Queen Beyonce showed the world that when you step out on your dreams they do come into fruition as reality! Currently, she is no.1 on the Billboard charts, breaking records as the most album sales in 100 countries, selling 1 million copies of her self-titled project and even dropping in at Wamart store to deliver $50 gift cards and the news of her cd being for sale there.

Last night, she was in NYC rocking a super sexy Tom Ford ensemble for a special private director screening with an interview at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in Manhattan.

She had masked women handing out popcorn and snacks to the media on hand. She talked about stepping outside the box, being scared to release her surprise album to iTuns and much more.

Highlights of Interview (WATCH VIDEO to the left.):

On her fear of releasing "Beyonce" as a surprise

"I just got off the stage, I had a glass of wine and my cousin Angie was like, 'Are you alright?' because I was talking to myself and I was terrified. I was so scared. I had already gone through all the horrible ways it could go in my mind... I saw it live on iTunes and I waited for the first comment. Then I woke up the next morning and... [breaks into dance]."

"We went through everything to keep it sacred and a surprise," the singer said. "Because there's joy in that and it's missing, and that's something I was able to experience as a kid."

On the project being an exercise in opening up as a woman

"It's amazing how motherhood changes you. I took all the things about myself that I wanted to change and put it in my music. More than the music, I'm proud of myself as a woman. It's about loving your imperfections and the things that make you interesting, because I refuse to let anyone put me in a box."

On why she forfeited a bit of her privace for this album

[Choking back tears] "I have always been very generous, I have been generous on stage and take my pain and joy into my performance. But I'm private... I think it just took me not being anyone's child. Once I had a child, I broke down that fourth wall. I feel liberated, and I feel like I can give my heart to people."
