The ‘Single Ladies’ singer kept her nuptials to rapper Jay-Z secret because
she wanted to “cherish” the commitment of marriage rather than the big day
She said: “I think that people can put way too much emphasis on the day.
It’s just so temporary and it goes away in a second. And then you have this
commitment you made, and I don’t know if people cherish it as much as they
Beyonce - who married Jay-Z in a secret ceremony last April - admits she has
always been a private person and never wanted an elaborate wedding.
She explained to Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine: “I’ve never been the girl
who went to a wedding and thought, ‘Oooh, I want to get married.’ So I
didn’t want something big and dramatic. That doesn’t mean it was
anticlimactic or anything, but I think it’s good to be somebody who thinks
about the reality of things.”
