Beyoncé is on the cover of Elle this week promoting her new fitness line and, unsurprisingly, the evolving landscape of women’s beauty. In a preview for the cover story released by Elle, Beyoncé talks about the pressure to be perfect and how she wants to change the conversation. “It’s not about perfection. It’s about purpose. We have to care about our bodies and what we put in them. Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health — take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish,” she said. It’s comforting to know that even Beyoncé feels the stress of striving for perfection.

Beyoncé has always been a proponent of empowering women, and this interview only emphasizes her position. For those wondering why she launched a fitness line, Beyoncé said it was all about celebrating women and the bodies we’re in — while striving to be better. We can’t wait to read the full interview when it’s published tomorrow.
