She wanted to follow in her footsteps...
US Weekly reports that after the screening of all seventeen videos from her visual self-titled album, Beyonce revealed that she was inspired by Madonna while putting it together. Here are highlights:
On how she was inspired by Madonna: "I felt like I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire."
On how she put it together: "I found a team of underdogs, a team of women, a team of people that no one believed in. And we worked together and we stayed up all night and we were progressive and we did not follow the rules and we said, ‘Why can't we do it?' and I don't think people believed, you know?"
On how she came up with the idea a while ago: "I said to so many people, 'I have an idea to do a visual album,' and everyone was like 'Ok'. And we did it! And not only did we do it, it's my company and I'm very proud of that."
