London, Aug 17, Singer Beyonce Knowles has revealed that her feminist values have helped her have successful relationships with men.
The “Halo” singer – who is married to hip-hop superstar Jay-Z – says she’s always had good friendships with females and thinks that has played a big part in her never falling for the wrong type of man, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I think I am a feminist in a way. It’s not something I consciously decided I was going to be; perhaps it’s because I grew up in a singing group with other women, and that was so helpful to me. It kept me out of so much trouble and out of bad relationships,” she said.
“My friendships with my girls are just so much a part of me that there are things I am never going to do that would upset that bond. I never want to betray that friendship because I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women. I think we learn a lot from our female friends – female friendship is very, very important,” she added.
