Ring The Alarm: Beyonce’s Taking A Break
After unleashing eight (!) singles off I Am… Sasha Fierce, touring the globe, earning an impressive 10 Grammy nods, pairing up with Lady Gaga twice, navigating through a sticky MTV VMAs situation and ringing in the new year at a private party with at least one notoriously controversial attendee, Beyonce has decided it’s time to have a little diva downtime in 2010.
“It’s definitely time to take a break, to recharge my batteries,” Beyonce told USA Today. “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.”
Gosh, was it those Destiny’s Child song leaks from last week that finally pushed the 28-year-old to take a vacation?
Beyonce continued on, telling the paper, “I’ve always worked hard, but I feel like I worked harder this past year than I have since I was just starting out. I just had all these great opportunities… I visited the pyramids in Egypt. I saw the Great Wall of China and went out in the middle of the ocean in Australia to see the whales. I actually got sprayed in the face. I made some great memories this year and really learned to enjoy life.”
At the very least, Beyonce should be able to rack up a little quality family time. Her mom could probably use it.
