Beyoncé opts out of the traditional sit down interview as she is featured in the July issue of Essence magazine. Can we say trend-sett-ter! Her picture on the cover gives off a laid back vibe and she looks very relaxed. She talks about rejuvenating herself after a nine-month break and how that break gave her the inspiration to come back stronger than ever. No wonder she looks so refreshed. Check out an excerpt from her self-written “Eat, Play, Love!” article  below:

“I had talked about taking a vacation before, but always ended up in the studio after two weeks, so no one believed me. This time, though, I was serious. I was going to give myself a year to do the things I never get to do. Simple things like play with my nephew, pick him up from school, visit museums, go to concerts, see some Broadway shows, learn to cook a meal and spend time with my husband (Jay-Z). …

“Yes, I needed some relaxation, but I wanted inspiration too, from regular, everyday things. They did not have to be over-the-top productions. I was looking for tiny moments that would speak to my heart and make me smile.”

And there you have it…straight from the Sasha Fierce’s mouth…
