Beyonce Marie Claire UK 2008 Pictures & Interview

Beyonce Marie Claire UK 2008 Pictures & Interview – Beyonce Knowles is the cover girl of the October issue of Marie Claire UK.Knowles did an interview where she reveled that she hopes to become an icon. Here is an excerpt of her interview:

“I’m over being a pop star.” “I don’t wanna be a hot girl. And I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot. I feel like I’m highly respected, which is more important than any award or any amount of records. And I feel like there comes a point when being a pop star is not enough.”
“Being a legend, an icon, absolutely not. And, at this point, that’s what I’m trying to do.”

On playing jazz great and former heroin addict Etta James in the movie Cadillac Records:

“I’ve been saying for a long time that I wanted to do something dark.People are going to be very shocked. It’s the complete opposite of me. It was very emotionally draining. I was exhausted.”

Beyonce visited a drop-in center for drug addicts in Brooklyn to prepare for the role:

“I was really afraid. I didn’t know what I would see, because I’d never seen anything like that…I didn’t want to ask questions that were inappropriate, but (the people there) were very open and I have a new understanding. I never judge, but I just didn’t understand how, if you had children and so many things to lose, you could be so deep into your addiction that you just let all of that go.”

Beyonce on Fame And Privacy:

“I’m grateful, but it’s difficult. There are responsibilities that come along with this life: just taking my three-year-old nephew to the park is a big ordeal. Or trying to have a romantic dinner without someone sneaking in to film the whole thing. I have to work really hard, and it’s fine, because I like it, I love it, but it is a lot of sacrifice.”
