Beyonce on race: "I've kind of broken barriers, and I don't think people think about my race"

Piers Morgan interviews Beyonce tonight in a worldwide exclusive for the hour airing at 9pmET/PT. She talks about her husband, Jay-Z, her new album "4" and more, including how her race has affected her career. "At least with my career, I've kind of broken barriers, and I don't think people think about my race," she says. "I think they look at me as an entertainer and a musician and I'm very happy that's changing because that's how I look at people."

She also describes the power of the Obama Inauguration moment in 2008.

Beyonce performed at the Inauguration of Pres. Barack Obama. "It was really powerful and overwhelming," she tells Piers Morgan. "I kept telling myself, 'Ok this is not about you, you have to do this for them. You have to do this for history.'"

Watch the full, revealing interview tonight, 9pmET/PT.

    She is such a phenomenal, classy woman. How a woman of her star-power can be so humble is beyond me. You're beautiful, Beyonce. I will be buying the album '4' and I am not necessarily a fan of r&b or pop. I am 50 years old. Thank you for being you. You inspire us all.

    I must admit when it was announced that Piers was taking over Larry King's slot I was doubtful. I am the kind of person to admit when I'm wrong, I was wrong! I watch Piers every night and I am delighted to say this show makes him more real. Sometimes I don't feel he does a great job on some interviews and then he'll blow me away....He actually shows his real self on some interviews and that makes him real.....Great job, Piers, you've got fan!

    Along with almost everything that seems to be developing within this specific area, a significant percentage of perspectives are actually relatively stimulating. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your entire idea, all be it refreshing none the less. It would seem to everyone that your remarks are actually not totally validated and in actuality you are your self not completely certain of the argument. In any event I did enjoy reading through it.
