She recently spoke with Complex magazine about her legacy, and welcoming other female singers, contrary to those pesky rumors of tension with the likes of Rihanna. “There is room on this earth for many queens,” she said. “I have no desire for anyone else’s throne.”
Bey also touched on what she’d like people to remember her for. “I just want my legacy to be great music,” said Mrs. Carter, adding that she’d like to be known as “someone who was a risk taker and someone who had songs that struck conversation and emotion.”
For someone who has inspired so many, she also shared what it’s like living with another highly influential artist, her hubby Jay-Z.
“His lyrics have fathered generations,” she said. “There are moments when I see his lips moving and I can see lyrics floating above his head and I think, ‘Wow! How did I get so lucky to be able to witness this level of genius so closely?'”
