The ‘Halo’ singer, Beyoncé has disclosed her new fondness for hemp after using CBD products to help fight insomnia and relax.
Beyoncé is the latest guest in Bazaar magazine and she tells us what she had been up to during the pandemic. She discovered her new passion and is ready to cultivate hemp.
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, a multi-talented singer and a mother of three also revealed this.
“I remember being in a meeting discussing analytics, and I was told the research discovered that my fans did not like when my photography was black and white.”
“They told me I wouldn’t sell if it wasn’t in color. That was ridiculous. It pissed me off that an agency could dictate what my fans wanted based on a survey.”
“Who did they ask? How is it possible to generalize people this much? Are these studies accurate? Are they fair? Are all the people I’m trying to uplift and shine a light on included? They’re not. It triggered me when I was told, “These studies show…”, she added.
“I was so exhausted and annoyed with these formulaic corporate companies that I based my whole next project off of black and white photography, including the videos for “Single Ladies” and “If I Were a Boy” and all of the artwork by Peter Lindbergh for I Am…Sasha Fierce, which ended up being my biggest commercial success to date. I try to keep the human feeling and spirit and emotion in my decision-making.”
Talking about how she takes care of herself, Beyoncé talked about her fondness for cannabidiol (CBD) products.
“I think like many women, I have felt the pressure of being the backbone of my family and my company and didn’t realize how much that takes a toll on my mental and physical well-being.”
“I have not always made myself a priority. I’ve personally struggled with insomnia from touring for more than half of my life. Years of wear and tear on my muscles from dancing in heels.”
“In the past, I spent too much time on diets, with the misconception that self-care meant exercising and being overly conscious of my body.”
“During quarantine, I went from overindulgences to creating positive rituals drawing from past generations and putting my own spin on things. I discovered CBD on my last tour, and I’ve experienced its benefits for soreness and inflammation.”
“It helped with my restless nights and the agitation that comes from not being able to fall asleep.”
“And now I’m building a hemp and a honey farm. I’ve even got hives on my roof! And I’m so happy that my daughters will have the example of those rituals from me.”, Beyoncé said.
Of course, music was not left out. The ‘Black Is King’ singer spoke about being in ithe studio for a year and half trying to prepare some projects for her ‘Beyhive’.
“With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible.”
“Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies.”
“Yes, the music is coming!”
