Beyonce Bold and Beautiful on 'Complex' Cover


So after taking a closer to listen to her latest album 4 I like, I like it A LOT! After hearing "Run the World (Girls)", like many out there I wasn't too sure how I felt about the latest album from the Pop Diva.  However, I've come to the conclusion that Beyonce shouldn't be penalized for trying new sounds but rather embraced for  changing things up and giving us something new to listen to. Some tracks I really like are "End of Time" and her latest single "Best Thing I Never Had".  Check out what Beyonce had to say in her latest interview with Complex Magazine.

On striving to make music that’s interesting for everyone:
“I’ve found that with hit records the melody and lyrics come together [naturally]. I usually know from the hook if the song is something that transcends language, race, and genre, and if it’s something that affects pop culture. It’s something I can visualize people singing in stadiums all over the world. But my favorite songs on my albums are usually not my singles.”

On dealing with down days: 
“Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. People who complain really get on my nerves. When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”

On what she’d like her legacy to be: 
“I just want my legacy to be great music. Someone who was a risk taker and someone who had songs that struck conversation and emotion.”
