On body positivity, her health and looking back –
“After the birth of my first child, I believed in the things society said about how my body should look. “I put pressure on myself to lose all the baby weight in three months, and scheduled a small tour to assure I would do it. Looking back, that was crazy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I was still breastfeeding when I performed the Revel shows in Atlantic City in 2012, After the twins, I approached things differently. I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir. I was swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and my babies’ health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Jay-Z being a supportive husband –
“My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, a best friend, and father. I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until months later.”
