Beyonce: babies will have to wait until I “relax”


Here’s the thing – I don’t really hate Beyonce. I know that’s unfashionable, I know I’m going against the grain, but I don’t think she’s terrible. I might own a Beyonce CD somewhere. True, I probably bought it while drunk, but I’m sure I’ve listened to it once. When I hear her on the radio, I usually stop and listen. Now, I don’t love her either. She comes across as very full of herself in many interviews, but I think she does strive to (at the very least) put herself out there as more giving and generous than her true nature.

One of the things that cracks me up about Beyonce (and a few other women out there) is that she plays one particular publicity game consistently – the old “I’ll have a baby at some point” game. Now, it’s none of my business when she and Jay-Z have a baby, or if they even want to. But in interview after interview they’ve both talked about making babies and how it’s going to happen any day, and then nothing happens. I really don’t think Beyonce has any interest in having a baby, at least not right now or for the foreseeable future. Which is fine – she’s got a bangin’ career, she’s still young, why should anyone pressure her to have a baby? And yet she keeps talking about it, playing the same old game. Imagine my surprise when Beyonce is talking babies again in the February Allure. Beyonce tells the mag: “I definitely want to have a child, but I know from my nephew it’s a lot. I hope that those things will just happen naturally. I still haven’t had time to relax.” That’s the reasoning this week. She needs time to relax.

In the new issue of Allure, Beyonce talks about her desire to have children with her husband, Jay-Z.

“I definitely want to have a child, but I know from my nephew it’s a lot. I hope that those things will just happen naturally. I still haven’t had time to relax,” she tells the magazine.

The ‘Single Ladies’ singer also talks about her alter-ego, playing card games online and her good girl reputation.

“Trust me, I’m not at all, but it is hard living up to people thinking that about you,” Beyonce says of herself.

Her figure: “I always say, ‘I don’t want to lose my curves,’ I like firm curves. You can never do enough squats, you can never do enough sit-ups. I like for women to look feminine.”

Playing spades online: “I play with everybody, and they curse me out when I make mistakes, and kick me out of the room. I love it, it’s really fun because no one knows it’s me.”

Being Sasha Fierce: “The thing that’s interesting is I don’t need Sasha Fierce anymore, because I’ve grown, and I’m now able to merge the two. I want people to see me. I want people to see who I am.”

Fashion: “I love fashion. I’m not a sweats type of girl. I don’t enjoy wearing tennis shoes. I don’t even feel comfortable in them.”

The word ‘bootylicious’ is now in the Oxford Dictionary: “I still can’t believe it! It’s hilarious. I actually wish it was another word that I created. I wish it didn’t have ‘booty’ in it.”

[From PopEater]

Haha, she doesn’t “need” Sasha Fierce anymore! I wonder if Daddy Knowles fired Sasha? I gave myself a chuckle with that one. But seriously, I love how Beyonce is still talking about how Sasha Fierce is totally separate from her. At some point, it becomes less a David Bowie-esque “Ziggy Stardust” and more of a “When Rabbit Howls situation.”

    I think she’s quite a brilliant career woman and a talented musician. She writes most of her own stuff, after all. I just don’t happen to like the type of music and lyrics she produces. Meh.
    But WOW, she looks so pretty and young with those wild curls! Much better than her other, make-up intensive and matronly looks that she often sports. Nice to see her look her age and natural for once.

  2. mollination says:

    shes looking like leona lewis lately

  3. pickelhaube says:

    I hate her, and have hated her since the Destiny’s Child days. She is talentless, formulaic and uninteresting. All her music sounds exactly the same, and it is excruciatingly painful to listen to. She does bland, derivative, cookie-cutter garbage and is constantly lauded as this amazing, unique talent. That “Single Ladies” video was praised as this wonderful amazing video, and all I saw was a big old crippled-looking jackass prancing around like a Clydesdale with some metal brace on it’s hoof….WHAT THE F*CK IS THIS B*TCH’S APPEAL? IMHO, everything about her is intolerable. EVERYTHING. I cannot imagine her breeding and having to hear “OMG EXCLUSIVE” updates and all the other pointless, boring baby news hype they do with every celeb who manages to get themselves knocked up. it would be intolerable and I might even have to sue the entertainment industry for millions due to the trauma it would cause me. I wish she’d disappear so I never have to look at her smarmy, piggy face and her stupid lace front wigs. And take Jay-Z with you, he’s another overrated one.

  4. Peach says:

    I wish she always looked like the curly haired pictures. It’s such a beautiful look for her. She looks soft and natural.

    I guess I just don’t dig the giant long straight hair. But I always wanted crazy curls, so perhaps it’s just grass is greener.

