen up, people! Beyoncé has something to say.
To commemorate the one-year anniversary of her self-titled visual album, the "7/11" singer released an eleven-and-a-half minute short film, titled Yours and Mine, Friday morning. Set to a montage of music video clips, Jay Z's wife shared her thoughts on fame, body image, feminism, marriage and much more.
"I sometimes wish I could be anonymous walking down the street like everyone else. Before I was famous I was the girl on the hill with a guitar. I was the girl that just wanted a beautiful view of the beach. Now that I'm famous it's really, really difficult to do very simple things," says the former Destiny's Child singer, who is the most Grammy Award-nominated woman in history. "I think it's the hardest thing to give up, but my mother always taught me to be strong and to never be a victim, never make excuses, never expect anyone else to provide me things that I know I can provide for myself. I have dreams and I feel like I have a power to actually make those dreams become a reality. When you're famous, no one looks at you as a human anymore. You become property of the public. There's nothing real about it."
