Beyonce Covers 'W' July 2011
Here’s what the 29-year-old entertainer had to share with the magazine:
On deciding on the feel of a video as she sings a song: “When I sing a song, I definitely have the image for the video in my mind. I kind of hear the choreography that will be in the video, and I can see how I’ll look, even before anyone – the record company, the director – has heard the song.”
On wanting to move out of her comfort zone on 4: “I wanted this record to come from a raw place. Playing Etta James in the movie Cadillac Records really changed me. It was a darker character, and I realized that if anything is too comfortable, I want to run from it. It’s no fun being safe.”
