Along with her explaining her Wearable Art Gala costume to viewers:

Bey poignantly spoke in the special about a mother's connection to her children. "When you're a mother, there's a love that you experience with your kids that's deeper than anything you can imagine," she said, via Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab). "The love is beyond Earth and beyond time and space, and it's a connection that will be constant."

She also discussed how much the reaction to "Brown Skin Girl" meant to her. "When I see parents singing 'Brown Skin Girl' to their daughters, making them proud of themselves, just like I do with my daughter, that's what I make music for," she said.
