Beyoncé Celebrated the Conclusion of an Exhausting World Tour With a Life-Altering Vacation

Celebrity drama always peaks one’s interest and keeps fans following headlines to discover the inside scoop. Beyoncé has been one of these celebrities, being at the center of many of these headlines throughout her career. From family drama to rumors about her and Jay-Z, and the announcement of her pregnancy with Blue Ivy it has all been in the headlines.

Being a hugely successful singer and wearing the Queen Bey crown, it’s no surprise that Beyoncé stays in the headlines, whether it’s about celebrating her success or reporters stirring up the latest drama.

Continue reading to find out the details behind how Beyoncé handled the drama that unfolded with her father and how a world-vacation alone with her man was the relaxation needed to come back with a new outlook on her life. 

Who is Sasha Fierce?

For those Queen Bey fans who need a refresher, Sasha Fierce was Beyoncé’s alter ego. During an interview with Oprah, she discussed how she switched to Sasha when she’s getting ready to perform to adoring fans, as it gives her the confidence needed to make it through the show.

It is this transformation that helped her put on such awe-inspiring live performances. Sasha was bold, more sensual, and, well, fierce!

Beyonce leaves Sasha Fierce behind

The one thing that triggered Beyoncé to kill Sasha Fierce, as she described it in 2010 to an interviewer for Allure, was her mom, Tina Knowles. As you may remember Beyoncé was named Billboard’s woman of the year in 2009, and she invited her parents to the award ceremony.

Things were feeling like a perfect family moment as her parents watched proudly beaming as she gave her acceptance speech. However, at the end of the show, Mathew was surprised with paternity papers. This lets the cat out of the bag about his secret affair with a Canadian actress and Beyoncé’s to-be half-sibling. Tina then sent divorce papers to Mathew the very next month. Tina’s brave move of standing up to her dad and manager, Mathew Knowles, was the moment of clarity for Beyoncé. 

Her mom’s courage is what made Beyoncé realize that she did not need to hide behind Sasha Fierce any longer. All the characteristics of Sasha, Beyoncé already had in herself.

A much-needed vacation

After a world-tour, many artists want to relax at home. However, Beyoncé did the complete opposite by going on vacation with Jay-Z around the world. She felt she and Jay needed time alone, out of the spotlight, and what a better way than taking a trip around the globe.

This vacation is just what Beyonce needed to recharge and focus on what really mattered, relationships with her family.

Father drama put to rest

While Beyoncé and her father had been through rough patches, she understood that he will always be her father and didn’t want to ruin that special bond. After returning from her world vacation, Beyonce hires a law firm to do an official audit of Mathew to determine if he was stealing some of her tour money.

The audit proved he was guilty, but he continued to deny the accusations. Beyoncé knew she did not want him out of her life completely, but as a businesswoman, she knew that it was best for them to part ways on a business level.
