Beyonce: Mags offer “crazy money”
Beyonce insists she would have never considered selling photos of her hush-hush wedding to Jay-Z to a glossy celebrity magazine. Still, the singer acknowledges that she was amazed at the money offered.
“Now, they offer crazy money that's just ridiculous,” she said in a recent interview, laughing. “But in the end, absolutely not. It's so not worth it. If anything, if you wanna put something out, then put it out, not for (money).”
Beyonce and Jay-Z were married in April in an intimate ceremony in New York City.
“We worked really hard at keeping it private,” she said. “I've always been this way, and he's always been this way, so that's why we complement each other. We always knew that it would be private and quiet, for all the right reasons.”
