Beyonce Talks Jay-Z With Oprah Winfrey

Beyoncé Dishes On Jay-Z: ‘I would Not Be The Woman I Am If I Did Not Go Home To That Man’ [Video]

Beyoncé may have songs to her name that triumph in being an “Independent Woman” who can pay her “Bills, Bills, Bills,” but she’s also a woman deeply in love with her husband Jay-Z.

With just hours to go before Beyoncé beams into households across America that choose to tune to Oprah’sNext Chapter and the singer’s much hyped, co-directed “Life Is But A Dream” documentary, two previews of Winfrey’s chat with the Houston native have arrived online.

In both, the 31-year-old opens up about her life with Jay-Z, also known as Jay Shawn-Carter, rapper and Roc Nation co-head. He and Beyoncé reportedly dated for seven years before marrying on April 4, 2008, and according to the “Crazy in Love” songstress, Jay-Z is the wind beneath her wings.

“You balance being the fierce woman with obviously a woman who adores and loves her man,” Winfrey tells Beyoncé in the clip below. To which, the singer sitting on the sofa beside her says:

“Absolutely. I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man. It gives me such a foundation.”

Elaborating, the superstar says the year-and-half-long friendship between her and Jay-Z is the reason their eventual intimate relationship is so grounded, said The Hollywood Reporter.

“That foundation is so important in a relationship,” the singer said, “and just to have someone that you just like, you know, is so important and someone that is honest.”
