Beyoncé covers the September issue of CR Fashion Book, in which she shares original prose “remixed” by award-winning poet and novelist Forrest Gander.
For the the fifth edition of Carine Roitfeld’s magazine, the singer reflects on her daughter Blue Ivy in the article titled “Bey of Light.”
It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse. There’s someone, we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose.
I feel a deep bond with young children — all those photos in my dressing room — especially those who’ve been stricken.
Children I’ve met across the years — they uplift me like pieces of moon and guide me, whispering in my ear.
Beyoncé ends the piece by noting that she is not striving for perfection, saying:
Utopias they don’t much interest me. I always mess things up a bit. It’s chaos, in part, that helps us see. But for my daughter I dream a day when no one roots for others to fail, when we all mean what we say.
