Beyonce to Oprah: How Jay-Z Helped Her Succeed [Preview]
The two ladies get candid
Beyonce and Oprah's anticipated sit-down interview will air Saturday night and on it the singer reveals how both her relationship with Jay-Z (and her split from her manager father Mathew) helped her success.
On her dad: “It took a while for me and my dad to have an understanding. When I turned 18 and started handling my business more, he went into shock. And we had our issues. I’d say ‘No’ to something, and he’d book it anyway. Then I’d have to do it because I’d look bad [if I didn't]. We would fight sometimes, and it took about two years, to when I was 20, for him to realize, ‘Oh, she is an adult now, and if she doesn’t wanna do something, I can’t make her do it.’”
On Jay-Z: "I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man. It gives me such a foundation. [He's helped me] on so many levels. That foundation is so important in a relationship and just to have someone that you just like, you know, is so important and someone that is honest." (Hollywood Reporter)
