Beyonce: “I Wish I was Born Latina.”

Beyonce caught a case of the butt-kissies in a recent interview with LATINA MAGAZINE. For those of you who are not in the know, she has an all-new Spanish EP out, entitled Irreemplazable, and she recently sat down to talk with Latina Magazine about it, among other things. Here’s a snippet of the interview.

Latina: How did you learn to sing in Spanish?

Beyonce: I only took classes for a few years in middle school, when you learn to say things like, “Where’s the bathroom?” But, even that helped me with my pronunciation when I got in the studio. I still get a little nervous when I have to do it live, but I’m getting pretty good at it, especially when it has a melody attached to it. I take a lot of time and focus because I want to do it right. I go through everything with Rudy Perez who rewrote my songs in Spanish–he is so incredible and he completely gets it. So I don’t have to correct anything because he’s right on it all the time. Then I learn each line phonetically, how I would say it. It’s hard–my songs are hard enough to sing in English!

Latina: What’s one thing that you’d like to tell your Latina fans?

Beyonce: I would thank them for embracing me. I did radio (promotions) this morning for hours and hours and I noticed a big difference between speaking to all of the Latino stations and speaking to the pop stations or the other stations. With the Latino stations, there was so much love and everyone is so genuine. I’M JUST JEALOUS THAT I WASN’T BORN LATINA. I WISH I HAD BEEN BECAUSE THE CULTURE IS SO BEAUTIFUL. I’m very grateful Latinos are embracing me.

Wow, I wonder if she REALLY said that or if they just flip-flopped her words. Anyhow, sometimes she should just do what she was meant to do … and that’s sit there and look cute. With her fine ass…
