On her trip to Cuba and the backlash she and Jay-Z received: “You know, it was such a beautiful trip. I  met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really….it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country, and it was actually quite shocking.”

On her new animation film Epic: “You know, I was so honored when they asked for me to do this role. And I was actually pregnant at the time. And I thought, ‘You know, by the time this comes out my daughter will understand  it’s my voice and what an incredible, cool point.”

It’s such a beautiful role and it has so much depth. You know, it’s so emotional and I literally, I was crying when I did the voiceover. And it was the first thing I did after giving birth. And there’s a scene where I pick the pod. And literally there were tears falling [down my face]. I imagined seeing her for the first time and it was really emotional. The perfect first job for me.”

On not being as high maintenance as many might assume: “You know, at the end of the day you’re the same exact person. You know, I still like the simple things. Like, I have on my press-on nails right now. I have on my store-bought press-on nails. But my color, my paint is professionally done.”

On whether she plans on having more kids and protecting Blue Ivy: “I would like more children, I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being big sister. And I am very protective. I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life … in the back of my mind, she’s my priority. And life is completely different now. So I’m — I feel really, really just lucky that I can still do what I love, and now have a way bigger meaning. And that’s to be her mother.”
