Beyonce’s newly released video has been described as one of her raunchiest ever. Not only did she show off her post baby bod,’ she stripped off in a couple of videos particularly in the video for Partition. Speaking in another documentary snippet about the album, she reveals why she took the plunge:
'I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body. I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back.
I know that there's so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth. You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself. I don't have any shame about being sexual. I'm not embarrassed about it and I don't feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have.'
The singer also explained why she chose to film Partition at the Crazy Horse nightclub where husband Jay took her after he proposed.
'The day that I got engaged was my husband's birthday, and I took him to Crazy Horse and I remember thinking 'Damn, these girls are fly,'
'I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show. I was like, "I wish I was up there, I wish I could perform that for my man." So that's what I did for the video.'
