Happy and scared are the feelings that Beyonce Knowles has when she is told by Michelle Obama that her daughters, Sasha and Malia, look up to her.
Being considered as a role model for First Daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama, Beyonce Knowles admits she feels lucky, yet scared due to the responsibility she has to carry on in relation with the honor. "She told me she was very happy that her girls have someone like me to look up to. And I'm like, 'Oh, my God'", says Beyonce when recalling the day she received a phone call from Michelle Obama to thank her for performing on her husband Barack Obama's presidential inauguration.
"You have to feel fortunate to be one of the people whom parents don't mind their children looking up to. The older I get, the more I think about the amount of influence I have on these young girls, and it's scary sometimes," the actress-singer frankly expresses her feeling to the April issue of Vogue. "But I also understand how lucky I am to have that."
Beyonce, furthermore, credits her family for keeping her grounded despite all the achievements she has reached throughout her years in music industry. "We all did this together," says the songstress, adding that she can't imagine having her career without them around.
Speaking of her music mogul husband Jay-Z, Beyonce tells Vogue, "I definitely have learned to be a little more picky from Jay. Because if something makes a lot of sense to everyone else, if he doesn't feel it, he's like, 'I don't want to talk about it.' Which is great."