  5. Debbi says:

    Agreed on the wild curls looking great, especially in the scarf picture. I have a theory about why all the talk and no baby. Maybe they are trying, and nothing is happening yet? The language about needing to relax is particularly telling, because it’s the first thing they tell you in all the infertility literature. I know that as my husband and my 2+ year battle to get and stay pregnant drags on, we talk about babies and what kind of parents we’ll be more and more. OK, after reading back to myself, I would like to apologize to all my friends for having to hear it. But that’s my Beyonce’s baby theory, and I’m sticking to it.

  6. princess pea says:

    Woo, she should wear her hair curly all the time. Hot, B.

    I feel like a broken record, but I’m just going to point out that Beyonce didn’t interview herself for Allure. Someone else was there, and given that she’s a woman between the ages of 20 and 30 and has no kids, it’s a GUARANTEE that interviewers are asking about starting a family. If she were single, it would always be questions about men, romance and marriage plans. Now she’s married… HAVE BABIES.

  7. snowball says:

    I’ve always liked her, if not her music sometimes (I hear that Video Phone thing and have seizures). I never got the whole big ego thing, she comes across as cute and a little dorky.

    I get the Sasha Fierce thing. I don’t give it a name, but there are times when I know I need to be something more. I’m pretty shy, but at parties, I have to find a way to mingle and chit chat when I’d rather be home reading a book. So I sort of put on a more assertive “face.” I’m sure as she’s gotten older and had more success, she is able to integrate that persona into her regular self.

    She’s young, she can wait on the babies. Both she and Jay-Z are busy right now, so I’m not surprised that this isn’t a good time for it.

    lol@picklehaube – I wish you’d speak your mind and not beat around the bush. 🙂

  8. lucy2 says:

    I do think she is really pretty and talented – but I don’t typically care for her style or her music.
    Of course she’s going to keep mentioning the b word – celeb babies are a big business and can keep even the fading stars in the spotlight a little longer. At least she does seem to be aware that she’s not ready for it.
    I’m sorry, but I find the Sasha Fierce thing weird.

  9. atticus says:

    Agree that she looks amazing with the wild curls look…she and Jessica Simpson both look so much prettier when they go more au natural.

    @Debbi – I’m so sorry to hear you’re struggling with having a baby. For those who think having a baby is a right, think again. Just ask anyone who is trying so hard to be blessed with this miracle.

    I agree that Beyonce’s music can be excruciating. I like maybe 2 of her songs. Maybe she has range (does she? I don’t even know) but most times she sounds so shrieky. If she does have a baby, hooooooboy. Nothing knocks you off your a$$ more than a newborn.

  10. bite me says:

    what a pretty lacefront beywance is wearing

  11. C-DUB says:

    How many stars give the same interview? This isn’t new. It’s just like Brad and Jen when they were together and EVERYONE was asking them when they were going to have babies.

    I don’t think she comes off full of herself but I do think she comes off a little dingy at times.

    Either way, the girl knows what she wants and goes after it. She has definitely made sure to have all the right folks managing her career. I just need the “Beyonce Machine” to take a rest so she can become a little more personable.

  12. BitterBetty says:

    omg PREACH IT pickelhaube!

    SEETHING hate for this bitch.

  13. Granger says:

    I saw a t.v. special a couple of months ago of her in concert, and prepping for the concert. I have to say, I was amazed and somewhat appalled by how self-absorbed and conceited she was! I mean, I know she didn’t get to where she is without knowing exactly what she wants and not settling for anything less, but I found her attitude offensive after a while. It was all “Look at me, and how amazing I am, and everything I’ve accomplished, and learn from me, because I am AMAZING.” Freaky.

  14. Jeane says:

    Okay, has anyone stopped to think that maybe she is constantly ASKED about babies?
    People complain about celebrities always bringing up the same tired subjects (Jennifer Aniston always talks about being happy single, Rihanna keeps talking about Chris Brown, etc.), but it is very likely that it is the INTERVIEWERS who are always asking the same questions.

  15. Jeane says:

    Oh and she may come across as full of herself and a control freak, but in her defense, she also seems to be very very hard working. Every performance I’ve seen of her, she BRINGS it. That is enough to earn some of my respect. I don’t care whether she has a nasty personality, it’s not like I know her or anything.

    Also like the fact that she keeps her private life PRIVATE, and isn’t constantly twittering the mundane details of her life.
    Even statements she makes about having babies are very non committal.

