Despite tons of political backlash over their trip to Cuba last month, the hip-hop power couple, who celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary while there, received clearance to visit the country under strict conditions. However, Mrs. Carter expressed she was “quite shocked” by the widespread outcry against their stay. “You know, it was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really, it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country, and it was actually quite shocking.”
But what’s just as shocking is the touring performers first animated role. In Epic, a fantasy feature about good vs. evil, Blue Ivy’s mama plays a Mother Nature type of character, Queen Tara.
“You know, I was so honored when they asked for me to do this role. And I was actually pregnant at the time. And I thought, ‘You know, by the time this comes out my daughter will … understand it’s my voice and what an incredible, cool point,’” she said, laughing. “It has so much depth. You know, it’s so emotional,” she said. “And I literally, I was crying when I — when I did the voiceover. And it was the first thing I did after giving birth. And there’s a scene where I pick the pod. And literally there were … tears falling.”
Sure, Baby Blue has probably seen the film already, but will she be getting any brothers and sisters to share the perks with?
“I would like more children,” she said. “I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being big sister.”
