Beyonce claims childbirth made her sexier. Which I totally believe because do ya’ll remember before Beyonce had Blue Ivy and she was just this amazingly nonsexual woman who exuded a total sense of everything that was not-sexy? Me neither. I’m not totally positive, but I think Beyonce probably would look gorgeous in just about anything, including my own personal post-baby wardrobe, styled by me but accessorized by baby vomit and the occasional pudding stain on my oversized T-shirt.
Did you guys ever get in this rut after giving birth where you would wear the same thing over and over again, washing it every two days or else changing into an outfit that was almost identical to the one you just took off? That was my jam. And “washing” my face with baby wipes. Eventually I started caring about how I look again, but in those early days of baby bliss all I cared about was nursing, dealing with mastitis, and watching old episodes of The Sopranos. I’m not sure but I’m almost 100% positive this is not Beyonce’s jam. Beyonce recently spoke to GQ Magazine , because she was named in the “Sexiest Women of the 21st Century” issue, and of course she was, because she is Beyonce, and according to US Magazine said this:
“When I gave birth, that was the first time I truly let go and surrendered. And it taught me how amazing that feels,” the “Crazy in Love” singer tells GQ. “Giving birth made me realize the power of being a woman. I have so much more substance in my life. And expressing that excitement and that sensuality and the connection I have with my husband — I’m a lot more comfortable with that now. I actually feel like my child introduced me to myself.”
I really hope “surrendered” means that while giving birth she looked like shit and swore a lot and had an ugly face on during labor, but it probably doesn’t. I bet Beyonce even had a totally beautiful childbirth experience. Her “surrendering” was having her hair not perfectly style whilst in labor, mine was vomiting all over my hospital gown.
But I do love the part about “my child introduced me to myself” because I really get what she is saying there. My children have all made me realize who I am as a person. But I still don’t think giving birth to them made me any more sensual. But then again, I’m not Beyonce. Sad face.
