Earlier this month during a Q&A with ELLE magazine, Beyonce opened up about how she deals with public scrutiny of her physical appearance as well as weight fluctuations she's experienced since having children.

"If someone told me 15 years ago that my body would go through so many changes and fluctuations, and that I would feel more womanly and secure with my curves, I would not have believed them," she said.

"But children and maturity have taught me to value myself beyond my physical appearance and really understand that I am more than enough no matter what stage I'm at in life," she continued. "Giving zero [swearing emoji]s is the most liberating place to be. Also knowing true beauty is something you cannot see. I wish more people focused on discovering the beauty within themselves rather than critiquing other folks' grills."
