Think Beyonce’s life is always utterly perfect? Think again. She may be a goddess on the stage but she is a mortal like the rest of us. And one thing that all us humans must endure at some point in our lives is some form of tragedy.
“Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you’d disappear/But nah baby you magic,” these were words that Jay-Z rapped about the baby he and Beyonce had lost. Beyonce had never spoken about the tragedy, until now.
“About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time. And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life,” the singer confided in the new HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream.
“I envisioned what my child would look like … I was feeling very maternal,” she said in the documentary. But during a check-up they found that there was no heartbeat. To deal with the loss of her baby she did what she knows how to do, she sang about it.
“I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life … And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through,” she explained.
“Being pregnant was very much like falling in love. You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone,” she said.
But there is happy ending. Beyonce was able to get pregnant again and deliver a healthy baby, baby Blue Ivy. Don’t you love happy endings?
