Beyonce has only been 30 for three weeks, but it’s already her “best birthday year ever,” the songstress told omg at the launch for her third perfume, Pulse, in New York City recently.
“Everything that I always wanted is happening,” she admitted. “It happens in God’s time, and I am happy it is happening now. It is the best time of my life.”
The release of her new perfume, the recent success of her House of Dereon fashion line in London, and platinum sales of her latest album, 4, probably have something to do with her happiness, but there’s another project in the works she’s even more excited about — her future bundle of joy. Less than a month ago, the pop singer revealed she and famous husband Jay-Z are expecting.
“The fact that I am a woman is such a gift. And I am about to give the biggest gift a human can ever have,” she gushed. “I just feel so strong. It is like a miracle.”
And the “Love on Top” singer has no doubt she’s got the perfect partner with whom to raise a family. “To have a strong foundation for my child has always been so important for me,” she explained. “I am really best friends with the person that I am having this child with.”
When it comes to her business endeavors, including her line of fragrances, Bey says she looked to some Hollywood legends for inspiration. “I just think about Elizabeth Taylor sand all of the icons that I respect, and they have their own scent[s]. I think it is a part of being an icon,” she said. “For me to be one of those women, I don’t take it lightly.”
