"I’ve fought to protect my sanity and my privacy" - Beyonce explains herself in a conversation.

This is similar to a one-on-one conversation in which one person listens and the other expresses his pent-up emotions.

Firstly Beyonce is a star for Harper's Bazaar a publication that endorses her on the their cover page. Beyonce spoke to the publication expressing her private feelings. 

In summary, her objective is to inspire others through her music, yet most of the time, they are judged by what others publicly say about them - the internet.

You'd would get to know them better, if you could take a step back from the information you read online. 

 She criticizes the opinion about her:  "There are so many internet therapists, comment critics, and experts with no expertise. Our reality can be warped because it’s based on a personalized algorithm. It shows us whatever truths we are searching for, and that’s dangerous" .

She preach getting to know the real world and not public opinion:  "We can create our own false reality when we’re not fed a balance of what’s truly going on in the world. It’s easy to forget that there’s still so much to discover outside of our phones" .

"I’m grateful I have the ability to choose what I want to share."

She narrates: "One day I decided I wanted to be like Sade and Prince. I wanted the focus to be on my music, because if my art isn’t strong enough or meaningful enough to keep people interested and inspired, then I’m in the wrong business. My music, my films, my art, my message — that should be enough."

She talks about her dynamism in her role of character: "Throughout my career, I’ve been intentional about setting boundaries between my stage persona and my personal life. My family and friends often forget the side of me that is the beast in stilettos until they are watching me perform."

I call this part redemption song: "It can be easy to lose yourself very quickly in this industry. It takes your spirit and light, then spits you out. I’ve seen it countless times, not only with celebrities but also producers, directors, executives, etc. It’s not for everyone. Before I started, I decided that I’d only pursue this career if my self-worth was dependent on more than celebrity success."

 She revealed fame offers no privacy, but she had to fight, to reserve it for those she loves. And because she chooses to be reserved, many misinterpret her wrongly:

"I’ve fought to protect my sanity and my privacy because the quality of my life depended on it. A lot of who I am is reserved for the people I love and trust. Those who don’t know me and have never met me might interpret that as being closed off. Trust, the reason those folks don’t see certain things about me is because my Virgo ass does not want them to see it. It’s not because it doesn’t exist!"
