On Tuesday (August 14), Vogue released behind-the-scenes footage of the "BOSS" singer's September cover shoot. The retro-inspired video, which is set to Curtis Mayfield’s “The Makings of You," featured Bey trying on different ethereal looks, braiding her hair, and goofing around on set. However, all eyes were Bey's daughter Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir Carter, when they each made brief cameos in the three-minute clip.
One of the most memorable moments came when Blue, who's just six-years-old, took control of the camera, telling the crew: “I’m gonna zoom in for you guys, OK?” Another was when Blue adorably held and kissed one of her siblings.
In the September Issue, Bey opened up about her big dreams for her children.
"My mother taught me the importance not just of being seen but of seeing myself. As the mother of two girls, it’s important to me that they see themselves too—in books, films, and on runways," she wrote in an unusually raw and candid essay for the issue. "It’s important to me that they see themselves as CEOs, as bosses, and that they know they can write the script for their own lives—that they can speak their minds and they have no ceiling."
"They don’t have to be a certain type or fit into a specific category," she continued. "They don’t have to be politically correct, as long as they’re authentic, respectful, compassionate, and empathetic. They can explore any religion, fall in love with any race, and love who they want to love."
When it comes to her only son, Beyonce also expressed her desire for him to remain strong in who he is.
"I want the same things for my son. I want him to know that he can be strong and brave but that he can also be sensitive and kind. I want my son to have a high emotional IQ where he is free to be caring, truthful, and honest," she wrote. "It’s everything a woman wants in a man, and yet we don’t teach it to our boys. I hope to teach my son not to fall victim to what the internet says he should be or how he should love. I want to create better representations for him so he is allowed to reach his full potential as a man, and to teach him that the real magic he possesses in the world is the power to affirm his own existence."
