Superstar Beyonce decided to strip off and show her trim post-pregnancy figure in her new music videos after working hard to get back into shape.

The singer lost an impressive 65lbs in weight after giving birth and said she was inspired to strip off and gives fans a glimpse of her voluptuous curves.

 

She gave birth to her first child, Blue Ivy, almost two years ago.

 

Speaking in a documentary snippet about the album she revealed, ‘‘I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body.’’

 

‘‘I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back.

 

‘‘I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back,’’ she added.

 

She stripped off for a number of videos, including for the song Partition, which shows her dancing in a strip club.

 

‘‘I know that there's so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth.

 

‘‘You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself.

 

‘‘I don't have any shame about being sexual. I'm not embarrassed about it, and I don't feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have,’’ she added.

 

Beyonce also revealed that she invited a host of writers to a house in The Hamptons to collaborate on the songs on her new album because she was busy being a mother.
