Beyoncé Says This Is the Only Way She’s Able To Relax, and It’s Super Luxurious

Beyoncé is one of the most successful musicians in the world. She’s been a pop icon ever since she rose to fame as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child and continues to maintain her incredible wealth and stardom by releasing hit songs, headlining popular events, and just being the Queen Bey everyone knows her as.

Given her popularity, it goes without saying that Bey is always extremely busy. So much so, that she hardly ever has time to just sit back and relax. But when she does, Bey likes to unwind by doing this luxurious activity.

Beyoncé was set on a path to fame at a young age

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Beyoncé kicked off her career as a musical artist at a young age. After her parents recognized her talent for singing and dancing, Bey began participating in local talent shows and performances before she was even a preteen.

By the time she was 10, Bey was competing in national singing competitions with her girl group, Girls Tyme. Eventually, the group changed their name to Destiny’s Child and in the late ’90s, they found themselves skyrocketing to fame and cementing themselves in the music scene.

Though Destiny’s Child achieved mega-success and became one of the best-selling girl groups of all time, the group announced a hiatus in 2001 to further pursue solo careers.

It wasn’t long after that Beyoncé got to work on her first solo album and began evolving into the trailblazing musical artist she’s known as today.

Beyoncé has been deemed one of the hardest working women in showbusiness

Since releasing her debut solo album, Dangerously In Love, Beyoncé has barely paused for breath as she’s continued dropping hit after hit as well as history-making records. And because she hasn’t stopped working hard, Beyoncé’s fame has done nothing but soar to new heights.

Over the years, the singer’s continued to break sales records, top the Billboard charts, sell-out stadium tours, and nail public appearances. Today, Bey is known as one of the best-selling music artists in the world and the highest-earning black musician in history with a $400 million net worth to her name.

In addition to these titles, Beyoncé has also been deemed the hardest-working woman in show business as she has only increased her power in the music industry with her hit songs, ground-breaking performances, and her cultural impact.

When she’s not working, Beyoncé has to force herself to relax

Since she’s always on the go performing sold-out concerts and recording new music, one would expect that Beyoncé looks forward to taking breaks from work and just relaxing.

Though she has been spotted unwinding on vacation with her family a few times over the years, it turns out that getting the “Halo” singer to relax actually isn’t as easy as it seems.

While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2008, Bey revealed she’s incapable of relaxing and has to force herself to take a breather every once in a while.

“I don’t know how to relax,” she confessed to the talk show host.

The Grammy winner went on to share that the only way she’s able to relax is if she is confined to a boat — or in other words, a luxury yacht which she and husband Jay-Z regularly charter.

“The only time I can really relax is on a boat because then I have no excuse, I’m stuck. I can’t escape,” she added.

While Beyoncé and her family usually fly out to exotic locations to unwind and spend time together, the famous bunch has been spotted aboard luxurious multi-million yachts a few times in the past.

Bey and Jay are known for renting a 213-foot vessel, which is complete with 8 staterooms, a 28 person crew, and a fully stocked bar on board. It also includes a large swimming pool and jacuzzi, a movie theatre, spa, an outdoor fireplace, and a winter garden deck space. 

With all that luxurious yachts have to offer, it’s no wonder Beyoncé considers it her ideal place to unwind whenever she has a break from work.
