Beyoncé, Queen Bey, Is the Proud Owner of Literal Beehives
The Beyhive has never been buzzier, and by Beyhive I mean the literal hive of literal bees that lives on Beyoncé's roof.
Queen Bey, whose standom is collectively known as the Beyhive, revealed in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar that she's "found healing properties in honey that benefit me and my children" and is working on cultivating her own hemp and honey farm. "I've even got hives on my roof!" she exclaimed.
Honey isn't the only discovery that has worked its way into Bey's self-care routine. The multi-hyphenate opened up about coping with the stress half a lifetime of touring has had on her body (and mind).
"I've personally struggled with insomnia from touring for more than half of my life," she admitted. "Years of wear and tear on my muscles from dancing in heels. The stress on my hair and skin, from sprays and dyes to the heat of a curling iron and wearing heavy makeup while sweating on stage … I know that to give the best of me, I have to take care of myself and listen to my body."
Beyoncé also shared that she'd "spent too much time on diets" in the past "with the misconception that self-care meant exercising and being overly conscious of my body."
She's found that CBD aids with the muscle soreness and inflammation that often arise while on tour, and that it helps with her insomnia as well.
"During quarantine, I went from overindulgences to creating positive rituals drawing from past generations and putting my own spin on things," she said.
And despite her new focus on self-care, she's committed to giving back to her fans, too. "I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible," she said in regard to the events of the past year-and-a-half. To put it simply: "Yes, the music is coming!" Bzz. Bzzzzz.
