Beyonce got a chance to sit down with Elle to explain the single. She says,

“I mean, I’m an artist and I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood, But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of the officers who sacrifice themselves to keeps us safe.”

She goes on to speak about her feelings on police brutality.

“Let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I’m proud of what we created and I’m proud to be part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way.”

Beyonce got a chance to speak on her new line, “Ivy Park,” and also whats in the works.

“I hope I can create art that helps people heal. Art that makes people feel proud of their struggle. Everyone experiences pain but sometimes you need to be uncomfortable to transform. Pain is not pretty—but I wasn’t able to hold my daughter in my arms until I experienced the pain of childbirth.”
