Beyonce Covers 'Self' June 2009

Self Magazine’s June 2009 cover star Beyonce Knowles shares her secrets about how she gets in shape while on tour, including her diet and fitness regimes. Here are some interview highlights:

On the future she likes to keep: “To me, it’s sexier when it doesn’t look like you go to the gym. If you look like you’ve been spending a lot of time in the gym, then it just looks like you spend a lot of time in the gym. (laughs) So I never want to get to that point where it’s not natural. I think it’s important to feel like a woman, as well as look like a woman.”

On her cheat food: “When I’m completely overwhelmed and tired, comfort food helps. I’ll want to have some ice cream. Or when the tour is behind, I’m like, I just want some Krispy Kremes! [Because] there’s too much good food out there to never indulge. When I’m off, I feel like I’ve earned [the right] to eat what I want, and I give myself a certain amount of time.”

On using three strategies to stay motivated: First, she keeps a painting at the gym that features an Oscar, so when she’s running, she’s literally running toward her next goal. “I look at it, and I’m like, OK, I have to stay in shape.” A second tactic—which she only sheepishly admits—is shopping. “I buy something too small and then say, ‘I have a reason! I need to wear these jeans or this hot dress!’” Finally, and most important, she knows that she has eight teeny Thierry Mugler outfits to rock on tour all year long. “[All it takes is to] do a fitting and see that my costume doesn’t fit anymore,” she says, laughing. “I know I have to keep things in all the right places!”

    “On using three strategies to stay motivated: First, she keeps a painting at the gym that features an Oscar, so when she’s running, she’s literally running toward her next goal.”

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Wow, I hope she realizes that she’ll be running towards that goal forever, because lord knows, she’s one of the worst actress in hollywood.

  • cody

    She looks like the copy cat of her mother and that is not a compliment!

  • b!tch

    She is so full of herself and treat people like sh!th without any respect who the hell she thinks she is ?

  • ?

    She is just about food, all of her interviews are about food and size, has she something else to say? stupid fat cow

  • RM

    *** Transvenstite Alert ***

  • swaggerjacker

    She will NEVER win an Oscar so she needs to give up on that goal and take that picture down.

  • M

    Wow, you are some really hateful people, good luck with that.

    Beyonce has more money, fans, hits and accomplishments than you will EVER have and she is only 28. She has seen more countries than you will ever travel to. I know that it hurts, but give credit where credit is due. You are not in her league or in competition with her.

    She could have gotten breast implants, a nose job or plastic surgery like the rest of fake Hollywood but she has set a different standard for beauty. You can love yourself for who you are!

    And she is naturally beautiful, I would love to see some of your pictures posted! Ha! Then lets see who has the right to talk!

  • lol

    @M:

    Nose job and breast implants means natural beauty to you?lol

    Please she chats such Crap!!!

  • Steve

    Beyonce is fat.

  • a

    she shouldnt be talking about ”not natural”.if anyone cheats with their looks its her!and I’d rather have Madonnas toned body than hers!

  • http://ecctv.livejournal.com/ ecctv

    she clearly makes me hate my race, but only because my buttocks jiggles a lot more than her’s and that’s a lot

  • dEE

    nATURAL my behind! Talented….most definitely. Shape and any other publication or person for that matter that allows those who choose to get a surgeon’s assistance to speak to the masses about their bodies are misguided. Call me hateful or jealous or whatever. She has right to do as she pleases but she has assistance other than personal trainers and chefs. Possible lipo to belly a while back, implants (albeit tastefully done) nose job and sometimes wears butt padding since she has slimmed down. Not natural…..kim kardashian not natural and many others. To each their own, but it is upsetting when people who use surgery to change themselves are put up as standard and even as au natural

  • WOW
