As one half of Hollywood’s top-earning couple – she and her hubby Jay Z reportedly raked in a combined $122 million last year – the 28-year-old megastar is used to managing a hectic schedule. But it sounds as though Beyonce is ready to take a break from work – and perhaps to switch her focus to family.
“I definitely want to have a child, but I know from my nephew it’s a lot,” she tells Allure. “I hope that those things will just happen naturally. I still haven’t had time to relax.”
Along with spending time with her little sister Solange‘s son Daniel, Beyonce is content for now to be a role model to the millions of young girls and women who look up to her. It’s a responsibility she doesn’t take lightly.
“Growing up in a female group and in a hair salon, I have always been passionate about women,” she reveals. “I just think we need each other, and the things that inspire me to write songs are things that I think women need to hear. I’m happy to be a voice, one of the many. I’m happy to be, in some way, a role model.”
