Beyoncé: “Ever since I was a little girl, my legs have been curvy and pretty muscular, but my arms have always been really skinny. They were so weak, I could barely hold a mic. But now I can do push-ups! Ten at a time! ...To me, it’s sexier when it doesn’t look like you go to the gym. If you look like you’ve been spending a lot of time in the gym, then it just looks like you spend a lot of time in the gym. So I never want to get to that point where it’s not natural. I think it’s important to feel like a woman, as well as look like a woman ... I’m not one of those people who doesn’t have to work at it. I can’t eat what I want, and I can’t not go to the gym. I feel best when I’m not really thin and not really heavy, like now, when I’m still curvy. I really believe that everyone is supposed to be different, and whatever is a natural weight for you is usually what looks best.” [Self]
