Beyoncé and Jay-Z wed in a private ceremony on April 4 in New York.
“I never talked about relationships,” Beyoncé told ESSENCE in October 2005. “I only talk about them in my songwriting; otherwise things get too messy. It has worked out because now nobody expects me to talk about them. But it’s hard too,” she admitted. “You fall in love and you want to tell everybody. But that’s a place I just don’t go.”
