Beyonce is the cover star for Harper's Bazaar The Icon Issue and she spoke to the publication about why she chose to live a private life.

She explained that it is easy to lose oneself in the entertainment industry, so she chose to preserve herself by deciding what to share with the world.

She said in the magazine's September issue: "We live in a world with few boundaries and a lot of access.

"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.

"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 added: "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."Latest Post