  16. pickelhaube says:

    Haha Bitterbetty, I wonder which one of us hates her more! Just seeing her smarmy, ugly, full of herself face makes me insane with rage. I HATE HER SOOOO MUCH! It’s really quite crazy, but I’m glad to know I’m not alone. I’m sure you are like me, you stare in amazement at the people who actually like her, and wonder why…why? WHY? How did someone so talentless and unlikable get so famous? WHAT KIND OF GOD ALLOWS THIS? Madness.

    And honestly, there aren’t enough words to describe my insane hatred of this b*tch. if only I could find my thesaurus….

  17. Firestarter says:

    Not every woman has to have the desire to be a mother, and not every woman has to have a baby by a certain age. Having a baby, like getting married, does not make a woman a woman.

    Let people have children on their own terms without always putting some ridiculous timetable on it. I, for one, could care less about her or any other celeb and their baby making plans/timetable. If they do decide to have kids, congrats, if they don’t, congrats on that too.

  18. FrancescaB says:

    Lol pickhaube…

    Beyonce belongs to the same breeders club as Jennifer Aniston. It’s all good when it’s hypothetical, but the reality of some needy screaming poop machine? Hells no. These are ladies of leisure. Kids will ruin the hair.

  19. Pete says:

    Who would their babies to look like Jay-Z? Only a fool. Beyonce is right to wait him out.

  20. SolitaryAngel says:

    @ picklehaube: Oh dear, you got away from me again! Come along, it’s time for your Thorazine and then a nice nap!

  21. SolitaryAngel says:

    Actually, I’m rather glad she has no babies right now….can you imagine the kind of “outfits” Tina Knowles would “style” for Baby Fierce? OMG I shudder to think!

  22. wow says:

    Please don’t let this chick breed. Her thighs will be outrageous.

  23. FrancescaB says:

    Pete! hahahaha

  24. pickelhaube says:

    Mmm, thorazine AND a nap? Sounds like a plan! LOL!

  25. Su says:

    wow so much hate! some of it aint even justified. whether u like her music or not i dare anyone to list who else can peform live as well and as hard as she does?- no lip-synching! and who else has been able to acheive that level of success without spreading the details of their life to each and every magazine? For that reason, she will always have my respect. as has been stated b4, if she keeps on being asked the same question then she’s gonna give the same answers…duh.

  26. Johanna says:

    My friend’s older sister would always say “we’ll have kids someday but not now because there’s so much going on in both our lives” when people would ask her & her husband.
    So one day I ask my girlfriend “when is Abraham & your sister going to have kids?” She’s like are you kidding? She can’t have kids, she just says that to get people off her back! I was shocked because it had never occured to me.
    I’m not saying Beyonce can’t have kids but it would explain why she’s constantly saying that she does want a baby but never does. I think it would be hard to accept that the woman who supposedly can do everything can’t have kids. I’m just putting it out there.

  27. bros says:

    pickelhaub: is that you, solange?

    just kidding. I dont like her either. there isnt anything human about her-she’s just a money making machine.

  28. BitterBetty says:

    @ pickelhaube: ITA. do you remember her episode on punk’d when she was set up to accidentally ruin Christmas and all the orphan kids started fake crying? she had the dumbest, most vacant look on her face…UGH I swear to god this evil bitch could not muster up genuine emotion to save her life! and don’t even get me started on her oily faced father and his creepy rapist mustache…

  29. kermit says:

    Hard working and driven women. She’s overexposed. Press is likely more interested in celeb babies and children than the general public.

  30. SolitaryAngel says:

    @ pickelhaube: 😉

  31. pickelhaube says:

    LOL BitterBetty, I remember that! God, she is vile! You can just look at her and tell that she is insufferable and rude to “the little people”. She believes her own hype, and that’s all it is…HYPE. Her prancing around like a retarded draft horse in her horsehair wigs, screeching her abominable, insipid “music”, doing that stupid butt-popping dance thing she does that makes her look like she’s got a touch of the Downs does not make a superstar, at least IMO. Beyonce (even her NAME is stupid and fills me with rage) is proof that, if marketed right, you CAN sell anything, even if what you’re selling is less valuable and talented than a turd. Because that’s all Beyonce is, a big, smelly turd that someone forgot to flush.

  32. nj says:

    Shrieking with laughter @ Pete. I would not want to take a chance on Jay Z s genes ruining my baby either.

    Also laughing at SolitaryAngel’s very valid point of the baby wearing House of Derion glittery, sequined, fuschia bell bottoms.

  33. Larissa says:

    well motherhood is the time that all women must face selflessness and most women are not prepared for it at first, it comes naturally but you have to be willing. If you are not, than it´s not your time.

