While on the European leg of her Mrs. Carter World Tour, Beyonce discussed a number of topics with ABC News’ Amy Robach. During the ‘Good Morning America’ interview, Bey talked about her upcoming role in Disney’s ‘EPIC,” motherhood, and her talked about fifth wedding anniversary vacation to Cuba with husband Jay-Z.

“You know, it was such a beautiful trip,” she told ABC News. “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.”

‘EPIC’ features Beyonce in the role of Queen Tara, ruler of the forest. The singer shared that she began working on the film while she was still pregnant, and that she thought about her daughter Blue Ivy’s ability to appreciate the movie by its premiere. She even described her reaction to one particular scene.

“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.”

Bey also revealed that although she feels she’s at the top of her game, but still enjoys simple things like press-on nails, friends and family. And when it comes to making another baby Carter, Beyonce’s all in, saying “I think my daughter need some company.” She spoke with ABC about motherhood, saying that it is her most important job.

“And I am very protective,” she said. “I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life … in the back of my mind, she’s my priority. And life is completely different now. So I’m — I feel really, really just lucky that I can still do what I love, and now have a way bigger meaning. And that’s to be her mother.”
