Beyonce Wants To Change The Conversation About Beauty

(Radio.com) In a rare interview, Beyonce spoke with Elle Magazine about the limiting beauty standards women face, and how she wants to change things. Elle's issue featuring Beyonce will be available digitally on April 5th and on newsstands April 6th.

Beyonce, whose strong, athletic figure has often been compared to the thin standards the entertainment industry projects on girls and women alike, believes it's time for a change, and that change begins with a more honest dialogue.

"It's really about changing the conversation," she said. "It's not about perfection. It's about purpose. We have to care about our bodies and what we put in them.

"Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health--take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish. The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself." Read more here.
