After Jay Z proposed to Beyoncé on his birthday, she celebrated by taking him to a strip club. This would later inspire the music video for her song, 'Partition'.
After saying yes, Beyoncé celebrated Jay Z's proposal to her with a trip to a strip club. Despite being notoriously secretive in regards to her relationship with the '99 Problems' rapper - going as far as to not confirm their 2008 secret wedding - the 'XO' hitmaker has now revealed that Jay Z proposed to her on his birthday; 4th December, 2007. Their secret ceremony took place in New York City in April of the following year.
The new music video for 32-year-old Beyoncé's 'Partition' was inspired by their celebratory trip to the Crazy Horse cabaret club after his proposal. 'Liberation', the fourth YouTube video in a series about the music and videos of Beyoncé, the singer reveals: ''The day that I got engaged was my husband's birthday, and I took him to Crazy Horse and I remember thinking 'Damn, these girls are fly.' I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show. I was like, 'I wish I was up there, I wish I could perform that for my man.' So that's what I did for the video.''
Beyoncé recently released her self-titled fifth solo album unannounced on iTunes to huge success, selling around 829,000 copies in three days. She is now intent on showing the world that, despite being a mother, she is still both fun and sexy. The former Destiny's Child singer has revealed that since the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy (who is two-years-old on 7th January, 2014), she has been able to slim down to 130 lbs.
She stated: ''Just because you become a mother it doesn't mean you lose who you are. I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body. I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back.''
