Beyonce Knowles Talks Pregnancy Weight, Love of Performing with Oprah
She’s one of the hottest performers in the world, but Beyoncé Knowles had trouble with losing her pregnancy pounds just like everyone else.
During her interview with Oprah Winfrey, the “Crazy in Love” songstress confessed that she put on more weight than she’d hoped while carrying daughter Blue Ivy.
Beyonce explained, "I did a show three months after giving birth, which was crazy. I had clearly never given birth, and I didn't know that I would gain 60 pounds—57 pounds."
And though it was a struggle, Knowles got back to her playing weight in preparation for her live gigs. "I feel so fortunate to do my job. I love my job. I love singing. I love the way it feels."
As for her husband Jay-Z, Bey gushed, "I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man. He just gives me such a foundation."
Beyonce’s interview for “Oprah’s Next Chapter” airs this weekend!
