In case you didn’t know, Beyoncé has officially endorsed presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden for this year’s election.
The Texas-born songstress took to Instagram to upload a boomerang, sporting an all-too-appropriate “Biden Harris” face mask. (We love a socially responsible queen.) In her caption and subsequent post, she urged her followers to exercise their civic right to vote with the message: “the most important drop is at the ballot box.” Fitting, given the latest drop of her athleisure brand Ivy Park ‘Drip 2’ nearly broke every internet shopping cart just a few short days ago. Between running the world, a successful clothing empire, and driving cultural conversations, one might wonder what’s left for Beyoncé to run next? The answer? A successful home life.
The Black Is King artist recently covered British Vogue’s December 2020 issue where she spoke candidly about her creative process, the current social climate, and finding her joy. “I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life,” she explained to the magazine. “I came into the music industry at 15 years old and grew up with the world watching, and I have put out projects non-stop. I released Lemonade during the Formation World Tour, gave birth to twins, performed at Coachella, directed Homecoming, went on another world tour with Jay, then Black Is King, all back to back. It’s been heavy and hectic. I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on building my legacy and representing my culture the best way I know how. Now, I’ve decided to give myself permission to focus on my joy.”
Part of that joy is watching her eldest daughter, Blue Ivy grow and evolve. “Blue is very smart, and she is aware that there is a shift, but it is my job as a parent to do my best to keep her world as positive and safe as can be for an eight-year-old,” Bey gushed.
And speaking on how the pandemic has affected her personally, she had this to say: “It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed. I have learnt that my voice is clearer when I am still. I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life.”
Oh, and she peeped your Halloween tributes.
