Here are some of the highlights from the interview:

On encouraging her children to take risks:
“In my case, I’ve borne these two kids into a particularly strange circumstance. They are going to have to fend off a lot and protect themselves from a lot of projections and prejudice about who they are, coming from the family that they come from. My daughter is super ballsy. I always follow her lead. I actually don’t need to encourage her to take risks. She likes to push herself; she wants to see how far she can get. It’s really inspiring to see that in a young woman.”

On why all women are amazing by 40:
“If you haven’t taken all of life’s incredible knocks and disappointments and used them to become a fully integrated, self-expressing person by the time you’re 40, then what can I tell you?”

On being able to go out in public:
“I’ve learned to navigate it. If I’m somewhere where there are a lot of tourists, then I’m 
asking for it. But if I go to the market or I’m back-to-school shopping with my kids, it’s not a problem. Some people ask for pictures, but it’s completely fine. I’m able to be a normal mom for the most part. I’m in [clothing store] Brandy Melville like all the other moms.”

On what Beyoncé is really like:
“If you met her and you didn’t know who she was or what she did, it would be inconceivable to you that she was Beyoncé. Some really famous people, even when they’re off-duty, have this energy that is sort of overpowering. She does not have that. She is so dialed down. She’s the sweetest mother. She’s very shy. You would not believe she is Beyoncé Knowles. You would be like, ‘No, that was not her.’ And that’s why when I see her perform, I’m like, ‘Oh, shit, I forgot.'”
