Even queens have guilty pleasures, and Queen Bey definitely has hers. As she told InStyle in an interview in 2011, her tastes are not actually that different from ordinary beings such as ourselves. We know her as a workaholic who never takes a break from entertaining us, and she definitely lives up to it, but when she has some free time, she actually loves lazing around. “In my free time, I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV.” We’re with you, sister! Despite what your friends may say, not all TV time has to be devoted to an acclaimed, award-winning show either, and Beyonce’s certainly is not. “I have to confess,“ she revealed, “that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore.”
It may come as a surprise to see such a great artist having low brow taste, but when you consider that she is out there day after day rehearsing, recording, performing, traveling, working out, doing interviews, acting, posing, and being an all-out boss lady, you have to cut her some slack to watch some shameless reality television. Beyonce decided to take a break back then to give her some me-time, and she discussed the need for it, saying, “I had to turn down great things. I did it for my sanity, my life, my relationships, my nephew, my husband, my sister, and my friendships.” She continued, saying, “I deserved to give myself time to focus on things besides performing, filming, and recording.” She deserves any breaks she gives herself, and any trashy television she just wants to laze back and watch. She earned it!
