Beyoncé: "You can have a child and still have fun and still be sexy"

Beyoncé wants to show that new mothers can "have fun and be sexy" post-pregnancy.

The sister gave birth to her first child Blue Ivy in 2012 and she released her new self-titled album earlier this month.

She is due to take influence from burlesque dancing in her new 'Partition' video and speaking in a new promo clip, Beyoncé said that she wanted to highlight her post-baby sexiness.

The US star: "I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body. I was 195 pounds when I gave birth, I lost 65 pounds, I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back. I know finding my sensuality, getting back into my body, being proud of growing up, it was important to me that I expressed that in my music because there are so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth.

"You can have your child and still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still have yourself. I don't at all have any shame in being sexual and I'm not embarrassed about it...I don't feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power that we all have."
