Beyonce Weight Loss 2014: Mrs. Carter Strips Off In New Music Videos After Losing 65 Pounds Post-Baby [VIDEO]
Beyoncé's videos off her recently released self-titled album have been extremely racy and sexual, featuring the R&B diva clad in a variety of skin-revealing outfits. In her latest mini art feature "Self-Titled Part 4: Liberation," Mrs. Carter reveals the reason behind the making of her sexually charged videos.
Queen Bey gave birth to her baby girl Blue Ivy almost two years ago. She reveals that after losing 65lbs post-pregnancy, she was inspired to strip off and flaunt her envious curves in her new videos.
"I was very aware of that fact that I was showing my body," she says. "I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back."
"I know that there's so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth. You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself," Beyoncé continues.
Yoncé has stripped off in several videos off her new album, particularly in "Partition," which features her dancing at a strip club. "I don't have any shame about being sexual. I'm not embarrassed about it, and I don't feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have," she adds.
The singer then explains the story behind the track, and why she has chosen to film the video at the Crazy Horse nightclub in Paris.
"The day that I got engaged was my husband's birthday, and I took him to Crazy Horse and I remember thinking, 'Damn, these girls are fly,'" she says. "I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show. I was like, 'I wish I was up there, I wish I could perform that for my man.' So that's what I did for the video."
