Beyonce has released “Part 2: Imperfection,” a video that follows up “Part 1: The Visual Album.” Both videos are part of her “Self-Titled” art feature series on YouTube.
In “Part 2,” Beyonce discusses the the message of her self-titled album and how it is rooted in her childhood.
“The trophy [in videos for the visual album] represents all of the sacrifices I made as a kid,” Beyonce says. “All of the time that I lost, being on the road, in the studios as a child. And I just want to blow that shit up. I have a lot of awards. I have a lot of these things. They’re amazing. I’ve worked harder than probably everybody I know to get those things.
“But nothing feels like my child saying, ‘mommy,'” Beyonce continues. “Nothing feels like when I look my husband in the eyes. Nothing feels like when I’m respected, when I get on the stage and I see I’m changing peoples’ lives. Those are the things that matter. At this point in my life, that’s what I’m striving for: growth, love, happiness, fun. Enjoy your life. It’s short. That’s the message.”
