Beyoncé - Beyoncé wants to enjoy life

Beyoncé is determined to enjoy her life more.

The 'Pretty Hurts' hitmaker feels like she wasted a lot of youth working too hard and she is much happier spending time with her rapper husband, Jay Z, and their 23-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy.

In the second instalment of her 'mini-art feature' video series, titled 'Self-titled Part 2: Imperfection,' that gives a glimpse into the making of her new album, 'Beyoncé,' the 32-year-old star said: ''I have a lot of awards and I have a lot of these things that are amazing and I worked my ass off, I worked harder than probably everybody I know to get those things but nothing feels like my child singing 'mummy'. No, nothing feels like when I look my husband in the eyes, nothing feels like when I'm respected, when I get on the stage and I see I'm changing peoples' lives. Those are the things that matter and at this point in my life that's what I'm striving for - growth, love, happiness, fun. Enjoy your life, it's short. That's the message.''

The former Destiny's Child star also confessed that she is not sure if the sacrifices she made to make her childhood dream a reality were worth it.

The 'Bow Down' singer explained: ''I had this image of this trophy and me accepting these awards and kind of training myself to be a champion and at the end of the day when you go through all of these things, is it worth it?

''I mean, you get this trophy and you're like, 'I basically starved, I have neglected all the people that I love, I've conformed to what everybody else thinks I should be and I have this trophy. What does that mean?

''The trophy represents all of the sacrifices I made as a kid, all of the time that I lost being on the road, in the studios as a child.''

She added: ''I just want to throw that s**t up!''
