Pulse already brought you reports that Beyonce launched her activewear line and is on the cover of both Elle UK and USA Magazine’s May issue. Now, she’s going to be on the cover in 25 countries.
In the May issue of Elle Magazine, the mother of one chats about her new activewear line, Ivy Park, the pressures of being perfect, running her own company and a lot more. Check out what she had to say below:
In talking about Ivy Park: “It’s really the essence: to celebrate every woman and the body she’s in while always striving to be better. I called it Ivy Park because a park is our commonality. We can all go there; we’re all welcomed. It’s anywhere we create for ourselves. For me, it’s the place that my drive comes from. I think we all have that place we go to when we need to fight through something, set our goals and accomplish them.”
On always having to be perfect: “It’s really about changing the conversation. It’s not about perfection. It’s about purpose. We have to care about our bodies and what we put in them. Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health—take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish. The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself.”
On being a boss lady: “It’s exciting, but having the power to make every final decision and being accountable for them is definitely a burden and a blessing. To me, power is making things happen without asking for permission. It’s affecting the way people perceive themselves and the world around them. It’s making people stand up with pride.”
