Beyonce is releasing a multi-part behind the scenes documentary on the making of her record-breaking self-titled visual album, and the latest part to land on YouTube is all about how she learnt to prioritise in life.
As she says in her song 'Pretty Hurts': "Perfection is a disease of a nation ... pretty hurts."
The 32-year-old singer then goes on to talk about how she no longer spends her time striving for perfection, understands that failure can be a good thing and has finally got her priorities right:
"Nothing feels better than hearing my child say, 'Mommy!'," the actress explains. "Nothing feels like when I look my husband in the eye. Nothing feels like when I'm respected, when I get on the stage and I feel like I'm changing people's lives. Those are the things that matter, and that's what I'm striving for at this point in my life: growth, love, happiness, fun. Enjoy your life; it's short."
