Beyoncé’s got a lot on her plate these days, but she making room for a few more things—including her own record label.
Fantastic career? Check. Wonderful marriage? Check. Baby bump? Check! While most women would be happy having it all (and legions of adoring fans), Bey still wants to achieve a bit more. But what’s first on her list?
"Balance. I am still working on balance and still growing," she told the Associated Press, revealing that she’s got aspirations to help launch the careers of other young performers. "I am starting my company, my label. I want to create a boy band. I want to continue to produce and do documentaries and music videos."
The "Til The End of Time" diva said she’s really itching to do some more hands-on work behind the scenes as well. "I eventually want to start directing for other artists. Once I know that I have my stuff together and I trust that, I can do it for other artists," she said.
From the sound of it, Beyoncé has really taken her song "Who Run The World (Girls)" to heart as she expands her empire. But it’s not all about her; she’s hoping that her next career move will actually continue the trend of ambitious artists who have a head for business.
"I see so many male artists building these empires and passing their knowledge on to other artists and development," Bey explained. "I see myself doing the same thing, and hopefully other younger artists, when they grow up and they have been around for 15, 20 years, they can do the same thing."
Of course, with a baby on the way, she’s venturing into new territory. She may be an amazing aunt, but she’s got a thing or two to learn about being a mom. Fortunately for her, she’s got a few old pros to help her out.
"I have the best examples around me because my sister is the most incredible mother. My mother, I am so proud of her," Beyoncé told AP. "I see her and I could cry every time I think about her because she is such an incredible woman, so I just pray that I have the same bond with my children—child."
The singer’s employees and entourage should probably get used to seeing Beyoncé in mommy mode at work. She plans to keep her bundle of joy with her at all times no matter what her schedule may hold.
"Yes, I will probably be that way. I am sure I will. I think that it shouldn’t stop you," she said. "I think of course my life is going to change, and I definitely will make sacrifices, but, you know, I think I will be able to bring hopefully my little rider with me."
