Beyoncé: Motherhood changed me

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Beyoncé is one of the biggest superstars in the world. She's also a wife and mother. Now she says being a mom has changed the way she looks at herself and her career.

In a rare public appearance by Beyoncé after a private directors' screening of her new visual album, she took the microphone to the crowd's delight. She said she is proud of herself as a woman and that motherhood has changed her perspective on life. She said being a mom helped her embrace her imperfections (not that any are visible) and all the things that make a woman interesting that might not fit society's expectations.

"I feel completely liberated, and I could no longer create art for other people," she said.

What she did was change the game by taking charge of every aspect herself.

"I wanted to follow the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire," she said.

With the instant success of this album, Beyoncé becomes the first woman artist to have her first 5 albums top the charts. You can believe this won't be the only record she breaks.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.

    A NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
