Singer Beyonce is an inspiration to women across the globe. Talented, beautiful and kind, Beyonce has achieved great success since her first days as part of Destiny’s Child.
Now a solo star in her own right, it seems there’s nothing she can’t achieve.
And that’s certainly true when it comes to her hobbies. In a recent interview with British Vogue, Beyonce revealed that she has a fondness for... beekeeping. Yes, really!
Given her fanbase refer to themselves as the ‘Beyhive’, this new revelation couldn’t be more appropriate.

WHAT IS BEYONCE'S UNUSUAL HOBBY?
The singer told the publication that she was keeping bees at home.
“I know it’s random,” she acknowledged. “But I have two beehives. Real ones.”
Beyonce went on to reveal: “I’ve had them at my house for a while now. I have around 80,000 bees and we make hundreds of jars of honey a year.”
Despite the seemingly “random” nature of this hobby, the singer explained the inspiration that led her to keep these resourceful insects.
She said: “I started the beehives because my daughters, Blue and Rumi, both have terrible allergies, and honey has countless healing properties.”

The singer also talked more about her eldest daughter, Blue. She also revealed her advice for parents who want to talk to their children about current events. Beyonce said that she’s “very smart, and she is aware that there is a shift, but it is my job as a parent to do my best to keep her world as positive and safe as can be for an eight-year-old.”
She revealed: “My best advice is to love them harder than ever. I let my children know that they are never too young to contribute to changing the world. I never underestimate their thoughts and feelings, and I check in with them to understand how this is affecting them.
“I believe the best way to teach them is to be the example.”
The singer’s interview with British Vogue appeared just weeks after the trailer for Beyonce’s latest collection for her Ivy Park x adidas sportswear collaboration was released.
When asked what makes her most proud, Beyonce replied: “Owning my films, clothing lines, and masters is important to me. Your songs, your image and the way you conduct business do not have to be created from a commercial point of view, or a male point of view. You can decide what success looks like for yourself.”
She concluded: “Being number one does not mean better quality. And commercial success certainly doesn’t equate to being impactful. Cultural currency is invaluable."
