In another exclusive clip just released by Harpo Studios, Beyonce candidly speaks with Oprah about her relationship with rapper turned mogul Jay-Z. Calling him her foundation, she expresses that they were friends first before they even went on a date.
BEYONCE I would not be the woman I am, if I did not go home to that man. And it just gives me such a foundation.
OPRAH: How has he helped you?
BEYONCE: On so many levels. We were friends first, for a year and half. Before we went on any date, on the phone for a year and a half. And that foundation is so important in a relationship. And just to have someone that you just like, is so important. And someone that is honest.
