Impending motherhood is definitely treating Beyoncé well. When the 30-year-old launched her third perfume, Pulse, in New York City, she couldn't stop gushing about how wonderful it is to be a woman.
"Everything that I always wanted is happening," the singer told OMG! "It happens in God's time, and I am happy it is happening now. It is the best time of my life."
Some of the few successes going on in her life include her House of Dereon fashion line in London, her platinum album, 4, the release of her third fragrance, and a bun in the oven with husband Jay-Z.
"The fact that I am a woman is such a gift. And I am about to give the biggest gift a human can ever have," she says. "I just feel so strong. It is like a miracle."
As for her latest fragrance, which has a warm mix of citrus gourmand, Madagascar vanilla and bluebird orchid, Beyoncé shared her source for inspiration — Hollywood.
"I just think about Elizabeth Taylor and all of the icons that I respect, and they have their own scent[s]. I think it is a part of being an icon," she said. "For me to be one of those women, I don't take it lightly."
"I believe all women have that sensuality and power within them, and hopefully this fragrance can enhance that, bring that out, and leave a lasting impression on everyone you pass by," Beyoncé said. "For me, [perfume] is the last accessory when I get ready. It makes me feel so confident."
Speaking of Hollywood legends, Bey will be teaming up with one in the upcoming year. She will be the leading lady in director Clint Eastwood's remake of the Barbara Streisand movie, A Star Is Born. Production will start next year, but Beyoncé has already began working on the soundtrack.