    @pickelhaube: Never so much hate was so much fun! LMAO

  34. FrancescaB says:

    picklehaub – I haven’t heard you go off on her acting abilities (complete lack thereof) yet… She’s stunk up the big screen enough that I think it warrants a rant from you … 🙂

  35. pickelhaube says:


    I cannot comment on her acting abilities simply because I couldn’t stand to look at her long enough to judge. Although since she is utterly talentless in every other area of her life, I imagine she is just as sh*teous as an “actress”. I only managed to watch that godawful “Single Ladies” video because I heard that it was named best video of 2009, and I had to mute it because that song makes me want to drive a nail through my head. I am truly astonished at the accolades and awards this no-talent, obnoxious c*nt manages to rack up for being mediocre at BEST. I mean, she must have fans to be as hyped as she is, but I cannot wrap my head around the idea of someone actually LIKING this screeching harpy and paying good money for anything she sh*ts out. She is truly horrid and there’s nothing I hate more than the media’s relentless promotion of talentless hacks, especially when there are more talented and interesting people out there (like Lady Gaga!). It’s insanity, I tell you!


    LOL, I know, right? I love to hate Beyonce…AARGH HER NAME IS SO STUPID *head explodes*

  36. pickelhaube says:

    Oh! But I WILL comment on her outfits and “House of Dereon”. Good God I have NEVER in my life seen such ridiculously ugly clothing as House of Dereon (which BTW is also an asinine name). But I shouldn’t be surprised since Beyonce has the style of a blind 80-year old senile yenta. She reminds me of Fran’s grandmother on “The Nanny”. What non-visually impaired person wants to look like a bedazzled rainbow? WHO BUYS THIS SH*T? I saw a Dereon tracksuit at Ross the other day, this dumb b*tch managed to make a f-ing TRACKSUIT look hideous. How does she fail so spectacularly? No style, no talent, no substance….and yet people lap up the diarrhea that she calls her “music”! WTF?

  37. BitterBetty says:

    I’m LMFAOO @ everything, pickelhaube! you are right on the money about..well, EVERYTHING. screeching harpy is right! the style of a blind 80-year old senile yenta, prancing around like a retarded draft horse in her horsehair wigs – lololol you’re brilliant! you sooo should be writing for this site…

  38. Firestarter says:

    LOL@pickelhaube’s rants, which are pretty spot on.

  39. sasa says:

    I never found her pretty until I saw the curly shots. Now it’s only the eyebrows (and the attitude) which bug me.

  40. Beth says:

    In the interviews that I’ve read and seen, Beyonce always says eventually she’ll have children when she’s not so busy. She never says a specific year or time. Also the interviewer usually brings up kids not Beyonce. I think she’s telling the truth and will have kids when she’s ready. Also although she and Jay-Z have been together for years, they’ve only been married one maybe two years. Let them be married for a second.

  41. Catherine says:

    She personally bugs me, but who can blame her for putting her career first and living the life she dreamed of. Good for her.

  42. lisas says:

    Or… they always ask her about having children?

  43. lurker says:

    This is hilarious! Honestly, it’s why I can barely go a day without visiting this site.

    LOL @pickelhaube – your rants are so true!

  44. M says:

    Beyonce certainly does not write her music. Anyone with any knowledge of music going back to the 60’s knows that she doesn’t write shit.
    I mean, she couldn’t even write that crap that Destiny’s Child put out let alone a ballad.
    This woman is overrated in every way, looks, talent, singing ability.

  45. paranel says:

    I agree with some of you that her personality is not warm , modest or down to earth and I don’t like the ghetto fab style she or Rihanna are into.

  46. Dhavy says:

    I can’t stand her! she has no talent and she’s so full of herself pretending to be all saintly and good. I don’t know who’s worse her or Jlo pretending to be real, please!!! Both of them should call JA and sail to an isolated island and never come back

  47. jule says:

    people and their questions!! GaHHHH, if ur single, its about boyfriends, if you are dating its about marriage, if you are married its about babies. right now I am expecting 1st baby and people are already asking me about a second… WTF!!! Shut Up Already. ok rant over 🙂

  48. elisa says:

    WOW so much hate for Beyonce! I like some of her songs but I’m by no means a fanatic. But give her props, she works hard and is a good singer, even if her type of music isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. I’d rather Beyonce top the charts than that Kesha girl (I HATE tik tok, don’t know how her non-singing ass got so popular. And I refuse to use her $).

