Queen Bey made history and broke records when she self-released her album on Dec. 12, 2013 and to celebrate the anniversary, she's giving us a present: a short film titled Yours and Mine.
The eleven-and-a-half minute black and white film features a montage of her music video clips as she drops some knowledge on us.
Listen, we know she makes being a celebrity look fun, effortless and easy, but don't get it twisted: the struggle is real.
"When you're famous, no one looks at you as a human anymore," the 33-year-old "XO" singer explains. "You become the property of the public. There's nothing real about it."
Jay Z's wife also says that feminism is not a bad word. "I always considered myself a feminist, although I was always afraid of that word because people put so much on it. When honestly, it's very simple: it's just a person that believes in equality for men and women."
