Beyoncé speaks on that controversial Cuba trip

Beyoncé's husband Jay-Z has said his piece about the couple's controversial April trip to Cuba, and even President Obama has weighed in. (You know, he's got 99 problems and now Jay-Z's one.)

But, in the midst of her world tour, Queen Bey's pressed pause on the performances to speak up about the wedding anniversary vacay that turned into a political storm.

"It was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children," the pop star said in an interview with ABC News Monday. "I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country."

Lately, it's Beyoncé's daughter Blue Ivy who's getting the global education. The singer's firstborn has accompanied her on tour stops in Paris, France, and one day Bey hopes that Blue won't be the only Knowles-Carter kid in tow.

“I would like more children,” the 31-year-old said. “I think my daughter needs some company."

For now, she'll just have to make do with her dear old dad.

    Yeah, just as long you're truthful about it and not wear prosthetic tummy again. There's nothing wrong with admitting that you use a surrogate or gestational carrier to have your baby as there are millions of women who have done it for one reason or another.

    What a stupid TW#T this Bouncie is???!!! Does she not read her history or realise that traveling to Cuba is proscribed my the American government? Oh, that's right.....she's an Obama supporter and, therefore is above the law.

      Hmm, the American government tellingtheir people they aren't allowed to travel to certain countries? Sounds a lot like communism! Cuba also tells their residents what countries thy can travel too!

    Stop using the word "vacay" as if it's the same as "vacation." Just say "vacation" and quit trying to be cute on the level of some kindergartener! Beyonce can travel anywhere she wants. Anywhere she wants as long as I'm there!

    • Beyonce and Jay Z are stable

      that is why they get along so well and can travel together.
