Quotes and Comments by Beyoncé Knowles
Even before I was 21, I was making adult decisions
and I had an adult job and I had adult responsibilities.
I guess the year I felt that I became a woman
was when I turned 18, because that was the year
before Survivor came out and I was forced to
mature when the lineup changed and I had a lot
of responsibilities. So now it's just a new
chapter as far as the solo album, but I feel
like I've been a woman for a while.
I loved being on the stage. I guess I was really
shy and I felt that I could express myself and
perform and do what was in my heart on the stage.
I felt comfortable on the stage.
I said, 'You know, I really don't care what
people think about me.' I've been really happy
with myself as a person ever since. And that
gets me in trouble sometimes.
know in life when I get this feeling, I always
say it--before Austin Powers I had this feeling;
before Survivor I had this feeling; after Destiny's
Child, after we saw and met Michelle I had this
feeling--that feeling when you fall in love.
You have this feeling, just that feeling that
something great is going to happen, and that
nervousness is a great sign.
