We, like most of the world, stan Beyoncé and all in her kingdom (queendom?) that she surveys so we were delighted that at this stage in the game, and with this much success and seemingly endless coverage of her life and power, Yonce is still finding ways to surprise us in unexpected ways.
In a new interview with Elle magazine, the superstar answered a series of fan questions for a profile that celebrated the release of her new IVY PARK collaboration with Adidas. The conversation gets into some serious topics, from motherhood and miscarriages to diversity and the importance of inclusion, but in an unexpected turn of events, Beyonce’s replies in the lightning round were not unlike those of a sweater-wearing suburban dad.
Need evidence? Well, her karaoke picks are a great start: “’Escape (The Piña Colada Song)’ and ‘Hotel California’ (the guitar solo is my jam)!!” We didn’t exactly think she’d sing her own songs, but The Eagles wouldn’t have been our first guess (or our hundredth, probably). Not that that’s a bad thing, of course because how much would you pay to hear Beyoncé sing the pina colada song in a dive bar? Our answer: a lot, especially if husband Jay-Z was ready to break in with a verse of his own.

Beyoncé also shared her favourite knock-knock joke and came in with some dad humour that she knew would irk her eldest daughter.
“What do you call a deer with no eyes? No idea. Get it? NO-EYED-DEER 😂 I’m so sorry. Blue is absolutely going to kill me for telling that terrible joke.”
She also revealed that her favourite cereal is granola with pecans. A delicious choice, sure, but one that our dads would totally make at 7a.m. while reading the local paper. Is it possible that Beyoncé owns a pair of comfortable house shoes and has a secret fixation with lawn care? We’re beginning to think the answer is yes.
All dad jokes aside, Beyoncé looked incredible modeling clothes from the IVY PARK x adidas collection, which is set to launch in January. Photographed wearing the gender-neutral items in everyday places like a laundromat, a hair salon and a bodega, the singer shines in low-key makeup and long braids. The brand first launched in 2016 and now, with Beyoncé as sole owner, its success is another example of the multihyphenate’s incredible style and star power.
So, is there anything else we need to know about the megastar mom of Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir? Well, she doesn’t care much for that constant pregnancy chatter. Asked if there’s a question she hates being asked, the star was blunt. “Are you pregnant? Get off my ovaries!”
