Beyonce is a famous perfectionist, but in a new interview with ELLE magazine she says she’d like to change the conversation surrounding that.

“It’s not about perfection. It’s about purpose,” she says in the May issue of the magazine, arriving on newsstands on April 6. “We have to care about our bodies and what we put in them. Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health — take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish. The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself.”

When it comes to her new athletic clothing line, Ivy Park, arriving in stores on April 14, Beyonce tells the fashion magazine that she wants to “celebrate every woman and the body she’s in while always striving to be better.”

The singer adds that she loves being her own boss: “It’s exciting, but having the power to make every final decision and being accountable for them is definitely a burden and a blessing,” she says

In related news, Beyonce and Jay Z are celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary today.  They were married April 4, 2008 inside Jay’s 13,500-square-foot penthouse in New York City.
