Beyoncé's gap year

Beyoncé has revealed that the reason she took a year off from work was to stop her from going crazy.

Speaking on The View, the 'Crazy In Love' star said: "I would sit there at ceremonies and they would give me an award and I was just thinking about the next performance.

"My mother was very very persistent and kept telling me that I had to take care of my mental health and get a chance to really enjoy life and everything I had been able to accomplish because it was starting to become kinda fuzzy. I couldn't tell the difference between which day and what city I was in.

"So I went to see museums, ballets ... the Great Wall of China, I went to the Louvre ... and everywhere I had been to but never got to see."

Though during that time Beyoncé revealed she still worked as she realised how much she enjoyed her job.
