Beyoncé had an intense 2009 and is pretty burned out as a result. You’d be tired too if you had an 11-month touring schedule, were upstaged by your male “Single Ladies” dancers on SNL, performed for Barack Obama‘s inauguration, and had to allow Taylor Swift to finish her VMA acceptance speech all in one calendar year. Now that it’s 2010, Ms. Knowles is taking some much-needed time off.
Beyoncé has confirmed that once her I am... world tour ends next month, she’ll be taking some “me” time, explaining “It’s definitely time to take a break, to recharge my batteries. I’d like to take about six months and not go into the studio. I need to just live life, to be inspired by things again. I’m going to do random things. I want to go to restaurants, maybe take a class and see some movies and Broadway shows.” And maybe get pregnant? Because seriously, the spawn of Beyoncé and Jay-Z would probably be the most musically-gifted child ever.