    I think it’s kinda sexist that everyone (interviewers) always ask about pregnancy and babies to female celebrities. Jen went thru it too, now it’s Beyonce. Why can’t she just enjoy her stardom? Kids aren’t for everyone. Maybe it’s not the right time, or maybe she’ll never have kids. That’s her business, she shouldn’t be asked about it all the time. It’s sexist that guys aren’t asked those questions. It’s like the media wants to make all the females all the top of their games pregnant, “sit down and have babies!” and not so incidentally, slow down your career…

  49. westender says:

    lol@Picklehaube: Your comments about Beyonce have myself and my co workers(including my boss!)laughing so much!
    We have all agreed not to be drinking coffee when we read this site. Coffee all over the keyboard is not a good thing!

    PS: I totally agree with everything you said!

  50. Jazz says:

    LOL! I thought I hated Beyonce, but I gracefully step aside and hand the crown to pickelhaube!

  51. waseela says:

    Beyonce will never ever breed because she knows her bottom will balloon out and about – its in her genes and no stylist or airbrushing would be able do do anything about her largest behind. All her talking of squating is make believe because her thighs cannot get smaller only bigger and might suffocate anything that comes between them – maybe even JAY-Z’s …. to the point of infertility.

  52. Vajayjay says:

    OMG I finally found others who feel the same about Beyonce!!!!! Talking the truth about Beyonce is like talking about Obama- someone always gets super pissed off and defensive like they know them personally. This woman is NOT talented. She is simply a puppet and whore to the music industry. She is told what to do, what to wear, how to act, and what to say. The only reason she is even popular is because of a bunch of dumbasses like her because shes nicely wrapped in pretty marketing packaging. Her hair isnt even real, hasnt been since she was in Destinys Child. If any of you are envious of her “perfect” curls, go do what she did and buy them from a store. I cant wait till she disappears, and stop tainting peoples vision of what REAL music is!

  53. C-DUB says:

    I don’t care WHAT you say about Beyonce…haters will always hate but watch what you say about Obama!!!

  54. lalaland says:

    woo – you guys are hysterical! Not a huge fan but she is entertaining. Can I pick on something else about her? Her speaking voice. Hate it.

  55. fizXgirl314 says:

    I kind of admire this woman… She’s incredibly business savy even though most of her strategy is based on her sexuality and she did step all over her “friends” in order to get to where she is… but, alas, she is very successful and accomplished…

  56. fizXgirl314 says:

    lol pickel your hatred made me crack up… I saw this THS documentary about her and she really does come across as COMPLETELY full of herself… I was surprised her massive ego hasn’t yet taken physical form and come out as some sort of growth on her body… it was THAT obvious…

  57. bitbrit says:

    gosh. i have a whole heap of respect for her… wouldn’t buy her music or go see her in concert cos i’m not into it, but she has achieved so much for someone so young.

    i love the fact that her appeal (and it would seem her infamy) cuts across racial and cultural boundaries.

    i may be in a minority here, but i’ve thought she was talented, sexy and sassy since i saw her do her thing in that austin powers video from yonks ago.

    give her a break – or don’t. whatever.

    she has money in the bank either way.

  58. solnge says:

    What I hate about this bitch is that she complains about people objectifying her and then shakes her ass at every given opportunity.Plus she has no originality and copies other celebrities.At one point it was jlo.Then it was rihanna,now its shakira,you’ll soon see her do Lady Gaga….
    I could have kissed the academy for giving the oscar to Jennifer whats-her- name instead…
    Pickle-more please!lol

  59. Kim says:

    she does look better in her curly WEAVE

  60. camel says:


    oh god how much did she pay you to post that load of shit?

  61. jayem says:

    @Pickelhaube – That’s possibly the awesomest thing I’ve ever read!

    I was JUST talking to my friend about how much I hate her stupid pants-less Christmas Tree Ornament Barbie outfits and how everytime I saw the commercial for Obsessed, I just laughed hysterically. Seriously, how poor Idris and Ali didn’t fall out laughing while she “acted” is beyond me. She is AWFUL!!

  62. pickelhaube says:

    Haha thanks y’all! I just need a new specific topic and I’ll gladly bash her no-talent ass some more….

  63. Dani says:


    you said house of dereon was an asinine name. i think she named it dereon because it was her mothers maiden name, or grandmothers name or something. i know it has to do with naming it after someone in her family. just fyi in case you didnt know.

    that being said, i cant stand beyonce either. if she comes on the radio, i turn it off. if she comes on tv, i change the channel.

    shes just full of herself and annoying and thinks the world revolves around her.

    newsflash: it doesnt.

  64. Lem says:

    omg. thanks Atticus for the heads up!

    this is the only time I have ever been happy to read about Ms.B

    I ♥ CB commenters

  65. Lem says:

    @ Dani: Dereon/ derriere
    pretty sure it translates as House of Big A**
