Beyonce has revealed the reason for featuring Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie, in one of her songs in her new album.

She explained to UK Mirror how she got to know about Chimamanda and why she featured her. She also talked about her husband, daughter, fans, and how she is striving for growth, love, happiness and fun.

“I was going through videos on feminity on Youtube, when I came across this video of this incredible Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie.”

“Everything she exactly how I feel. My message in this album was finding the beauty in imperfection,” Beyonce stated.

“I had this image of this trophy and me accepting these awards and kind of training myself to be a champion and at the end of the day when you go through all of these things, is it worth it? I mean, you get this trophy and you’re like, ‘I basically starved. I have neglected all the people that I love. I’ve conformed to what everybody else thinks I should be and I have this trophy. What does that mean?’ “

“The trophy represents all of the sacrifices I made as a kid; all the time I lost being on the road in the studios as a child and I just want to throw that s**t up!”

She also spoke about her daughter, Blue Ivy and hubby Jay-Z, and what she’s up to lately.

“I have a lot of awards and I have a lot of these things that are amazing and I worked my ass off. I worked harder than probably everybody I know to get those things, but nothing feels like my child singing ‘mummy’.”

On love, happiness and fun, she said:

“No, nothing feels like when I look my husband in the eyes. Nothing feels like when I’m respected when I get on the stage and I see I’m changing peoples lives. Those are the things that matter and at this point in my life that’s what I’m striving for – growth, love, happiness, fun.”

Her advice to her fans: “Enjoy your life – it’s short. That’s the message!”
