Beyoncé is notorious for keeping her private life, private. But she recently gave us a deeper look for January's issue of Elle and is showing off her wit like never before. The in-depth interview has captured everyone's heart and is a true example of girl power.
So ahead, check out everything Queen Bey had to say about Snapchat, miscarriages, and the importance of surrounding yourself with strong women.
Best of all, the spread was shot by longtime friend Melina Matsoukas, who directed the famous "Formation" video and most recently the film Queen & Slim.
Beyoncé sang the praises of her friend: "Melina Matsoukas has inspired me to own and redefine what it means to be a director," she says. "As a woman, if you are too opinionated, too strong-willed, too anything, you are disregarded. I’ve seen this happen to Melina, but she handles it with respect and grace. Melina is a rarity; she has the sensibility to understand fashion, photography, storytelling, history, and culture and is able to seamlessly incorporate those components into her work. I have trusted Melina for over a decade and created some of my best work with her—from visuals for my music to tour content and now a fashion shoot. I was so excited to work with her on this shoot for ELLE, because working with Melina is effortless."
