On Giving Birth: “Everything that scared me just was not present in that room. So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction . . . it was the best day of my life.”

On her split with her father as business manager:  “My soul has been tarnished. My father taught me so much about being a businesswoman,” she says. “And I’m understanding him a lot now. . . . A lot of the crazy things he did were necessary.”

On rumors of a fake pregnancy: “That was very odd. Who even thinks that? Like, who would make that up. . . . You can’t take it too seriously.”

Beyoncé says her new music “is a lot more sensual . . . empowering.” It celebrates being a wife and a mother, reflecting the obvious changes in her life. “Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body,” she says. “I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame.”

The Grammys is basically the Superbowl of Fashion & Music!

It is my favorite award show every year and the outfits and performances never disappoint and this year was no different.

My favorite performances of the night were:

1. Rihanna & Mikky Ecko

2. Miguel & Wiz Khalifa

3. Bob Marley Tribute featuring:

Sting, Bruno Mars, Rihanna + Damian & Ziggy Marley

Some other hit performances were Kelly Clarkson, Mumford & Sons, Alicia Keys with Maroon 5, and Carrie Underwood. A big miss for me unfortunately was Frank Ocean. I think he chose the wrong song and his voice usually sends chills down your spine yet last night it did the opposite.

Now let’s talk fashion!

Prior to the big day, CBS sent out a memo about the do’s & dont’s for the Grammy Awards attire. Needless to say, no one really cared about that memo LOL

Here were my favorite looks:

Rihanna in a custom red Azzedine Alaïa dress

This was my favorite look of the night!

I know that those last 2 outfits were on some Worst Dressed List but I love when people take a chance, especially at the Grammys. At least they didn’t show up dressed like Kaley Cuoco, while she looked cute this is the Grammys not Sunday Brunch with the girls.
