It’s gonna be what it’s gonna be. So, I’m gonna enjoy this bag of Cheetos.’” – Beyoncé’s Stress Reliever: Find Out What The Singer Does To Relax

  • “Not all stress is bad. It’s served us well since we were running around killing our dinners, picking berries and living in caves (the “fight or fight” response).
