Beyoncé is speaking out about her pregnancy and her decision to postpone motherhood until she’d achieved certain personal goals.

“It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother,” the former Destiny’s Child singer turned superstar told Bazaar. “Now God has blessed us with the ultimate.”

She also opens up about her marriage to Jay-Z after being tight-lipped about their open-secret relationship both before and after the wedding.

“We focused three years on our marriage and found that it brought us an even stronger bond and connection,” the “Single Ladies” singer said.

“But like anything great and successful in your life, marriage takes hard work and sacrifice. It has to be something both you and your husband deeply want.”

“The best thing about marriage is the amount of growth you have because you can no longer hide from your fears and insecurities,” the queen B says. “There’s someone right there calling you out on your flaws and building you up when you need the support. If you are with the right person, it brings out the best version of you.”

Why do we think Beyoncé is going to release an inspirational self-help book once she gives birth? After all, it’s not like the uber-multitasker has enough projects to juggle.

Aniston’s Anger

Jennifer Aniston has a reputation for being down-to-earth — but she confesses that she once had a diva moment on set.

“I threw a chair at a director. It wasn’t my proudest moment,” the former “Friends” star tells Elle.

But wait, her temper tantrum was justified — Jen says she was just sticking up for someone.

“He was treating a script supervisor horribly,” she says. “When the director walked in, I threw a chair at him.”

“I missed, of course,” the actress says. “I was like, ‘You can’t speak to people like that.’ I can’t tolerate it.”

Leave it to Jennifer Aniston to make throwing a chair at someone seem like a good deed.

Bethenny’s Mom Dishes

Bethenny Frankel’s mother predicts that the reality star’s marriage will end in divorce ... but is she being insightful or just bitter?

“Right now, he is a good father, but soon she won’t need him and she will dump him,” Bernadette Birk said of son-in-law Jason Hoppy to Star.

“Her husband seems like a really nice guy, but it won’t last,” she added. “He is really too weak for her.”

But wait just a minute — the former “Real Housewife of New York” has only talked to her mom (who also claims to have come up with the Skinnygirl margarita concept Bethenny has parlayed into millions of dollars) twice in the past 10 years. So, is she really concerned about her daughter, or just trying to milk her for publicity?

Bernadette, if you’re single, we’d like to introduce you to a great guy named Michael Lohan.
