Beyoncé Gives ‘Zero F**ks’ About Her Weight Fluctuating, Says It’s ‘Liberating’

Moving into the new year, you need a spirit guide, right? We all do. And Beyoncé for Elle’s January cover is it — the singer-mogul-mom’s take on body image alone will shift your perspective in a powerful way heading into a fresh 365 days. Wipe your insecurities clean with Bey’s words about tuning out people’s constant comments on her appearance and how she’s finally arrived at “the most liberating place to be” when it comes to body positivity.

Speaking to Elle about everything from motherhood to her new IVY PARK x adidas collection, Beyoncé opened herself up for a rare “Ask Me Anything” with her Beyhive. Not surprisingly, one fan wanted to know how the superstar handles the relentless scrutiny over her appearance and weight fluctuations. And as Beyoncé tells it, getting to the mental space she’s in now about her body took time. “If someone told me 15 years ago that my body would go through so many changes and fluctuations, and that I would feel more womanly and secure with my curves, I would not have believed them. But children and maturity have taught me to value myself beyond my physical appearance and really understand that I am more than enough no matter what stage I’m at in life,” she shared.

So, where exactly does that leave Beyoncé when it comes to her attitude toward other people’s opinions? “Giving zero f**ks is the most liberating place to be,” she shared. “Also knowing true beauty is something you cannot see. I wish more people focused on discovering the beauty within themselves rather than critiquing other folks’ grills.”
