Beyonce took a minute out of her busy tour schedule and sat down with ABC’s Good Morning America not too long ago. In the short and sweet one-on-one interview, the 31 year-old entertainer talked about her role as Queen in the upcoming animated film, Epic, which she said was an emotional experience:
I was so honored when they asked me to do this role, and I was actually pregnant at the time. I thought, you know, by the time this comes out, my daughter will understand it’s my voice and what an incredible, ‘cool point’. It’s such a beautiful role and it has so much depth. It’s so emotional and I literally… I was crying when I did the voice over and it was the first thing I did after giving birth. There’s scene where I pick the pod and literally there were tears falling. It was like I imagined seeing her for the first time. It was really emotional, and a perfect first job for me.
And of course her controversial trip to Cuba became a topic of discussion and the Houston-native summed it up by saying:
It was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children. Visited some incredible entrepreneurs. I learned so much about so many people, and the country. It was actually quite shocking.
