"I now know that, yes, I am powerful," she mused to GQ. "I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."
She also 'let slip' some of the people she's been working with on her forthcoming opus: "I've been working with Pharrell and Timbaland and Justin Timberlake and Dream. We all started in the '90s, when R&B was the most important genre, and we all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us."
Talking about how she approaches her 'craft', as is her wont, she compared her performances to those of an athlete.
"One of the reasons I connect to the Super Bowl is that I approach my shows like an athlete," she explained. "You know how they sit down and watch whoever they're going to play and study themselves? That's how I treat this."
It's nice to have her back, isn't it.
