Beyonce Dishes It Up For First Gay Press Interview In 6 Years, Talks "A Star Is Born" & Lady Gaga

Beyonce's still running the world amongst other things after her 4 album release.  She did an interview for her gay fans...her first interview with gay media in 5 years.

 

Check out her chit-chat with PrideSource where she dishes about Lady Gaga, how her hair & makeup people keep her in the know, her new role in "A Star Is Born," plus what she learns from her gay fans....

Bey chatted with Between The Lines/PrideSource website recently.  And they got King Bey to open up about why she feels Lady Gaga is the most talented pop star in the world, plus her connection with her gay fans:

I know, according to you, the girls run the world - but what do you think about the girls and the gays teaming up and running the world together?

Well, that's what I meant when I said girls. (Laughs)

Do you know enough gay people so that we could successfully pull this off and take over the world?

Absolutely. I think it's happening already. I remember my friends were telling me when the song "Run the World (Girls)" first came out in the clubs the kids were going crazy, and I thought it was so wonderful and I was so excited to know that the reception was so positive.

You don't do a lot of gay press, but you have to know that you have a huge a gay following.

Yes, I do.

When did you feel a real connection with your gay fans?

I've always had a connection. Most of my audience is actually women and my gay fans, and I've seen a lot of the younger boys kind of grow up to my music. It's great when I'm able to do the meet and greets, because I'm able to really connect and have conversations. People look at some of the artists that I admire - like Diana Ross and Cher - and they identity that glamour with Sasha Fierce, and I've been really inspired by the language. I have my (gay) stylists and my makeup artist, and all of their stories and the slang words I always put it in my music. We inspire each other. Like I said, we're one.

 

I have so many stories; I don't even know where to begin. I know that I just recently had a contest where I had everyone reenact my artwork on Twitter. Just seeing some of the guys who dressed up - like my hairstylist dressed up as Sasha Fierce from "Single Ladies" for Halloween, and I saw so many people dressed up in that glove and bodysuit - really makes me feel like I'm doing my job and some of the fashion is making its mark. To know that people can be free and confident and do what they want themselves, and I can be the person they want to look like (laughs), it's really such a blessing for me, and it's very inspiring. I'm very happy and proud of that.

Yes, you've inspired lots of drag queens out there. What tips can you give them to be a better Beyoncé?

I have many different looks, so finding what works best for your silhouette and your face, because I've had every kind of hair style and I know for me there are certain things that I love to wear and there's certain makeup and colors - bright colors on my eyes - that just don't compliment my features. So I think just figuring out which Beyoncé works best for your figure and features.

For your upcoming role in the remake of "A Star Is Born," you'll be part of a lineage of gay icons including Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. How does it feel knowing that? Is it intimidating?

I'm slightly a bit intimated, I have to say. I feel a bit overwhelmed, and I'm still in shock. (Laughs) But the studio and Clint (Eastwood, the director) believe in me, and I feel like I've been really selective and I've waited and worked really hard and I've done different types of movies - from comedies to thrillers to drama when I played Etta James - and I really wanted to make sure I was ready. I do believe that at this point I am ready and I've been disciplined and I've surrounded myself with really good actors. I hope this is going to be as wonderful of an experience as I feel it's going to be.

I just remember growing up seeing Barbra Streisand and knowing that she represented that generation's star, and being an African-American woman and being the person that's represented is such an honor. I respect it and I cherish it and I'm going to work so hard - harder than I've ever worked - to make sure that I live up to filling the shoes of those other women.

Last year, Lady Gaga made this remark in an interview with E!: "I was very excited to be working with Beyoncé again. It just sort of works out because we both like women." What did she mean by that?

(Laughs) Well... I'm all about women working together and supporting each other and learning from each other, and I feel like sometimes women get a bad rap. It's like we're competitive and we can't respect each other especially if we're both out around the same time - they think we're going to kill each other. And it's all about women learning from each other, and I respect talent and I respect people that work hard - and good people.

I love Gaga. I mean, if she didn't perform and she wasn't a singer, just as a human being I love her to death. But on top of it, she is the most talented pop star right now, and I'm so happy for her. It's just really inspiring to see someone who just creates their own destiny and comes up with their own looks and writes their own songs and choreographs and is in control and is not contrived. If you took away every bit of costume and she just sat in front of a piano, she would still tear it down. She's just that talented, and she deserves it all. And I'm just happy to work with her. I love her.

 

Peep the rest of the interview over at Pride Source.

