Color on the Cover: Beyoncé Says Marriage to Jay-Z is a ‘Power Struggle’

Fronting the December issue of Elle, Beyoncé Knowles says being married to hip hop mogul Jay-Z is “a power struggle.”

“But if I didn’t respect someone and they didn’t have that strength, then I would be bored,” the 27-year-old beauty told the fashion mag. “I wouldn’t be attracted to them.”

And just as long as it took her to nab her beau to wedlock, it seems making mini-mes will take just as long.

“I’m terrified of having a child,” Knowles said. “No way! I’m terrified of delivering a child because I saw my nephew being born. That traumatized me. I’m only 27. I’ve got time.”

“It’s none of your business,” NeNe snapped in an email to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, insisting that she and her husband are “financial able [sic] and stable to live where ever we feel fits.”
