The singer writers a text in the first person talking about the difficulties she lived and how she managed to overcome them

"I looked into my ancestry recently and discovered that I come from a slave owner who fell in love and married a slave," singer Beyoncé revealed in a text published in the Vogue magazine . "I had to process that information for a while. I wondered what that meant and tried to put it all in perspective. I believe now that this is why God has blessed me with my twins. Positive energy and negative energy could coexist and grow in my blood for the first time. I pray that I can break the curses of my family and that my children have less complicated lives. "

The 36-year-old singer, mother of 6-year-old Blue Ivy, and the year-old twins, Rumi and Sir, explains that there are a number of "destroyed man-woman relationships" in her family, as well as "abuse of power and lack of trust." "It was only when I could see this clearly that I was able to resolve the conflicts in my own relationship," she said, referring to the problems she had with her husband, musician Jay-Z.