Great interview. You can tell she has a good head on her shoulders for business. She's quite smart even though her shyness makes her come off as naive. True talent and I appreciate that.

bey is very talented but i think she is very inarticulate in interviews. Sometimes it becomes hard to watch/listen. I'm not hating or bashing her in any way...i just think she needs to work on her interviewing skills. It's just something i've noticed alot.

welp that's what happens when

welp that's what happens when them dollars and fame are the driving forces in a person's life. I wish more folks would encourage kids to get their heads in the books, so that they'd realize that their future career goals shouldn't be limited to becoming an athlete, a rapper, a singer, or an actor/actrice, or a vixen/groupie. They all have the potential to be doctors, entrepreneurs, lawyers...basically professionals and whatever else is out there. I wish more celebs would inspire the kiddies in this way.

Now my baby bey can't act. But id much rather see her than knock knees thud. Let's be real! Beyonce is Beyonce that's why she got the role.

Well you're NOT Clint

Well you're NOT Clint Eastwood(thank Goodness). LOL@ Taraji P Henson having pipes.On what planet?!? Not when she clearly lip syncing to a great singer in the Tyler perry movie(i can do bad myself).Not here for that. Least we know Beyonce posses the vocal talent to deliver her own vocal performance without lip syncing to somebody Else voice.Clearly, Both Clint Eastwood and Barbra Streisand recognize and acknowledge her talent. So You haters can stay mad,bitter,ugly and poor.
TruthTeller's picture

Since when does speaking on

Since when does speaking on 'my' opinion equate to being a hater! I don't hate anyone but I think seeing talent and having talent is two totally different things!!! Taraji can sing very well and can act very well! Beyonce has not been able to do it...Sorry it is what it is! Nia Long said it best "If you’re a singer not an actress, you should sing. If you’re a rapper, you should rap.”

Mr. Eastwood does not lend himself to bad actors/actresses, He saw something worthy in Beyonce. So rest assured that with his direction, even Beyonce will come up Oscar worthy for her performance in "A Star is Born."

I was just reading an article

I was just reading an article in Reuters and learned that Beyonce's song "I was Here" was yet another "inspired" song. In her own words she states "I got a call from Diane (Warren) and she played the song on guitar over the phone, and I said, "Oh my god, I have to have this song." It was inspired by September 11. It's the tenth anniversary and I thought, "Wow, this really completes my album." I'm so thru with her inspirations. Is she really star quality? Check out the interview for yourself. http://www.beyonceonline.com/us/news/beyonc%C3%A9-talks-star-born-and-i-...

Awww...the haters are mad

Awww...the haters are mad that Legendary Actor/Director, Clint Eastwood choose Beyonce and not Jhud. Sorry jhud and her 1 dimensional voice, which basically consist of being loud and shrieking doesn't have the vocal versatility or screen presence to pull this role off. Jhud COULD NEVER pull off a Barbra Streisand song, which requires way more vocal skills than more than just over singing badly.

LMAO @ HATERS repeatedly

LMAO @ HATERS repeatedly posting that weak rumor of beyonce being homophobic that has been long dismissed and dispelled. If any of you ,moronic idiots had any common sense, you would have done your homework about Beyonce's gay uncle who died by complications by AIDS,and how he influenced and took care of her. I love how some the hater act like Beyonce wasn't on the Instinct magazine cover, expressing her love for her gay fans. Never mind majority of stylists and behind scene people thatw ork with her are gay. Just because she doesn't go around announcing to whole world and attempting to milk the gays(a la gaga0 doesn't mean she doesn't genuinely care about her gay fans.

Kelly had a bangin song a couple of yrs ago here comes Bey with hers, that knocked Kelly off, then here she comes again. it's like How much can I get or do before any other female artist gets to it. sad :(. as for the Gay community that's her interveiw . I wish her and J would not be so greedy, you can't take none of it with you love. have some kids, that is what you stated that you were working hard to build your empire for. DAMN!!!! keep working just stop being greedy.

I think Clint Eastwood is

I think Clint Eastwood is making a huge mistake in casting Beyonce in the remake of A Star is Born. Beyonce can't act to save her life! Beyonce screams slow tunes and her acting is wooden. Jennifer Hudson would have been a better choice for the role because she has a better voice than Beyonce. Her voice gives you goose bumps and she does a better job at acting than Beyonce. I think that Beyonce will just attract curiosity in the beginning but Jennifer will keep people coming back.

Well I think they made the right and perfect choice in casting Beyonce for the lead part. Yes Jenifer has a strong voice but so does Beyonce. Also to say that Beyonce can't act are you serious? Jenifer can't act and her getting that Oscar was really due to her singing that song. Now to make a long story short, The right person was cast for this role and I'm happy that they did cast her. Beyonce is going to surprise you doubters, just watch and see. Also Beyonce has a great strong trained voice and she's amazing. So please stop comparing her with Jenifer, they both haave great voices and when movie roles come up best believe directors as well as producers anmda who ever is in charge of casting, knows who they want for whatever roles.
