Quarantining and chilling have meant that Queen B has loosened the shackles on her strenuous workout and eating plan and seemingly packed on some weight. Not that she cares.
Speaking candidly about her body image after having twins Rumi and Sir in 2017, Beyoncé admitted to feeling more secure with her curves.
“Children and maturity have taught me to value myself beyond my physical appearance and really understand that I am more than enough no matter what stage I’m at in life,” she told ELLE magazine in 2019.
Internet trolls, who have the star under a constant microscope, estimate that her quarantine weight gain is over 90kgs. About 25kgs heavier than her usual 65kg frame.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Bey was always on tour with rigorous stage performances that meant she spent hours rehearsing the strenuous dance routines. When on tour the ‘Brown Skin Girl’ singer sticks to a strict vegan diet plan.
Her fluctuating weight over the years left the star vulnerable and in her Netflix documentary, she spoke about never putting her body through an extreme diet and exercise regime again.
Unphased by her weight gain, the singer put all her energy into relaunching her Ivy Park athleisure brand with Adidas.
