In an interview with Australia's "Sunday Night," Beyonce opened up on her pregnancy, her career and where she finds inspiration for her dance moves.
The host of the program let it slip that Beyonce is due in February, and the "Countdown" singer said she's definitely ready.
"My husband and I have been together for 10 years, all of my 20s, since I was 20, and I just feel like it's time," she said. "I'm very grateful that God has blessed me with the biggest gift any human being can have. And I think because I've accomplished a lot of things for myself and I really know who I am...if there was any time, right now is the time. I'm so happy."
In an interesting bit of timing, she also speaks on how she develops dance concepts for her videos. Some of the moves in the latest, "Countdown," have been called into question for allegedly plagiarizing the work of Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, according to the Guardian.
The video's director, Adria Petty, did tell MTV that she and Beyonce viewed some German modern dance clips as they were exploring cultural reference points.
As the Guardian reports, this isn't the first time the source of the singer's dancing has been called into question - the same thing happened with her performance of "Run the World (Girls)" at the Billboard Music Awards in May. Beyonce told AOL Music at the time that she was very much inspired by a similar performance Italian singer Lorella Cuccarini did in 2010.
In her interview with "Sunday Night," the 30-year-old superstar sums up her love of movement thusly: "I'm a huge fan of dance, and I always try to think of a new way to move the body. I treat choreography like I do a hit song, and I try to think of things that are going to make people want to dance, and move around in the club."
