According to her former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams, there once was a time that Beyoncé was insecure about her now-famous “Bootylicous” body.
“On the outside, we were poised and smiling,” Michelle, 32, tells the new issue of In Touch, on stands now. “But behind the scenes we had issues.” The singer admits that in the early days of Destiny’s Child, “I was trying to gain weight, and meanwhile Beyoncé would say, ‘I think my thighs are too big.’”
Michelle says that while Beyoncé may have looked confident onstage, “We were real girls back then,” she says, “flaws and all.”
