She did it! Beyonce, 32, reveals that after losing 65lb in weight after giving birth she wanted to show off her body in her sexy new video
Speaking in another documentary snippet about the album, Beyonce revealed: 'I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body,'
'I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back.'
